In 2012, RODDCAR was founded originally as “Superspeedway Cup” by Rodd Flagg with the goal to have a competitive transfer format style Superspeedway track league every Friday night. This vision was inspired and loosely based on a Superspeedway series Rodd competed in during the mid-2000’s using the NASCAR Racing 2003 simulation with the entity formerly known as Onlineracin.com. RODDCAR is known for being the longest running Superspeedway league on the iRacing.com simulation.
On August 31st, 2012 the first race was ran at Daytona International Speedway utilizing multiple Heat races, a trophy dash, B-main and A-main in a race your way in local dirt track style format. The A-main length expanded from the original 25 laps in Season 1 to 30 laps in Seasons 2-4. The league would use this format for the first 4 seasons. In Season 2 the league introduced the RODDCAR Shootout which at the time was called the “Superspeedway Shootout,” a non-points invite only event to kick-off the new season. An All-Star Race was also introduced in that season. In February 2013 the league began running a second night of the week on Wednesdays with the introduction of the RODDCAR Truck Tour, which at the time was called the “Superspeedway Truck Series.” The first ever running of the RODDCAR 500 which at the time was called the “Superspeedway 500,” a premier 500 kilometer crown jewel race, would make its debut on October 4th, 2013. The league would eventually take a break at the end of October 2013.
On March 21st, 2014 the second iteration of the league “iSuperspeedway” returned.

On February 2nd, 2015 the league would introduce a second crown jewel race at Talladega known as the “DraftHardt 300.” That same season also ended with the introduction of a third a crown jewel race known as the “Finale in Florida 400” which was reserved as a 400 kilometer race when the season ended at Daytona and generally when there was a playoff format in use. Season 7 would be the first time a playoff format would be used replacing drop week championships. In Season 11 the league would revert back to the original name “Superspeedway Cup” and race lengths would be expanded to a range of 200-250 miles for majority of races and abandoned the A/B-main race names in favor of a “Feature.” In October 2017 the league would begin running two additional nights a week on Wednesday’s & Sundays with the re-introduction of the Truck Tour, known at the time as DXT (Developmental Xfinity & Truck).
