Published On: December 26th, 2017
Twitchy Race Reports Bringing ASRS #Back2Cup The American Sim Racing Series drivers are back home resting up after the holidays and preparing for what is about to come. What is coming is a very exciting time for ASRS. The series is back to featuring the premier Cup Series racecars and the drivers and fans could not be more excited.
On tap for this season is 16 races from tracks ranging from the tiny paperclip in Martinsville to the monstrous D-shaped oval of Talladega. The races will put the drivers to the test as they will be much longer than their Sam Maxwell Customs Truck Series counterparts.
An added treat for the upcoming season will be the addition of broadcasting by Prime Time Racing TV. Drivers always enjoy performing well in a spotlight and there can be no bigger spotlight than a broadcasted race. Broadcasted races are always appreciated by the iRacing community and cannot happen without the dedication of the sponsors. Twitchy Race Reports, Sam Maxwell Customs and all of our sponsors will play an integral role in the upcoming season through their series sponsorship and various race sponsorships. We at ASRS are very gracious for their willingness to bring more fun and excitement to the league.
ASRS President Jim Foose commented when asked about the addition of the Premier Cup Series to the ASRS stable of series: “Bringing Cup back to ASRS has been a goal of mine the last two years, it’s something I’ve felt we needed to be a destination iRacing league. With the help of Twitchy Race Reports we are making it happen.”
Competition director Tom Giannini was just as enthusiastic about the upcoming season: “I’m extremely excited for this season, not only as the competition director, but as a driver as well. I feel it is going to be one of our most competitive and fun seasons to date. With how the Cup cars drive, the length of the races and the level of competition, how can you not be excited to compete for a spot in the Chase and make some noise in the playoffs?”
The Playoffs will return to ASRS for the upcoming season with a 12 race regular season followed by the Round of 10. The Round of 10 consists of three races and will determine the field for the Final Championship Four at the Homestead Miami Speedway. Be sure to tune into Prime Time Racing TV and follow along with all of the action when the series takes the first green flag of 2018 at Richmond International Raceway for the #Back2Cup 200! The green flag will fly at approximately 9:00 p.m. Eastern time on January 9th!
