The real-life 2017 season was marked by a dominant, championship-winning performance from Martin Truex, Jr. It's been ten years or more since any driver posted a comparable season: Truex won eight races, had the most Top Five finishes, the most Top Tens, and led the most laps, despite having two more DNFs than his closest two competitors (Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick). 2017 also saw the last full-time racing seasons for a number of well-known drivers: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, Boris Said and Michael Waltrip. Waltrip's strong finish at Daytona was one of the most heart-warming racing stories of the year. You'll be able to re-live the farewell season of each of these iconic drivers with this new card set for RED WHITE & BLUE RACIN'!
The biggest change for pro racing in 2017 was a new damaged vehicle repair rule. Essentially, the new rule gave teams just five minutes to repair cars on pit road. If repairs could not be completed in the five-minute time frame, the car was sent to the garage area and was prohibited from re-entering the race. Not surprisingly, the new rule had a significant effect on race CRASH DNFs, increasing them substantially. You'll see the effect of the new damaged vehicle rule captured in the various driver PIT CREW grades in this new card set.
The 2017 Pro Season set for RED WHITE & BLUE RACIN' has a total of 58 drivers, based on the real-life pro racing season. Each card is presented in one of the team's real-life color schemes. In many cases, multiple drivers for the same team are represented with different color schemes. We've marked alternate drivers of a given car with "x" on hood; the primary driver does not have one. A few blank driver cards have been included in this set, too, in case you'd like to switch drivers to different teams, or create new drivers of your own choosing. Just pencil in the ratings, (and add color, if you're artistically-inclined) and you're ready to go!
We made a few track changes for 2017, largely to reflect the high-profile "collections" at the end of some of the year’s big races. To really capture the feel of the Daytona and Talledega finishes, we suggest you consider using "The Big One" advanced option, found near the end of the RWBR rules booklet. We also made some small adjustments to the placement of TV results, based on actual 2017 TV viewership. Your 2017 season will have its own unique developments, but you can expect it to unfold in a manner not unlike what really happened on the track in '17!
