NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open – 

  • Mike -.  P kind of messed up during green flag stops by pitting too late and losing the draft. Luckily, I caught a caution and was able to recover got to the lead with six to go. Was leading the second Greenway checker  made some bad news.  Started third for the final restart and made some bad news and fell to  eight.
  • David – p dnf, running in front, bad bump on inside lane took me out to loose track position, then got caught up in 2 other wrecks.  Engin blew coming to the green.
  • Rochette P wrecked… just couldnt avoid getting wrecked 

Sunday Open- 

  • Tom D – P 8
  • Justin- p2 start 21st didnt really keep it clean not really my fault had 12x with no damage. Alot of ghost x’s. Its helps to have a teammate in your split. There was a couple of other teammates there were locked together and pretty much controlled the race.
  • Tony – p wrecked again. Felt like the yoodler climbing up that hill waiting for the right price and just toppling over 
  • Kyle P. P17 Started P1 and kept it up near the front all race led 15 laps and had the lead on all 3 GWC and was in major fuel saving mode and went 54 laps on a tank of fuel only to run out halfway down the Back stretch on the final lap. Coasted home to a P17

Sunday Fixed

  • Justin  P p2 start 21st didn’t really keep it clean not really my fault had 12x with no damage. A Lot of ghost x’s. It helps to have a teammate in your split. There were a couple of other teammates there who were locked together and pretty much controlled the race.

Wednesday Open: Darlington

  • Mike- p 16. We basically had 30 laugh runs all night. I ran an average of fifth Place most of the night as high as third.  But at the end of the race, a 57 lap run I faded after about 30 really hard from fifth all the way back to 16th I suck.
  • David – p. P15 with damaged steering from lap 90 when out of control car flew into my left rear, lot of carnage allowed me to creep back up to 15th
  • Justin – p, dont know flat out got fucking dumped. In my opinion I was probably top 5 speed at least. Apparently I need to learn how to protest. Luckily i was the 28 car so i didn’t hurt the rating to bad
  • Tony – P7 wasn’t feeling good about this 1 but after missing a few good wrecks ended up having a long run car. Even led some GF laps but should’ve pitted alittle sooner. Race went over 70 GF laps at the end. Best ive ran at Darlington in about 3 years
  • Greg -P15 Was racing for P4 going into turn 3 on last lap and exited turn 4 P15

Thursday Open: 

  • Mike – p dnf- Rose restarting third on laugh, 60 and the guy behind me floated from the bottom all the way to the top going into one and wiped out the guy next to me who wiped us all out eight minutes required.
