40 drivers are drafted in to the participating teams of the season. The season features a total of 20 rounds, which are divided into 16 regular race days and four playoff days.
All points earned by the drivers during the regular season are reset before Round 16. The top 8 qualify for the playoffs and their points are set to 2,000. Even though only eight drivers qualify for the playoffs, the complete field still drives the remaining races. For the rest of the racers, it is all about earning points and avoiding relegation. The top four competitors get their points set to 3,000 before the final race to have a level playing field again.
At the end, the winner of the last race is crowned champion of the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series. The bottom 20 drivers have to drive against upcoming drivers in a relegation series that takes place during the off-season.
The race winner receives 43 points, the runner-up 39, third place 38, fourth 37 and so on. Only the results of the twelve best races are relevant to the final standings.
