Our last ideas were NCATS and the north/south series (which I guess eventually turned into the current modified series)

We've practically done everything, it's tough to do something now that we already haven't done ya know?

On that note, I don't have anything I can think of right now, part of that is because it's 2:30 in the morning... I'll post later on with something if I think of anything lol

Honestly, I would love a return to the 358's on dirt tracks. Maybe try out a shorter, 12 race season.

I was even wondering if we should have a third series. Nobody ever seems to take interest. It always starts out fine and declines steadily. I'd be cool with an all dirt series to run separate from our asphalt series'

We've always talked about doing a saturday night short track type series, so we go to the same track and have like mini championships. Hear me out

EXAMPLE

We do a local short track, say Bowman Grey for example. We would have a prac session like normal, and qualify, and then three SEPERATE 30 lap (or whatever) races. Similar to the modified series format in the sense that it's seperate races, but I think it would be interesting to run shorter races, but more in a day.

Qualifying could set up the lineup for race 1, invert for race 2, and then average finishing position would determin where you lineup for race 3. If that's too complicated, lotto start each time. Obviously tweak everything, but this way it's something original that we sort of haven't done. It would be a true "local" short track type thing. Hobby stock at dirt tracks? sounds fun, I love orange county

Or like Sherm said, nothing at all.

I personally would like to do a short 1970s Trans-Am series based off of the 1970 season with the 70s mod. The schedule they ran that year which would be possible in NR03 would go like this:
Laguna Seca
Lime Rock
New Hampshire RC
Mid Ohio (Maybe)
Bridgehampton
Road America
Circuit Mont-Tremblant (needs to be made)
Watkins Glen
Riverside

The local dirt hobby stock thing sounds fun though. I know people were interested in that idea beforehand, just never really organized it.

I say we have a fulltime Thunderhill series with late models. Or Shawn's idea. I like the local hobby stocks.

In any case, I say we keep the schedules for the 3rd series shorter to try to keep up interest.

I want the 1980's series (or 1970's).

Or anything where qualifying starts not a minute before 8:00 PM !!!

Sit next to the fire and pass the blunt and talk about how we've all had good ideas that never worked out?

I like Shawn's idea. Hobby Stock at dirt tracks with double features (cone rule in this as well).

• Lotto Qualifying sets the order for heat races *IF THERE IS MORE 10 OR MORE RACING, IF LESS THAN 10 THEN ACTUAL QUALIFYING TAKES THE PLACE OF HEATS*
• Heat #1 - 8 laps
• Heat #2 - 8 laps
• Feature #1 - 30 to 40 lap feature
• Feature #2 (Starting line-up inverted based on results from Feature #1) - 30 to 40 lap feature

As far as points go and sandbagging goes, make it where you get points for how many cars you pass in the heats, and if this all sounds confusing for points, I can do them lol. I think this series would have to have an emphasis on short, shootout style races with guys going for broke, and with NR2003 dirt tracks, it wouldn't be a complete spinfest or any of that. And the schedule being pretty short, 7-10 races.

I wouldn't mind a road series like caleb posted, but it seems like after the 2nd race we only get 8 car fields with only 2-3 drivers racing for the lead in every road series we've done.

also, a goody's dash type series with the sportsman mod would be fun, big tracks and small short tracks

Superspeedway series? I know, REJECTED for some odd reason ( i still don't get why) maybe you guys should "edit" some tracks like say rockingham, add a few hills and BIG down hill slopes or something, idk, (I really would love to see an all superspeedway series personally) yes i know there overrated but there fun.

We did it for a few seasons back on the Sunset forum. The superspeedway series idea has kind of run it's course.

I'd like multiple sprint races. No pit stops or cautions. If you crash, no problem, just wait for the next race to begin. 2-3 races a night.

something like a Saturday night short track shootout would be cool at tracks like CNS, Oxford, Auburndale, ect.

a 20 lap Street stock feature
a 30 Lap Modified feature
and a 40 Lap Late model feature
