HQS Team Manager Connor Swift Says Owner Atkins Not Focused On Racing

The team manager of HQS Racing, Connor Swift has said that Ben Atkins' focus is not with racing at the moment. Swift, who has worked with Atkins in Dash Cup and FARC racing in the past, has admitted that the team owner of HQS Racing has been distancing himself from the race team, and has not seemed to have the motivation when behind the wheel of a car either. Atkins has been racing part time in both the PART and NAAC series this year, and registered three wins in the second tier of PART racing before its closure.

"At the beginning of the year, he was really hardworking for the team, but now you can tell that he doesn't really have his eyes set on racing." said Swift, "Last year, he stayed up working on the cars with the teams, and he was always working for the team... now he's just there when he needs to be. Even when he's racing, he doesn't really seem too bothered about where he finishes as long as he doesn't tear up the equipment."

Atkins and his wife, Hannah Percy, a former Dash Cup champion, have been expecting a child since mid-May, meaning that Percy is about halfway through her pregnancy. Swift said this does correlate with when Atkins' motivation seemed to dip down.

"I get why he would be disinterested after the year he's had. He's even told me the biggest success he's had this year isn't even his race wins; it's been Hannah's pregnancy. He's incredibly proud of that."

Atkins was asked for comment, but has yet to say anything.

Atkins uninjured in massive practice crash. Not racing the CSH Pistons 160

The driver of the # 20 car Ben Atkins was released from the care center a few hours after getting cut out from his car. No injuries to be reported, although extensive tests were done to assure such.

He was unable to come out due to the fact the window got damaged in the crash, making exit under his own power impossible, the safety crew made a makeshift roof hatch to help extracting Atkins.

Atkins and HQS Racing have yet to speak about the incident, but the only thing known is that when the race comes, Atkins will not be the driver of the # 20 being replaced by Thomas Culler.

Troy Griffith Confirmed Out at Gailey Enterprises; Jonathan Haskins Takes the Wheel of Main Series Entry in 2018

This week, Gailey Enterprises finally confirmed the long-standing rumors surrounding driver Troy Griffith -- that he would be leaving the team at the end of the 2017 season. The announcement came at a Monday press conference following the CSH Pistons 150, at which Griffith was not present. Roger Gailey spoke briefly about the departure, saying "Troy's decision to leave this team had been decided since Mid-Ohio. He just doesn't want to be here facing the press to tell you this. That's his choice. He was fed up with the bickering and drama as much as I was."

At this press conference, Roger Gailey introduced his pick for the now vacant left by Troy Griffith's depature -- 25-year-old Jonathan Haskins, out of Dalton, GA. Haskins came up through the same ranks as Chase Lynch, as a well-known competitor and 2015 champion of the American Short Track Challenge Series (ASTCS). Haskins is known for his very eccentric, jovial and boisterous attitude, yet he has something of a notoriety attached to him due to his unconventional off-track activities. In stark contrast to Lonny Rawlins, he has proved to be a very inconsistent, chaotic, and sometimes reckless driver -- in his championship-winning 2015 season of ASTCS, he finished in the Top 5 of all the races he didn't crash in or retire from, which only amounted to around 68% of the races that season. Haskins said of his championship feat, "We just had more races go right for us than wrong this season."

Gailey confirmed that the #39 currently piloted by Troy Griffith would be renumbered to #80 in 2018, but indicated that sponsor details are still up in the air. DHL may return as the primary sponsor, but alternatively, Haskins may bring one of his own sponsors to the hood of the #80 car. Gailey also apologized for the relative lateness of this announcement, saying, "We didn't have a driver until just last week. Otherwise we'd have announced it sooner."

Griffith's future plans are unknown, but a popular rumor is that he may be looking for an ASCC ride full-time in 2018.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry, I still have no idea what to do for a sponsor for this car. Kinda want to do something with either a black-white-orange color scheme or a orange-white-teal color scheme, so I'm looking for sponsors that use those colors. I'm open to suggestions.

Okay, so after working a bit into the new NAAC TMPedia page I was able to create some space, which now allows me to actually run the Canadian and Super Late Models, the ratings system will be the same as the Championship Series, in which I'll define the seeding for each team and driver.

Forgot to add, if you want any teams in the secondary tours, hit me up. The due date will be on the 15th of August, so you can have time to carefully plan stuff out.

25th Tears Tryhard 500: Final Edition on Veterans Day

The Innaugural NAAC Cisco Championship Series season comes to its final stop, at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

Nine drivers come into the championship race with a mathematical chance of winning the title.

1. Taylor Matthews - 1426 Points, 4 Wins, 11th Avg. Finish
2. Jamaal Schmidt - 1357 Points, 2 Wins, 11th Avg. Finish
3. Lee Schmidt - 1300 Points, 2 Wins, 12th Avg. Finish
4. Harmony Pettinger - 1286 Points, No Wins, 11th Avg. Finish
5. Andrea-Lynn Caldwell - 1269 Points, 1 Win, 11th Avg. Finish
6. Flannery Moore - 1230 Points, No Wins, 11th Avg. Finish
7. Kelly Ashcroft - 1212 Points, 2 Wins, 14th Avg. Finish
8. Bianca Dawson - 1169 Points, 3 Wins, 13th Avg. Finish
9. David LeBlanc - 1153 Points, 2 Wins, 13th Avg. Finish

Race Format

The format will be the same as used in the previous season, with adaptions to NAAC's ruleset:

Three segments of different lengths will be contested, the first being 250 miles long (94 laps), the second 150 miles (57 laps) and the final 100 miles long (38 laps).

All cars that complete the first two segments will receive bonus points in the following format:

bonus points:
1. 65
2. 50
3. 47
4. 44
5. 41
6. 38
7. 36
8. 34
9. 32
10. 30
11. 28
12. 26
13. 24
14. 22
15. 20
16. 18
17. 16
18. 14
19. 12
20. 10

21st on down: 5

Cars that fail to finish one of the first two segments will not receive bonus points

Instead of the usual 10 point bonus for the driver that leads the most laps and the pole position, that bonus will be doubled. The lap leading bonus will still be 5 points.

Drivers that finish up to 3 laps behind the leader will be allowed to continue in the race back in the lead lap.

The starting order of segments 2 and 3 will be determined by reversing the finishing order of the lead lap cars in the previous segment, all cars that were lapped but continued on will start at the back of the field at the order they completed the segment.

Qualifying

69 cars contested qualifying on Thursday to define the field for Saturday's race in group time trials. All championship contenders were locked into the race but still had to take part in the time trials, this meant 31 spots were up for grabs.

The Indiana brothers look to win first championship in racing.

Lee and Jamaal Schmidt, brothers from Indianapolis, Indiana, come to the Tryhard 500 with a dream, to have one of them end the day celebrating the NAAC championship, also a first for team owner Ernest Lewis, who fell short last year with Rebecca Pellerin, leading to Carsons winning the title.

Jamaal: We never expected to be this close this year, Rebecca had the best car, while we weren't competitive last year, but it was quite shocking this year, even David won twice. Rebecca would've loved to win it herself, but she's really happy for all of us, she left her family team, to help us, and she's proud where the team has gone, we got 3 cars in the final race.

Lee: Like my brother said, it's been quite the journey, our race team has gotten better, last year Rebecca was carrying this team, but this year it all clicked, I won twice, David also won 2, same with Jamaal, and Rebecca still won 3 races, and probably would've been the title leader if she stayed. It's going to be fun racing with the Matthews-Atlantic group for this, may the better team wins.

LeBlanc calling it a career in NAAC after Tryhard 500

In the press conference with all 9 challengers for the NAAC title, David LeBlanc announced this would be the last race in his full-time career in the premier NAAC series. Future plans were not announced for David.

LeBlanc: It's been fun this year, finally won my first race, got another, and we're in the title fight, but I think this is the right time to call it quits, full-time, you might see me sometimes in the paddock, but I want to race back home, and start a family, and I just want to thank Ernest Lewis for this oppertunity.

In a later press release, the NAAC Zippo National Series driver, Emilie Potvin would be replacing David in the 88.

Tony Long Reflects on NAAC 2017:

As NAAC closes that chapter on 2017, Tony Long took a look back on the 2017 season.

"Overall" Tony started, "this season was a let down production wise but not in future plans. It could have went much better than what the result was."

The season started out promising with a 13th place finish in the season opener in Fontana but slowly went downhill from there. While he only competed in 7 races, Tony failed to finish 4 of the 7 including the Tryhard 500.

"In my defense, 3 of the 4 DNFs were not of my doing" Tony added. "I was just wrong place wrong time for the 3 but the 4th I wish I had back."

The other DNF Tony is referring to was sprint 2 at Road America. After qualifying 4th and having arguably the fastest car on track, Tony took the lead early before going wide in the carousel and smacking the tire wall.

"That DNF hurt because I was going to win that race because I have always been good at Road America and we had a rocket ship for a car."

Tony is hoping that his fortunes in 2018 will be different with new cars,
new race format, and a new teammate. For 2018, Tony's part time effort will be joined by a full time effort by his 31 year old brother Ryan.

"Ryan and I are excited about what 2018 holds. Ryan has been preparing for 2018 for about 9 months now and I want him to succeed."

When asked about what his plans were for the future, Tony said, "this (NAAC) is just a stepping stone for plans that I have for 2019 and eventually the 2020s."

Spoiler:
Bittersweet ending for Ernest Lewis Racing

Coming into segment 3, both Lee Schmidt and brother Jamaal, had a chance of claiming the title.
But on lap 8, a multi-car crash collected the #43 and ended his race. Taylor Matthews got into an accident, meaning all Jamaal needed to do was a top 3 finish, but with a few laps remaining,
the tire went down on the #55, and ended his title hopes.

Jamaal Schmidt: First of all, congrats to Taylor, on an amazing season, and just thanks to all my guys for bringing me a really good car, but sadly, an unexpected failure ended our hopes,
but for a brother combo from Indy, 2nd/4th ain't bad in the points. I can't wait for next year.


LeBlanc ends full-time career with 3rd career victory

Coming to the racetrack, David was there to win it all, he had nothing to lose, was barely in the title hunt, but he still came out the victor.

LeBlanc: We won the 500, it's an amazing experience, I never imagined after the struggles we went through at times, we won this race, I'm a road course specialist, I never imagined being in victory lane here at Talladega. What a way to end a full-time career eh? *laughs* I'm still gonna pop up a few times per year, and I'm sure Emilie will do an amazing job with the 88 crew.

Jethro Jones looking for a new ride
2017 #72 driver Jethro Jones has left the Rocky Mountain Racers team and is currently looking for a new driving opportunity for 2018. The move comes as RMR have announced that Pete Moeller will also be leaving the team to be replaced by former World Challenge Cup driver Siobhan McLean, who brings Chipotle sponsorship to the team. RMR development driver Heidi Lewis will replace Jones in the #72 Furniture Row Lenard. RMR will also be expanding their development team to a two-car effort, featuring Scotty Redden and Esme Thomas.

Ben Schneider steps back
Meanwhile, over at H2 Motorsports, #98 driver Ben Schneider will hang up his helmet at the end of 2017 in order to make way for his younger sister Ellie to take over the ride. Ellie will bring Whole Food Markets sponsorship to the renumbered #82 machine.

Simon out at Yokoyama
Jesse Simon has been dumped by the Mason Yokoyama team and is on the hunt for a new deal for 2018. The racer has been in the series for the past few seasons but has yet to race with a competitive team. Simon is hopeful that someone will offer him a package to race for the championship win.

Re: 2018 North Amercan Auto Club

Post by bsoyuz Yesterday at 1:11 pm

Due to an unfortunate issue with my hard drives, killing the files on both, I have completely lost everything for all of my offline leagues (this includes, results, PSDs, TGA flats, carfiles, among other stuff).

In good English: Everything got Fucked

So, right now I do not know what I'll exactly do with the 2018 season. So it's postponed indefinitely.

Because of it, I'll probably rework the whole concept of NAAC to fit a better time frame for myself, so all Silly Season changes are hereby voided, except for the mod change for DMRCup11, I'll probably work on the templates a bit.

I'll update as we go.
