Tuesday Nights - Legends Doubleheaders

On Tuesday nights for the mini-season, we'll switch over to the Legends cars to run doubleheaders each week. The first race of each doubleheader will be on road courses, with second half running on legends ovals. Since the road courses are first each week, we'll open up practice early at 9:15 PM Eastern to allow some extra practice time, and then qualifying will start at the normal 9:45 time slot. The second race will directly follow the first.

Thursday Nights - Super Late Model (Super Series)

And finally on Thursday nights, our Super Series will be featured...but with a twist. All invited drivers to the Super Series, plus a few drivers from the Contender Series that will try out, will show up each week without knowing the tracks or the format each week. The track on the schedule won't be announced until the session launches, and we'll switch up the format each round such as heat races, full field inverts, or who knows what else! Since the conditions will be unknown until drivers show up, we'll also open up practice for this series at 9:15 PM Eastern to allow some extra track time to work on setups.

Invite Only
Open setups
Sessions open at 9:15 PM Eastern, Qualifying at 9:45 PM Eastern

Special Halloween Super Late Model Event - October 31

Anytime we ask drivers what tracks they would like to see on our Super Late Model schedules, there are always a few that have suggested adding a road course into the mix. With Halloween coming up in just a few weeks, we thought it would be the perfect time to see who has what it takes to turn both left and right, or who will get scared off during the 60 Minutes of Horror at the ROVAL.

Fixed Setup (a custom fixed setup will be provided closer to the event)
Open to all drivers
