More on Oswego

Listener John Zackery gave us some more info on Oswego Speedway after our last conversation

Hi Mike I thought I would give you some more info on Oswego speedway. Yes it is known for the super modifieds but they also run the Whelen modifieds once a year as well as the big block and small block dirt modifieds. They put clay down in September for the big block modifieds biggest race of the year. Super Dirt Week. So the track would be used for more then just the super modifieds. It’s crazy that they wouldn’t want it scanned. Sad.

Wifi Flag Light

FastTrack Sim Racing

Did you know: SIMRacingApps has built-in flag lights that work via wi-fi? Well, now ya know.

This video shows just the test mode.

All you need is a LIFX bulb or led strips from lifx. You cannot use another name brand.

Once you have the light working from your phone app, all you need is to copy the “token” from lifx. Then paste that token into the simracingapps settings. It’s that simple.

Tested it out last night, there was no lag with it instantly turning colors. What bothered me was, the green stayed on the whole time while under green flag conditions. I like racing in the dark, so I contacted simracingapps, they showed me how to only have the green on for a short period.

The Oswego Story

Listener Robby Swan sent in:

I have the inside scoop on the Oswego Speedway / iRacing situation. I know this is long but it’s worth reading I promise. I’m a long time iracer and have lived in oswego all my life. So when I heard what Dale jr said about oswego not understanding what iracing was, it was heart breaking and I had to get answers. I reached out to a friend of mine who is an avid iracer and multi time and multi division track champion at Oswego. I consider him a reliable source, because he’s raced at oswego for 7+ years and knows the owners. He said that when he spoke to the owners they said “we know what iracing is, when iRacing asked to scan the track, we asked them to also scan in the Big Block Super modified. They didn’t seem interested”. As a life long fan of Oswego speedway, I get where they’re coming from. The Super modified is what defines Oswego Speedway. It’s the very reason the track caught Dale jrs attention. To clarify to you guys what a super modified is. A Super is a 900-1000+ hp short track asphalt car, it has to have a certain size tire and not exceed a certain wheel base. Other then that, there’s not many rules other then safety stuff. So these cars go around oswego which is a 5/8 mile bumpy low banked oval track hitting speeds of 150+mph. They’re the only short track asphalt car faster then a sprint car. It’s a spectacle. So im sure the Oswego speedway feels that only half of what it offers would be on display if they only added the track. Now as a long time fan of iRacing, I completely understand why they wouldn’t be interested in adding the car. It would take a lot of resources, time, and money to add the car and for what benefit? To appease a small group of fans? I get it. iRacing is looking at the participation in Asphalt Sprints and Silver crown and it’s bleek. The super would almost certainly be an unused car outside of leagues. Now Dale said “Oswego seems to not know what iracing is”. I am 100% not calling Dale jr a liar, what I’m speculating, is that’s just what iRacing told Dale Jr? Did iRacing avoid giving the real reason why it didn’t work out with Oswego because they knew Dale would be all for the idea of adding the Super modified? We know he absolutely loves them, he had Bentley Warren an Oswego speedway legend as a guest on his podcast and TV show lost speedways. He always talks very highly of Oswego and guys that race these “crazy super modifieds”. Here’s another thing, I know that the owners of the Oswego speedway know what iRacing is, how? Well I helped a neighboring town government launch the first municipal iracing league(they actually have a highschool sim racing room now, it’s cool.if you want to know more about that I can get in discord with someone). I know for a fact that the head of the parks and recreation dept in Fulton spoke with the speedway about iracing and what we were doing in hopes to get sponsorship. I know it’s just speculation, but it’s just very interesting there’s contradicting stories.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Race : Nashville

  • Wed Open:
  • Ellis – p wrecked out – Ran top 5 all day, led some laps – with 5 to go on a restart someone took us 3 wide and floated up and wiped us all out, 16 minutes required
  • Stephen – Wrecked Out early
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p8 – Opportunities squandered – ran top 5 all day led the most laps, after green flag stops i had a 5.5 second lead on the pack, and enough gas to make it. Caution ruined that. When i stopped i somehow got unsafe pit exit – this ruined my race and i could not regain the lost track position.
    • David – p wrecked, screw everybody


Official Series

  • Ellis – 
  • Skippys at Okayama – started p4 – got to p2 then wasn’t paying attention and downshifted instead of upshifted blew the motor.
  • Started p4 eventually took the lead in a spirited battle with a car w equal speed – super fun stuff – i eventually spun it trying too hard to gap him and ended up p6
  • Started p2 – got to the lead but spun it cause i suck, fell to p3 but got back to p2 – i finally have actual speed…
  • Daytona moto. Started P8 finished P8.


  • SPIKER
    • Late Model Fixed, Southern National, P6 blew the motor on the green flag shifting from 3rd to 2nd.  1st time it happened.  Hope it’s not a hardware issue.

Late Model Open, Southern National, P7, my set was terrible.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Gateway

  • Ellis –   p6 – finally a good race – was running third most of the night – as high as second. One of the final restarts i came up through the gears drifted a hair to the right and hit the guy next to me causing a big wreck. Was back as far as 14th and damaged but enough other attrition got me to 7th – we had a natural gwc, then 4 gwc’s yes 4 – then once it was over checker it continued to say pacing so i kept doing laps and it gave me one more spot – 
  • Hall – P22. tough top split.  Got early damage avoiding the wreck but found the inside wall.  But I was really mostly racing around the guys I usually race.
  • Sunday Open

Rochette-Pself walled first time racing gateway in years just couldn’t find a groove. Gassed it alittle too much out of T2 with 16 to go destroyed the car. Flat tracks hate me

  • Hall – P24, slow, but survived finally
  • Greg – P4 Uneventful Race

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Charlotte

  • Ellis –   pwrecked out – very uncomfortable loose in was slow out there for sure – made it to lap 83 before i killed it putting it in the wall hard – 
  • Rochette-Pwrecked.  Tried to stay away from the crap but it hit the fan. First had a spinner come back up on the track from just loosing it on the back and knocked some revs outta me. Than just before half way a car went into the infield on the stretch  and the dumbass lapper in front of me slams on his brakes and i knock the hell out of him. Im done 
  • Hall – P 9.  Frustrating race, but stuck it out.  Trapped a lap down early because a car wouldn’t catch up to the pack and we couldn’t get wave around after a cation in the middle of green flag stops.  Got damage from a lead lap car that decided to go Ryan Newman mode on cars racing for the lucky dog.  Forgot to change my wheel setting so ran the whole race with to high a steering ratio.  But did finally get back on lead lap and survived for 9th

Groves – P wrecked

Hall – p wrecked out by unavoidable

Race : Gateway

  • Wed Open:
  • Hall –p. 19, purely survival.  Tough Top Split was car 37.  Got damage on 2nd lap as a driver discovered on green his FFB was gone.  Caught in a 2nd wreck and just limped around on back of tail lap, but was far enough from the rest of the wrecks.
  • Ellis – p wrecked out – had a good race going running about 10th to 12th – around half way i got 12 x within 20 laps from people running me over from behind in the corner. After that I spun off on my own late exit down the the inner wall and killed the car 4 minutes optional. Stayed on lead lap and couldnt really repair due to people cant pace. Maybe 20 laps later the engine blows.
  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p. 11 – Was running good top ten as high as second, but someone spun up front and i tboned in for five and half min damage – soldiered on to be last on lead lap

  • Wrecked out four different races in a row
  • Started 14th finish P6.

    2. Greg pDisappointed in the setup and tired of getting run over in this league by A-Holes
    3. Mike – p21- was pretty uncomfortable around the top letting everybody go wasn’t racing anyone get the car cleaned till roughly halfway and then started hitting the wall was barely hanging onto it by the end. Glad to get a finish at Charlotte this week that is an accomplishment for me.

SCCA Runoffs Coming to iRacing in October 2022

iRacing and the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) are pleased to announce the addition of the SCCA Runoffs to iRacing’s Special Events schedule for the first time in 2022. Utilizing the Super Session model, drivers will have the opportunity to qualify for the iRacing SCCA Runoffs over the week of October 17-21, 2022, before the top qualifiers strap in over the course of a marathon eight-hour broadcast day on Saturday, October 22.

“The SCCA Runoffs are one of the most prestigious events in American road racing, and we’re excited to officially add them to the iRacing special event schedule in 2022,” said Kevin Bobbitt, Director of Marketing at iRacing. “Giving our racers another opportunity to compete in top-level virtual road racing, while offering them a completely different slate of cars from the norm to race with, is an incredible proposition, and we can’t wait to see who takes the victory across our largest special event vehicle lineup ever!

As in the real world, the iRacing SCCA Runoffs will be held at VIRginia International Raceway, and the eight competing classes will similarly be modeled after vehicles that take part in the Runoffs every year. Sessions in each class will be held once every four hours from Monday-Friday, with all drivers holding a D class road license or above eligible to race and earn their way into the Super Sessions. All races will be 35 minutes in length.

The eight competing classes, and their full schedule of Super Sessions coming on Saturday, October 22, are as follows. All Super Sessions will be broadcast in succession on iRacing social media channels:

image.png

The real-world SCCA Runoffs return to VIRginia International Raceway for the first time in three years on September 24-October 2, 2022, and will return there in 2023 as well. The history of the event dates back nearly six decades, and serves as the SCCA’s national championship weekend for the top amateur road racers in America.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Tally

  • Ellis –   p7 – led the most laps – 23 to go got hooked from behind, i may have gone just a hair high – restarted 20th got to 4th quickly – final run there were lots of crazy moves and i didnt make the right ones….
  • Rochette-Pwrecked just taken out while avoiding a wreck 
  • Hall – P9,  making move for win, guy throws late block and puts me in wall
  • Greg – p wrecked out
  • Sunday Open
    • Adam- p
    • Brian – p 
    • Stephen – p
    • Rochette-P7 led some laps but got trapped on the bottom with lapped car on the bottom while 2 wide and lost the main pack. So stuck with a damaged car pack rest of the race. Only 2 cautions so ended up a lap down happy with a top 10 after being wrecked all week but pissed i couldnt get more out of being stuck.
    • Hall – p4 top split.   Led the 2nd pack.  The top 3 and some of their lap down team mates short pitted and ran faster while off sequence.  When we cycled through, they were 10 seconds ahead.

Groves – p13 – Ran top 5-10 for the majority of the race and led some laps, got taken out with about 10-12 laps to go.  Limped the car across the line still on the lead lap and still gained a little IR

  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p. Wrecked out – i was leading and pitted under yellow and messed up and got eol penalty – never recovered, eventually a 3 car pack we caught the lead pack, i encouraged them just go around them we did but tangled w someone who came up in to our lane and all wrecked out,…The fact that i can always get to the lead at some point is quite satisfying

Race : dover 

  • Wed Fixed 
    • Rochette– P
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 11.  There is a vortex about half a straight in front of my car that makes cars wreck just so they can hit me.  Erg.   Salvaged P11 with engine damage cause still pretty good long run speed. 
    • Ellis – p wrecked out- I got a little damage in the first caution they got it fixed and Marsh my way back up to the front was running for all the outside when I touch the guy on the inside and I got sent to the wall the engine blew up. 
    • Kyle P Pwrecked out
    • Tyler – P 
    • Greg P
    • Adam – 
    • Stephen –
    • Rochette P3 few cautions in the begining then a 125 lap green flag run. Got lapped in 4th. Caution came out from 3rd slamming the wall got lucky dog and gwc. Got another podium 
    • Bobby -p
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.8 – early run made my way up front on long run up to p2, had to pit under caution to grab a fedex at the door, then marched my way all the way back to the lead – lead 13 laps – they guy who eventually won, i ran side by side with him for several laps before he finally got me – then i faded to 3rd where 4th ran into my side going down the front straight i spin no caution bring it home 8th – feels really good to be in the mix for the lead


Official Series

  • A Open
    • Hall – P
    • Ellis – p

Tony R – Pair of P7s at Dover Tuesday just getting a feel for the set

  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall – P1 Two Wins at Monza




League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis – Chris Macguire Hosted
    • 87 cars at Texas-wrecked 
    • 87 cars at tally p3
  • FastTrack League –
    1. David – pwrecked out, caused the big one.  The high line is just not consistent in this car in sim and real life.  High Line only makes it to the front with the perfectly setup run, then if the cars in front don’t abandon the front comes back and the high line gets stuck about 3 car lengths back.  Was pushing Greg hard, missed a bump to the right.  Didn’t know I was that far off, but the replay shows I was.
    2. Bobby -pwrecked out
    3. Greg p wrecked out
    4. Mike – p7- started farther backs in the rash but made it eventually up to my team or we ran 1234 on the bottom for quite some time. Eventual Lee we got some cars in front of us do the non-decisions on going high. At some point we went high and David was pushing Greg and accidentally turned him. The final restart with three to go is hectic but I was able to bring it home P7 from P9. 
    5. Adam –  p

Nascar/ Motorsports Games Split?

Multiple sources have told SGO that NASCAR is actively looking for ways to get out of its current agreement with Motorsport Games. The sources say that NASCAR would like to bring its license to a different publisher and developer within the next couple of years.

“NASCAR isn’t happy,” the source said. “There’s a reason they don’t even promote their own game on any broadcasts. It’s because they don’t want to be associated with a game as broken as what NASCAR 21 is.”

2021 was not a bright year for Motorsport Games, which belongs to the wider Motorsport Network media empire that includes Motor1 and Motorsport.com. The gaming division lost $33.7 million and admitted in its latest financial report two weeks ago that it didn’t “believe the existing cash on hand will be sufficient to fund its operations for at least the next 12 months.”

This should and will concern the likes of IndyCar and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest that operates the 24 Hours of Le Mans, both of which recently minted collaborations with Motorsport Games. The prospective IndyCar game is targeting a 2023 release, as is the Le Mans title. All of these games are the first iterations of annual franchises too, which means it’ll be a tall effort to get them out the door in a short amount of time and in polished form, as NASCAR 21 has illustrated.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Bristol

  • Ellis –   p1 – I was probably lucky it was an ex teammate behind me that he has some trustworthiness thanks to Carlos Fonseca for racing me clean but also making me earn it. He could’ve plowed me but he didn’t. When i entered the lobby I immediately knew I would be fighting him for the win. He is super super quick and oval irating in the 4000’s… The restart before the last when is when i took the lead with some great crossover / slide job moves…
    • First win of the year, 79th career win.Stats calling this an oval win but i had only one other dirt oval win in 2020, dirt street stock at lanier dirt. So I am going to call this my second oval dirt win…Really proud I could back up my good runs earlier in the week. Not in 1 million years did I think my first win this year would be Bristol dirt
  • Rochette-P8 first time ever tied for the pole. Was stuck in 4th most of the race til we actually had more than a 5 lap run. 3rd place ran out of talent and hit the wall and into me give me a 20 second required made it to the end a lap down super frustrated.
  • Hall – P.Unavoidable Meat ball, same wreck got me and Adam

Groves – P? – I had a gymnastics finish, couldn’t stick the landing so I had to go home

  • Sunday Open

Hall – p14  Caution fest top split, spent most of the race tryin to survive

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p5 – Ran as high as P2 before getting hit from behind. Go back to 21st but could quickly make my way forward. Lots of lake carnage I gained a bunch of spots back. 

Race : Tally

  • Wed Fixed 
    • Rochette– P
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 7.  GWC at end, got hit in the previous caution, full HP but toe damage.  A guy tried to push me to lead on white, but the car was to hurt, got a top 10 in the books though, we’ll see if we can improve
    • Ellis – pwrecked out- Around lap 50 I’m running about seventh the guy behind me dives to the inside and clips me as I went just a hair high and he thought he could take it but I was there. 
    • Kyle P P8 I’ll take the top 10 finish but could we please learn to race sensibly. I got caught up in 3 wrecks that had nothing to do with me but people were just diving up and down lanes and basically driving with blinders on and no spotters. Rant over!
    • Tyler – P 1 First ever win in a NIS race.  Thanks Mike for the spotting to the win!

Rochette P DNF caught in a spinning wreck in front 31 minutes required

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – pwrecked out – Led the most laps and on last restart purposely went high to be leading in outside lane – got pushed to the front and then the guy pushing took this bumper and rubbed me from right side swiping left and it immediately hooked me hard right into the wall. 10 minutes damage.
    • Bobby – 
    • Adam – 
    • Steve – 

Rochette P wrecked by leaders going 3 wide into turn 1 on lap 6. Got my yearly Dega pole was pushed out of the leader by a dumbass *beeeeeeeeeeeeep* (Iberian) than while just hanging out they went 3 wide for the lead middle car lost and fell back and wrecked about ½ the field

    • Ellis – p3 – Led 20 laps but didnt make the right moves near the end to get me in the right spot, none the less a good finish and start for the week (tues night)
    • Tony R – P5 in A open got checked up on the outside on white
      • “Sigh” another P5 was leader til  front when my pusher stopped pushing
  • B Fixed 

Rochette P1 –what a way to start Dega week. First ever B class win. Made my move on the outside on the white

  • C Fixed
    • Tyler – P3 in the trucks. Almost had a chicken dinner.


League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis – Chris Macguire Hosted
  • Pro 4s at Bristol dirt – p2
  • FastTrack League –
      1. David – p 8  I was slow, except for super long runs.  That plus pit strategy and survival gave me a better finish than the car was really good for .  And though it wasn’t Mike this time, my first strategy instinct is right more than not, and I didn’t let a team mate talk me out of my choice about a wave around.
      2. Greg p – pwrecked
      3. Mike – phad spun down and hit the wall so pitted on first caution for damage – made sure to uncheck my tires – yet it still gave me tires – so then i ended up take a wave by on a caution then never caught another. Once out of fuel, i got some 40 second pit penalty followed by another speeding penalty. I parked it out of frustration.

Nurburgring Study Guide

Listener Rowland Wallbank from North Wales lets us know how to use the Crew Chief App to record voice commands you can play back rally style to help learn the track.

Folks,
I enjoy listening to your Podcast (usually whilst doing the dishes!) here in North Wales.
I keep hearing members of your team saying how difficult learning the Nurburgring is.
I thought the same until I discovered that the Crew Chief app has a rally style Pace notes ability.
Basically you map buttons to record, start and stop.
You drive around the course and record yourself saying “slow slow slow” or “right turn ahead, tightens” anything you like.
Your recording is mapped to a distance around the track.  So…when you leave the pit you start the replay and when you hit that marker around the track you hear yourself say “slow slow slow” etc.  I learnt it in a couple of days doing it this way.  It’s fantastic.  You can adjust the distance to trigger the voice recordings if you want them to come later or earlier.
Cheers,
And please give a shout out to the Lotus 49 and the Huskinveld GT communities.
And Team Trained Monkey Racing…More Monkey than Alien.
Regards,
Rowly (Row as in your boat, not argue with your missus😉)

Listener Rig Review

Listener Heath Ropp sent in to the Lounge his new Racing Cockpits 80/20 rig with Fanatec DD1 wheelbase and Heusinkveld Sprint pedals

Hello my dudes over at iRacers Lounge.  First let me start by saying thank you for putting out my favorite podcast each week and putting so much time into making it a great show.
I just upgraded my rig from a GT Omega ART with a Fanatec Club Sport 2.5 and V3 pedals to a proper 8020 rig from racingcockpits.com, Fanatec DD1 and Heusinkveld Sprints.
I went with the Pro rig and I must say I’m truly impressed with how solid it is.  I started out by calling Racing Cockpits and spoke with the owner Eric.  He got me everything I needed at a great price and fast shipping.  I had a few specific requests and called him a couple of times and he always answered the phone even in the evening.  It’s nice to be able to have that kind of service from right here in the good ol’ USA.  The rig was easy to put together and the directions were very well written.  While putting the rig together I realized I was missing the riser/leg mounts and notified Eric.  He immediately sent them over night to me which I greatly appreciated.  The seat is the NRG Prism and is super comfortable.  I have the Heusinkvelt Sprints mounted to the pedal plate and there is absolutely no flex.  I also got the side mounts for the DD1 and they are rock solid.  They also included a bunch of extra bolts and t-nuts was is awesome because I have already added some additional pieces.  Overall I’m impressed with the rig and with RacingCockpits.com.
I also just got the Butt Kicker Plus a few days ago and I’m loving it.  A few quick notes are that the volume knob was not attached tightly to the post and fell off when I took it out of the box and is still a little loose.  It sounds like Will Ford from Boosted Media also had this issue. I also used the bolt holes to attach it to my sim rig instead of the clamp, but I had to drill out the holes just a bit to use the standard M8 bolts and t-nuts used on most 8020 sim rigs. After about 3 hours of testing and tuning with the new Haptic Connect software, I determined that the LFE setting in iRacing worked the best, so I ended up not using the Haptic Connect software.  Hopefully they will continue to make that better.  This is the first Butt Kicker/transducer I’ve ever owned and I must say it is pretty cool and I don’t think I will ever race without one again.
I attached pics of my rig and yes that is a NES with the classic game Days of Thunder playing!  I still have all my old racing games (hence the pictures taped to the wall) I grew up playing and I must say Indy Heat is my favorite.
Again thanks to your team for your outstanding podcast.
Sincerely,
Heath Ropp #77

Mike Has Wind!

Our own Mike Ellis recounts his experience building his home made wind simulation unit.

8496AA78-773F-4036-8D14-2EFC71D870A0.jpeg

FEA9386C-6F7F-44C0-B850-5B613B0C56DC.jpeg

So I got it all mounted and tried it and really couldn’t feel any wind coming out of it even though the fans were turning I couldn’t quite figure out what was going on. Eventually I found some confetti and taped it to the opening of the hose turn the fans on all the way.

And the confetti got sucked into the fan I installed the fans backwards!

So I’ve created the first Vacuum Sim. Or maybe we call it the Sim Vacuum.

So tonight I switch them around and it’s up and working and blowing pretty great.

Some lessons learned, the SIM hub software now has wind Sim support built right in so you don’t need to do the workarounds that were stated in the video.

It kind a looks like the hoses are in an awkward position but they are out of my visual while driving. Not sure if I’m gonna keep them here or move them somewhere else, but done for now.

I did receive my fanatec hub a month early. I’m still awaiting the cube controls wheel to ship…

Caution fest so restarts we super important. Got Doored with about 50 to go as the chain reaction had me in the middle sitting like a duck but survived. Caution after caution for the GWC and brought it home in 7th with only a 4x. Had a blast after some fine running suggestions from the team. Thanks Tifosi!

Rochette P8 (dont read too fast) remember back when you were a kid playing with your matchbox cars in the dirt? That i just had more fun than than mud caked 6 year old has ever had.

Reminded why the UI is worthless

The Great iRacing UI Debate rages on after over a year out of beta and always seems to be a hot topic

What I read from this thread is there is a group of old timers who have their entire process tailored to work with the idiosyncrasies of the web browser and those processes don’t work with the UI therefore it is worse. Then there is a group of newer users who tailored their processes to work with the idiosyncrasies of the UI and therefore don’t see a problem.

AP-121 | Augury Simulations

DrOrzy

@1.) Mike Ellis these just popped up on my Insta feed. They have Pedal Sex appeal 😍😍 They look really well made and have ABS. I wonder if that means it’s just a rumble motor or something even better?! The elastomers are fully enclosed which is definitely a good thing with these LC pedals so you can’t over “squash” them and cause permanent deformation or even bust them. I also like the fact that once you calibrate them it’s saved on the PCB so no need for ingame calibration.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: COTA

  • Ellis –   p9 – started like 16th got to 11th by lap 1 – at the end of the long inner straight some guy went right across my brow as i made the sharp u-turn 25 seconds damage – only slipped like once and lost a couple of seconds other than that pretty flawless race – 
  • Hall – P. technical issue,  Tightened throttle cylinder, and couldn’t get the car to down shift the whole race, wasn’t getting enough response to blip.
  • Greg – p disconnected
  • Kyle – p6 Started P10 and worked my way up to the top 5 and held the top 5 all the way through pit cycles. Led 4 laps and pitted on lap 22 hoping to make up ground with fresh tires while the field had older tires. Came out P7 and just over drove the car the last 12 laps and finished with a solid P6.

Kyle – P.  P-5 was having PC issues restarted my PC during qualifying so started back in 18th. Started the race with shifter issues pitted lap 1 to fix it came out P26 got involved with a spin right in front of me and got some damage. Fell back to last P27 and worked my way up through the field. Pitted at the halfway point and came out P7. Continued to charge on and work up to a P5 I was running down 3rd and 4th but just ran out of laps. So I’ll take a solid P5.

Race : Richmond

    • Tom D – p wrkdt out

  1. Snoop Quit Dog

Description

On the show today, we’ll be recapping the eNascar Coke Series race from Richmond, as well as the Porsche Supercup Race at Red Bull Ring. We’ll ask why so much difference from COTA in iRacing and the real race, and we’ll ride along with the Snoop Dog in iRacing. So sit back, relax and join us on the iRacers Lounge Podcast.
