    Yes, some of this was taken directly from last seasons rules thread, because the rules are 99% the same. I think only the special paint scheme allowance is new.

    Are we allowed to have a 3rd sponsor for the special scheme, similarly to what the Cup Series allows?

    I have a "2016" DW12 template that was used for the Blazin' Pedals 2016 Indy 500 race that includes the "position" thingy that Indycar has this season on the engine covers..... Not sure if @TruckSeries would be willing to update to the template I have though as it's really up to him on what template(s) we have to use.........

    Is it different from the cup mod, where the template is the same no matter the manufacturer?

    I'd be willing to use this template as long as Blazin' Pedals is.
    The templates are all the same for the same manufacturer. There's layers on the template for each logo. There's also the RC and oval parts on the same template.

    Alright, so I got in touch (via Facebook) with one of the Blazin' Pedals admins who put together the BP Indy 500 event, and he a-okayed the use of the template. So here's the link that was provided for those participating in the BP Indy 500, which I have made sure still works

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/sc2znz6c4bp3qj8/2016 IndyCar Template.psd?dl=0

    Attached is a screen-grab of proof of the confirmation.

    Thanks Jacob. This template is now the required template. Use your number where the position lights are.

    Alright guys, first things first, the schedule resumes tomorrow with practice and qualifying at Montreal. Next up is the bigger topic of this post...

    I will be stepping down as SRD IndyCar Director at the conclusion of this season. I bit off more than I could chew with this series. I haven't provided quality broadcasts or racing to you guys, and I believe you deserve better. I'm just not the person that can give you that right now. Thank you for your patience this season, it's been one of learning for me, definitely. Thank you also to those who gave me this opportunity.
