NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open – Atlanta

  • Mike .  P 19- just no luck with missing the racks and I ran out of incident points with about five to go and how to do a pass through penalty.
  •  Justin –  p4

Sunday Open

    • Tom D – p3
    • Justin- p2.

Sunday Fixed 

Wednesday Open: New Hampshire

    • Mike- p P 18 after a drive through penalty near the end after spinning on my own and getting five minutes damage
  • David – p Disconnect, was running 24th as car 32, so mediocre speed.  Never lost TS when I got dropped
  • Kyle- P3 Car 24 started P5 and just held myself in the top 5, but got as high as 2nd on 2 different occasions. Pitted off sequence to try and gain a grip advantage. Worked my way back from 11th after pitting. Had a sniff at the lead on the 2nd GWC when the leader drove in too deep into turn one, but he was able to throttle out of the corner and keep the lead. Had one small swipe during a wreck around midway, that gave me my only 4x of the night and after surviving 22 cautions and 88 caution laps to come home with a P3 and only a 4x is the next best thing. A podium is a win in my book.
  • Justin – p33 wrecked out rage quit had to leave seen cars wreck checked up and the guy spinning out didnt hold his brakes. Junked my car  
  • Chris – P13. Race was filled with cautions and sloppy racing. Played the survival approach to finish 13th.

Thursday Open  

  • David – p21, top split, more of the same crap, caught up in someones mess on lap 17.  Spend all race down a lap or two including getting dumped while in the lucky dog position by a divebomber.  Got lap back with 7 to go and gained 4 spots

Official Series


  • Fiat f4 at Watkins glen start a 12 foot actually went off track on lap 4 and wrecked hard.

A Open

Kyle –  P12 Used this race on Tuesday to shake down the setup and get a feel for the track and the grip level. Race was going well, holding a top 5 for the majority of the race. Car felt strong and planted but other drivers weren’t so planted and kinda ruined my race, giving me 3 minutes of damage and clocking my wheel far left. Limped it home to a P12.
