The Upstate Racing League and Championship eSports Association are proud to announce a partnership for an upcoming event on the CARS eSport Tour schedule. URL and CEA have partnered to put the best from both leagues head-to-head in a 150 lap Late Model Stock feature in the first ever Border War 250 on July 12th, 2017. The event will feature 100 laps of action for the CARS eSport Super Late Models followed by the main event with 150 laps of Late Model Stock action. The Late Model Stock feature will have the same $75 purse as it’s had all season long and the winner will walk away with a guaranteed spot in the URL Late Model Nationals this coming September. Meanwhile, the current CARS Bounty on Vincere Racing and 6th man Inc, however, will not be up for grabs.
The URL/CEA Border War 250 is sure to feature some of the best Late Model drivers on the sim today and will be fully broadcast on LSRTV and iRacing LIVE. Both Upstate Racing and Championship eSports house a multitude of talented drivers in their stables that will be hungry to get the checkered flag for their respective league. The 150 lap Late Model Stock feature will take place on the regularly scheduled Round #7 of the CARS eSport Tour, a tour that’s officially sanctioned by the real life CARS Tour.
This Late Model Stock race in particular, however, will be a non-points event for series regulars as both URL and CEA Admins have sat down over the past two weeks to discuss a rules package for this single event. Taking both rules packages from URL and CEA, Admins have came to a decision on what rules from each series to implement.
From the Upstate Racing League comes the rule with fixed setups, not allowing drivers to adjust the car to their liking such as the former IROC days putting the finishing position solely in the drivers hands and not based on a sound setup. However, Championship eSports Association will level the playing field by not allowing any tires for this race, something CEA drivers have been accustomed to for numerous seasons.
Entry into the event is simple, as the only requirement is that a driver must have competed with either league in the past or present. The Entry Fee will also only be $2 for this race and will be paid to CEA whom will be taking care of payouts and broadcasting fees for this event. The Entry Fee is non-refundable and drivers must qualify their way into the feature as only the Top 30 drivers in single car qualifying will make it in.
