The new season of the CarQuest World of Outlaws Sprint Car Season kicks off with some familiar faces. In hardware we check out more very impressive Formula Wheel releases and some real world drivers compare the brakes performance between their real and sim brakes.

TITLE SPONSOR READ:

Are you tired of your pedals feeling like a video game? Want to step up to feeling like you’re actually driving? 

We designed our P1 Pro Pedals to feel exactly like a real car giving you a better feeling when you’re driving. Push braking zones to the limit and avoid locking up by having a finer feel of the limits. Trail brake into the corner smoother allowing you to carry more speed. 

Our P1 Pro Pedals will be the last set of pedals you’ll ever purchase for your simulator. Lifetime Warranty is included. That means if you ever run into issues in years to come, we’ll service them and keep them perfect!

Elvis Rankin Converts Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series Results Into Real-World Title Shot

Earlier this year, Indianapolis-based teenager Elvis Rankin impressed sim racing and real-world racing pros alike with a stellar performance in the inaugural Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series. His runner-up finish in that championship gave him the opportunity to compete in this year’s Skip Barber Formula Race Series in the real world, with a half-season scholarship to help him showcase his skills.

Flash forward to this week’s season finale at Circuit of the Americas, and Rankin has done much more than just show up for half the races. It took him just two rounds at his debut event at Lime Rock Park to find the top step of the podium for the first time, and after formalizing a full-season campaign, he enters Rounds 13 and 14 with a 13-point championship advantage.

Elvis won the sbrs 2022 season

Update sent in from Listener Jason Bosse

Skip Barber formula series’ last race week was Nov 29th and 30th. I do not know his finishing positions (he’s too cool to respond to old mx5 racing buddies) but the season is over and he is champion. I do not think he had much competition in this year’s group of drivers. This report was written right before the last weekend at cota….Circuit of the Americas. In other news, he did have a somewhat good showing in a F4 test in Europe amongst a group of new drivers.

iRacing Setup Differ – Message from Developer

  1. Hi Steve what a nice surprise you mentioned the iRacing SetupDiffer software on your show. with the busy season around thanksgiving, i am a few shows behind in listening to the podcast. I just listed to the November 10th show today.
  2. I created the iRacing SetupDiffer because at the time, all the setup comparison tools required you to export the setups to an HTML file and compare the “files” themselves. that has a number of problems, the main one being the comparison program has to be updated to work with each new car, and occasionally, with season updates, or changes that iRacing makes to an existing car. with the iRacing SetupDiffer,
  3. I wanted to create a tool that was simple and straightforward, and worked with any car, and any seasonal update, without forcing users to constantly download new versions of the software. from the user feedback I’ve received, this has been a success. one of the most often mentioned features is the ability to compare the existing setup in iRacing (extracted live), with a version used in a previous race or practice session (extracted from the telemetry files). Also, not that it makes any real sense to do so, but it can also be fun to compare setups from completely different types of cars, just to learn what is different between them. anyway, thanks for mentioning the software. it was an unexpected surprise. see you on the track

Podium Racing Wheel F1® at a reduced price for a limited time!

https://forum.fanatec.com/categories/blog

QR2 – this is a fundamental change to the ecosystem and our opportunity to make major improvements to the quick release. While we (and BMW) are satisfied with our QR design currently being used on the M4 GT3 race car, it has been a challenge to bring this design to mass production for our full range of steering wheels and wheel bases (including a ‘Lite’ version for our CSL Series). The extended development time has ensured the best possible future for the Fanatec quick release. The latest pre-production samples are performing great, but we will only provide release dates and pricing information when we are ready.

Wheel Base production – many of you have noticed we have been ‘sold out’ of some of our wheel bases for some time. The demand has been very high, and our production has been stalled by component shortages. We will continue to work hard to address this bottleneck, but the effect of the semiconductor crisis continues to be felt across the industry, and I can confirm that the CSL DD will not be available again until Q1 2023.

Podium Steering Wheel Bentley GT3 – the development of this wheel has also been affected by the chip shortage. Although this product was already used very effectively in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and its mechanical and structural design is well-proven, we were unsatisfied with the performance of the display, and we have used the extra time to completely re-engineer the electronics. We now plan to launch the wheel in the first half of 2023.

Now for the best news of the day. Despite the supply delays, we were recently able to secure all components for the Podium Racing Wheel F1, and run the production line at full capacity. Because we know it will be difficult to get your hands on our entry-level bases until next year, we decided to offer the Podium Racing Wheel F1 at a reduced price for a limited time. (We would like to offer this price until the CSL DD returns, but we expect a high demand, so let’s say ‘while stocks last’.)

Coke Series Recap

Racer.com recapped the Coke Series Championship event held at the Nascar Hall of Fame

https://racer.com/2022/10/27/enascar-iracing-end-2022-season-with-hall-of-fame-finale/

“It was really cool,” Kirwan said of Earnhardt Jr. presenting the trophy. “It was also awesome before the race even started Dale came up to all of us and chatted for a bit. He came up to me and talked about the stream and everything like that. It was cool for him to be there and come support it.

“Of course the trophy is really nice, he did a really good job on it. To have his name on it is cool and even after he stuck around, and we chatted with him. He took me and Rajah Caruth up on Glory Road and checked out one of his dad’s old cars, one of Richard Petty’s old cars. He even got me to hop into one of Petty’s old cars at one point which was cool. It was just cool to hang out and talk sim-racing and the event and everything.”

In addition to the trophy, Kirwan will also take home the $100,000 prize. He has no plans for the money just yet, but he did say his spotter, crew chief, and others who supported him will be getting a cut of the winnings.

https://traxion.gg/magical-live-championship-for-enascar-iracing-hopefully-just-the-beginning/

One particular storyline from the event was the revelation of Zalenski’s severe scoliosis, a condition that he’s dealt with his whole life, never before something he’s felt the need to bring up as he’s competed for the title five times in the last six years.

“Something I never talked about was my condition because it’s never been relevant,” Zalenski said. “I was born with very severe scoliosis, so I had surgery about 10 years ago. It was like 200-degree curves in the spine, if I didn’t get surgery, I wouldn’t be able to be here racing for sure.

“My lungs will be squished because it just gets worse. I had surgery and the best I could do is two 50-degree angles. Some of the spine is metal nails and screws. I’m all patched up. With all that considered, it’s crazy that I’m doing this. I always wanted to be a NASCAR driver. It just wasn’t in the cards for me.”

Zalenski said it was only the second time that he’s ever flown on an airplane, opting not to travel to eNASCAR Media Day back in 2020 due to the condition. While it wasn’t the rig he was used to racing in, it was good enough to show the most speed in the first half of the title race and ultimately finish second.

Series Updates: IMSA and European Sprint/Endurance Series

With the announcement of this car coming to the iRacing service, many have asked how we will implement it into our different series. 

Please note that these updates are upon the arrival/availability of the BMW LMDh and are not a guarantee of any specific release date*

European Sprint/Endurance Series 

Once available, the BMW LMDh will replace the LMP1 class as the top tier of this series. The Dallara P217 LMP2 and the GTE class will remain as is. 

iRacing IMSA/ IMSA Endurance

Once available, the BMW LMDh will join this series. In order to make room, the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 will come out of these series. It will still be available to race in both the GT Sprint and GT Endurance Series. 

Anyone who has purchased the Porsche 919 or the Audi R18 within 90 days of the release date of the BMW LMDh will receive a $5 credit. Anyone who has purchased either car within 1 year of the BMW LMDh release will receive a $10 credit.

Active Pedal Aftermath

Simucube posted a video talking about their new Active pedal

I see this as a multi stage process.

  1. Let the user define a static profile for there pedals that lets them tweak the feel and throw of each pedal without messing around with springs, dampers, and stops.
  2. The pedal software grabs what car the player is driving from telemetry and let the player map a predefined profile to each car so the pedals change from car to car.
  3. Let the pedal software run canned effects based on limited telemetry from the games.
  4. Allow game developers to directly set there own profiles based on real life information from the car. The player should always be able to override this with there own profile if they so choose.
  5. Allow game developers to send high frequency effects to the pedals that play on top of the static profile. This would mirror part or all of the LFE/TrueForce effects so you can feel the engine vibrate and so on. This is a step above 3 in that it can be tweaked by each developer to better match the game or to use internal data not available to telemetry.
  6. Allow game developers to dynamically change the profile as time progresses. This is where we could add in brake fade by slowly moving points around on the profile.
  7. Go all in and allow the game developer full control over the pedal so they actively control the feedback loop.

Everything up through stage 3 is probably already implemented and mostly rests on Simcubes shoulders to implement for all games.

Stage 4 is not technically hard but it is a lot of bookkeeping to implement on the game developers side. We would need to dig up information about the physical pedals for every car we ever made and in a lot of cases we could not go back and touch the real car again to measure pedal force or throw if we don’t have that information. Going forward of course it is just a matter of coming up with a simple rig to test the pedals out and recording the profile.

Stage 5 is probably not that hard to implement. We have seen wheels moving towards high frequency effects for a while now, like the Logitech TrueForce effect. Once a game supports one of those effects it is relatively easy to redirect part or all of them on to the pedals. Adding it in at first is not trivial at all, but once you have it then it is easy to repurpose.

Stage 6 would allow us to model slow changing events such as brake fade or a loss of brake fluid pressure without having to fully implement a proper feedback loop with the physics like we do with wheels.

Stage 7 is the dream, but that would take significant effort on our end (and all other game developers as well) to implement. We would need to make a new dynamic physics model for the pedals and update it fast enough that we can accurately simulate motion in real time I’m not even sure it is 100% possible.

The big question is will this be popular enough that developers feel it is justified to implement. If the price is right I suspect we could see this really take off, but if the cost is closer to motion platforms than DD wheels we will probably be stuck at stage 3 for quite a while.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: Martinsville

  • Stephen- broken toe line
  • Kyle – broken toe link
  • Tom – broken toe link
  • Mike- p10 – got involved in some wrecks that we’re not my doing including getting completely ass packed well after the Caution came out including getting spun around sideways and stopped for no yellow came out with over five minutes damage in three laps down. I waited for the lucky dogs and they eventually happened and I got to the leadlap.  Then I got the dreaded drive-through penalty on the first green white checkered on the second green white checkered. I got the Lucky dog so on the final restart just hold onto it from P 11 one guy got black flag do not put me to the top 10 I’ll take it after a very tough week.

Sunday Open

Steve – P 25th,first 38 laps not one green flag lap. I couldn’t take it any more.

Wednesday Open:  Phoenix 

  • Hall – p1, Started mid pack,  was slowly creeping up into top 10, then horribly missed my pit to go all the way back, worked by way back up eventually to 3rd.  On a restart leader spun tires, which cause a weird chain reaction that resulting in me not getting told by my spotter coming back on the track from the dog leg that it was three wide, plus net code and I get knocked down low, but gather it up in around 25th.  Then there is a big wreck right in front of me.  I’m creeping through it and still one of them rolls into my left rear.  1 min damage, fixed eventual.  I tell my self there still more time than the A open to race.  Caution comes with 62 to go and I say this is in my favor.  With 10 to go the leader is 3.5 seconds ahead of me.  But they fade hard on last 10 laps, I lead the last 5 and take 2rd win of season.  150th overall win

  • Tom D – pretty much p4 all night, but got shuffled at the end.  
  • Stephen- p wrecked out
  • Mike-p1- started P 20 quickly made it up to fourth by the end of the first run then a long green flag run. I went to Short pit. The caution came out while on pit Road I was able to come back around and beat the leaders before they got off pit Road and maintain the lead marched on basically ran top three. Most of the night ended up leading the most laps. I really hard to fight for it at the end. One guy stayed within one second the whole way, but it stayed green and I took home the win! That’s my 87th career win. That’s four wins for me this year Bristol dirt, new Atlanta, Charlotte, Roval, and the Phoenix finale

League / Hosted Races

  • Hosted – 
    • Ellis -Hosted. RUF and 87s at tally. Came from the back to the front then got wrecked on the caution came from the back to the front again was leading on the white and got dumped for the win.  P4.

    • Dw12 at Michigan really fun racing upfront three-way for the lead several labs in a row before we wrecked. 
    • Supercars that Michigan was in the lead pack going into green flag stops came off pit Road leading the race some fool who didn’t pit for gas runs out and decide he’s gonna block. The exit of pit laying onto the backstretch. Well it’s really only one lane why’d I tried to Sweek by, but it didn’t work, and he wrecked all the leaders

After much discussion combined with looking at the data and what’s on the horizon, iRacing has decided to have the Formula Renault 2.0 take the season off for Season 1, 2023.

After that time we will reevaluate the future of how the car is used on the service.

As we continue to solidify our internal plans for future vehicle content , we will work to develop series options that promote the best participation across a variety of racing classes and disciplines.

We appreciate your understanding.

  • Greg – was leading on the gwc and lost connection
  • Mike  – started p24 but quickly worked my way fwd – stayed between 3rd to 12th basically, always pitted for fuel when others didnt to make sure i didnt get caught out… I will take the podium! p3!
  • Sunday Open
    • Stephen – P1 baby!!!! Me and @Tom Dreiling should of been 1 2 in some way. But a bad caution caught him on pit road put him a lap down and never got another yellow. He was leading before and during stops to.
    • Steve – Started 25th. Was a caution filled race with 9 cautions for 36 Laps.  Got to 3 taking Mikes advice of trying right sides only.  Car was good on 2 tires.  On the 2nd to last caution had to pee, pulled in went a lap down and finished 19th.
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike – early in the race got taken three while I was in the outside. I got pushed to the wall 10 minutes damage in the finishing the race P 30.
    • Tyler – P14 after starting 20th. Decent race but the aggressiveness going 3 wide was not pretty. Passing was difficult and you really had to lean on someone to pass. Race ending was interesting as the yellow came out as the leader got the white. Was hoping the race would have finished then. On to Homestead. 

Wednesday Open:  Homestead

  • Hall – p 15, sloppy race, wrong coin flip on caution timing, but stayed out of the wrecks
  • Tyler – P 14, too many cautions. Had one decent green flag run which helped the car set. Worked the high line most of the race. Was able to race with teammate Kyle for a good bit. Always a good time with the team.

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.  18- goal was to finish the race and I did do that.  I ran as high as a eigth. The people who put it on the first caution at sixth lap could make it out one more stop. I didn’t think they would be able to so I didn’t stop it ended up screwing me later.  
    • Donnie – P7, Q15.  Good middle and long run speed.  Race was uneventful for the most except for lappers trying to win the race on every lap.


Official Series


  • Ellis – Chris Maguire hosted- super cars at Michigan. Great race I missed the big wreck ended up P5.
  • Skip barber at Sonoma got clipped from a wreck in lap one had to pit for a meatball flag to get my fast repair and came out nine out of 11 Worked my way up to P5!!! my fastest lap was pretty quick for me, but I’m still three seconds off the leader.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: Texas

  • Hall – p15, 1 yellow, but came while lap down for green pit.  Might have gotten closer to 10th if no yellow
  • Donnie – P13, Q15
  • Sunday Open
    • Hall –  Punted with 20 to go while leaving a lane open and holding my line.  Welcome to
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -p6 – I don’t know how to describe that early first run tonight in Fixed, after 10 or so labs every single person was hospital loose out of two. I mean loose loose loose, super loose hang on for your life.  Know I just mean literally everyone in the room we all pitted for tires the second run it was like nothing ever happened. We all stuck like glue third run. It started getting loose again after 15 but that first run was weird.  I got some short runs at the end. We had enough tires and I was able to make a run forward.
    • Tyler p11?
    • Stephen –  p4

Wednesday Open:  Tally

  • Hall – p wreck on gwc, no where to go
  • Ellis – Pole! 12 teammates in TeamSpeak to run the event. Lost force feedback around Lap twenty . I could not get it back on finally a caution around lap 30. I had to pit and turn the wheel off and turn it back on and went to dead last. I eventually got to the front all the way from the back and led a bunch of laps before caution with 24 to go, now we are good on fuel running P3 for the restart. With some more laps in with a restart it was eight to go the wreck in front of me, and I get clipped and destroyed.  dnf 
  • Kyle P – P2 Started up in P7 and just kept it clean. Got to the front at the halfway mark. And had Tom Dreiling pushing me until we had a green flag pit. Came out of the pits with 7 to go and Tom was to nice and let me get back ahead of him to hold the lead. Came to 1 to go and P3 and P4 decided to make a run on the top side and I went to block but started to leave Tom Behind so I dropped back down to pick up tom and on the front we decided to go high and try for the win but just ran out of track Came home with a P2 and Tom with a P3. I led the most laps with 43 and set the fastest lap at a 48.974 finishing 0.0092 behind the lead and Tom and P4 finished tied 0.156 behind the leader. Thank you again to Tom for pushing me around Dega. iRacing farming has began again this week. 2500 IR is the goal by sunday. 
  • Tony R – P7 got clipped and damaged early in the race sp just putted along. Ended up getting fuel for last caution before the gwcs kicked in. Plenty of guys ran out of fuel at the white so just zoomed by – `
  • Steve – Did not qualify, started 27th and had two team mates in the split.  Bobby Jonas and Brian Maccubin.  This was my first race with Tifosi and first race ever in NIS. Rode around in the back thru a few cautions.  On the 3rd to last caution on lap 58 I went in and got just fuel with Brian and Bobby with around 40 to go.  We figured we could save fuel and finish to the end.  Another caution came out on lap 85 and all 3 of us stayed out gaining great track position with Brian running 1st, myself 2nd and Bobby was 5th.  I was going to push Brian to the win when the yellow came out on lap 94 about a ¼ mile from the start finish line.  Brian restarted 1st and I started on the outside in 2nd with Bobby starting I think 5th.  Mike Ellis was spotting for us and on the last lap Brian was behind me with a car in front of me and a car to the outside.  Mike told me to shoot the middle, which I did and Bobby punted me over the line for the Win!  Thanks to Mike, Bobby and Brian for all the help.  I was definitely outside my comfort zone as I have run an official race in years.  Thanks for allowing me on Team Tifosi!
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p13- Ran top 10 pretty much all race led a bunch of laps. About 15 to go. They wreck in front of me while I was run. An eighth and I got collected was seven minutes damage. Surprisingly the car was still fairly fast and I brought it home.

  • Ellis – F 2000 at Oulton park – qualified P8 out of 16. Got wrecked out in lab one. I actually went into the grass to avoid an incident end up in the back came around towards the end of the lap and the guy was fun and stopped. I went to go around him and as soon as I did he back in to me.
  • Q p seven and I finished P7. I finally got a finish even though I sped off on my own it was that last I did work my way up through attrition

BL’s Offline Real World Replica Rosters

2022 NASCAR Cup Series – Next Gen

For the 2022 season I decided to first create a full season roster that can be used for championships, and am now working on some race specific rosters which I will continue to add as I complete them.

Again spent some time adding driver names to the window banners of every single car in the correct font and as close to correct sizing and placement as I could to add to the immersion.

Made sure all cars have correct pit box colors and no blank pit boards.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Darlington

Ellis –   p3! – Started mid pack got to about 5th and ran back half of the top 5 for most of the night. At one point we split tire strategy and I ended up leading some laps. Some short runs at the end played in my favor, I will take the podium!

Rochette- P11 Sounded like a sqwauker all night – we couldnt hear him in teamspeak (started on pole led a couple laps went to pit to try to figure out audio. Came from the back to front again pitted mustve got a bf for something i had to go to the back again made my way up front. Was definitely top 3 car again. Pitted for 2 tires on that gwc. 2nd place  hit the wall i got in the back made the save than hell broke loose and see how that ended up

  • Hall – p 21 laps down, caught in unavoidable
  • Spiker – P11, Q24
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette-P33rd 2nd straight pole for the lady in black but that wench had other plans. First steam VR Decided it wanted to quit on me 3 laps in of my second and half lead out of T2 and i made it safe to the inside wall without killing anyone. Than got iracing back up was 4 laps down. Think i passed more cars than i ever had to get within a lap down and some back marker just doors me out of 4 and kills it. Ive had tons of fun with Darlington this week but have had the crappiest luck
    • Hall – p wrecked unavoidable on lap 3.  
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p wrecked out – got squeezed hard into the wall at one point early, 3 and half minutes dmg – car was still fast though – as i did repairs each caution i would drive back up through the field – like 25th to 10th or 21st to 8th. At some point I gave up on fixing damage and kept track position and got to the lead for at least one lap… I was running fifth near the end and someone ahead spun way down low and came right back up into the track and I plowed in hard… 16 minutes damage. I’ll tell you what that race with Tom tonight was a lot of fun. I drove through the field multiple times. We run third and fourth and I’m trying my hardest to get to second and I can’t do it and I finally say OK tell him you take a swipe at it and he drives right up to the first takes the lead. If there was no caution he had them covered . I don’t know in a fixed race like that in NiS… everyone in the same set. To be a good notch faster than everyone else it’s felt really good
    • Tom – P-.wrecked out – w about 10 to go drove up from 4th to the lead – but the caution came, took tires restarted 7th got to 4th but clipped a guy and spun out and wrecked hard… Needed a long run at the end to win it.

Race :  Kansas

Wed Fixed 

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p 11   mid pack speed.  No incidents.  
    • Ellis – p17 – ran about 20th to 25th most of the event – later got on alternate tire strategy and led some laps… But no late cautions put me dead last on lead lap.
    • Kyle P – P7 Started 12th and started to strong and burnt up my tires. Found the top ;ine was harder on the tires and made the car free on exit. Adjusted my line to the bottom and found more consistency and speed. After falling to the high 20’s I made my way back through the field. Got as high as 5th but just couldn’t hold on to it. Last caution came with 10 go. Restarted with 6 laps in p9 and just battled my way to a p7. Darlington and Kansas have been great for farming iRating for me.
    • Tony R – P something something made it to lap 20 when decided to park it as my quality bar was hanging out in the 40s and was blicking. Been awhile since my internet took a big steaming pile.  
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p 6 – different set today but it was worse then last night – basically ran between 20th to 25th all race – some late cautions and some luck got me to the top ten for the final restart, p6 I will take it and walk away…

Official Series

  • Ellis – F 2000 at Lime rock- qualified P7 out of 13. Went off track by myself three different times ended up P9
  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall –  P1 at Daytona
      • Hard Fought with an actually full field.  Set the pole but had a competitor who was set up to run fast on the banking.  Stayed in his tow for the first half of the race, would run him down in the infield and loose a little ground on the bus stop.  But after I ran him down and passed him once in the infield he short pitted.  After Cycle I had a 3 second lead and pulled away.
      • 2nd and 3rd WIN at Daytona
        • Something about this car and track just lets me out run guys with higher iRatings.
  • SPIKER  

Nascar B-Open Kansas – P23, Q9.  Kansas is my worst track.  It seems so simple, but I am so slow here.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Daytona

Ellis –   p6 Greg and I ran P1 thru the first part of the race. Stephen Eventually got up there with us… At one point I made a bad move to the top and lost sometrack position but worked my way up for the final restart for us to be first third and fifth. We lined up 123 on the bottom. We had a nice bit of a breakaway wind up coming to the final corners Stephan made a move on Greg and basically took the win everyone else came up quickly and it was a scramble. But we got the win. 

Rochette- P5

  • Stephen-P1
  • Greg – P3 – let 75 laps and lead the white flag lap
  • Spiker – P13, Q2.  Ran up front, led laps, had a great green flag stop (Lap 39).  Saved fuel under every caution.  Started 3rd GWC in P3, ran out of fuel in T1/T2.  All in all, a plus positive in iR during Daytona Week!  
  • Saturday Fixed –
  • Sunday Open
  • Rochette-P4 
  • Greg p2 – Led 35 Laps and lead the white flag lap
  • Hall – p wreck on white flag, running in third lane, and one of the “greats” made a mistake on the apron and took us all ou
  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p Got involved in the first three cautions one and a half minutes damage was able to recover after fixing it up to leave some labs on the final stop I ended up with excessive speeding and the Panthers had to drop to the end with a 18 to go. Got involved in another wreck 2 1/2 minutes damage I was getting it repaired and then at the end of the repair it’s so how gave me tires and I lost the lap. Later got the lucky dog and restarting P 10 for the final restart. Got wrecked coming to the line that put me over the incident limit black flag. P

Race :  Darlington

Wed Open:

Hall –p19  tough Strength of Field, 4.7 k.  Expected to get right at a top 20, should have had a 15th or higher but pitted on the wrong side during green flag stops.

Ellis – p12. Basically ran top five most of the day went to short pad on a green flag stop and the caution came out as we came on the pit Road ended up losing a lap. Never could get it back. 

Kyle P – P1 Started 10th and slowly worked my way to the top 5 in the first 7 laps. Lap 13 a caution comes out. I was trying a strategy that didn’t work out and restarted P1 but faded fast. In a hand full of laps we got a caution and I got tires. Restarted in the high 20’s and through attrition I marched my way back up front. With 6 to go im running 5th and not making up any more spots. A lapper lost it in front of the leaders and took out the top 3 and I edged out 4th place before the caution came out. From there it was focus time and after 4 more restarts I raced my way to a P1. Thank you to Mike for spotting and Bobby for cheering me on.

Tony R – P11 started 2nd. Stayed up front for most of the race. Just ran my tires off of the last 30 laps.



Official Series

  • SPIKER  

Nascar B-Open (Darlington) P9, Q9.  – Good run, my speed fell off a little at the end of the run.  Only received one stripe, as I thought I would test my tire wear entering T1 a little aggressively. 




League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. Joe – p9
    2. Greg p5
    3. Mike – p4. A good team showing. Too many cautions at the end we had to pit before the final gwc’s…. Several stayed out we still have no idea how they made it on fuel.

  • Hosted – 
    1. Ellis  -Chris Maguire 87 cars at Talladega started P5 out of 40 got to the lead by lap three got wrecked later where I flipped completely upside down which was pretty fun. They had a competition caution and lined them up again started 19th got the ninth pretty quickly but then got dumped.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Glen 

Ellis –   p20. 

  • Hall – p21 taken out by ridiculous dive bomb
  • Spiker – P P16, Q17 – Running P8-P12, I was too conservative on pit entry being too afraid to get caught speeding.  Ruined my run.  But Watkins Glen is a blast.
  • Sunday Open

Hall – p 10   would prefer a better result but the race was fun as we had 4 cars basically in a close pack the whole run.  Had to stay on toes and turned fastest laps of the week.

Race :  Daytona

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p 6  Struggled to get to the front, had to fix damage twice, finally caught some brakes at the end and had a shot but when it shook out i had no help
    • Ellis – p2 Got to the front pretty quick and led the first half of the race pretty much leading most of the laps. Obviously I used more fuel than everybody else and had to pit it before the halfway mark called out to my team member to stay out so he wouldn’t be screwed and pitted by myself. Much later in the race I finally catch a caution which puts me back into the race and on the same fuel strategy then restarted P seven. Then a couple late cautions I was able to get myself up to fourth , with this great run around the outside of a bunch of checked cars i went from 14th to 4th in one lap then was able to mix it up for the lead, on the white i was leading on the outside but no help 3 cars went low on me, fell to 4th but was able crossover and they wrecked but not quite enough P2. 
    • Kyle P – Pwrecked out
    • Tony R – P18 started on pole tucked in behind leader til green flag stops he pits 3 laps before me i take the lead back. Came out 2nd after my stop behind some lapped cars and hung out with them, took the lead back. Was gonna make it with only 1 stop but first caution came out with 20 to go. Should’ve stayed out as i fell back to 7th. But fast forward to white flag. Jumped to the outside in 8th had a car jump out in front let off the gas so i wouldn’t wreck him and got plowed from behind ugh…
    • Tyler – P 16 – started dead last as I was number 35 in my split. Played it safe and rode in the back. Out of 3 cautions I got tangled up in one with about 20 to go. Left front damage but not bad. Was able to rally up to 16th. Best part of the night was listening to our team finish solid. 
    • Tom D – P12 – had a top 5 q and ran up there the 1st run – once Mike took the lead I settled in behind him for the whole 1st run… He pitted before half way I stayed out w the leaders – after gf stops, still leading with enough fuel to make it… Much later a caution. Then the guy leading the outside gets bumper hooked into me and cleaned me out, no damage though, and tried to get back up there to help Mike but didnt have enough time. Great run, lead 5 laps, teammates running 1 and 2 the first half the race, a great event… 
    • Bobby –p1 So I shorted pitted under yellow, took tires and fuel, went 15ish laps, leaders pit, I made up enough spots picking way through to pit with them, came out in front and lead all the way til the white, then out of 4 took it back – 3 years straight wins at Daytona summer race! 6 straight years with a win in the nascar iracing series.That was crazy. Can’t thank my teammates at tifosi racing enough.
    • Spiker – P18, Q9.  I received a drive through penalty for passing under yellow.  After receiving the wave around and pit strategy, found my running P3 w/ 6 laps to go, I Lagano’d the outside line going into T1.  The most embarrassing moment yet.   
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p Pole position! Couldn’t get away from the front so pulled over on the back stretch and fell the eight to try to save fuel. Eventually caught enough cautions where we didn’t need to save fuel anymore and I was leading at 30 to go. Second line finally form and got by me before another Caution at P7 was 17 to go. 
    • Did another caution restart it P6 with eight to go. Was rat P5 and got turned on a guy that was trying to go around the outside. Car done. 

Rochette P15 so car 27 check. Got pole check. Last 2 times i was the 27 on a pole i was a weiner. As my old football / weightlifting coach used to say: NOT TODAY. had a save of a lifetime early on as a car from the outside just murders my right rear and was sideways and saved it but wouldnt be the only time i would be sideways. White flag on the outside was hit and hit again making me ride the wall and than just slid to the backstretch on my driverside door. Fun times



Official Series

    • Started seventh out of 14 and made it to P5
    • Started 13th got to 10th but then wrecked it
    • Start a P5 out of 14. By end of lap 1 i was up to second – i hunted the leader and forced the issue and got by, then i gapped him… Some guy who had started from pits was coming, was up to 3rd about 9 seconds back and he made up 7 seconds on me… my 85th career win

League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. David – p game crashed half way through race
    2. Mike – p15. Started dead last in P 29 got to pee 20 by the end of lap one. Hit it when the fuel window opened from 15th and pretty much ran that position the rest of the race.
  1. Ellis  –  Chris MacGuire – Hosted – 87 cars at Talladega started last p30. Got the lead by lap 10. Some guy parked it on the back stretch and the field came around and we plowed in. Hosts and admins were livid. 
  2. Then started P 29 out of 35. I quickly get upto about 12th within three laps and sure enough there’s a slow lap car in the middle of the track as the pack is coming they tell him to move he doesn’t do anything we all wreck. So frustrating but this is happened twice in a row. And they have over a dozen admins. 
  3. Supercars at Michigan- the sim crashed twice while getting into the car I rebooted and joined the race 4 laps Down. 
  4. The gen 5 at iss. 261 top speed. Was p1 on the white and a guy passed me under the yellow and wiped me out. 
  5. GEN five at Talladega. Got wrecked out lap 1
  6. 87s and Pro two at wild West Park.
