NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: North Wilkesboro

  • Mike- p. Got involved in the first caution, and somehow ended up with 8x. Second caution I absolutely got ran over from behind the dump ed. The third portion I spun out on my own, racing to hard for the lucky dog. Stayed out of trouble for a while until the seventh caution. When I was completely run over from behind fighting for the lucky dog I was dumped. Route 95 I finally get to Lucky dog.  Halfway. Bob 133 a big wreck in front of me and I’ve Hialeah. I can’t miss it and I hate the incident limit. I have to do a pass through penalty. Ended up P 13 with 22x

Official Series

  • Ellis- in the pro F2008 Road Atlanta qualify 15 out of 16. Got to 10th by the end of lap one.  Had a great race and got to P6.  
  • F 2000 at Rd., Atlanta qualified fourth of 17. P2!!
  • In the pro 2000 at Rd., Atlanta qualify fourth of nine. P4!
  • Indy pro at Phoenix start at 18th at a 24 finished P9. Gotten one incident where a guy was getting freight trained. I was the third in line when I went by. He tried to pinch me and we banged wheels and he wrecked. He was not happy with me but I stayed out of trouble and brought it home moving forward most of the time I only got passed on track twice. I was usually the one making the passes.  
  • F 2000 at Phoenix was running in the top seven and I was inside a guy who cut down on me in Spun us both out 
  • In the pro at Phoenix was running around 14th out of 18 lot 14. They wreck in front of me. I barely nicked it meatball with 15 minutes damage.
  • F 2000 started tenth and finish third.


League / Hosted Races

  • Hosted – 
    • Ellis-old INDYCAR at old Michigan. Finished P 16 Tony Rochette got P7.
  • Hosted — super cars at Texas. Start at 21st finished seventh.

  • DW 12 at Michigan. 
  • Winter league- homestead 
    • Mike -p  22- caution came out after green flag stops. I was one away from the lucky dog, so I was trapped a lap down. Retard to keep the lucky dog for a while but eventually lost it I suck.
    • David – P 9, the coin flip split decision on a middle caution fell in my favor, + long run speed and ability to control a loose set paid off.  Though almost didn’t run, been sick all week with a non covid non flu virus.  Didn’t feel like getting back up, but did.  Felt fever break again right the middle of the race.
  • OBRL Cup
    • Brian -Indy P20 Touched the wall on both Q laps, started in the rear.  Had a crappy race.  Was involved in a couple of incidents, but really liked the cup car at Indy Oval.
