NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Daytona

Ellis –   p6 Greg and I ran P1 thru the first part of the race. Stephen Eventually got up there with us… At one point I made a bad move to the top and lost sometrack position but worked my way up for the final restart for us to be first third and fifth. We lined up 123 on the bottom. We had a nice bit of a breakaway wind up coming to the final corners Stephan made a move on Greg and basically took the win everyone else came up quickly and it was a scramble. But we got the win. 

Rochette- P5

  • Stephen-P1
  • Greg – P3 – let 75 laps and lead the white flag lap
  • Spiker – P13, Q2.  Ran up front, led laps, had a great green flag stop (Lap 39).  Saved fuel under every caution.  Started 3rd GWC in P3, ran out of fuel in T1/T2.  All in all, a plus positive in iR during Daytona Week!  
  • Saturday Fixed –
  • Sunday Open
  • Rochette-P4 
  • Greg p2 – Led 35 Laps and lead the white flag lap
  • Hall – p wreck on white flag, running in third lane, and one of the “greats” made a mistake on the apron and took us all ou
  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p Got involved in the first three cautions one and a half minutes damage was able to recover after fixing it up to leave some labs on the final stop I ended up with excessive speeding and the Panthers had to drop to the end with a 18 to go. Got involved in another wreck 2 1/2 minutes damage I was getting it repaired and then at the end of the repair it’s so how gave me tires and I lost the lap. Later got the lucky dog and restarting P 10 for the final restart. Got wrecked coming to the line that put me over the incident limit black flag. P

Race :  Darlington

Wed Open:

Hall –p19  tough Strength of Field, 4.7 k.  Expected to get right at a top 20, should have had a 15th or higher but pitted on the wrong side during green flag stops.

Ellis – p12. Basically ran top five most of the day went to short pad on a green flag stop and the caution came out as we came on the pit Road ended up losing a lap. Never could get it back. 

Kyle P – P1 Started 10th and slowly worked my way to the top 5 in the first 7 laps. Lap 13 a caution comes out. I was trying a strategy that didn’t work out and restarted P1 but faded fast. In a hand full of laps we got a caution and I got tires. Restarted in the high 20’s and through attrition I marched my way back up front. With 6 to go im running 5th and not making up any more spots. A lapper lost it in front of the leaders and took out the top 3 and I edged out 4th place before the caution came out. From there it was focus time and after 4 more restarts I raced my way to a P1. Thank you to Mike for spotting and Bobby for cheering me on.

Tony R – P11 started 2nd. Stayed up front for most of the race. Just ran my tires off of the last 30 laps.



Official Series

  • SPIKER  

Nascar B-Open (Darlington) P9, Q9.  – Good run, my speed fell off a little at the end of the run.  Only received one stripe, as I thought I would test my tire wear entering T1 a little aggressively. 




League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. Joe – p9
    2. Greg p5
    3. Mike – p4. A good team showing. Too many cautions at the end we had to pit before the final gwc’s…. Several stayed out we still have no idea how they made it on fuel. 
    4. Adam –  p 26
  • Hosted – 
    1. Ellis  -Chris Maguire 87 cars at Talladega started P5 out of 40 got to the lead by lap three got wrecked later where I flipped completely upside down which was pretty fun. They had a competition caution and lined them up again started 19th got the ninth pretty quickly but then got dumped. 
    2. Missed the start got a wave around at the halfway mark ran up about halfway through the pack before getting wrecked. 
    3. Jen five car at Talledega started P 31 out of 40. Got up to about P6 before I wrecked. Kyle ghosted.
