American SimRacing League is pleased to announce its plans for the upcoming Spring 2021 season of Elite Series competition. The Spring 2021 season will feature iRacing’s Class A stock cars–the NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, Toyota Camry and Ford Mustang.

Prizes:

The Spring 2021 champion will receive their choice of a championship ring or Howard Miller trophy desk clock.The four grand slam events are designated as Daytona, Watkins Glen, Bristol and Indianapolis. If a driver wins all four of these races, they will win a $100 grand prize. If a driver wins three of the four events, they will win a $25 consolation prize.All pole winners over the 2021 calendar year will be eligible to participate in the Clash at Daytona, which will precede the Spring 2022 season opener. The winner of the Clash will win a $50 prize.The full-time driver with the fewest incident points over the course of the season will win the $10 safest driver bonus.

Schedule:

The Spring 2021 schedule will feature many of NASCAR’s top circuits from yesterday and today, as well as a couple of America’s top local short tracks.

Playoff Format:

The Elite Series will build upon the drama from its debut season, featuring an expanded playoff format with a higher weight placed on regular season points position. The new four-race playoff structure will still grant an automatic berth to regular season race winners, but will now increase to a total of 16 drivers. Among the changes to the playoff system will be automatic advancement to the championship race when an eligible driver wins a playoff race. ASL will also introduce a system which rewards the highest finishing drivers in the regular season points standings with some protection from being eliminated early in the playoff bracket.

 

Driver Registration:

Dues for new drivers are $20 for the Spring 2021 season or $35 for the entire 2021 calendar year.On December 13, ASL will begin open recruitment to the general iRacing community. Target criteria for new drivers without a referral will be an iRating between 2,500 and 5,000.
