    CMS-TXL Wednesday Night Racing Series
    2019 Season 2


    To continue the success of Season 1, we are kicking off Season 2 with pre-season events that are already in progress, and a change in the format…some of this has already been posted in the forums, but the following will outline the upcoming season format as well as links to registration and rules threads.

    This season is different because we will be combining two different series, running on alternate weeks, with points titles for each series as well as an overall combined championship!

    Drivers can enter and race in one or both series, although we would love to see as many cars on the track each week as possible!

    One series we are racing is the GT3 Sports Car Series, a 10-race season that will follow the official iRacing VRS Endurance Series schedule.

    For the GT3 Series we will separate entrants into three classifications: Pro, Am, Silver

    All drivers/classifications will race a GT3 series car, which includes the following:

    Audi R8
    BMW Z4
    Ferrari 488
    McLaren MP4-12C
    Mercedes AMG

    Each classification will have a Driver’s Championship, and points will be awarded each race to entrants based on their finish within their own class. The classifications will race with assigned car numbers to aide in distinguishing the classes on track during the race, as outlined in the Sign-Up thread found HERE, and number plates for each class that can be downloaded HERE. Use these plates on your personal paint scheme in place of the iRacing default number plates that are located in the templates. Resize the new plates as needed for your vehicle, checking alignment with the existing iRacing plate, and make sure to hide or delete the iRacing plates from your skin prior to the race season. If you need assistance with this, please feel free to contact myself or Miguel Alcrudo, we're always ready to help out!!

    We will also have an overall Team Championship for this series. Each team is limited to 4 drivers on the roster, and must be set before the first race of the season. Team Points in each race will be awarded using the awarded driver’s points of the top two finishers for each team regardless of classification. Each team must be registered prior to the first race of the season, and a thread has been made outlining the team based on registration. That thread can be found HERE. Teams with more than 4 drivers need to break up their teams if they want all drivers to be a part of the Team Championship, for example, Alcrudo Racing has created two teams, Alcrudo Racing Red and Blue, and listed their members for each team. Please post in that thread any changes that need to be made regarding the Team Championship. Drivers will not be allowed to move between teams during the season, but a driver that is not part of a team can join a team and score points moving forward at any point in the season.

    This series will race every other week beginning on June 12th. You can change your choice of car up to the first race of the official season. If you change to a different car during the season, you will receive a 25 point deduction to your Driver’s points (and Team points should you belong to a team).

    All races in this series will be 75 minutes long, and will require a pit stop. Fuel tank capacity will be limited to 80%, so everyone will be forced to stop for fuel at some point, with tires being optional.


    On the weeks between GT3 Series races, we will run the MX-5 Club Series, a 10-race season using the Mazda MX-5 2016 Miata with fixed setups, and a schedule that follows the iRacing Official Advanced Mazda series. There will be a Driver’s Championship for this series, but without classifications. All drivers will be scored in the same class each race. The first points race of this season is schedule for June 19th. The idea behind this series is a throwback to the Driver's Development Series here at Champion Motorsports, where drivers can focus more on racecraft and less on setups and pit strategy, as well as enjoy themselves racing in a spec series!

    All races in this series will be 40 minutes long, with no pit stop required.


    The rules for both series will follow the Champion Motorsports General Competition Guidelines which can be found HERE

    *The rules linked to above are required reading by all participants, and must be followed, no exceptions*

    Additional rules and or race information will be added to each week’s Race Briefing, which will be posted during the weekend prior to the upcoming scheduled event.


    The points system for both series will be as follows:

    1st place - 35 points

    2nd - 32

    3rd - 30

    4th - 28

    5th thru 20th - 26 to 11 [reducing by 1 each position]

    Remainder of field - 10 points each

    Each driver’s two lowest point results will be dropped to decide the Driver’s Championship.

    A driver must complete at least one lap to receive points for a race



    The final schedule for this combined series will be posted here when the official iRacing Season 3 schedule is released this week. To aide in everyone scheduling the race events, the following outline should help:

    Race Night Series Track Minutes
    5/15/2019 GT3 Monza 75
    5/22/2019 MX-5 Daytona RC 40

    The final word regarding this series is simple....we want everyone to have fun, enjoy themselves, be respectful of others, and be prepared come race night.

    Let's keep this simple for everyone involved (including the admins!) and if you have any questions as we head towards another exciting season of racing, please don't hesitate to post them here!!

    Thanks everyone, we appreciate everyone's interest in the upcoming season and look forward to racing with you!!

    Pre-Season Race - MX-5 Club Series at Daytona Road Course
    Wednesday, May 22, 2019


    After last week's race at Monza in the technological rides known at GT3's, this week (and every alternating week throughout the season) we are stepping back and dropping into the Mazda MX-5 Miata for some great racing action. Time to work on blipping the throttle (if you so wish) and finding the braking threshold in these incredibly fun racers!

    Now you may ask...so, what makes this series different from the iRacing Advanced MX-5 Series?

    Well, for one thing, we didn't want to make it very different, and in face, we wanted to encourage everyone to participate in the office series as well, so just like the upcoming GT3 season, this series will use the same track and layout as the official iRacing series!!

    But there are some differences too.

    1. This will be a fixed setup series. The fixed setup needs to be downloaded and placed in the setup folder (.../iRacing\setups\mx5 mx52016) and the server will be set to force this setup for everyone to use.

    Setup Download: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...5-baseline.sto (You may have to right click and "download as" depending on your browser settings)

    This setup is the same as the baseline setup in iRacing, except that more fuel was put in the tank....why? See #2....

    2. Race lengths will be 40 minutes long. The baseline setup's fuel level was way too close for comfort on making that distance, which is why we are using a modified version. The official series runs 25 and 45 minute races, with the longer length requiring a pit stop. We didn't want to have pit stops, or make these races too long, and 40 sounds about right. After the race, be sure and let us know what you think!


    For this series, the admins wanted this to be more fun, less stressful, and still be a way of working on your racecraft and driver development! That's why we went with a baseline setup, so that everyone could spend more time on the track turning laps, and less time tweaking the car. Work on being a faster driver, finding the faster line, and in the race study your competitors and find a way to get past. All of those factors will end up making you a better driver all the way around.

    For this week's race, we only want everyone to show up and race, don't worry about car numbers or classifications, we really haven't made decisions on any of that yet. There will be a points championship for this series, the rest will be ironed out soon.

    As always, an Orange Zone will be in effect for the first lap of this race:



    This zone constitutes the outlined Orange Zone area on the track during the 1st Lap. This zone should be regarded as a PASS WITH EXTREME CAUTION area during the first lap of any race. Should an incident occur because a driver chooses to attempt a pass within this “Orange Zone” the driver initiating the pass will likely be held responsible.

    The Orange Zone will run from start of the race to the exit of T3 (exit of the International Horseshoe)


    Notes for the race

    Be mindful of cars exiting pits, do not cross the blend line!!

    If you wreck, HOLD THE BRAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pit stops are NOT required for this race!

    No Incident Count Limit or Fast Repairs (Future events will have an Incident Count Limit)

    Have fun!



    Our race night schedule for Wednesday:

    Practice - Server opens at 8:20pm Eastern US/7:20 Central US/12:00am GMT

    Practice session will be 70 minutes.

    Qualifying begins at 9:30pm Eastern US/8:30pm Central US/1:30am GMT

    Qualifying will be 10 minutes, 4-lap, solo event with remaining time as a short break before the race starts. This is different from last season, and a test for the upcoming season.

    Race - 40 Minutes


    No Fast Repairs!

    No required Pit Stop


    As always, let's have a great time with these cars, it's a long race so don't be "that guy", and after the race come back to the forums and recap your night! We want this to be a very successful part of the CMS Wednesday Night iRacing Series, so please plan on coming out and having fun!

    CMS-TXL Sports Car Series Power Rankings
    2019 S1 - 7 of 9 Races Completed


    After the twilight race at Mid-Ohio, there's been some movement in the Power Rankings...and while provisionals can hurt, this list is more about exceptional weeks and seasons, and giving credit where it's due.

    So now, I give to you, the updated Power Rankings!! Let the debates begin!!


    GTE-Pro Class

    At Mid-Ohio, the turnout for this class was low for the second race in a row, but that didn't prevent a duel to the checkers up front, and a change in the rankings:

    1. Leif Peterson - Holding onto the top spot, Leif had a second place finish, but continues to finish on the podium. With a second place finish, his average finish this season is now 2.7!! He has a firm hold at the top of the points standings as well, but it's not over yet!

    2. Clark Archer - With another win at Mid-Ohio, his third of the season, Clark moves up into second in the rankings this week. With his average finish now a class best 2.5, missing one race has hurt his chances for taking the championship. However, there's racing left on the schedule, and the title hasn't been decided yet!

    3. Jason Lundy - With his third podium finish in a row this past week, Jason has been moving up the points week after week, which many of us are not surprised to see. Don't be surprised to see Jason snag a win before this season is over.


    GT3-Gents Class

    Like the Pro Class, this division saw a dramatic decrease in entrants at Mid-Ohio, but you can bet on seeing that number climb when we get to Watkins Glen this week. This division has averaged 8.4 drivers per start so far this season.

    1. Paul Hamilton - Because of yet another podium finish at Mid-Ohio (his 6th out of 7 races this season!), Paul hangs on to the top spot in our rankings and in the points. With two races left, he almost has the points title in hand, and just needs to keep doing what he has done all season...be consistent.

    2. Jay Dargert - Taking the win at Mid-Ohio, Jay moves up to second in our Power Rankings this week, and his overall average finish for the season is 4.8, with two wins and three podiums out of 5 races he has started. I'll make the prediction now, Mr. Dargert will take the win at Watkins Glen this week based on his past record there!

    3. Randy Drumhiller - Randy continues to improve, and moves up a spot in the Power Rankings this week, primarily from his consistency. Starting the season with back to back podiums, Randy has been just off the bottom step in his other four races, and will be tough at the Glen!

    4. Anthony James - Despite missing this week's race, AJ's season and consistency, particularly his 3-race win streak of recent, keeps him firmly cemented in the Top 5.

    5. Scott Burke - With a second place finish at Mid-Ohio, and a season average finish of 2.75 in 4 races (Taking the win in the season opener at Daytona!), Scott's a front-runner whose recent podiums pulled him into the Power Rankings this week.


    GTE-AM Class

    Continuing to be the largest class starting the race each week, this division is averaging just over 14 drivers starting each week. That means a bad night hurts just a little more, and a good night feels great.

    1. Kris Hudson - After a tough night at Mid-Ohio, where an ill-handling car took him off track and eventually to a 6th place finish, Kris has seen his points lead over Peter close a little, and his season average finish fall to 3.0

    2. Drew Lidkea - New to the Power Rankings this week, Drew took his first win of the season at Mid-Ohio and moved up in the points standings to 3rd, even after missing the season opening race at Daytona, and tough outings at Road America and Sebring. But with a win and two second place finishes this season, Drew has proven to be a front runner.

    3. Peter Hebron - After starting up front, Peter brought his ride home in second place for yet another podium this season. His average finish is now 4.6, but he has found consistency as of late and be out front at Watkins Glen. Peter brings experience each week, and with the chase for the Championship far from over I would expect to see him out front again.

    4. Dion Smith - Each week, Dion is always at the top of the speed chart, but hasn't had the luck that goes with racing at times. His third place finish at Mid-Ohio was his second podium of the season, and is one of six drivers to make all 7 races so far this season. Hopefully the bad luck is gone, which is bad news for the rest of the division.

    5. Joey Tungale - After back to back podiums in previous events, Joey finished inside the Top 10 at Mid-Ohio on a night that was tough for all. His recent consistency has kept him inside the Top 5 of the Power Rankings this week, and is yet another with the speed to finish on the podium each race.


    Usually I stop at the Top 5, but I want to note 6-10 this week for the AM class:

    6. Jay Freels - I would expect Jay to rebound at the familiar Watkins Glen circuit this week, and put this past week's race in the mirror.

    7. Larry Ford - With his Top 5 finish in class at Mid-Ohio, Larry has averaged a finishing position of 6.7 in six races this season.

    8. David Anderson - Another driver who has made all 7 races this season, his racecraft and patience moves him up through the field nearly every race!

    9. David Slee - Dave is one of out long time members that shows up ready to race every week, and has had an up and down season overall.

    10. Samuel Scott - With a win and a 3 podiums out of 5 races this season, Sam is another driver that has the speed to take another win.

    CMS-TXL Sports Car Series Power Rankings
    2019 S1 - 6 of 9 Races Completed


    For long time members of both CMS and TXL, many years ago when the majority of the racing was on ovals, somewhere along the way I came up with the idea to create Power Rankings each week to put the spotlight on those drivers who deserved the accolades of great results week after week. The main reason I wanted to do it was to kill the quiet in the forums in between races, and especially back then when we ran the entire Cup season over a year, interest would wain, drivers would fall out, and it was my way of saying "Check out the die-hards!".

    But it was met with some enthusiasm by many drivers, as it was a way to highlight those who were consistent on the track, not just in attendance...and I hope some of you find that it adds something to the wait between race nights.

    How are the Power Rankings devised? To sum it up, using an algorithm based on several factors including average finish over the season, number of drivers in each race, average number of drivers per race, finishing position weighted based on total drivers in the race, and finishing position in the last 5 races with the most recent events weighted higher. Provisionals are counted against drivers, but excluded from average finishing position calculations, and a few other factors at play too. It took me 2 years to come up with the current method, and I think it works great.

    The Power Rankings are per class, and only the Top 3 in Pro, and Top 5 in AM and Gents are listed, which is based on the number of results calculated. Si I now give you the first Power Rankings list in 14 years!


    GT3-Gents Class

    This class has been very competitive, with 4 different winners in 6 races. With an average of 9 drivers starting each race so far this season, a bad race can hurt your shot at the title.

    1. Paul Hamilton - This wily veteran is doing what it takes to win Championships. Not missing a race this season, Paul has 1 Win, two 2nds and two 3rd place finishes out of 6 races. His average finish of 2.7 is tremendous, and is clearly the reason why leads in the Championship points, and is at the top of our list.

    2. Anthony James - After starting this season with a 4th at Daytona and 5th at Road America, then missing Bathurst altogether, "AJ" has stormed back with three straight wins to put him in second place in the title hunt. With an average finish of 2.4 this season, he's making the most of his time on the track, and there's plenty of racing left.

    3. Mike Tyler - After a long hiatus from online racing, it's great to have Mike back on the track with us again. He claims to be rusty, but racecraft makes up for any lack of time and with an average finish of 5th after running all 6 races this season, we can bet that Mike will be in the hunt for the title as well!

    4. Randy Drumhiller - Another veteran racer that we're all happy to see once again, Randy has only missed racing at Bathurst this season, and with 2 podium finishes already to go with an average finishing position of 4.2, Randy has shown consistency each and every week, moving his way up the standings.

    5. Jay Dargert - Even though Jay has missed two races this season, he took the win at Bathurst and a second at Lime Rock to lay claim to a spot in the points chase. Even with two provisionals and an average finish of 5.8 due to a bad night at the season opener, don't dare count Jay out of contention for the Championship, especially with Watkins Glen ahead on the calendar.


    GTE-AM Class

    Just like the Gents class, this division has seen 4 different winners this season after 6 races, but with an average of 14.5 drivers starting this class each race this is the most active class in the series. Which means a bad night really hurts!

    1. Kris Hudson - Another long time member of CMS, Kris has always had a tendency to find the groove when it counts. With 3 wins and two 2nd place finishes, his average finish is 2.5 due to an early incident at Sebring where he drove back up to 8th place by the end of the race. With three races to go, Kris has control over the points chase, but he would be the first to tell you that it's not over till that last lap is done.

    2. Jay Freels - With a bad start to the season at Daytona and Road America, Jay has rebounded since then and posted an average finish of 5.5 the last four races. With experience and determination he has improved week after week, and with the size of the fields in GTE-AM it's a testament to Jay's racecraft!

    3. Peter Hebron - After starting the season with a 3rd at Daytona then winning in week 2, the weeks since have been unkind at times. Even with an 11th at Sebring due to the early carnage, Peter has an average finishing position of 5th after running all 6 races, and is second in the points with lots of racing left to go. With his speed, watch for Peter to put that car back in winner's circle again before the season's end.

    4. Samuel Scott - With a win at Sebring where he also finished 2nd overall, it's apparent that Samuel has the speed to contend for the win every week. But besides that win, Samuel also has two 3rd place finishes, and an average finish of 5.4 with one provisional. Another driver that has shown improvement each race to go with his incredible pace, another great addition to this series.

    5. Joey Tungale - Some drivers would have quit after the start Joey had to this season, but not this guy. He finished Bathhurst in 7th against a very tough field, and then after Germany he found the podium at both Sebring and Lime Rock. An average finish of 8.3 doesn't really tell the story here, and after personally chasing him at Sebring, I'm betting on more podiums the next three races.


    GTE-Pro Class

    This is a class that contains both long-time members and some newcomers, and some great racing within this division each week. This class has 4 different winners in 6 races this season, and attendance has been up and down but still averages out at 9 drivers per race.

    1. Leif Peterson - With two wins, a second and a third this season, Leif sits in first place in the GTE-Pro Championship points. His average finish of 2.8 is just remarkable considering the level of competition. The only blemish on his season so far is a 6th at the season opener at Daytona, there's no doubt that Leif will probably end the season with another win (or more)!

    2. Jason Lundy - While not the greatest season for one of the League Admins, his last three races have been on the upswing, with 3rd place in his last two outings. Overall he has an average of 6.2 for finishing position, but sometimes numbers don't tell the whole story....and persistence on overcoming those bad nights has kept Jason in contention for podiums these last few weeks. Something that isn't a surprise to most of us.

    3. Clark Archer - After taking the win at the season opener, Clark has maintained an average finish of 2.8, and after missing Sebring came back and won at Lime Rock the following week for his second time to victory lane. With his worst finish this season a 5th at Nurburgring, the last three races of this season will be quite the battle between the top dogs in this division.

    Please enjoy this 4 Races in Season to Date Recap from Tim Collier on our Wednesday Night iRacing GT Series!



    In this first full season of the CMS-TXL series, we have some great battles atop the standings in our three divisions as we head to race #5 at Sebring International this week!! Let's take a look at where we are...

    GTE Pro Class:

    After four races, there's a literal log-jam atop the standings here, with Clark Archer holding a one point lead over Leif Peterson and Paul Darling. This is a battle that, barring absentees, will go down to the wire. Just behind them in 4th, Chris Pence is waiting to pounce on any bad nights ahead, and don't overlook Victor Tanaka in 5th, who could make up that one missed race before all is said and done. All told, this division has had four different winners in the first four races, and bets are that the diversity in spreading the points around won't end anytime soon.

    GTE Am Class:

    This division has seen the highest turnout on average this season, which means off nights cost you more points, and therefore it will take clean races to put in a bid for the title. After a spectactular run at the Ring, Kris Hudson holds a 15 point lead over Peter Hebron, who has also had a great season so far. Behind them in third, Julie took the win at Daytona and has been in the mix keeping it close in the standings, and just behind her we have a group of drivers that have proven consistency is key. Jay Freels and David Anderson are currently tied for 4th, with JT Tami, Dion Smith and Russell Gordon all in the mix as well. With 5 races to go, there's a lot of points a stake, both to gain and lose, so expect a lot of movement in this list in the coming weeks!

    GT3 Gents Class:

    With less downforce than the GTE cars, as well as having to navigate traffic both ahead and behind makes this a very tough job for any driver. This class has had four different winners in the first four races, but Paul Hamilton's consistency has put him atop the standings for the moment, with a 20 point lead over returning veteran Mike Tyler, who gets faster week after week. Hamilton's experience will pay dividends, but keep an eye in the mirror as just behind Tyler are drivers with a one race deficit but still in the hunt, being led by Anthony James, a driver that's consistently listed at the top of the speed chart each week. But don't leave out John Addison, another sim-racing veteran, and Jay Dargert , yet another driver already with a win this season. My money is that this class will close up before it's all said and done.


    And remember that provisional points are earned after every two races attended....but more importantly, after Sebring it's Lime Rock, the North American bullring, where it will be a very busy night for everyone on the track!

    Good luck this week everyone, and enjoy the beautiful sunset in Florida!!
