NASCAR iRacing Series

Thursday Fixed

  • Justin – P17 
  • Tony – Pwrecked couldn’t avoid a spinning car

Friday Open -Bristol 

  • Mike -.  P right before halfway 16 incident and six minutes optional damage. Finally on lap for 58. I get dq out completely too many incidents.  
  • Tom-p dq out
  • Rochette P4 avoided stuff stayed clean lap cars blocked me from racing against 2nd and 3rd with 10 to go 
  • Tony – P 22, Started P24 really ran a clean and uneventful race, got to 40 to go and some guy fenced a guy then came down across my nose and the car was dead. Guy apologized. I would be lying if i said i hadn’t done something dumb on here

Sunday Fixed- Kansas

  • Justin – P LAST! I ran a half lap and a guy spun in front of me. I chose the wrong lane. Little damage. Next restart guy spun directly in front of me wouldn’t miss it. Never made it one full lap. Probably the shortest NIS race i have ever had.

Wednesday Open: bristol

  • Mike- P dnf. Lab 150 a huge pileup for five cars were up against the wall. I came around the corner on the high end at full speed didn’t see them at all and plowed right in 50 seconds. Optional in over 10 minutes required I couldn’t even drive it back to the pit.
  • David – P 6.  Even doing my best to stay out of trouble was at 16x on the caution with 20 to go.  There was an even later caution that I barely missed.  But on GWC i wouldn’t have lost positions to lappers at that point as not pitting would be less laps than pitting, so felt safe.  But survived by trying to not over race the car.  Race had cautions but wasn’t horrific like a Martinsville usually is.  Gained a point of safety rating with the 16x
  • Justin – P27, had a fast car just over drove it. Spun out. It  was on me.
  • Chris – p 19. I should have drove around for first 400 laps. Was P8 and got wrecked on lap 150. After 15 min of repairs I finished p19 80 laps down. Passed 11 cars while racing wrecked. 

GregPKilled it

Official Series


  • Hosted Chris maguire Supercars at Michigan. We have the pit for fuel when we did nobody could get fuel. Everyone was stuck in the pitch and the pit crews would not feel the car.  
  • Draft Meister trucks at Daytona. Backed out and chickened out when I found out it was open set. 
  • FIAF4  racing regionally at lime rock Park- wrecked out twice in a row. The second race I did the fast repair after towing and drove from 23rd back up to 13.
  • Next race got up to around ninth before I wrecked out on lot 14 on my own had to tow.
