RUSTY TAILPIPE WINTER TOURNAMENT UPDATE 11/15/2000
Hello NOSCAR Racers,
Our initial BGN season has come to a close with Dan Johnson
winning top honors. There are only two races left in the
WC division with Dan Johnson already attaining enough points to be
declared the winner in both divisions.
The Rusty Tailpipe Winter Tournament will consist of the
following five races.
Dan, note AI settings!
18th. Lowe's [night] AI 98%
2nd. Talladega AI 101%
25th. Watkins Glen AI [to
9th. Richmond AI 99%
16th. Michigan AI [to be determined]
Bill Boyd is the Tournament Director with Dan Johnson
graciously serving as the Race Director. I want to thank Dan for
serving in this capacity. I also want to thank Mike Schrader and Dan
for their contribution to prize pool.
There are special considerations for this tournament.
They will be enumerated in the following paragraphs.
Firstly, ONLY DRIVERS WITH FOUR OR LESS TOTAL WINS in
either division may participate. Why? To give the
rest of us the opportunity to enjoy the thrill and satisfaction of
winning a race online.
Dan, Note the following race settings!
Secondly, only NOSCAR members of either division
may participate. The races will be run on Saturdays and will be run
at 45% length. Setups will be O P E N. Race temperture will be
clear and 70 degrees.
Road courses will be run with ARCADE damage and with NO
YELLOW FLAGS. Single file starts will be used on road
All races will be run with a 20 car field. Any positions
not filled by live drivers will be run by a AI driver/car. Ensure that
you have installed the multi.lst that has been forwarded to you. Your
car should be first on the list.
We will be running with the same cars that were used during
the regular season. NO NEW CARS PLEASE.
Thirdly, as an added feature, there will be monetary prizes
awarded to the first five places at the conclusion of the
tournament. All prizes will be awarded through PayPal. Only drivers
with a PayPal account will be awarded prize winnings.
The Championship prizes are: 1st.
40$ 2nd. 30$
3rd. 15$ 4th.
10$ 5th. 5$
If upon placing in the top five, a driver has no PayPal
account, such prize will be donated to the server fund. A PayPal
account is free. A PayPal account is not required. www.paypal.com
Fourthly, SPECIAL RACE INCIDENT PROCEDURES.
All races will be saved as a replay. Incidents will be
reviewed. If it is determined that an incident is clearly CAUSED by a
poor driving decision or lack of ability, AND the incident forces anothr
driver OUT OF THE RACE, the offending driver
will be awarded placing points one below the driver taken out. This
includes AI drivers. This is done, regardless of where
the offending driver actually finished the race in question.
If a individual driver is again found guilty of CAUSING
another car out of a race, that driver will be placed five places
below the driver taken out. A third such incident will place the offending
driver ten places lower, etc.
Other than what is stated above, normal NOSCAR protest
procedures will apply.
What I am attempting to establish here is a respectful
give and take racing atmosphere during the tournament. Let's all
be determine to race hard, fair and smart. If we do, we'll all have
fun, and maybe finish the races together.
Fifthly, there is an additional 40$ Racing Team Prize.
PayPal requirements apply. The total points accumulated by both
team members will determine the winner.
Team standings in no way affect the individual tournament
standings or prizes. They will be determined by individual
