lepage71 Wins 2017 Cup Series Championship
Tuesday, July 4, 2017
lepage71 - We have a new champion! Well, at least in a short-term sense. After Speedyman11, who had claimed multiple, consecutive titles since 2015, announced a limited schedule for the 2017 NHRL Cup Series, an opening emerged for a new, yet also familiar figure to drive to the championship. In the case of the Cup Series, however, the advantage might not have mattered much. In 2017, lepage71 regained the Cup Series throne, edging out a group of tough competitors with a stellar performance, featuring 6 wins, a league-leading 353 laps led, and a perfect 12 top-5 finishes. Although still relatively modest, his margin in the standings, 78 points (1877-1799), was the largest gap since the 2013 Truck Series, where he won by 108. Despite missing several events, Speedy still finished second in the standings, an impressive feat accompanied by four wins. Rookiesrock, always a serious contender, took the third step on the podium with 9 top-5s, but surprisingly no victories. KartRacer had a breakout performance in fourth, earning his first two NHRL victories, including a late-race thriller at Texas over both lepage and Speedy. Breeze finished in the top-5 in the Cup standings for the second straight season. Rated 5/5 (2 votes).

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 (2 votes).

Speedyman11 Claims Second Cup Series Victory
Thursday, August 18, 2016
lepage71 - Close battles have become a fixture of the NASCAR Heat Racing League during the caution flag era. Last season, Speedyman11 captured his first NHRL Cup Series championship by just a few positions on the race track. This season turned out to be no different. Incredibly, his follow-up performance led not just to another Cup Series title, but a virtually identical result in the standings. In 2016, Speedy clinched his second series championship by 16 points, once again, over lepage71 (1863-1848). He did so on the strength of a series-leading 7 wins, 11 top-5s, 7 poles, and 431 laps led. Also similar, lepage surged late in the season, closing with 2 victories of his own and 10 top-5s. Ever-steady Rookiesrock, meanwhile, trailed them by a mere 60 points, adding another pair of wins to his resume. In fourth, Breeze put together his most solid Cup Series campaign to date, with 9 top-5s and a perfect 12 top-10s. And just behind (1683-1649), always-consistent BlackKnight matched his career-best effort in Cup by finishing fifth in the standings. Rated 5/5 (1 vote).

League Hosting Holiday Derby on Friday, December 19th
Wednesday, December 17, 2014
lepage71 - Oh yes, it's that time of year again. The league is...slightly proud...to announce its second annual Holiday Bash! The only thing is, this celebration IS a bash, literally. That's right, we're talking about DERBY, Part IV. On Friday the 19th, a pack of selfish, unholy drivers will be gearing up in the Classic Series and heading to the irritable walls of Bristol_SP in a grudge match of survival and self-servingness. As last season proved, the fearful will be skipping this race, hiding under their dampened bed covers in a vein and sad hope that Santa will soon deliver some morsel of future courage. For those with the mettle, however, that means 100 laps of no rules racing. These festivities and more will take place in the NHRL server on Friday, December 19th at 10 PM Eastern Time. The event is open to anyone who draws breath, including non-league-members and any two-bit clown who's donning a Santa suit. Skip this event again, and you'll be missing a second chance to make history. Rated 5/5 (3 votes).

DaveO Retains NHRL CUP Series Title in 2013
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
lepage71 - Sensing a pattern? In 2012, DaveO won 8 races and topped teammate lepage71 for the CUP Series title. He wrote a similar storyline in 2013, reaching victory lane 8 times and topping...well, you can figure out the rest. It was a remarkable season, as Dave qualified on 7 poles and led 563 laps. Although he trailed in the wins category (3), lepage finished just 65 points behind Dave thanks to similar consistency. Between them, the NHRL Racing duo hogged 19 of the 24 1st- and 2nd-place finishes. Their team dominance belied a close competition deeper in the ranks. In a twist, 2nd through 5th in the standings went to the same drivers, in the same order, as the NBS Series. Rookiesrock contended every week, ending up 3rd, but remains mired in a victory slump. bover907 and cruisectrl built on their strong NBS campaigns, scoring 6 top-5s apiece. In 2014, the series will greet not just a new mod from bover, but also a new team that includes bover. However, many are dubious that this team will actually write a news release to tell us about it. Rated 5/5 (2 votes).

Saturday, April 20, 2013
lepage71 - Saturday night competition will be returning shortly to the NASCAR Heat Racing League! And a whole bunch of drama will be coming along with it.

DaveO Wins the CUP Series Championship in 2012
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
lepage71 - DaveO entered the 2012 season with a new team and strong expectations. After scoring 8 wins, earning 6 poles, and leading over 500 laps, perhaps his expectation should have been even higher. In an outstanding campaign, Dave succeeded Rookiesrock as the CUP Series champion and became the third different series champion in three seasons. Dave was in the driver's seat most of the series, although teammate lepage71 won 5 races and closed the final margin to 33 points (2466-2433). Teamwork was an asset; nowhere was this more evident than at Talladega, where both drivers dodged crashes, fell to the back, and drafted to a 9-second margin over the rest of the field. Perpetual top-5 artists Hammer (1 win), Rookie (1 win), and bover907 followed in the standings. Bmxtwins (1 win) and kyle contented in the early stages before encountering difficulty later in the year. And in an underrated run, DusterLag had his most consistent season, collecting 5 top-5 finishes. Rated 5/5 (3 votes).

Courageous? Enter the Wad It Up 100 at Wilkesboro!
Saturday, June 25, 2011
lepage71 - Want a little chaos, destruction, and circus music, all packaged together in a full-length race? We thought so. The NASCAR Heat Racing League will be hosting its first derby event on Friday, July 8 at 11:00 PM ET. The race, open to all drivers, will be a 100-lap test of survival at nwilkesboro n using the NHRLC11 mod. Most importantly, the league's ordinary driving and pitting rules will NOT be in effect. That means anything goes, anytime, anywhere! The security guards at the gate will be checking for angry faces, so poor etiquette, intentional contact, and dive-and-gouges will all be requirements for success. As an added bonus, free BBFF "hit me" bumper stickers will also be handed out. Who will survive the wreckage and come out on top? Don't ask us, it's really anyone's guess! Rated 5/5 (4 votes).

Rookiesrock Collects Second Straight CUP Series Title
Wednesday, March 5, 2008
lepage71 - In 2007, Rookiesrock once again finished on top of the CUP Series points standings, fighting as part of a four-car battle in a season filled with tight competition. Rookiesrock, efgordon, lepage71, and d3efan all had outstanding campaigns, each notching at least 3 wins, 13 top-5s, 15 top-10s, and respective points totals 2986, 2964, 2935, and 2880. Despite the close margins, Rookiesrock gradually consolidated his lead with stable finishes, a reliability that would ultimately fuel his road to the championship. efgordon mounted a late charge that came 22 points short, but still walked away with a career-best finish in the standings as consolation. Familiar members claimed the remaining top-10 spots; Stick77 (5th), "Back Row" Skoty Speed (6th), actlabs11 (7th), DavisV (8th), Reef (9th), and bover907 (10th) earned hard-fought standings positions.

Wednesday, February 13, 2008
