    After evaluating the amount of drivers that are automatically locked in into the All-Star Challenge (should the full list of drivers listed in the Showdown/ASC Flats thread compete) alongside the amount of drivers that would join them should the race have been run as I previously had it planned, it basically would've included mostly everyone.... 19 drivers, plus 14 heat race qualifiers, plus the three drivers transferring from the LCQ.... That's 36 drivers......


    Because of that, the amount of drivers that would transfer from the heat races has been reduced from 14 to 4 (Top 2 drivers from each), and only the driver who wins the LCQ will transfer alongside the Fan Vote winner. This currently has us at a current max of 25 drivers, sans 2017 winners (as there are none yet), but including those not confirmed to return from last year.

    Will Rookies, or those running for ROTY, be required to use a decal on their cars?

    You will need rookie stripes; no Sunoco decal is necessary.

    The calendar needs one more SuperSpeedway and one more Short Track to round out the schedule. Tracks currently on the roster are:

    SuperSpeedway
    1. Daytona
    2. Talladega
    3. Coca-Cola
    4. Outward
    Short Track
    1. Bristol
    2. Martinsville
    3. Richmond
    4. ORP
    Please make sure any short tracks you suggest can sustain 42 cars before posting.

    Iowa for short track
    Armory Digital for superspeedway, even though I was hoping that would be a Truck/possibly National Series exclusive.

    What about Wilkesboro for a short track or does it not hold that many?

    Wilkes (at least the version I have) doesn't support 42 cars out of the box.

    In any case, I don't feel that N.Wilkes would be a worthwhile addition. We ran this event back in season 1, and only two different cars ever led a lap. The winner was not challenged at all and passing was minimal.
