NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Tally

  • Ellis –   p7 – led the most laps – 23 to go got hooked from behind, i may have gone just a hair high – restarted 20th got to 4th quickly – final run there were lots of crazy moves and i didnt make the right ones….
  • Rochette-Pwrecked just taken out while avoiding a wreck 
  • Hall – P9,  making move for win, guy throws late block and puts me in wall
  • Greg – p wrecked out
  • Sunday Open
    • Adam- p
    • Brian – p 
    • Stephen – p
    • Rochette-P7 led some laps but got trapped on the bottom with lapped car on the bottom while 2 wide and lost the main pack. So stuck with a damaged car pack rest of the race. Only 2 cautions so ended up a lap down happy with a top 10 after being wrecked all week but pissed i couldnt get more out of being stuck.
    • Hall – p4 top split.   Led the 2nd pack.  The top 3 and some of their lap down team mates short pitted and ran faster while off sequence.  When we cycled through, they were 10 seconds ahead.

Groves – p13 – Ran top 5-10 for the majority of the race and led some laps, got taken out with about 10-12 laps to go.  Limped the car across the line still on the lead lap and still gained a little IR

  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p. Wrecked out – i was leading and pitted under yellow and messed up and got eol penalty – never recovered, eventually a 3 car pack we caught the lead pack, i encouraged them just go around them we did but tangled w someone who came up in to our lane and all wrecked out,…The fact that i can always get to the lead at some point is quite satisfying

Race : dover 

  • Wed Fixed 
    • Rochette– P
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 11.  There is a vortex about half a straight in front of my car that makes cars wreck just so they can hit me.  Erg.   Salvaged P11 with engine damage cause still pretty good long run speed. 
    • Ellis – p wrecked out- I got a little damage in the first caution they got it fixed and Marsh my way back up to the front was running for all the outside when I touch the guy on the inside and I got sent to the wall the engine blew up. 
    • Kyle P Pwrecked out
    • Tyler – P 
    • Greg P
    • Adam – 
    • Stephen –
    • Rochette P3 few cautions in the begining then a 125 lap green flag run. Got lapped in 4th. Caution came out from 3rd slamming the wall got lucky dog and gwc. Got another podium 
    • Bobby -p
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.8 – early run made my way up front on long run up to p2, had to pit under caution to grab a fedex at the door, then marched my way all the way back to the lead – lead 13 laps – they guy who eventually won, i ran side by side with him for several laps before he finally got me – then i faded to 3rd where 4th ran into my side going down the front straight i spin no caution bring it home 8th – feels really good to be in the mix for the lead

Official Series

  • A Open
    • Hall – P
    • Ellis – p

Tony R – Pair of P7s at Dover Tuesday just getting a feel for the set

  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall – P1 Two Wins at Monza

League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis – Chris Macguire Hosted
    • 87 cars at Texas-wrecked 
    • 87 cars at tally p3
  • FastTrack League –
    1. David – pwrecked out, caused the big one.  The high line is just not consistent in this car in sim and real life.  High Line only makes it to the front with the perfectly setup run, then if the cars in front don’t abandon the front comes back and the high line gets stuck about 3 car lengths back.  Was pushing Greg hard, missed a bump to the right.  Didn’t know I was that far off, but the replay shows I was.
    2. Bobby -pwrecked out
    3. Greg p wrecked out
    4. Mike – p7- started farther backs in the rash but made it eventually up to my team or we ran 1234 on the bottom for quite some time. Eventual Lee we got some cars in front of us do the non-decisions on going high. At some point we went high and David was pushing Greg and accidentally turned him. The final restart with three to go is hectic but I was able to bring it home P7 from P9. 
    5. Adam –  p
