NASCAR iRacing Series

Thursday Fixed- Michigan

Kyle P. P8. Started 34 at the very back and just ran to the front in the first 30 laps. Got as high as P2 but fell off on restarts and just couldn’t get that top 5.

Friday Open – Michigan

  • Mike -.  Pwrecked out. Lap 69 was running about 15. They wreck in front of me I can’t miss it knocked right front off the car.
  •  Justin –  p
  • David – p wrecked, was runnin well, but on late run, i have to check up, then the guy who gets inside me stays in third lane instead of going to 2nd lane, I tried to run the outline which was the 3rd lane and we collided.
  • Kyle P. P10 Started 3rd but just couldn’t keep it out of the back bumpers of other cars. I was pushing hard to draft as much as possible but just caused problems for myself and ended up with 10x but still walked away with a top 10 finish of P10.

Saturday Fixed Michigan

Sunday Open- Michigan

  • Tom D – P5. Started 20th. Was able to work my way past the few crahses.  Was able to miss getting damaged.  I’ll take a top 5
  • Hall – p 18 topsplit
  • Kyle P. P3 Started P4 and just couldn’t fire off good on the start and fell back to 25th. Slowly made my march to the front. After green flag stops I pushed it to Lap 50 and pitted with the mindset that we would go green and I would have just enough to finish the race. Cycled out P21 and just started to gain positions, avoiding wrecks. Got to the final restart with 7 to go and I restarted P3. Battled with a car that was much faster but was also extremely reckless for P3. Once he used up his tires in the first 5 laps of the restart. I was able to drive past him and hold off a Podium finish of P3.

Wednesday Open: Indy Road

  • Mike- p 10. Started 18th got turned around sideways and turned one lap one fell back quite a ways, but was able to recover quite nicely.
  • David – p. 
  • KyleP P-20 Bring back the Oval. Started P23 and took advantage of a Lap 1 Turn one wreck and gained a ton of spots. But in typical fashion I was super inconsistent with these bricks I mean cup cars. Couldn’t find the right braking points and seemed to overshoot turn 1 a ton. Fell back as far as P25 and slowly gained a handful of spots. Think I am one and done here at Indy this week. 
  • Justin – pI forgot to log out. I was practicing earlier. I’m going to wait until I get better before i do an NiS. I still suck. Ha
  • Tony – p indy road is
  • Chris – P 10. Finished my first NiS road course. Kept the car on the track for a top 10. 
  • Tom – P5 – Started 10th.  Was able to get myself to racing for the top 5.  Came out 10th after pitting.   Was able to pass 5th place on the last lap to gain another top 5.  A good points day

Thursday Open: indy

  • Mike – p….. winner winner chicken dinner. Start at eights got to six by the end of lap one before pitstop started got up to P3 eventually cycle to the lead and kept it for the rest of the race when I pitted for fuel I had a 53 second lead when I came out after the pitstop I had a nine second lead the guy and second was much faster and caught me over the remaining labs and it was as close as 1.5 seconds behind when he had some issue and I was able to move on and win the race and lead the most Laps. My 95th career win.  My fifth NIS win this year.  My first at this track.
