Pocono Update

Listener Craig Ream gives the Lounge some great feedback about the infield courses at Pocono.

Hi Gents,

Just to lend input on your mention about the Pocono infield courses.  While they “could” be used for go carts but they are most often used for HPDE and drift events.     Some club level racing is also booked there. (example spec Miata’s)

The legacy Pocono config actually has a few of the infield courses but they are now dated and have changed slightly.

Wednesday Open: Vegas

  • MikeP19 – we had green flag stop so I had ran my tires off I was running 20th Short pitted just a little got up to 13 but made mistakes and fell back again. Was hoping for a caution near the end and we got it went hard trying to get to the top 10, but ended up killing the wall and having wheel damage limped home P 19

MikeP card number 22 and top split. Basically top 10 got as high as third but around lap 70 I got clipped by somebody sent to the wall wheel damage one and a half minutes, but no caution came out rolled around dead last on the lead lap until green flags stop started decided to stay out as long as I could ensure enough the caution flu, as I had about five laps of fuel, and I was P13 next. Got involved with two lab, cars wrecking, and another two minute damage with 20 to go. Did a restart with 11 to go a huge stack up and I turned the guy in front of me and get passing on the inside penalty.
