NASCAR Hall of Fame members Tony Stewart and Ray Evernham announced on Monday the debut of a brand new racing series that the both are forming known as Superstar Racing Experience.
Former NASCAR Executives, Sandy Montag, and George Pyne will join Stawart and Evernham in creating the new series.
The format will include 12 drivers from several different forms of racing at 6 short track paved and dirt race tracks throughout the country. The series will be very similar to what was the IROC (International Race of Champions) Series that ended in 2006.
Tony Stewart will be one of the 12 drivers in the series inaugural season.
The cars will all be built the same, and a driver will be paired by a different crew chief randomly every race weekend. The races will last about 90 minutes in length, and will not be a competition focused on the number of laps.
The series will not have live pit stops, but will have a halftime break to make adjustments on the race cars.
Further news about the series, including car design, participating drivers, and race schedule, will be annoucned in the coming months.
