Rigs of Rods: Monster Outlaws

 

The League

  • Welcome to Rigs of Rods: Monster Outlaws! Before we begin, no - this is not the typical league that everyone has become accustomed to. This league will feature an all new format, which will be explained in detail throughout this document, and will hopefully bring a new perspective and a fresh concept for competition in the Rigs of Rods monster truck world!
  • The format we will be using is derived from the show on The Discovery Channel network, Street Outlaws.

The List

  • “The List” would consist of the Top 10 drivers of the Sim-Monsters community. At the beginning of the season, a list will be created based on the finishing positions - points wise - of competitors after a 4 week racing only event set. The top 10 will be compiled for the first event of the season.
  • For the drivers on The List, they have the ability to gain or lose positioning. Drivers have the ability to challenge one another to try and make their way up The List, but, only a driver directly below another can challenge them for a race. For example, Jim is ranked as number 6 on the list, and wants to try and take Jerry’s number 5 spot. Jim has the ability to call out Jerry for his spot, and Jerry has 1 week to either accept this challenge or lose his spot. Jim is not able to challenge anyone else, only Jerry since he is directly above him ranking wise.
  • Now, just because someone isn’t ranked on The List, doesn’t mean that they cannot have a chance at being apart of it. Whoever lies at the number 10 spot on the list is considered the “gate keeper”. They “control” entrance to The List. Anyone who is not on The List can challenge the “gate keeper” for a shot at his number 10 spot. If the challenger wins this race, then they have gained access to The List, and have become the “gate keeper” until they either move up The List or are beaten by someone who would like to enter The List.

The Race

  • Each week, a designated track will be in place to be used for all challenge races of that particular week. There will be a set night that the races will be conducted, and The List will be adjusted accordingly.

  • The “challenger” can challenge for the spot directly above him. If the person defending that spot accepts the race, that person holds the right to dictate how the race will be ran in some aspects. Stemming from the example used before, Jerry accepts Jim’s challenge. This particular week, the races are to be held at Nashville Super Speedway Season 2. Jerry has decided that he wants to conduct a 2 lap race, best 2 out of 3 to decide the winner. He has the ability to do this since he is the one defending his spot, so he is able to dictate what the “challenger” has to take away from him to obtain his spot. Of course, as stated previously, if the challenger were to win this challenge (being if Jim were to defeat Jerry), the challenger takes that person’s previous spot (Jim takes Jerry’s spot) and the person who was challenged will drop down a spot (Jerry takes Jim’s old spot).

Betting

  • At the beginning of the regular season, everyone will start out with $5,000. Drivers have the option to mutually agree on an amount that will be wagered for that specific spot. For example, Jim decides to wager $1,000 as a part of the challenge to take Jerry’s spot. Jerry agrees.

  • Whoever wins the race will take that prize money. A running spreadsheet will be kept with all money won/lost throughout the season. The money aspect will not count towards a drivers rank on The List, it will only be in place for some added fun and form more of a connection between the league and the show Street Outlaws, and to possibly make these drivers run a little harder in the race since there’s a little incentive involved.

The person being challenged has to accept the challenge? So, according to my understanding, if they don't accept the challenge then they automatically lose their spot.

 

Jim has the ability to call out Jerry for his spot, and Jerry has 1 week to either accept this challenge or lose his spot.

 

What if the person being challenged wins? Do both drivers keep their spots?

 

Of course, as stated previously, if the challenger were to win this challenge (being if Jim were to defeat Jerry), the challenger takes that person’s previous spot (Jim takes Jerry’s spot) and the person who was challenged will drop down a spot (Jerry takes Jim’s old spot).

 

And what if Timmy wants challenge Jim for the #6 spot on the list at the same time Jim wants to challenge Jerry for #5? Will it depend on who challenged who first? Say Jim challenged Jerry first, but Timmy wants to challenge Jim for #5. Jim beats Jerry because they challenged first and now Jerry's #5. Timmy races Jerry right? So Jerry could drop two spots on The List?

 

For example, Jim is ranked as number 6 on the list, and wants to try and take Jerry’s number 5 spot. Jim has the ability to call out Jerry for his spot, and Jerry has 1 week to either accept this challenge or lose his spot. Jim is not able to challenge anyone else, only Jerry since he is directly above him ranking wise.

 

 

Sorry this is so long.

If someone on The List is challenged, they have 1 week after the challenge is initiated to respond to it or the challenger will automatically move up and take their position and the person who previously held that spot would drop down 1 spot.

 

If the challenger wins the race, then he has successfully defended his spot and both drivers will remain where they were before the race took place.

 

The order that the races take place will depend on the order in which the challenges were initiated. In the situation you proposed, if Jim initiated the challenge to Jerry before Timmy initiated the challenge to Jim, then the race between Jim and Jerry would take place first. If Jim wins against Jerry, then Jim would assume his rank on the list and Jerry would drop down a spot. This means that Timmy would now race Jerry for the #5 spot. In theory, the person who is in the #1 position could drop down to #10 in one night. Anyone can lose/gain any number of spots in one night.
