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.
