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

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!

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.

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


Official Series




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

Formula Renault 2.0 Taking Season Off

Greg West Posts:

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.

  • And Willie Byron to give the command…

When the green flag drops Casey Kirwain and Vicente Salas lead the field into turn 1
There’s early trouble for Graham Bowlin and Michael Conti. Bowlin gets into the wall and Conti has nowhere to go.
They both save it, but the 48 has some damage for sure.
On lap 6 Matt Bussa moves his way into the top 10
On Lap 11 he is joined in the top 10 by Keegan Leahey and Zach Novac

By lap 12 Matt Bussas has moved his way into the top 5 and is looking good.
Up front Kasey Kirwan continues leading with 12 laps in and 88 to go.
Lap 16 brings out the first caution as Darik Bourdeau and Jimmy Mullis make contact.
Bourdeau gets spun around, but gets no big damages
Malik Ray will lead the field back to green because he didn’t pit, with Casey Kirwan alongside.

They go three wide for the lead on the restart with a new leader on lap 22, Steve Wilson
On lap 31, Mitchel deJong makes his way into the top 5, until… the next caution on lap 34
Three years ago, Zach Novak and Kegan Lehey had a memorably clean finish for the championship,
but this race they can’t avoid contact collecting Bobby Zalenski, Whitt and LaPradd, but no one with serious damage.
Seven cars stay out and the rest pit.

After the restart we see Dylan Ault and Bobby Zalenski battle at the top with Zalenski getting the jump and the lead at Homestead.
On lap 42 champion hopeful Steve Wilson makes his way back into the top 5
At this point Graham Bowlin is the lowest running playoff driver, but he also has the best drop-race to fall back on with an 11th place finish at Bristol
By lap 45 Steve Wilson has done a great job driving his way to the top of the field

Mithchel deJong is not giving up easily, and retakes the lead from Wilson as they go side-by-side on lap 52.
With 40 laps to go there’s a possibility of this becoming a fuel milage race the the end.
With 33 to go, green flag pit stops begin
After the pit cycle the top running order is

  1. Steven Wilson
  2. Casey Kirwan
  3. Colin Keetster
  4. Michal Conti
  5. Mitchel deJong
  6. Femi Olat
  7. Malik Ray
  8. Vicente Salas
  9. Michael Guest

With the laps counting down to 25 to go, Steven Wilson continues to show the way as he looks to win his way itno the championship finale, if he can hold on.
But with 20 to go it’s a new leader as Casey Kirwan Grabs the top spot.
Michael Guest is moving forward and into the third with 11 to go.
With 8 to go Graham Bowlin get by Michael Conti as we watch the live points change in real time until a caution hits with 7 to go, changing everything.
Parker Retzlaff hit the wall on his own, slides down to the infield and brings out a mysterious caution.

Everyone comes to pit road, but Steven Wilson wins the race off pit road after taking 2 tires.
So with the late restart we have the leaderboard as follows…

  1. Steven Wilson
  2. Casey Kirwan
  3. Michael Guest
  4. Collin Keester
  5. Graham Bowlin
  6. Nick Ottenger
  7. Mitchel deJong
  8. Femi Olat
  9. Dylan Duvall
  10. Matt Bussa
    The race is all bunched up with a natural GWC to close out the race.
    A caution comes out right after the restart with Garrett Lowe and Corey Vincent getting involved when Derek Justis went to block and pushed a driver all the way to the apron and got turned and back up into traffic

The playoff picture looks like this, Conti needs to beat Bowlin by eight spots to advance – and it needs to be a third place or better as Bowlin has the 11th place drop in his pocket.
Wilson, Kirwan, Guest and Bowlin lead for GWC#1
Good jump for Wilson on the next restart and trouble comes out again!
Logan Clampitt and Vicente Salas are involved! The 5 went low on Clampitt to make it 5 wide caused him to move up into the guy above, and they pile up
We also now have Nick Ottinger in the mix – If Nick finishes second and Bowlin loses a spot here, he can be in.
GWC number 2 and Wilson gets a good jump again.
We finally get the white flag and Guest tries to run down Wilson, but can’t get to him, Steven Wilson is your race winner! His series best 4th win of the season! Punching his ticket tot the finale at Phoenix

Grahm Bowlin crashes in 4 on the white flag lap when Nick Ottinger runs out of gas into Turn 3 – Graham Bowlin gets knocked out…
BUT he has a P11 to fall back on – He was eight points ahead of Michael Conti – Conti got 6th, he’ll miss by three points The Drop did have an effect.
If there was no drop, Conti would have been in and Bowlin would have been out.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: ROVAL

  • Hall – p9, first half of race was more fun as I had close by drivers
  • Greg -wrecked out
  • Mike – qualified p4. Eventually cycle to the lead through Green flag stops. I ended up spinning on my own once and lost about eight seconds of track position and fell back to P5. I gradually made my way back up to P2 at that point he was 10 seconds ahead of me. I drove up to within six seconds of the Leader by the end, P2.

Wednesday Open:  

  • Hall – p wrecked in un avoidable  now down from 4000 to 3300 irating
  • Kyle P – P5 started 7th and fell back fast. Fought a loose car until about lap 70 and then the missile came alive and it was just on rails. Worked my way back from mid 20’s to finish a top 5.

Tony R – P shitty race. Had a horrible set was just loose all over. With 25 to go my car wasnt the only thing that was loose. Stomach was a rumbling and just couldnt hold it so pitted and got out of the rig in record speed. That was fun

  • Mike-p13 – super super loose. The first run ended up spinning and running dead last eventually caught a caution, but still struggled on every runs route. The race where I would spin it falls is the last car in the lead loud with some carnage at the end, I ended up getting a few more spots up to pee 13.  the set certainly did not agree with me. 
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p11- ran a totally different set and it was completely stable. Much better. We had only one caution it loud 13 I decided to stay out and try to save a set of tires, but then we had no cautions from that point forward I got shuffled at one point back to 24th. Drove it back up to 11th before the first green flag stop. stayed consistent through the second run and ended up running fourth before I had a pit again with 15 to go for fuel and right side only.  car was really fast with just two tires and I drove it back up to 11 from 21st.  got screwed on the fuel strategy kicking myself for that for sure.  
    • Adam – 
    • Steve – 

Rochette – P6 ran a better set and made sure i went to the bathroom before i raced. Led laps early but thightness settled in before the first pit stop. Made adjustments and was just cruising when a dumbass decided he wanted to turn right across my nose and me in the wall. Little bit of damage hindered me being up front so il settle with a 6th



Official Series

  • Ellis – Chris Maguire hosted Kia Optima at Daytona P2. 
  • 87 cars with the Porsche rough cup at Talladega, wrecked out
  • Carof tomorrow at Talladega – wrecked


SPIKER – Nascar B Open – Las Vegas P18

Daytona Track Content Restructure

Beginning with the 2022 Season 4 build, four track layouts will be removed from the [Legacy] Daytona International Speedway – 2008 package and moved into the paid Daytona International Speedway package. These 2008 layouts include Oval, Road Course, Moto, and Short. As a result the Daytona International Speedway package will combine for a total of nine configs (Oval, Road Course, NASCAR Road, Moto, Short, Oval – 2008, Road Course – 2008, Moto – 2008, Short – 2008).

The Rallycross configs that used to be part of the [Legacy] Daytona International Speedway – 2008 package (Rallycross Short and Rallycross Long) will not be affected by this change and will remain as included free content with an iRacing membership. This package will be renamed to Daytona Rallycross.

iRacing will also be adding multiple pieces of all-new content to its list of included cars and tracks for members in coming builds.

USF2000- Indy Pro 2000 Series Adjustments

With the launch of Season 1, 2023, we will be making some format adjustments to these 2 series. The goal for these format updates is to provide clarity to the North American open wheel ladder while also promoting an increase in participation.

USF2000 will also be switching to the normal every other hour schedule format with the Indy Pro 2000 running opposite hours. This will make it much easier to back to back these races.

The most prominent change will be the alignment of both series schedules moving forward. Both series will run the same tracks on the same weeks mirroring the real world “Support Series” format. We are also adjusting the scheduling guidelines to require 2 ovals and 10 road courses. Our team will be working with the community managers of both series in the coming weeks to form a plan on how the community will vote for schedules. 

Other minor changes will be that both series will be lap based moving forward. We will still target 15 minute races for the USF2000 series while targeting 25 minute races for the Indy Pro 2000 series. USF2000 will continue to use fixed setups while the Indy Pro 2000 will remain an open setup series. 

We will also be announcing an updated naming convention for the series to make it more apparent that they are supporting one another.

  5. What Does It Mean to You to still race as a member in special events? This is my passion its all the free time that I have… When I am in a race I want the same experience as all the other drivers… The pool of drivers has gotten so much larger i have been relegated to a mid pack status….

  • Donnie – P8, Q4
  • Mike – dnf- had a great race actually led. The most laps was leading on the outside with three to go had a guy behind me. That said he was going to stay with me via private message on the back stretch going into three he decided to go low and leave me out, and when he did he got hooked by the guy on the bottom and a wrecked us all. 
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette –P4 hung out with a couple of guys that we just stayed 1-3 whole race tried to make a move on last lap lost a spot
    • Hall – p8,  to few cars could make the low line fast, so every restart was a race to the wall
    • Steve -p21 Started 31st ran in the back most of the race got up to 3rd around lap 86 and tried to avoid a wreck and got doored by my poor decision to split 2 cars and ended up with a black flag by going thru the grass on the front stretch and going thru the pits.  Ended parking it be a lap down and not able to make up any spots so I didnt get any more incident points on the final 4 laps.
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -p20 – Ran top 5 and led some laps, early on we had a great 7 car break away 4 second lead, then after gf stops, 11 second breakaway…eventually cautions started happening and i got involved but little damage – kept working my way up but got completely destroyed on the white and could not finish.
    • Tyler p30
    • Steve p12 – Started 27th went 2 laps down after entering closed pit.  Mike said keep going, got the 2 laps back.  Led the last two laps with a crash with one to go and the caution came out.  Ended up getting wrecked on the white flag lap in a 4 huge crash and my car was so damaged I couldnt make it across the start finish line.

Wednesday Open:  Charlotte

  • Hall – p 17, Top split, only got my spots on survival
  • Ellis – started P 14. Got to p eight by the end of lap one.  eventually I got to p five by lap 13. I barely touch the wall and it killed the car. He would not roll at all head to toe to pit lane.  Eight minutes Required damage came back out with eight laps down about 20th work my way back up to 16th.
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p1 – qualified p4- got to third pretty quick and battled with second all the way to the pitstop. I got by him right before the stop.  meanwhile the leader, who had gapped us, crashed out and wrecked. After pitstops I inherited the lead with a 14 second gap. Was able to maintain the gap until the end of the race. So that’s three NASCAR wins this year Bristol, dirt, Atlanta, and Charlotte Roval…. My 86 career win 

Official Series

Ellis – F2000 Lanier. Was running P8 moving forward. When I got tagged from the inside and spun, with no cautions, I fell back to 12Th. Then a few laps later somebody spot in front of me and came back across the track and collected me and broke off both front corners of the car DNF.

Skip barber at Mount panorama. Bathurst.  Rect in qualify not enough time to even try again. Started P6 eventually got to P two and was within 2 1/2 seconds of the leader when I caught a lap car, and he basically stopped right in front of me, and I drove right through him. Dnf.

SPIKER -.Nascar B Open P7, Super Late’s P9, Street Stock P9

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.
