Safe Driver Dilemma 

Paul Seeley posted a very introspective essay about his iRacing status.  He is not super fast in official races, but is safe and has good car control, so he finises well, although he never wins, so he gets in higher splits than his skill level.  He’s using AI more and more because of the competancy and quality of the racing.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open – Homestead 

  • Mike -.  P wrecked out early. Lap three they reck in front of me. I go to miss it. I get ran over from behind shove down to the inside wall. Five minutes damage after the green flag. I’m running in the back another guy gets wrecked. I can’t slow down in time, and I plow him.  40 minutes required.
  • David – p 4, long run near end got me track position back, then held on for 2 short runs
  • Tony -p22 was just meh 

Sunday Open-Homestead 

  • David – P 10  self corrected into wall on first green run.  Caution comes out right before window is over.  Fix most of damage, save fuel and out stretch others to 10th with wheel damage
  • Tony – P6  dont remember much from this one think it was ok. Did end up finding a groove that i liked hugging that bottom 
  • John – P16. Started in P24 and ran consistent laps. Stayed out of trouble, but the top 3 drivers smoked the field. 

Wednesday Open: Cautionville

  • MikeP 7 – got wrecked with about three minutes. Damage could barely drive it got some repairs done and just kept it on track got up to 24X was one away from the DQ and brought it home P7 I’ll take it.
  • ChrisP5. Raced in the back for most of the race. Had 12x for most of the race and raced safely with 16x. P5 never never felt so good. Broke the 2700iR mark for my personal high. 
  • David – P 14, really getting sick of this crap,  running third, fourth cuts down in front of justin and then wipes me out.
  • Tony – P13 oh this race, i dont think ive ever been and ive been in a ton of absolute shit shows on the sim. 32 cautions 2 ½ hours of just absolute trash. I was everywhere top 5 bottom 5 middle 5 wrecked several times was clinging on to that 1 last x for last 90 or so laps trying to get back on the lead lap which i eventually did on the 2nd gwc i stayed in to least get some much needed points fornthe quest of top 15 in div 3. Im 1 and done with this BS. Would rather listen to David Hall read some more Taylor Swift lyrics under cautions than run that atrocity again
  • John – p 11. My car was good, but the usual Martinsville cautionfest. Thanks to the overwhelming lack of skilled drivers I had 22 X fairly quick and had to be careful to avoid a DQ. Got up to 24X with 30 to go and babied the car from there. 

Thursday Open: Martinsville

  • Mike- P8- top split typical shit show I had 16 incidents before halfway got drive-through and finally got a lucky dog to get back on the lead lap with about 20 to go and work my way back up to finish P8 another great top 10
  • Mackenzie – P2 – Great 1st NIS race back, started 3rd got spun early and ran around 15th for a while, stayed out while leaders pitted and took the lead and lead 79 laps, got screwed on a car coming from the pits and dropped back to 3rd, pitted for fuel and took tires around lap 200 and started 8th, worked my way up to 4th for the GWC and 2nd and 3rd place spun before the line so I took 2nd

Official Series


  • Legends,, 87 cars at Talladega ran top five all day there were several cautions was leading at the end on the white they were three wide the middle lane guy came down and wrecked All P 20. 

Draft Master

John – Saturday P2. Stayed there the whole race and just pushed P1 to the end. We never got passed.

Saturday again. P11. Good result considering I got in top split with over 4k rated drivers. I kept up with lead pack the whole race

Tuesday and Wednesday Trucks. 4 races and they all sucked. The usual “nobody can keep a straight line” races and lapped cars wrecking leaders. My SR took a massive beating

Mackenzie – P9, Started 16th, pretty uneventful race, was probably 6 or 7 wide coming across the finish and got squished into the wall and lost a few positions
