Listener Follow Up

  • Name: Mark Coffman
  • Message: That Tuesday Morning Wake-up portion of last night’s show was more than likely from the Dinner With Racers Podcast iRacing League. They have crazy car/track combinations every week. That race was the 2009 CoT, Gen 6 Cup car, IR18 in one class and Formula Vee’s in their own class at the same time at iRacing Super Speedway. They have real world racers racing with us regular racers week in week out. It’s a great time. This week was GT3, McLaren F1 in one class and Pro Two Lite trucks in another class on the figure 8 at Irwindale. You guys should check it out. They broadcast 1 of the races each week on YouTube.

League / Hosted Races

  • Winter League
    1. Ellis – p30 – was 27th when people started pitting under green on final run – decided nothing to lose stay out waiting for a caution – cycled up to 10th, pitted when out of fuel, and caution as I rolled onto pit lane. Ended up lap down fighting for lucky dog and took it 3 wide but the inside guy clipped apron just a hair, and we touched spun. 

Hall – p27 was running 20ish last pit stop made a mistake rushing in, Mike was out of gas, wasn’t sure if I could pass him or not and in the process I shifted into 1st and hurt the engine.
