Short Cutting COTA

Tyler Stooksbury Posted, “I noticed specifically with COTA, NASCAR is allowing drivers to use a lot of the paved run off areas of the track. How hard would it be to get a NASCAR layout where the only difference is expanded track limits that follow the nascar rules more closely?”

Results

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

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p.7.  Caught by other cars wrecking 4 times, had to finish the 3rd green white checker with 16x.  Almost unlucky lucky.  Won’t be able to get in car again still Sunday.
    • Ellis – p. 19 – How a good run going and was actually marching forward on old tires from 19th as high as fourth at Lap 140 I got just a hair loose turn back to the right and it slammed to the wall over four minutes damage, lost two laps and this brought it home. 
    • Tom D – p wrkdt out
  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p2 – Started 9 fairly clean race up front worked my way up to eventually leading w 50 to go – gwc restart guy divebombs from way back gets by, i then get into the back of him in the middle and get back by, but the guy in third goes by both of us and i cant hold if off and it was side by side at the line at .03 diff.
