RoC Thursday Thunder Continues on Speed51

Last week, the Race of Champions Invitational Series made its “Thursday Night Thunder” debut on Speed51, with Ryan Doucette winning at the virtual Concord Speedway.

 

The sim racing series returns to Speed51 Thursday night, competing at Oxford Plains Speedway on the iRacing platform.

 

The series features many real-world competitors competing in sim racing while motorsports have been put on hold as part of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In particular, this series gives a chance of racers from all divisions of the Race of Champions banner to compete.  All races in the series will be streamed live on Speed51, including Thursday’s event at Oxford Plains.

 

Better known as the home of the Oxford 250 for Super Late Models, the event will provide a chance for the ground-pounding Modifieds to take on the 3/8-mile Maine bullring.

 

After the first event last week at Concord, some procedural changes have been madevfor the series, but there will still be plenty of on-track excitement. There will be 50 drivers locked into the 7:30pm portion of the event, with all Race of Champions Series drivers, regardless of series, with more than one “official” Race of Champions Series start, being locked into the 7:30pm portion of the event.

 

The balance of the 50 drivers locked into the 7:30pm portion of the event will be the drivers who qualified for the Concord Speedway feature and the remaining few positions will be filled out based on the “B-Main” finishes by invitation only.

 

Thursday’s broadcast will start at 7:30 p.m. in time for qualifying.  The feature race will be 150 laps around Oxford Plains Speedway for the second race of the RoC Invitational Series.

 

New drivers are eligible to enter future events by sending an e-mail to [email protected]. The entry deadline for will be Thursday, April 8 at 12:00pm (noon) for any new participants.
