(CLEVELAND, OH) There’s going to be more short track racing in the near future for members of American Sim Racing as the league announced today the addition of an ARCA style series to run on Wednesday nights beginning in February, 2023.
The Pro Cup Series will feature a diverse schedule that will race on superspeedways, intermediate speedways and short tracks. Many of which have been featured on the ARCA Menards Series schedule currently and historically.
2023 ASR Pro Cup Series Schedule
The Pro Cup Series will feature much of the same rules as the ASR Truck Series, which features fixed setups with tire limits. While the schedule will diversify, so will the race format with a guaranteed “stage break” at/around the 40% mark of each race. The stage break is seen as a necessity as the series will race at several short tracks with extremely tight pit road exits along with a way to add a new element of strategy into the series. Drivers will not be required to pit during the stage break and may remain on track to restart ahead of the drivers that choose to stop during the break.
“Our intention with the Pro Cup Series is to grow our league and bridge the gap between short track racers and big track racers on the iRacing service, we are committing to this now to build interest and to take input from drivers both inside ASR and outside of our league in regards to what they want to see from this type of league” said ASR Promoter Jim Foose. “My hope is that we can grow the fields in this series as the season progresses and build up the Truck Series and other events we offer throughout the year”.
American Sim Racing is actively recruiting for it’s Tuesday night Truck Series and Wednesday night “Pro Cup” Series. All ASR events feature fixed setups and tire limits. Learn more by visiting www.americansimracing.com today, you can join by simply filling out an Entry Form.
