Just recently got NR2003, and I have started up an offline series. This is the NCS SimRacing Challenge! This series is posted through YouTube, with each driver and team owner being an active participant through the Discord server.

0DB32FD5-0D34-4554-9F89-927A4714691E.jpeg

In Season 1, the series will run the SNG NPS17 mod. Each car is the generic manufacture, with different decals representing Audi, Chevrolet, Dodge, and Toyota. Ford was an option but was not selected by any team owners. For Season 2, the series will switch to the MENCS19 mod.

There are 22 drivers across 8 teams. There are a total of 42 slots for the series, and the remaining slots will be open for Season 2.

SCHEDULE:
For Season 1, the NCS SimRacing Challenge will run a 16 race schedule.

Each race will premiere on YouTube at 1 PM EST on Sunday. This is the link to my channel for those who will like to subscribe and watch races live.

The points standings will be a full season points system, no Chase or Playoffs.
1st will get 30 points, 2nd gets 25, 3rd gets 23, 4th gets 21, 5th gets 19, 6th gets 17, and then it decreases in one-point increments from there. 22nd (last) gets 1 point.

The first two races have already concluded.

The Daytona 500 was a thriller, start to finish. Cars sliding around, close pack racing, some wrecks here and there. Ian McDaniel passed Aris Yuiko, who led the most laps, with 2 laps to go and the 26 went on to take the win. Here is the Daytona 500 for this who’d like to watch!

Race two, at Auto Club, started the first of three races in California. A restart with 9 to go allowed for a thrilling battle between Josh Moore and Alexander Rowe, and Moore bested Rowe by 0.061 at the line. Highly recommend watching the race!

Here is the current results layout:

Race 3, The California 300 at Riverside International Speedway, sure to be a fun race! Aarwin Basic claimed his second straight pole, and we went 30 laps around this wonderful road course.
View: https://youtu.be/E_DwsOB5MZQ

It was the Christopher Marnell show all race, but a late race strategy call changed things up. As we went caution free the entire event, pit stop strategy played a massive role. The whole field pitted between lap 13 and 15, but some teams opted for a two stop strategy. Marnell was one of them, pitting for a second time with 8 laps to go. This gave the lead to Andrew Fronsee, who went on to coast to victory, running out of fuel in the final corner to take the win.
Here are the official results:

With the third race set and done, we now have a tie atop the points standings. Sean McKean and Henry Guo lead the 22 car standings.

For the 4th race of the season, we went to Irwindale! This 0.5 mile bullring hosted the third and final race of our “California Swing”, and who doesn’t love some good short track racing? 100 laps for the Lucas Oil 400!
View: https://youtu.be/lNNu7FfXJWY

Michael Guthrie started on the pole, and seemed to be the class of the field with Henry Guo behind him. A spin into the barrels by Collin Scarborough brought our first caution on lap 1. Guthrie had led all of the first 34 laps, but lapped cars in front of him tangled, leaving Guthrie, Guo, and other fast cars involved. This meant Christopher Marnell took the lead, hoping to redeem himself after last week. Another caution led to a split strategy once again, as Harry Williams took the lead on lap 45 and never looked back.

Race 5 was at Pikes Peak! The NCS SimRacing Challenge went to the Mile High for the Denver Health 350. A short 50 lap race, with Sean McKean on the pole!
View: https://youtu.be/JWIshQLp6UY

It was a double file start that saw Sean McKean lead the field down into turn 1. An early caution on Lap 2 saw points leader Garrett Lamar take a spin. Another big wreck, involving Nick Roten, Logan Williams, Collin Scarborough, and others, Lamar was caught up again and out of the race for good. Sean McKean led race-high 26 laps, but not without some troubles. Alexander Rowe played the strategy game, and Aris Yuiko also battled hard with the 46 car. But, it was the pole sitter McKean who took the win at PPIR.

Race 6 of the NCS SimRacing Challenge was at COTA! The long, technical, 3.4 mile course played host to the 6th event of the season. Ian McDaniel snagged the pole, and it was sure to be a good one. 29 laps around the track!
View: https://youtu.be/1MH2mZcGWXE

In a race that fuel strategy determined the leaders, it was a great one. The first 10 laps went caution free, until Alexander Rowe got turned around during the pit cycle. Axel Rocha inherited the lead after not putting, and kept it as all drivers pitted under caution. In a race where rivalries were born and tempers flared, the action came with the final restart, as all drivers but two pitted the next lap. As Aarwin Basic and Sean McKean stayed out, they nearly perfected the cinderella run...until having to pit with two to go. Nick Roten inherited the lead, but Collin Scarborough charged from 5th to the front, moved Roten on the final lap, and Scarborough went on to take the victory.

After a thrilling race at Bermuda (don’t know why that part of the thread didn’t post...oops!) which led to a photo finish, it’s time for our 3 race Tennessee Swing! First stop: Nashville Fairgrounds!
Here is Bermuda, if anyone wants to watch!
View: https://youtu.be/o8qrh4mGR9Y


And here is Nashville Fairgrounds, the Kroger 400!
View: https://youtu.be/3pKT-iraJsA


With Chrysus Racing Team teammates Norris Andrews and Ricardo Garcia sharing the front row, it was bound to be a fun one! Andrews just lost a photo finish last weekend, and Garcia dropped to last in points, so both needed a good race. Garcia took the lead as the green flag dropped, and never looked back. It was a wild wreckfest, with a record 8 caution periods during the 100 lap race. One memorable wreck, where rivals Ian McDaniel and Garrett Lamar tangled on the frontstretch, caused both drivers to be enraged at one another over the radio. But it was the Garcia Show out front, leading all 100 laps en route to victory.

After a wreckfest of a race at Nashville Fairgrounds, it was time for the second part of our Tennessee Swing - Bristol! The Bass Pro Shops Night Race, with Bones Motorsports teammates Ian McDaniel and Collin Scarborough on the front row.
View: https://youtu.be/Dki7AGCSB3s

It was a good clean start, but Ian McDaniel and Collin Scarborough stayed side-by-side for the first few laps, creating some intense racing. It was The Cooler Sam who eventually got around both of them, and took the lead at lap 15. During green flag pit stops on lap 82, Sean McKean entered the track at the wrong time, and caused a multi car incident, parking him and Basic from the race. There were some other incidents, including Marnell dumping Crook, Harry Williams dumping Lamar, and Garcia dumping Henry Guo, which caused a multi car pileup and heated tempers after the race. When it was all said and done, The Cooler Sam led 110 of 125 laps to win at Bristol.

This week, we went to Nashville Superspeedway for the Sam Bass 400! 75 laps around the 1.3 mile track.
View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwHIOBwPeNc

It was Josh Moore and Aris Yuiko who shared the front row, and it was sure to be a good one! Aris Yuiko took the lead on lap 3, and Alexander Rowe, who was battling to take the points lead, took 1st on lap 12 before the caution came out for Nick Roten blowing an engine, with Christopher Marnell and Aarwin Basic being involved as well. When we restarted, Alexander Rowe and Logan Williams battled before the 58 took the lead at lap 30. Lap 45 saw green flag pit stops, with Sean McKean having a mishap and sliding through the grass to lose valuable positions. Aris Yuiko inherited the lead, and 3, sometimes 4-wide battles for the lead ensued. Yuiko held on for the victory though, and won his first race of the season.

We travel to Upstate New York for the Backstretch Report 350 at Watkins Glen! 23 laps around this beautiful road course, and was sure to be a good one. Ian McDaniel on the pole, ready to race around for race 11 of 16.
View: https://youtu.be/5xbj1CD9Pig


Ian McDaniel on the pole, Axel Rocha alongside him, we were off and away for the 11th race of the season! But as the cars were exiting turn 1, a hard incident that involved Garrett Lamar and Harry Williams that took both drivers out of the race. Lamar was shaken up but okay after the wreck. Pit strategy was afoot today, as drivers opted to take 2 tires instead of 4 under caution, putting new faces out front. This put Nick Roten out front, who led until lap 10 when McDaniel took the lead back. Norris Andrews and Aris Yuiko tangled off the final corner to bring out a caution on lap 11, and Roten regained the lead from put strategy. A spin on the restart brought the caution out again on lap 14, and it was McDaniel and Rowe who battled after the restart. Rowe held the lead until Andrew Fronsee got a huge run and took the lead away, and the 85 led from lap 20 onward to become the first 2-time winner this season.
