Leigh Overton asked why they were unable to spot or crew for their team during the 24.
Staffer Jason Bryfrogle responded…
I can see that you can join a team in a practice session that started after the 12:00 UTC session launched. But you are not in the list of people who can join that same team in the 12:00 UTC session. The only reason there wouldn’t be an entry in that particular table is if you were not a member of the team at the time the team was registered for the 12:00 UTC session. If a team invitation or application is accepted after the team is registered, they do not get added to the list of people who can join the team in the session.

NASCAR iRacing Series
Thursday open –
- Mike- P
- Justin- Winter Nis Winter Series update the fixed series i placed p6 and P26 then the open series i had a p9 and p4, just a steady week. The open race I placed 9th in I set the fastest lap time of the race, never done that before in any official race and there were some studs in that race too. My Open series points battle im losing by 58 points and fixed series im leading by 20 points. Side note without drop weeks in both series I would be leading more than 80 points in each series. I Hate drop weeks. Lol. Another side note: I had a family emergency and I’m stuck in Chicago starting tomorrow so I don’t know if I will be able to make all my starts. I’m not going to use it as an excuse though. I will keep grinding. Sorry for the paragraph mike
- Team Real Fun – P7
- Team Fun P14
- Team Fun 2 p43
- FIAF4 fixed at spa. Started at 16th got wrecked out real hard and lap one and a huge incident.
- Second attempt started dead last 22nd. God is high as P6 in a great race before finally getting wrecked DNF.
- Chris McGuire hosted old IndyCar at Michigan
Draftmaster P11, P17, and P22. People wreck and I get caught up in it every time. Doesn’t matter whether I’m in front or back. Never fails.
John P16. Car was terrible in turns 1 and 2 initially. Made some pit adjustments and stayed with the leaders the last 30 laps. Problem is I was a lap down. Was the lucky dog but did not get the caution
League / Hosted Races
Winter Series League –
- Brad – p 18
- Mike- p started dead last finish P 16. Was planning on a one stop strategy, but a caution came out. We could make it from there on fuel. Next run ran it until the tire gave out had to put under green but then a caution came out, was able to take the wave around and get a lap back and threw attrition and what not worked my way up
- David – p5 . Good long run speed but spent most of the race 1 lap down after first long run. Was p6 in lucky dog spot, late caution comes out puts me on lead lap, but cost me the lucky dog prize, finished p5, best finish for the year.
