    Hello. Remember me? I was the guy with the totally-insane 1988 Winston Cup offline league back in 2013.

    Since the closure of the original Offline Leagues section, I moved to labonteboy's NR2003 Mock Seasons forum (after a failed attempt to start my own forum, NR2003 Offline Leagues). Things got...interesting. Running that league off-and-on since 2016 produced such craziness as Bob Schacht winning the 1992 Daytona 500, AJ Foyt winning two races in a row that same year at Talladega and Progressive, both races at Darlington being sabotaged by the owners of a nearby track (this was my explanation for the bad track.ini included with Darlington 98), and more driver deaths (in 1988 alone, if you recall, four drivers were killed, including Ernie Irvan, Buddy Arrington, Rodney Combs, and Derrike Cope). More deaths followed:

    * Jim Sauter died at the 1989 First Union 400 after slamming into the edge of the wall at the entrance to pit road, then being hit again by Sterling Marlin; he was replaced by Bo Abraham, and the #90 car eventually went to Ken Schrader when it turned out Tim Richmond DIDN'T have AIDS, it was a bad test result read by a nursing student
    * Grant Adcox still died in the 1989 Atlanta Journal 500 as in real-life
    * Rob Moroso died of massive head trauma at the 1990 First Union 400 after his car was sent on its roof, and the window net was sheared away, thus allowing his head to hit the wall; he was replaced in the #20 car by Jeff Burton
    * Tire changer Mike Rich died at the 1990 Atlanta Journal 500, again as in real-life
    * Rick Mast was killed at the 1991 Daytona 500 when his car was slammed at high speeds by Dale Earnhardt (who was uninjured but shaken); his #1 ride went to Kelly Walker, who ran the car for two seasons (and managed to get a win at Dover later that season) before moving to a fourth car, the #39 Gulf Oil Lumina, at Pacific Coast Racing in 1993 (the third car was Andy's wife, Belle Johnson, who drove the #85 SpeeDee's Lumina)
    * JD McDuffie still dies at Watkins Glen in 1991
    * Phil Barkdoll had a particularly gruesome death at Riverside in 1992 (Riverside was never shut down for housing, and managed to regain a second date in 1992), when he went on his roof, and his car hit head-on while upside-down at high speed by Davey Allison, while Allison was hit in the driver's side door by Jimmy Hensley; Allison was uninjured since Hensley had managed to slow down in time, but Barkdoll...well, sheets were brought out immediately and a very long red flag shown, and ESPN got tons of angry phone calls for accidentily showing the aftermath

    And now, for the champions since 1988 (if you remember, Andy Sammonds became the first rookie to win the Winston Cup):

    * 1989: Katie Sammonds (who also won three races that year plus The Winston, becoming the first woman to win at the Winston Cup level)
    * 1990: Mark Martin
    * 1991: Andy Sammonds
    * 1992: Bill Elliott

    And the Daytona 500 winners:

    * 1989: Andy Sammonds
    * 1990: Sterling Marlin
    * 1991: Lennie Haddenberger
    * 1992: Bob Schacht
    * 1993: Kelly Walker (first Daytona 500 win by a woman)

    But, in the past few weeks, I've become unsatisfied with the direction this league is going in. So, I've decided a reboot is in order. A lot will be different this time around. For one, several names are being changed:

    * Andy Sammonds -> Tim Johnson
    * Katie Sammonds -> Chloe Johnson
    * Belle Johnson -> Belle Armstrong
    * Kelly Walker -> Jenny Smith
    * Steve Sammonds -> Sheldon Johnson Jr.

    Pacific Coast Racing also has a new backstory: rather than running Chevrolets from 1969 to 1982 and then switching to Buick before switching back to Chevrolet in 1989, PCR first ran in NASCAR's inaugural season in 1949.

    They entered car #80, a 1947 Chrysler driven by Sheldon Johnson. In the following years, PCR was a staunch Chrysler loyalist, mainly because PCRs shops in San Jose, CA were right next to a Chrysler dealership. After fielding the same 1947 Chrysler in 1950 (as Johnson had somehow managed not to damage it, earning it the nickname "Bulletproof Bomber", starting a PCR tradition), the team switched to a Plymouth (the "Blue Bonnet" due to its all-blue color scheme that made it stand out on the track) in 1951, then to the Dodge Coronet (the "Maximum Lung Cancer" due to being plastered in tobacco sponsor decals) in 1953, sticking with that model until switching again in 1958, this time to the Plymouth Savoy (the "Bulletproof Bomber II" due to being as seemingly-indestructible as the Chrysler used in the first two seasons). Unsatisfactory results with the car led to PCR making yet another switch to the Plymouth Belvedere (the "Ford Buster" due to making Ford's dominance in that era one they really had to work for), which ushered in a renaissance for the organization. During this time, Sheldon Johnson retired after a bad crash at Atlanta International Speedway in 1964 and was replaced by his son, Sheldon Johnson Jr.

    In 1965, PCR returned to the Dodge Coronet (the "Rolling Liquor Store" due being plastered in hard liquor sponsor decals), then made the jump to the Dodge Charger Daytona (the "Flying Wedge" due to its shape) with the advent of the Aero Warriors. They stuck with the Dodge Charger (the 1971-75 car was the "Yellowjacket" due to its predominantly-yellow color scheme, and the 1976-77 car was the "Ronald McDonald" due to its yellow-and-red scheme) throughout the 1970s.

    When Dodge introduced the Magnum into NASCAR competition in 1978, PCR was leery of the new car, mainly due to its small-block Chrysler 360 V8 being seen by team owner Manny Brown as unsuitable for racing due to the lack of factory support, and to that end, gave it the nickname "Runt of the Litter". Their concerns were founded when Richard Petty and Neil Bonnett (the two top Mopar teams) defected to General Motors, leaving several independent drivers such as Buddy Arrington, Frank Warren, and country singer Marty Robbins (yes, he actually drove in NASCAR) running Dodges. PCR was the only major team still running them, if only because their proximity to a Chrysler dealership afforded them the opportunity to scrounge for parts, not to mention the fact PCR ran an official Mopar dealership, and were able to test their cars at nearby tracks such as Sears Point Raceway in Sonoma, Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton, and the newly-opened San Jose Motorplex in Gilroy. When it came to the boxy body of the Magnum, PCR tactfully exploited numerous loopholes in the NASCAR rulebook, and were able to produce some really competitive cars that made Petty turn his head; their main car during this period was named "Clifford the Big Red Car" due to the fact PCR had churned out viable Dodges, as well as the car being predominantly red.

    Sheldon Johnson Jr. retired after the 1980 season, and was replaced for 1981 by Dennis Malone, who had been driving PCRs Modified Division entry since 1978. 1981 also saw the Dodge Magnum replaced by the Dodge Mirada and Chrysler Imperial, with PCR opting to run the Mirada (the "Mean Green Machine" due to its predominently green paint scheme). Even though the body had a very high coefficient of drag that made it incapable of speeds over 185 mph, PCR again exploited loopholes in the NASCAR rulebook to make their Miradas competitive.

    After Chrysler gave up on re-establishing their presence in NASCAR, Miradas and Chrysler Imperials held on through 1985. After that, Chrysler all but disappeared from NASCAR.

    Except it didn't. Pacific Coast Racing absolutely REFUSED to give up on running viable Chrysler-engined cars, renaming their main car to the "Mean Green Dodge Machine" to reinforce that it was a Dodge. Throughout 1985, PCR continued scrounging together Chrysler engine parts, even cobbling together parts from Chevrolet, Pontiac, Ford, and Mercury engines around Dodge engine blocks and then adding Mopar parts. The sheetmetal, more often than not, was also cobbled together from other cars, usually wrecked cars that PCR bought on the cheap. They would strip these cars of usable sheetmetal, then shape them (or in some instances, according to some accounts, literally beaten with a hammer) to resemble a Dodge Mirada. This ingenuity quickly earned PCR the nickname "The Junkrats", and while many people laughed and/or ridiculed them, Dennis Malone quickly silenced them by winning the 1985 NASCAR Winston Cup championship over Darrell Waltrip. Nobody could fathom how a team with zero factory support that had been reduced to cobbling together Frankenstein's cars was able to slay General Motors and Ford, especially since the other Dodge and Chrysler cars were just field-fillers by this point.

    In 1986, PCR was the odd-team out, now being the only Chrysler team left. With the other remaining Chrysler teams having switched to GM or Ford cars, their cars were donated to PCR, who gladly used the sheetmetal to make actual Miradas instead of having to create Frankenstein's creations out of GM and Ford cars and then slap a Dodge logo on them. Chrysler didn't support them even after their legendary 1986 run, but Mopar dealerships all around the country were sending any parts they could spare to PCRs shops, which assisted greatly in another successful season for the Mean Green Dodge Machine where Malone finished third in standings behind Waltrip and season champion Dale Earnhardt. These parts also allowed PCR to clean house in the NASCAR Winston Modified Tour with Sheldon Jr.'s son, Tim.

    For 1987, PCR will continue using Dodge Miradas. Rumors from within Chrysler say that they want back into NASCAR, but don't know how they'll shake the loyal bases GM and Ford have built in recent years. Dennis Malone will drive the #02 Dodge Mirada (the fourth "Mean Green Dodge Machine") for one more year, before handing the car over to Tim Johnson in 1988.

    Other things to note:

    * There will be NO Car of Tomorrow. From 2008 to 2010, the Gen-4 car will stay, before a new bodystyle (NWS11) is introduced in 2011, then the Gen-6 body will follow in 2014 (it will still be the same chassis all the way through); these are the mods that will be used: Aero88 for 1987-88, Cup90 (Cup physics) for 1989-96, WC98 for 1997-1998 Cup2000 for 1999-2002, Default Cup for 2003-2010, NWS11 for 2011-13, BR Gen 6 for 2014, Gen 6 2015 for 2015-16, MENCS17 for 2017, MENCS18 for 2018, MENCS19 for 2019 and possibly 2020 if a Cup20 or whatever it would be called comes out, then whatever mods for the Next Gen car comes out for 2021-onward since this league will probably stretch into next year
    * Drivers who will live: Tim Richmond, Davey Allison, Alan Kulwicki, Clifford Allison, Casey Elliott, Neil Bonnett, Chris Trickle, Kenny Irwin Jr., Adam Petty, and of course, Dale Earnhardt
    * Tracks that will stay: Riverside, North Wilkesboro, Rockingham
    * Tracks that will be added for sure to the schedule in future seasons: Nazareth Speedway, Milwaukee Mile, San Jose Motorplex (Progressive Speedway), Coca-Cola Superspeedway, Pikes Peak International Speedway, Chicago Motor Speedway (will be run on odd-numbered years, with Chicagoland Speedway taking even-numbered years), Texas World Speedway (will be run even-numbered years, with Texas Motor Speedway taking odd-numbered years), New Hampshire International Speedway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Sears Point Raceway, California Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, Nashville Superspeedway
    * Tracks that will lose a date in future seasons: Michigan International Speedway, Pocono Raceway
    * Other changes: at some point, perhaps around 1991, NASCAR will reintroduce midweek races; these will be run on Wednesdays at smaller venues such as Five Flags, Langley, South Boston, Myrtle Beach, Motor Mile, Thompson, Nashville (Fairgrounds), South Boston, Greenville-Pickens, Heartland Park, Huntsville, Winchester, Caraway, IRP, and any other minor tracks that catch my fancy

    1987 will start Soon (TM), but that's a promise I'm gonna try my hardest to hold myself to.

    1987 Busch Clash
    It was the beginning of a brand-new season for NASCAR. After a two-month offseason following the season finale at Riverside, it was time to get back to racing.

    The week before the 29th Daytona 500 was the Busch Clash, an invitational, 20-lap shootout made up of pole winners from the previous season. The 1987 race featured eleven drivers:

    * #02 Dennis Malone
    * #3 Dale Earnhardt
    * #5 Geoff Bodine
    * #7 Alan Kulwicki (wild card)
    * #9 Bill Elliott
    * #11 Terry Labonte
    * #15 Ricky Rudd
    * #17 Darrell Waltrip
    * #29 Cale Yarborough
    * #33 Harry Gant
    * #35 Benny Parsons

    Darrell Waltrip drew the pole, and won the race after 20 caution-free laps.

    The Daytona 500 is next.

    1987 Daytona 500
    Dale Earnhardt started on the pole for the 29th running of the Great American Race. Early in the going, the lead switched hands numerous times between multiple drivers.
    [​IMG]
    Dennis Malone's "Mean Green Dodge Machine" leading on Lap 12

    The second half of the race will forever be remembered for the heartstopping battle between Malone, Buddy Baker, and Bobby Allison's son Davey. With eight to go, it looked like Allison was going to become the first rookie to win the Daytona 500, before the caution came out and set up a four-lap shootout to decide the Daytona 500. Baker took the lead with two laps to go with the aid of the lap car of Terry Labonte, and with Malone all over his rear bumper, Baker held him off to win the 29th Daytona 500. It was Baker's first win since the 1983 Firecracker 400. Malone finished second, Bill Elliott navigated his way out of lap traffic for third, Davey Allison finished fourth, Tim Richmond was fifth, Richard Petty came home sixth (his first top-ten finish in the Daytona 500 since he won the 1981 running), Phil Parsons seventh, Michael Waltrip finished eighth for his first career top ten, Geoff Bodine was ninth, and Greg Sacks rounded out the top ten.

    Baker, having won the race and led the most laps, is the current points leader, with Malone in second.

    Next stop: North Carolina.

    Terry Labonte started on the pole for the first intermediate of the season. In the early going, Labonte and Dennis Malone battled for the lead, using lap traffic to block each other. Eventually, though, both fell victim to incidents, with Labonte crashing out and the Mean Green Dodge Machine IV suffering a banged-up nose, but staying in the race and soldiering to a 23rd-place finish eight laps down.

    The race ended in a major upset, as Jim Sauter held off Bill Elliott for his first career NASCAR win.

    Following the race, Bill Elliott is the new points leader, while Dennis Malone has fallen to eighth.

    Next stop: Richmond.

    1987 Miller High Life 400
    Dennis Malone started on the pole for the first short track of the season. He once again led early in the going, before he was involved in a crash that involved several other drivers, this time ending his day.

    The first caution of the day was a severe one:
    [​IMG]
    Bobby Hillin Jr. was spun off the nose of Rusty Wallace coming out of turn 2, and was T-boned square in the driver's-side by Harry Gant, sending him on his roof. Fortunately, Gant was going slow enough that Hillin was uninjured.

    By the end of another chaotic day at Richmond, over half the field was out, and only two cars were on the lead lap: Bill Elliott, and race winner Dale Earnhardt.

    Elliott maintains his points lead, while Dennis Malone has slipped to tenth.

    Next stop: Atlanta.

    Oh, would you look at that, I held myself to this league. And I'm gonna have to learn how to paint to make some Dodge Avengers for Cup98. Anyway...
    1987 Motorcraft Quality Parts 500
    This was the first race I actually let run in real-time, as I usually just accelerate through most of it until a yellow flag happens and hope to see what caused it. As a result, I got some pretty good pictures and bore witness to some fantastic racing.

    Dennis Malone won his second consecutive pole, with Terry Labonte on the outside pole. The early stages were innocent enough, until the second caution of the day:
    [​IMG]
    Dave Marcis was hit broadside by rookie Dale Jarrett and sent on his roof. Fortunately, though, the hit occurred on the right side, and Marcis walked away uninjured, though it still brought out the red flag.
    The later stages were an intense and emotional affair, as multiple drivers raced hard for the lead. Among those in the mix were Dennis Malone, Terry Labonte, Bill Elliott, Neil Bonnett, Richard Petty, Ken Schrader, Tim Richmond, and Dale Earnhardt. During the final round of green flag pit stops, though, drama unfolded:
    [​IMG]
    Coming to pit road, Bill Elliott, still angry about an on-track incident last year, spun Dale Earnhardt, sending him into the outside wall hard.
    [​IMG]
    Earnhardt came back down and was rear-ended by Davey Allison. Earnhardt soldiered on, while Davey's day was done.
    [​IMG]
    With four laps to go, the race for the win was down to Malone, Petty, and Labonte. Labonte had the best car all day, and managed to pass Petty...
    [​IMG]
    ...but ran out of time thanks to having to clear the lap car of Buddy Arrington (himself a former Dodge driver), and Dennis Malone took the checkers for the first time in 1987, as well as Dodge's first win of the year. Making the win even sweeter was, later that day at Orange County Raceway in Rougement, NC, Pacific Coast Racing's two Winston Modified cars finished 1-2.
    After the race, ABC cameras captured Earnhardt and Elliott fighting on pit road, their crews also involved. It took the crews of Tim Richmond, Harry Gant, and Rusty Wallace to pull them apart. Penalties will be announced on Tuesday.
    Malone's win vaulted him back up to fifth in points. Bill Elliott continues to lead, while Richard Petty is second, seeking an eighth title.
    Next stop: Darlington.

    1987 TranSouth 500
    Dale Earnhardt started on the pole for a chaotic day at Darlington. The Track Too Tough to Tame claimed half the field before the first half was over, and by the end, only 16 cars were running, with the top-10 being the lead lap cars.

    To say it was a day to forget for Pacific Coast Racing is an understatement. Although Dennis Malone finished one lap down in 13th and maintains fifth in points standings, it was not a clean day, and the Mean Green Dodge Machine IV was so damaged, team owner Manny Brown immediately ordered the construction of the Mean Green Dodge Machine V before the race was even over, its predecessor now relegated to a parts source like the other three Mean Green Dodge Machines.

    In fact, it was a dramatic day for PCR all around. Not only did Malone bring the team's car to retirement (which, to be fair, the team always expects to happen at Darlington), Brown's two Modified Series drivers, Tim and Chloe Johnson, were being petulant. There was no doubt PCR's Modified program would run roughshod over the competition, so to avoid putting spectators to sleep, he tried incentivizing the Johnson Twins by saying the driver who won the 1987 Winston Modified Series championship would drive the new #80 Molson Dodge in the Winston Cup in 1988, and whoever didn't would do a single year in the Mean Green Dodge Machine in the Busch Grand National Series, then move up to Winston Cup in 1989 in a second car, marking PCRs first season as a multi-car team. The twins, whose close relationship is a hallmark of their driving style and teamwork, defied him at Thompson later that day, when Chloe intentionally stayed back and made no runs at the lead, allowing Tim to lead all 75 laps en route to his second win of the 1987 season. Brown laid into the two after the race, before Sheldon Johnson Jr., Brown's former Winston Cup driver from 1964 to 1980, threatened to walk and start a new Winston Cup team, at which point Brown backed off. It didn't help that he had fed stories to the media that Tim and Chloe's relationship had taken a turn and they were now like a modern-day Cain and Abel, an image the twins dispelled in the pre-race interview on the SETN telecast.

    Back to the TranSouth 500, in the closing stages, Jim Sauter was leading, and later, was running down Bill Elliott before a late green flag pit stop put him off the lead lap. Elliott ultimately held off Tim Richmond for his first win of 1987.

    Bill Elliott remains the points leader, and Richard Petty remains in second.

    Next stop: North Wilkesboro.

    As an aside, the Darlington track I'm using (darlington_85) has a weird quirk in its track.ini: if a car has a stall on the backstretch pit road near the exit, when they exit their pit, for some reason, the game registers them as spinning out and throws a caution. This happened several times throughout the race, and I had to rationalize them as debris cautions. I just read the readme in the track's folder, and it says it's an alpha release. So that checks out.

    1987 First Union 400
    North Wilkesboro Speedway is one of two tracks on the Winston Cup schedule from the first season in 1949, when it was called the NASCAR Strictly Stock Series. It is a unique short track where the backstretch goes uphill, and the frontstretch goes downhill. Literally, this is an up-and-down track.

    Dennis Malone started on the pole for the second time this year.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The second caution of the day involved a two-car tangle between Rusty Wallace and Lake Speed.

    [​IMG]
    By the second half, only four cars were on the lead lap: Malone, Terry Labonte, Richard Petty, and Geoff Bodine.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Lake Speed did not have a good day, being involved in another spin right in front of the pack, collecting Bob Wawack (they sure had some weird names back then; and I thought Jocko Maggiacomo was the zenith of strange names in NASCAR) and, I think, Rodney Combs. He still continued on, though.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Towards the end, rookie Derrike Cope had his engine blow up in the wrong place, and while trying to limp around (and nearly being clipped by AJ Foyt), Benny Parsons ploughed into the back of Cope, collecting his brother, Phil Parsons.

    [​IMG]
    The Mean Green Dodge Machine V, in its first race, performed beautifully, as Malone utterly dominated the race and took the win. He was vaulted to third in points. Bill Elliott, despite finishing a lap down, is still the points leader; second-place Richard Petty put in another strong performance for third, while Terry Labonte tried, but couldn't get around Malone.

    Next stop: Bristol.

    Because the guy is doing it for fun whenever he feels like it. I would highly recommend you learn some patience if you want to be a respected member of this community.

    I'm glad you are enjoying it, that is what it is there for. But understand people do this as a hobby, not to please you. I'm sure you don't mean any offense, but it is generally considered rude to ask things like "when is the next update" and "why does it take so long." Just accept that it will be updated when it is updated and asking won't change that one way or another. In most cases they wouldn't even be able to tell you anyway because it is basically when they feel like it and therefore whenever it gets done. Positive feedback is encouraged, even if it is to give constructive criticism (at least in most cases), but I wouldn't keep asking when things are going to be done or updated.

    Chrysler Announces Return to NASCAR

    Six years after pulling out of NASCAR, Chrysler wants back in. Several executives attended the First Union 400 this past Sunday, and determined the time for their return had come after Dennis Malone's dominating performance in an unsupported Dodge Mirada (Pacific Coast Racing claims the car is a Dodge 600 to keep the car legal, as the Mirada was discontinued in 1983).

    For the rest of the year, PCR will receive limited support (starting with the Valleydale Meats 500), and will have full support in 1988. Chrysler has announced their new model for NASCAR competition will be the newly-facelifted Chrysler LeBaron. In addition, Chrysler will provide full support for all Dodge-engined vehicles currently running in the NASCAR Winston Modified Series, including PCRs two entries.

    Following 1987, the Mean Green Dodge Machine V (or whatever number they're up to by the end of the season) will be cascaded to a new Busch Series program expected to last one year, while the Cup team will receive the new LeBaron. The new car, to be driven by Tim Johnson (after the recent spat between Sheldon Johnson Jr. and Manny Brown over pitting Tim against his twin sister Chloe over the ride), will be sponsored by Mopar and Nintendo (marking the first time a video game company has sponsored a NASCAR team), numbered 80, and has officially been named "Mopar Magic", in keeping with PCR tradition of giving their cars colorful monikers. No pictures of the car has been released, but it is described as "all-blue" with few contingency sponsors, but it is definitely a LeBaron.

    The above announcement comes in the wake of my first serious attempt at painting.

    Another question is, who’s the 1st driver to get killed? In his previous mock season 10 drivers died in just 5 years.
