2017 NHRL Cup Series Starts March 24!
Wednesday, March 8, 2017
lepage71 - The NASCAR Heat Racing League has released the schedule for the 2017 NHRL Cup Series. Anticipation is sky high after the completion of our recent Truck Series, one which featured an abundance of storylines. A plethora of questions await Cup competitors. Will Speedyman11 continue his long ongoing victory tour? Will yet another first-time winner emerge after two straight series (Busch, Truck) of new drivers visiting victory lane (BlackKnight, ltfireman)? Will recent changes to the rules affect race strategies and outcomes? The Cup Series schedule, as expected, features a strong variety of courses, ranging from super speedways to road courses, including the series' debut at Road America T. Notably, the league will host the Cup Series on Fridays at 8:15 PM ET, in tandem with another league, NHRMA, which will be at 9:45. Drivers who participate in both leagues should find some efficiencies in their schedule as a result. So what are you waiting for? Come to our forum and sign up today! Rated 5/5 (1 vote).

Speedyman11 Claims Truck Title Convincingly
Sunday, March 5, 2017
lepage71 - Speedyman11 captured the 2016-17 NHRL Truck Series title using a very effective formula. From beginning to end, he consistently qualified well, ran near the front, and minimized his mistakes, particularly on pit road. The results would speak for themselves, as Speedy delivered a record-challenging effort, accompanied by a sparkling set of statistics. In total, he won 8 races and poles, finished in the top-5 in every event, and led more laps (551) than anyone else...combined. Yet despite the lofty numbers, the final outcome in the standings was sneakily close. Runner-up lepage71 made two trips of his own to victory lane and also equaled Speedy's perfect slate of top-5 finishes. In third place, ltfireman earned his first top-3 finish in the standings, as well as his first win in the league, holding off a five-truck group in a thrilling series finale at Talladega. Breeze, meanwhile, won a pole for the third straight series and matched his best finish of fourth. And ever-steady BlackKnight prevailed over Rookiesrock for fifth by a mere 3 points, trailing just Speedy and lepage with 9 top-5 finishes. Rated 5/5 (1 vote).

Fourth Annual Holiday Derby Set @ TS_Superdome
Tuesday, December 13, 2016
lepage71 - Competition in the NASCAR Heat Racing League is usually defined by a common respect for the league rules and fellow competitors. Drivers in the NHRL demonstrate a wise balance that promotes fun and safe competition. But enough about such tedium. On Sunday, December 18 at 7:30 PM ET, the notion of fair play will be scrapped in its entirety, and replaced with what everyone REALLY wants to do this holiday season. That's right, it's everyone's favorite time of the year again. The league is shamelessly pleased to announce its fourth annual Holiday Derby...the one NHRL festivity where the term "bash" applies literally! On the 18th, a gang of unholy, grinch-like manchildren will take up arms up in the NHRL Truck Series Mod at the new Taylor Swift Superdome in a coal-chucking smear-fest of greed, survival, and one-upsmanship. In the holiday spirit, the event is open to all, even if you can't drive, and as long as you bring a poor attitude. As expected, those who simply can't hack it will slink into their holes and quiver in their newly-stained underpants. Skip this year's event, and you'll be missing an opportunity to make NASCAR Heat history. Rated 5/5 (1 vote).

League Announces 2017 Truck Series
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
lepage71 - The trucks are back, and they're moving to Sundays! The NASCAR Heat Racing League is getting a jump start on the 2017 season after an exceptional 2016 campaign in all three major series. Significant changes are in the mix. This year, the NHRL Truck Series will start at a much earlier date (November 27), just a few weeks after the conclusion of the NHRL Busch Series, and take place on a new night and time (Sundays at 8:30 ET). A unique November to February window on Sunday evening should allow many competitors to participate. In fact, the Trucks actually begin on the final day of the 2016 Sprint Cup Series (Miami) and end on the first day of the 2017 campaign (Daytona). All of the usual NHRL heavy hitters will be there, including Speedyman11, who will be looking to defend his 2016 Truck Series championship. The schedule will likely be another feature of the series, where the trucks make their league debut at both Miami_H and Brickyard. So sign up and don't miss the fun! We look forward to seeing your and everyone else out on the track. Rated 5/5 (1 vote).

Speedyman11 Drives to Second Busch Series Victory
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
lepage71 - Speedyman11 has claimed victory once again! From start to end, he put the 2015-16 NHRL Busch Series championship in little doubt, given his virtuoso performance. Speedy won the opening five races, edged lepage71 and Rookiesrock in the final standings by 60 points, and topped the charts with 7 wins, 11 top-5s, 7 poles, and 431 laps led. Yet despite the numbers, most of his success came in moderate increments, perhaps making them even more impressive. In the races themselves, two-thirds of the margins of victories fell within 5 seconds, with several outcomes decided in the latter laps or with late fuel and tire strategies. Numerous drivers contributed to the drama. In second and third, lepage71 (1) and Rookiesrock (3) drove to several victories of their own. Breeze, meanwhile, won a pole for the second straight season and matched his best finish in the standings in fourth. The biggest story of the season might have been BlackKnight's long-awaited first league victory at Talladega. He executed a courageous late-race pass and held off puttzracer and lepage71 at the line. Rated 5/5 (1 vote).
