NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Gateway

  • Ellis –   p6 – finally a good race – was running third most of the night – as high as second. One of the final restarts i came up through the gears drifted a hair to the right and hit the guy next to me causing a big wreck. Was back as far as 14th and damaged but enough other attrition got me to 7th – we had a natural gwc, then 4 gwc’s yes 4 – then once it was over checker it continued to say pacing so i kept doing laps and it gave me one more spot – 
  • Hall – P22. tough top split.  Got early damage avoiding the wreck but found the inside wall.  But I was really mostly racing around the guys I usually race.
  • Sunday Open

Rochette-Pself walled first time racing gateway in years just couldn’t find a groove. Gassed it alittle too much out of T2 with 16 to go destroyed the car. Flat tracks hate me

Race : Sonoma

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. Dumped by a leader, same guy turned me last week.  Apology or not, he’s on the list
  • Thurs Open  
    • David – p wrecked my self out

Fri open: Sonoma

  • Hall – P24, slow, but survived finally
  • Greg – P4 Uneventful Race
  • Tony – p19 wrecked top of the hill lap 1 lost ton of time and just couldnt gain any spots. On the plus side that was my only off track in the winey sandy hills of Lame-noma

Official Series

League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League –
