1. Race Requirements
  2. Up to date uploading/downloading of all necessary car/truck files from our car file manager (CFM). No person is allowed more than three (3) car files per series.
  3. Spotters may not always provide completely accurate information. Drivers are strongly encouraged to fully utilize the F2 window and their mirrors to maintain complete awareness of the drivers around them.
  4. Use Autochat messages to notify fellow drivers of your on-track activities.
  5. Teamspeak 3 Chat
  6. Caution Is Displayed
  7. When a caution flag is displayed, drivers MUST HOLD THEIR POSITIONS ON THE TRACK (assuming the race-back-window is not open). Pay attention to your F2 window to observe where you were at the moment the caution lights came on. Arguing over a position as to who was ahead when the caution lights came on can usually be settled by a “Gentleman’s Agreement”. DO NOT expect series administrators to do the impossible when determining who had which position.
  8. ANY DRIVER who inflicts damage on another driver’s vehicle during a pace lap or under caution will be subject to a pass-though penalty the next time by. Staggering your formation against the driver in front of you while under caution will prevent incidental accidents from happening.
  9. Lucky Dogs will be awarded at all points of a race, as long as a race sees a green flag restart. If a race ends under yellow, no lucky dog will be awarded for that yellow.
  10. Wave Arounds
  11. A "Wave Around" is an alternate way for a driver to get one lap back in a race. If there are any drivers that are directly behind the pace car but in front of the leader when the lights go out to indicate that the "One to go" has been given, those drivers will be allowed to take a "Wave Around" and pass the pace car, then catch up and line up at the tail end of the field. Once a driver takes a "Wave Around", that driver cannot come down pit road for service. When the green flag comes out, any driver who takes the "Wave Around" will have his sim-issued black flag cleared.
  12. Pitting
  13. Use access roads for entering and leaving the pits whenever the sim enforces them. However, administration reserves the right to change the location as to where drivers must go to enter the pits and where drivers will be allowed to merge in order to ensure a safe and competitive atmosphere.
  14. Connection Issues
  15. If a driver experiences connection issues that results in him losing a lap as he "blinks" across the start/finish line, administration will give that driver a lap back as a way to correct the scoring. However, any laps that a driver loses as a result of being out of the server while he tries to reconnect will not be given back when the driver returns to the race.
  16. A driver involved with any incident where they feel circumstances are questionable, whether it be with another driver or with sim scoring, may file a protest with administration. That protest must be filed with the Series Head Administrator by within 24 hours of the conclusion of the event. All protests must include the following:
  17. The driver’s name and car/truck number whom the protest or grievance is being filed against, if the incident involved another driver
  18. Once a protest or grievance is filed, if another driver is involved, the defendant will be notified via email and given two (2) days to respond and submit a replay in his defense, along with a testimony of the event from their perspective. If the defendant cannot produce a replay, his reference replay will be, by default, the replay saved by the head administrator.
  19. As of 2010, blazinpedals.com is a driver owned online racing league. The league will be governed by the Racing Administrators and League President. There are guidelines as to how decisions shall be made in the league as far as leadership, rule changes, mod and night changes, etc. This is defined here and may not be changed without going through the League Board.
  20. Administrators are encouraged to run their race nights as they would like with the exception of any rule changes, mod changes, or night changes without the approval of the League President and Board.
  21. Replays
  22. Any driver who fails to upload requested replays on three separate occasions will be further penalized by the league, including but not limited to indefinite suspension from all league sanctioned events to expulsion from the league.
  23. Winston Cup Series
  24. Caution on First Lap of Restart
    If a driver causes a caution before the leader has completed the first lap of a restart, the driver who caused the caution will be required to drive though pit road on the ensuing restart while the rest of the field takes the green flag.
  25. League Overview
  26. In-Game Chat Systems
  27. Prerace Procedures
  28. When the qualifying session begins, all drivers are expected to proceed as soon as possible and complete their qualifying lap(s). Any driver who does not complete qualifying will be positioned wherever scored by the simulation software. If you choose not to qualify, enter the qualifying stage and click “Abort Qualifying Run”.
  29. For all series here at BP, lowlining at superspeedway tracks is allowed at all points of the race. The low line at superspeedway restrictor plate-style tracks is defined as the line that separates the normal racing groove from the apron of the race track, usually yellow or white in color.
  30. Open discussions regarding who caused a caution will not be tolerated and will be looked at in the replay by administration after the race has concluded.
  31. A driver who spontaneously disconnects from the race server may reconnect to resume racing. Repeated disconnects and reconnects may result in an administrator using discretion in refusing further reconnections from that driver.
  32. The driver’s name and car/truck number filing the protest or grievance
  33. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A REPLAY TO SUPPORT YOUR ARGUMENT, your protest or grievance is instantaneously null and void. No exceptions, no questions asked.
  34. Extra time for league development is defined as assistance with special league events, updating the website, or any other duties that would not be considered "regular administrator duties".
  35. Any driver failing to upload a replay upon an administrator's request after the race may be subject to penalties in the form of the loss of championship points or finishing position of the replay-requested race.
  36. Series Specific Rules
    All series specific rules overrule any league wide rules if specified.
  37. Superspeedway Series
  38. Track Specific Regulations
  39. Caution on First Lap of the Race
    If a caution occurs on the first lap of the race, we will do ONE restart. This will not count towards a driver's "Two and Park" caution rule, but any driver on "One and Done" status will be asked to park. Once the race has been restarted, the driver who caused the caution will then be required to drive down pit road while the rest of the field takes the green flag to begin Lap 1.
  40. The Blazin' Pedals Online Racing League is a sanctioning body for simulated auto racing using the NASCAR® Racing 2003 Season software by Papyrus Design Group.
  41. Broadband high speed internet connection.
  42. All drivers will be expected to maintain control of their race vehicle under all conditions and at all times, including caution periods. Drivers who drive erratically or are unable to hold a suitable line may be asked to leave the event and may be subject to disciplinary action by administration.
  43. At the conclusion of the practice session, the race server may be reset to allow drivers to get their proper car/truck number and for last second calibrating.
  44. Happy Hour Warmup Session will not be utilized by any racing series.
  45. Under pace laps and caution laps, drivers should maintain an interval of 0.2 to 0.4 second between one another to prevent incidental contact.
  46. For the SuperSpeedway Series, Camping World Truck Series and the Sprint Cup Series, any driver who causes a yellow on the first lap of any start or restart will be required to drive through pit lane on the following restart as the field is taking the green.
  47. If a driver made an illegal pass on a restart (i.e. double file restarts), passed on the inside in order to avoid a wreck ahead, or passed a driver that was coming to pit road to serve a drive-through penalty and received a sim-issued black flag as a result, it will be up to administration to determine whether it will be cleared. Administration reserves the right to hand out post race penalties to any driver who asked to have a black flag cleared when it should have been served.
  48. Administration reserves the right to change the number of provisional points that a driver would receive for any series at any time.
  49. Cheating
  50. A replay of the incident that includes a few seconds before and a few seconds after the incident. Drivers must zip up their replay clips of the incident before uploading them to the website under the "Members" section of the front page.
  51. Visit the forums for series specific protocols and points structures, as well as any other rules that certain series have in place for that night of racing.
  52. The League shall be governed by a League President. The President shall be chosen by vote by the league's Administration and Board.

  54. Cautions
    Any driver who causes 2 cautions in a race is required to "park it"
  55. Driver Registration through our website by clicking "Register" at the top of the home page.
  56. DO NOT use in-game chat for carrying on non-race related conversation, not even during caution periods.
  57. Use TeamSpeak to work out race related situations such as where you're supposed to line up for a restart, whether you are EOLL, etc.
  58. DO NOT use TeamSpeak open channels for carrying on excessive non-race related conversations, especially during caution periods. Drivers need to be able to hear their spotters.
  59. Drivers being lapped have the right to race to stay on the lead lap. THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE a driver taking aggressive action to wreck the leader if the leader is passing that person to place him/her a lap down. Once a driver is one or more laps down, that driver is expected to give way for other drivers still on the lead lap to pass. If a lapped driver is racing another lapped driver for position, he/she should still be mindful of the leader’s position relative to his/her own, but it becomes more the leader’s responsibility to navigate a safe path around the lapped vehicles.
  60. If none of the involved parties will claim a caution, then it is strongly suggested that both drivers line up EOLL (end of the longest line) for the next restart. When the incident is reviewed after the race, and it is noted that the driver determined to be at fault for the caution did not line up EOLL for that restart, that driver will be penalized accordingly. This includes penalties for drivers who cause cautions that result in the race ending under yellow who do not go EOLL.
  61. The procedure that the Lucky Dog driver must perform to be awarded a lap is dependent on the series. For some series here at BP, the Lucky Dog driver must get a speeding penalty down pit road the second time by and restart at EOLL to have administration award a lap back on the green flag restart. Other series may have the Lucky Dog driver pit second time by without getting a speeding penalty, line up next to the pace car (while ignoring what the spotter is saying), then take off around the track and rejoin at the tail end of the field. An administrator will then clear the game-issued black flag on the green flag restart.
  62. Restarts
  63. All drivers are required to maintain a speed close to the pace car's speed under caution up to the drop of the green flag. There is no need for the driver in charge of leading the field to “catch up” to the pace car as it peels off the track and speeds ahead of the field on pit lane.
  64. If administration feels a driver is acting in an unsportsmanlike manner for any reason, that driver may be ejected at administrations' discretion.
  65. Any driver who races under a name who is not his own is considered to be cheating and will not be tolerated. No fake names or substitute drivers are allowed.
  66. The use of game glitches will not be allowed outside of "hot pittng". Game glitches are considered misuse of known or unknown game issues to gain an advantage.
  67. The League Board shall be chosen by the League President, provided they fit the guidelines for being a Board member.

  69. Caution on First Lap of the Race
    If a caution occurs on the first lap of the race, we will do ONE restart. This will not count towards a driver's "Two and Park" caution rule, but any driver on "One and Done" status will be asked to park. Once the race has been restarted, the driver who caused the caution will then be required to drive down pit road while the rest of the field takes the green flag to begin Lap 1.
  70. Low Lining
    "Low lining" is allowed at all points of the race.
  71. Short Tracks
  72. Camping World Truck Series
  73. Self Spins
    If you self spin or go off track and do not collect any other drivers, there are no penalties that need to be served. Communicate to other drivers that you spun out and be very careful getting back on the track or turning around. If after spinning or going off track, you make contact with another driver, it will be considered an incident.
  74. Cautions
  75. The purpose of Blazin' Pedals Online Racing League is to create and promote a clean, friendly and competitive environment for simulated auto racing. We encourage all competitors in Blazin' Pedals to keep FUN the number one objective. If you lose sight of this goal, it is highly suggested that you locate a new hobby.
  76. A copy of the NASCAR Racing 2003 Season simulation and the official 1.2.0.1 patch as provided on our downloads page.
  77. Pre-qualifying practice is a time for practice, not goofing off or horseplay. The Drivers' Meeting on TeamSpeak will begin roughly 5-10 minutes before this practice session is complete.
  78. In some instances and series, qualifying will not be included in the event or guidelines will be issued that will spell out what part of the track is deemed acceptable as a racing surface. The rules for qualifying will be determined prior to an event or right before qualifying in TeamSpeak. Administrators reserve the right to ask drivers to save their replays to confirm that they were within qualifying guidelines.
  79. With the low line at superspeedway restrictor plate-style tracks defined as the line that separates the normal racing groove from the apron of the racing surface, going below that low line at superspeedways to gain inside position on another driver is not allowed at any point in the race. Any driver that goes below this line to gain inside position on the driver in front must lift and allow the driver being passed the opportunity to get back in line. If the passing driver doesn't allow that driver back in line or lift at some point later in the lap to give that spot back, then that driver will be issued a drive through penalty under green or an EOLL penalty if the race is under caution. That driver may serve that penalty during the race if he knows or is made aware that a passing-below-the-line violation was committed, but the EOLL penalty can also be enforced after the race is complete if the administrator deems it necessary.
  80. Any driver who does not admit involvement in a caution who was found to have caused it may be asked to serve a drive-through penalty at the start of that series' next race. This is up to the series administrator's discretion.
  81. Lucky Dog
  82. For the Camping World Truck Series, each driver must stay behind the driver in front of him until he crosses the start/finish line unless a driver purposely pulls down to the inside and gives permission to the drivers behind him to pass on his outside. Furthermore, all passing must be done on a driver's outside until the backstretch, which is the zone where getting inside position on a driver on the first lap of a restart begins. This rule no longer applies once the leader has taken 10 to go.
  83. Sportsmanship
  84. Protest & Grievance Policy
  85. A Board Member is a voting member of the Blazin' Pedals administration. To be considered for a spot on the League Board, you must race full time at Blazin' Pedals and be willing to put forth extra time into the league development if asked to do so.
  86. Short Tracks
    The sim will govern all restarts. Gaining inside position on a driver before the start/finish line on restarts is allowed at all points of the race.
  87. Incidents
    An incident is defined as any action that causes another car to spin or go off track.
  88. All drivers in TeamSpeak are required to be in the same channel as everyone else. It is your responsibility to setup whisper keys, mute other drivers you want, etc.
  89. If a restart will occur with 10 or less laps remaining, ALL LAPPED DRIVERS are required to drive through pit road on the second lap of caution, but stopping in the pit stalls for service is not required. Lapped drivers must still obey all in-game rules regarding the pit road speed limit, heeding to the stop-sign official at the end of pit road, and merging legally onto the racing surface.
  90. If you cause a caution or are found to be the cause of a caution, you must be EOLL for the next restart. Failure to do so will result in penalties after the race. If you cause a caution that ends the race under yellow, you must get EOLL penalty under that yellow or you will be scored at the end of your last completed lap once it has been reviewed after the race.
  91. The sim will restart the race, not the leader. The leader does NOT have the choice of accelerating when he wants. All current BP series follow this rule.
  92. Being more than one car/truck length behind the driver in front of you is considered lagging back to make a run on the field for a start/restart. All drivers must begin closing the gap between himself and the driver in front before they enter the last turn or set of turns. Jumping the restart will NOT be tolerated.
  93. Provisional Points
  94. Enter the pit and exiting from the event. Any driver who does not conform will be ejected from the server and be charged with any cautions as a result of accidents that happened from the warp.
  95. A brief synopsis of the incident from the plaintiff’s perspective
  96. ALL RULINGS BY ADMINISTRATION WILL BE BINDING AND FINAL. There is no appeals process, and no debates or arguments will be entertained after the final ruling for a protest.
  97. Administration reserves the right to amend and/or edit the official rulebook as the need arises with the goal of continuing to provide and promote the best online racing environment possible and will notify all drivers of any amendments or additions to the official rulebook as they are made.
  98. All Tracks
  99. Pitting Under Caution
    Pit road is closed the during the first lap after the field has taken the yellow flag. Any driver who chooses to pit during this lap must be lined up EOLL while taking the green flag.
  100. Racing Through Wrecks
    Racing through wrecks is not allowed, regardless if the race back window is open. A driver must protest this to a series admin. Once the protest is received the admin will review it and if it is found that a driver could have slowed down to avoid further damaging cars involved, a 2 lap penalty and EOLL penalty will be issued to that driver on the final export.
  101. Any driver who is forced to use a joystick may request admin approval to do so. Request may be approved based off circumstances but are very rare.
  102. Communications
  103. All drivers MUST be present for the Drivers' Meeting in TeamSpeak to go over any important information. Any driver that misses the meeting may be asked by that series' head administrator to forgo qualifying and start the race in the back. The decision to require a driver to start a race in the back for missing the drivers' meeting is at the discretion of the head administrator for each series.
  104. Any amendments to the Two-Caution Rule is up to each head administrator for a series. Refer to the forums for any series specific modifications to this rule.
  105. A set number of provisional points will be awarded to anyone who misses an event, regardless of the number of drivers who participated in the missed race. The number of provisional points awarded to a driver for missing a race is different based on the series.
  106. If you have been notified by multiple drivers that you are severely warping, you must do one of the following:
  107. Any use whatsoever of performance enhancing aids outside those available in the sim is considered intentional cheating. This will not be tolerated, period. If it is determined that a driver is found guilty of this, a discussion among administration will be held and that driver will be indefinitely suspended from the league. If expulsion from the league is deemed necessary, that action will be taken for that driver.
  108. If there are any changes the League President wants to see happen, the President must take his proposed changed to the Board for vote. If the board votes yes, the change can be put into place. No changes may be made without going before the Board. Changes must be approved by a majority vote.

  110. Cautions
    Any driver who causes 2 cautions in a race is required to retire from the race. If a driver is required to retire in two consecutive events they must do a drive through during the start of the next race they participate
  111. Caution on First Lap of Restart
    If a driver causes a caution before the leader has completed the first lap of a restart, the driver who caused the caution will be required to drive though pit road on the ensuing restart while the rest of the field takes the green flag.
  112. Penalties
    If you cause an incident you will perform a drive through penalty down pit road. If you stop in your pit spot it will not be considered serving a penalty. If you fail to serve a penalty for an incident, your scoring will be stopped at the time you caused the incident.
  113. Caution on First Lap of Restart
    If a driver causes a caution before the leader has completed the first lap of a restart, the driver who caused the caution will be required to drive though pit road on the ensuing restart while the rest of the field takes the green flag.
  114. Registration with the forum boards.
  115. No chatter (TeamSpeak or in-game chat) whatsoever shall occur during the qualifying session.
  116. Race Procedures
  117. Blocking is not allowed until the leader takes 10 to go. Blocking is defined as a driver altering or changing his/her racing line to inhibit or prevent passing, particularly in response to a move made by a driver in behind. A driver who is found guilty of excessive blocking may be forced to serve a "drive through" penalty, issued at the administrators discretion.
  118. Causing Cautions
  119. A driver who causes a caution will not be credited with leading any laps under that caution should he stay out on the track when everyone else in front of him pits. If a driver does lead a lap under a caution that he caused, any laps that driver led will be credited to the next eligible driver (usually 2nd place) in the running order on a lap by lap basis.
  120. Two-Caution Rule – If you cause or are found to be the cause of two cautions, you must park your vehicle and retire from the event. Any driver who refuses to park his vehicle will be subject to ejection from the race server and further disciplinary action. Any driver who is found to have caused two cautions through post-race replay reviewing but did not park their car after causing the second caution will have his/her lap scoring stopped immediately after the second incident was caused.
  121. For most series here at BP, pulling alongside on someone's inside before the start/finish line is allowed, but the sim will determine whether the move was legal or not if a pass was made. Expect to serve any black flags issued by the sim for illegally passing before the line. There are specific series exceptions to this rule below.
  122. Pull into the pit to wait and see if your connection quality improves.
  123. If a race is being broadcasted, administration reserves the right to not allow any reconnects if a driver falls out of the race server for any reason, inadvertent or intentional. That driver may be subject to ejection from the race server if he attempts to reconnect.
  124. The date and/or event name in which the incident occurred
  125. Keep in mind, while reviewing the race footage, if the driver filing the protest or grievance is observed to be in violation of league rules, that driver may be levied penalties outside of the final ruling from the original protest. The moral of this story is to choose your battles carefully. Objectivity and fairness will rule supreme.
  126. League Administration
  127. Voting on League President may happen at the end of the season annually. On November 1st, the current League President will put a poll up for the admins to vote on as to whether they would like a Presidential vote for the next year. If all of the admins feel that the current President is doing everything to satisfaction, they may choose to not hold a vote, allowing the current League President to automatically serve another term. If one administrator votes "yes" to have a Presidential vote, then nominations will be accepted for voting. The vote shall be finalized for the following years leadership no later than November 30th. All administrators are required to cast a vote. It is their obligation as an administrator at Blazin' Pedals. The new League President will Take over January 1st.
  128. Drivers must zip up their replays before uploading them to the website under the "Members" section of the front page.
  129. Cautions
    Incidents will not bring out the yellow. A yellow flag will only be displayed at the halfway point of a race.
  130. Request an available number from the “Available Numbers List” thread under the "General Board" section of the forums. Triple digit numbers of any kind will not be allowed. Provided that your number request is approved, this number must be used across all participating series. See forums for detailed rules regarding keeping numbers.
  131. Race Etiquette
  132. Handle all problems and disagreements between your fellow competitiors outside of the racing environment through private chat or email. Drivers who choose to debate guilt or fault through in-game chat or TeamSpeak DURING AN EVENT may be subject to suspension regardless of where fault is found to lie in the racing incident in question.
  133. Use chat system to notify administration that you are claiming a caution you caused or were involved in one.
  134. Happy Hour Procedures
  135. The SuperSpeedway Series the Camping World Truck Series and the Cup Series allow a race to be restarted only if the leader has not completed the first lap before a yellow waves.
  136. There are cases where accidents happen on the track, but the sim does not throw the caution. In any case, administration will never throw a caution to make up for the sim not throwing one.
  137. If you cause a caution, claim it over TeamSpeak and/or by typing in “mine”. If you're not sure if you were the cause of a caution, notify us that you were involved and/or type in “inv”.
  138. Conduct Under Caution
  139. If the driver that would be the Lucky Dog was directly involved in the incident that caused the caution, i.e. the driver who was the first one to get spun or the driver who spun another driver, there is no Lucky Dog and it does not pass on to the next eligible driver. Any driver that was not directly involved in the incident that caused the caution but was simply caught up as an inncoent bystander, i.e. tried to check up for a wreck and bumped someone or got bumped from behind, will still be eligible to be the Lucky Dog. When there are 10 or less laps to go, which is the "race-back-to-the-caution" period, If the driver that would be the Lucky Dog was directly involved in an incident racing back to the line to take that caution (not necessarily the incident that initally brought out the caution), there is no Lucky Dog and it does not pass on to the next eligible driver.
  140. A driver is not allowed to speed down pit road in an attempt to lead a lap while in the process of breaking the pit road speed limit. Credit for any lap led this way will instead go to the driver who would have led the lap under legal circumstances, and any driver caught doing this will be issued a warning after the race. If it occurs a second time after the driver has been warned, the penalty escalates to a black flag that will be served.
  141. If you are being disruptive on TeamSpeak, you may be ejected from TeamSpeak. This includes excessive discussions regarging claiming cautions and non-race related chat.
  142. To be an administrator at Blazin' Pedals, you must race at BP full time. While being a Blazin' Pedals admin, you may not run in other leagues without the expressed permission of the League President.
  143. Racing Through Wrecks
    Racing through wrecks is not allowed, regardless if the race back window is open. A driver must protest this to a series admin. Once the protest is received the admin will review it and if it is found that a driver could have slowed down to avoid further damaging cars involved, a 2 lap penalty and EOLL penalty will be issued to that driver on the final export.
  144. Road Courses

  151. Use chat system to warn drivers that you are missing gears for a restart, are damaged, or to pass low or high.
  152. After the yellow flag has been displayed, all drivers should begin slowing gradually until reaching pace speed. There shall be no contact between vehicles on the track during a caution or coming to take the caution. This may be construed as a retaliatory act and the offending driver can be penalized accordingly.
  153. Any driver who causes a wreck after the caution is displayed must be EOLL for the ensuing restart. If a driver causes a wreck under a caution that will end the race, even if the race back window is open, that driver may be placed at EOLL in the final results.
  154. The Lucky Dog will only be awarded to the first driver not on the lead lap at the moment the caution is displayed. However, if the caution is displayed when there are 10 or less laps to go, which is the "race-back-to-the-caution" period, the Lucky Dog will be awarded to the highest scored driver not on the lead lap that takes the caution.
  155. It is legal to pass on pit road on either side after crossing the pit road entry line. It is up to you to travel at the pit road speed limit. If you are going slower than the speed limit, expect to be passed. If someone gets to your inside, you may have to lift to let him by if he has a pit stall further down pit road than yours.
  156. Any driver who flames another, through in game chat or TeamSpeak will be ejected from the race server and TeamSpeak.
