NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: Texas

  • Hall – p15, 1 yellow, but came while lap down for green pit.  Might have gotten closer to 10th if no yellow
  • Donnie – P13, Q15
  • Sunday Open
    • Hall –  Punted with 20 to go while leaving a lane open and holding my line.  Welcome to
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -p6 – I don’t know how to describe that early first run tonight in Fixed, after 10 or so labs every single person was hospital loose out of two. I mean loose loose loose, super loose hang on for your life.  Know I just mean literally everyone in the room we all pitted for tires the second run it was like nothing ever happened. We all stuck like glue third run. It started getting loose again after 15 but that first run was weird.  I got some short runs at the end. We had enough tires and I was able to make a run forward.
    • Tyler p11?
    • Stephen –  p4

Wednesday Open:  Tally

  • Hall – p wreck on gwc, no where to go
  • Ellis – Pole! 12 teammates in TeamSpeak to run the event. Lost force feedback around Lap twenty . I could not get it back on finally a caution around lap 30. I had to pit and turn the wheel off and turn it back on and went to dead last. I eventually got to the front all the way from the back and led a bunch of laps before caution with 24 to go, now we are good on fuel running P3 for the restart. With some more laps in with a restart it was eight to go the wreck in front of me, and I get clipped and destroyed.  dnf 
  • Kyle P – P2 Started up in P7 and just kept it clean. Got to the front at the halfway mark. And had Tom Dreiling pushing me until we had a green flag pit. Came out of the pits with 7 to go and Tom was to nice and let me get back ahead of him to hold the lead. Came to 1 to go and P3 and P4 decided to make a run on the top side and I went to block but started to leave Tom Behind so I dropped back down to pick up tom and on the front we decided to go high and try for the win but just ran out of track Came home with a P2 and Tom with a P3. I led the most laps with 43 and set the fastest lap at a 48.974 finishing 0.0092 behind the lead and Tom and P4 finished tied 0.156 behind the leader. Thank you again to Tom for pushing me around Dega. iRacing farming has began again this week. 2500 IR is the goal by sunday. 
  • Tony R – P7 got clipped and damaged early in the race sp just putted along. Ended up getting fuel for last caution before the gwcs kicked in. Plenty of guys ran out of fuel at the white so just zoomed by – `
  • Steve – Did not qualify, started 27th and had two team mates in the split.  Bobby Jonas and Brian Maccubin.  This was my first race with Tifosi and first race ever in NIS. Rode around in the back thru a few cautions.  On the 3rd to last caution on lap 58 I went in and got just fuel with Brian and Bobby with around 40 to go.  We figured we could save fuel and finish to the end.  Another caution came out on lap 85 and all 3 of us stayed out gaining great track position with Brian running 1st, myself 2nd and Bobby was 5th.  I was going to push Brian to the win when the yellow came out on lap 94 about a ¼ mile from the start finish line.  Brian restarted 1st and I started on the outside in 2nd with Bobby starting I think 5th.  Mike Ellis was spotting for us and on the last lap Brian was behind me with a car in front of me and a car to the outside.  Mike told me to shoot the middle, which I did and Bobby punted me over the line for the Win!  Thanks to Mike, Bobby and Brian for all the help.  I was definitely outside my comfort zone as I have run an official race in years.  Thanks for allowing me on Team Tifosi!
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p13- Ran top 10 pretty much all race led a bunch of laps. About 15 to go. They wreck in front of me while I was run. An eighth and I got collected was seven minutes damage. Surprisingly the car was still fairly fast and I brought it home.
    • Rochette -P issed off got outside pole. Just did my thing till got through a wreck and a asshat just doors me for no reason (sorry mike if i hurt your virgin ears with my very loud hot mic obscenities) Got Damage fixed and still had good speed while 8 to go and was just taken out by some **************************** ending my race


Official Series

  • Ellis – F 2000 at Oulton park – qualified P8 out of 16. Got wrecked out in lab one. I actually went into the grass to avoid an incident end up in the back came around towards the end of the lap and the guy was fun and stopped. I went to go around him and as soon as I did he back in to me.
  • Q p seven and I finished P7. I finally got a finish even though I sped off on my own it was that last I did work my way up through attrition
  •  Q p5. Got myself up the second on the first Lap. By Lap five I had fallen to fourth.  That I spun all by myself off the last corner, and killed the car.  dnf. 
  • A Open

BL’s Offline Real World Replica Rosters

2022 NASCAR Cup Series – Next Gen

For the 2022 season I decided to first create a full season roster that can be used for championships, and am now working on some race specific rosters which I will continue to add as I complete them.

Again spent some time adding driver names to the window banners of every single car in the correct font and as close to correct sizing and placement as I could to add to the immersion.

Made sure all cars have correct pit box colors and no blank pit boards.

iRacing Season 4 2022 Build Highlights

iRacing posted a video on their YouTube channel wit a recap of the season 4 build

The green flag is waving for iRacing 2022 Season 4! This season includes the release of iRacing’s first fully electric race car, the Porsche Mission R, a pair of new European Road Courses, Motorsport Arena Oschersleben and Rudskogen Motorsenter, and a new Dirt Oval, Lucas Oil Speedway. We’ve added Indianapolis Motor Speedway – IndyCar Oval using our 2022 laser scan data, and have rebuilt all of the artwork for both the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala and Lotus 79 from scratch. A host of quality upgrades have also been completed, including a substantial change to the New Damage Model so that now damage builds up in areas on your car with repeated strikes which could eventually cause breakage, a rewrite and significant upgrade to the Low-Frequency Effects audio system, and the addition of Driving Aid Pit Lines for all Road Courses. For the iRacing UI, the veteran-favorite Race Guide is now available, as well as Custom Car Classes for AI Racing, and a few new Guided Tours. With our seasonal AI update, we have gone back to our Grand Prix Legends roots with the release of the Lotus 49 along with the much anticipated release of the NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen cars and 18 other new pieces of content. Buckle-up and drive full-throttle into iRacing 2022 Season 4!

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: Kansas

  • Ellis – Wrecked out a guy was losing it in the middle I went around is outside to go around him he just barely clipped me I ended up with 29 seconds optional and 3 1/2 minutes required and the car was not drivable.   
  • Rochette- P31 just found myself in the wrong spot wrong time wrecking car clips and sends me into the wall ends day
  • Spiker -P19 
  • Kyle – Started P15 and gained 5 spots in the first lap. Had a few quick cautions early. Restarted on Lap 21 and had a different pit strategy green flag stop around lap 80. Came out 1 lap down and in 21st. Ran strong getting back past the leader and and driving away. Started picking off positions quickly with the freshest tires on the track. Got up to P7 and a caution comes out at lap 101. Pitted with the rest of the leaders and lap 113 caution flys again Sitting P5 I decide to pit while the rest of the leaders stayed out.Came out the gate conserving my tires. And caution flys again a a lap or so later. I stay out and on the restart got the lead with 12 to go and battled for several laps for the lead. With 5 or so laps to go im sitting p3 and the caution comes out. We go into OT and I tailed the leader on the restart and run him through 1 and 2 only staying a fender behind him. We take the white and now p3 is working on me and I just couldn’t hold him off So i walk away with a Podium P3. Still gaining iRating like crazy.
  • Sunday Open
  • Rochette -P14 just couldn’t figure this track out this year. Glad its over 
  • Kyle –  That one bad race. Started P14 on a new setup. The car was loose and just dropped back fast. Got hooked on lap 11 and took major damage. Pitted and fixed the damage. Came out 17 laps down and was way off the pace. But was hoping to just take away any positions from wrecked out drivers. Worked in my favor and went from 35th to 24th.

Hall –   wrecked.  Car right in front of me got loose.  Car was crap anyway.  Work I did on the set didn’t pay off at all, it drove nothing like it should have.

  • Sunday fixed 
  • Mike -p23 – There were a bunch of early cautions and one guy was the common denominator I ended up and getting involved in two of his cautions for eight acts with 13 minutes damage. I got it all repaired and went back out there and finish P 23. I was determined to finish the head of the guy who caused all the cost of the shirt off he eventually wrecked him self out.

Wednesday Open:  Bristol

  • Hall -wrecked out, the ultimate choke
  • Ellis – started 19th got involved in a caution not too much damage, but was trapped a lap down and had to take awave around. There’s several cars in front of the leader as we come to the one to green and it doesn’t wave us around so the lap cars end up starting the race in front of the leaders.  Later another caution comes, but I’m not a lucky dog later at lap 50 another caution comes and I stay out to try the wave around again, and it works. Luckily, I got another caution to get back on the same tire strategy. Driving forward from there. God is high SP2 was running about fifth when I spend on my own down to the inside and created 4 1/2 minutes damage losing three laps. Speed still good there and I continue on later. Getting another wreck that I couldn’t miss. Bringing it to six minutes damage.  still three laps down, but through attrition gradually work my way up and up and up and by the end of the race I was p4!!!
  • Tom D – wrecked out
  •  
  • Adam – wrecked out
  • Stephen – wrecked out
  • Thurs Open 
  •  

Rochette -P2 heartbreaker in last great coliseum. Was definitely the fastest car as led 87 laps and stayed top 3 all day. Wrong pit strategy and a yellow coming out just before i was about to unlap myself from a green flag stop (would’ve gained 3 laps in 20 laps run). Got lucky dog in 3rd so started behind the lappers and not enough time to make my way up front. So close yet so far



Official Series


  • A Open
    • Hall – p15 in a 6.3k SoF 13 pro’s
      • I was slow on first 30 laps, but as the leader was getting near lapping me, I started matching his speed.  I pass a car and catch a 2 lap down car who doors me to keep me from getting by him.  I get back in around behind around 8th and fight to catch back up to the other LD candidate.  Couple of pro’s didn’t like it, but I was pacing them and holding my line not blocking.  Caution Comes, I take wavearound.  Pays off as the 2 lap down idot wrecks a pro.  80 lap run to finish.  Again Garret Manes gets to within 3 seconds of lapping me.  Then I start pasing cars and drive from 21st to 15th.  Had a shot af 11th as we were bunch up at the end, but with the battling right in front of me I couldn’t snag another spot.

Ellis – F 2000 at Summit raceway – started P8 out of 13 got to pee six near the end of the first lap and on the final corner I spot it and tour of the left front off. 

  • SPIKER P8


Kyle Ran a bunch of the Mazda Global MX5’s I forgot how much fun these cars are. A lot of P2 finishes trying to save my A license.


League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    • Mike – p15 – was running like crap, dead last and not up to pace really… GF stops started to happen i stayed out, ended up getting a caution before pitting caught the lucky dog. So ended up p9 starting 9th coming to one to green, and the admins decide to arbitrarily throw a delay to the green. Now, I am put back from 9th to 21st I have to let all the wave arounds by… I call out over the radio totally unfair, and am given no explanation, no sorry, no nothing i have to go to tail end… I get other drivers trying to argue that I would have had to let them by anyways…  So we go again and same thing a gf cycle starts, and then i stay out, catch the caution, p6… once again 10 on lead lap they delay the gf again…. I call them out again, unfair… I was slow and needed those 15 cars to be spread out coming to green so it was harder to catch me…  but because of admin pushing a button that didnt need pushed, they were all up right behind me… IMO delay of green should never be used due to its unintended consequences. This is why leagues suck… Admin didnt mean to screw me, but they did none the less… If this was official, it would have never happened.
    • Adam –  p dnf – too loose –
  • unofficial – Ellis
    • Mazda cup at Rudskogan motor Center. Qualified P5 out of 19 got ran over from behind in the first high-speed corner ended up dead last worked my way back up to 12th. 
    • Next race qualified P8 out of 19. I had a few slow down penalties which really put me back but I got up to P7. 
    •  
  • Week 13
    • Hall   P1 twice  in Ridiculousness.
  • Chris McGuire hosted racing. Kia Optima at Daytona. Wrecked out but still finish ninth. 
    • Kyle and David won each class in a Porche EV and Trucks race at Dega
  • radicals and lotus 79 at the new free track. Wrecked out

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Darlington

Ellis –   p3! – Started mid pack got to about 5th and ran back half of the top 5 for most of the night. At one point we split tire strategy and I ended up leading some laps. Some short runs at the end played in my favor, I will take the podium!

Rochette- P11 Sounded like a sqwauker all night – we couldnt hear him in teamspeak (started on pole led a couple laps went to pit to try to figure out audio. Came from the back to front again pitted mustve got a bf for something i had to go to the back again made my way up front. Was definitely top 3 car again. Pitted for 2 tires on that gwc. 2nd place  hit the wall i got in the back made the save than hell broke loose and see how that ended up

  • Hall – p 21 laps down, caught in unavoidable
  • Spiker – P11, Q24
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette-P33rd 2nd straight pole for the lady in black but that wench had other plans. First steam VR Decided it wanted to quit on me 3 laps in of my second and half lead out of T2 and i made it safe to the inside wall without killing anyone. Than got iracing back up was 4 laps down. Think i passed more cars than i ever had to get within a lap down and some back marker just doors me out of 4 and kills it. Ive had tons of fun with Darlington this week but have had the crappiest luck
    • Hall – p wrecked unavoidable on lap 3.  
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p wrecked out – got squeezed hard into the wall at one point early, 3 and half minutes dmg – car was still fast though – as i did repairs each caution i would drive back up through the field – like 25th to 10th or 21st to 8th. At some point I gave up on fixing damage and kept track position and got to the lead for at least one lap… I was running fifth near the end and someone ahead spun way down low and came right back up into the track and I plowed in hard… 16 minutes damage. I’ll tell you what that race with Tom tonight was a lot of fun. I drove through the field multiple times. We run third and fourth and I’m trying my hardest to get to second and I can’t do it and I finally say OK tell him you take a swipe at it and he drives right up to the first takes the lead. If there was no caution he had them covered . I don’t know in a fixed race like that in NiS… everyone in the same set. To be a good notch faster than everyone else it’s felt really good
    • Tom – P-.wrecked out – w about 10 to go drove up from 4th to the lead – but the caution came, took tires restarted 7th got to 4th but clipped a guy and spun out and wrecked hard… Needed a long run at the end to win it.

Race :  Kansas

Wed Fixed 

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p 11   mid pack speed.  No incidents.  
    • Ellis – p17 – ran about 20th to 25th most of the event – later got on alternate tire strategy and led some laps… But no late cautions put me dead last on lead lap.
    • Kyle P – P7 Started 12th and started to strong and burnt up my tires. Found the top ;ine was harder on the tires and made the car free on exit. Adjusted my line to the bottom and found more consistency and speed. After falling to the high 20’s I made my way back through the field. Got as high as 5th but just couldn’t hold on to it. Last caution came with 10 go. Restarted with 6 laps in p9 and just battled my way to a p7. Darlington and Kansas have been great for farming iRating for me.
    • Tony R – P something something made it to lap 20 when decided to park it as my quality bar was hanging out in the 40s and was blicking. Been awhile since my internet took a big steaming pile.  
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p 6 – different set today but it was worse then last night – basically ran between 20th to 25th all race – some late cautions and some luck got me to the top ten for the final restart, p6 I will take it and walk away…

Official Series

  • Ellis – F 2000 at Lime rock- qualified P7 out of 13. Went off track by myself three different times ended up P9
  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall –  P1 at Daytona
      • Hard Fought with an actually full field.  Set the pole but had a competitor who was set up to run fast on the banking.  Stayed in his tow for the first half of the race, would run him down in the infield and loose a little ground on the bus stop.  But after I ran him down and passed him once in the infield he short pitted.  After Cycle I had a 3 second lead and pulled away.
      • 2nd and 3rd WIN at Daytona
        • Something about this car and track just lets me out run guys with higher iRatings.
  • SPIKER  

Nascar B-Open Kansas – P23, Q9.  Kansas is my worst track.  It seems so simple, but I am so slow here.

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.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Glen 

Ellis –   p20. 

  • Hall – p21 taken out by ridiculous dive bomb
  • Spiker – P P16, Q17 – Running P8-P12, I was too conservative on pit entry being too afraid to get caught speeding.  Ruined my run.  But Watkins Glen is a blast.
  • Sunday Open

Hall – p 10   would prefer a better result but the race was fun as we had 4 cars basically in a close pack the whole run.  Had to stay on toes and turned fastest laps of the week.

Race :  Daytona

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p 6  Struggled to get to the front, had to fix damage twice, finally caught some brakes at the end and had a shot but when it shook out i had no help
    • Ellis – p2 Got to the front pretty quick and led the first half of the race pretty much leading most of the laps. Obviously I used more fuel than everybody else and had to pit it before the halfway mark called out to my team member to stay out so he wouldn’t be screwed and pitted by myself. Much later in the race I finally catch a caution which puts me back into the race and on the same fuel strategy then restarted P seven. Then a couple late cautions I was able to get myself up to fourth , with this great run around the outside of a bunch of checked cars i went from 14th to 4th in one lap then was able to mix it up for the lead, on the white i was leading on the outside but no help 3 cars went low on me, fell to 4th but was able crossover and they wrecked but not quite enough P2. 
    • Kyle P – Pwrecked out
    • Tony R – P18 started on pole tucked in behind leader til green flag stops he pits 3 laps before me i take the lead back. Came out 2nd after my stop behind some lapped cars and hung out with them, took the lead back. Was gonna make it with only 1 stop but first caution came out with 20 to go. Should’ve stayed out as i fell back to 7th. But fast forward to white flag. Jumped to the outside in 8th had a car jump out in front let off the gas so i wouldn’t wreck him and got plowed from behind ugh…
    • Tyler – P 16 – started dead last as I was number 35 in my split. Played it safe and rode in the back. Out of 3 cautions I got tangled up in one with about 20 to go. Left front damage but not bad. Was able to rally up to 16th. Best part of the night was listening to our team finish solid. 
    • Tom D – P12 – had a top 5 q and ran up there the 1st run – once Mike took the lead I settled in behind him for the whole 1st run… He pitted before half way I stayed out w the leaders – after gf stops, still leading with enough fuel to make it… Much later a caution. Then the guy leading the outside gets bumper hooked into me and cleaned me out, no damage though, and tried to get back up there to help Mike but didnt have enough time. Great run, lead 5 laps, teammates running 1 and 2 the first half the race, a great event… 
    • Bobby –p1 So I shorted pitted under yellow, took tires and fuel, went 15ish laps, leaders pit, I made up enough spots picking way through to pit with them, came out in front and lead all the way til the white, then out of 4 took it back – 3 years straight wins at Daytona summer race! 6 straight years with a win in the nascar iracing series.That was crazy. Can’t thank my teammates at tifosi racing enough.
    • Spiker – P18, Q9.  I received a drive through penalty for passing under yellow.  After receiving the wave around and pit strategy, found my running P3 w/ 6 laps to go, I Lagano’d the outside line going into T1.  The most embarrassing moment yet.   
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p Pole position! Couldn’t get away from the front so pulled over on the back stretch and fell the eight to try to save fuel. Eventually caught enough cautions where we didn’t need to save fuel anymore and I was leading at 30 to go. Second line finally form and got by me before another Caution at P7 was 17 to go. 
    • Did another caution restart it P6 with eight to go. Was rat P5 and got turned on a guy that was trying to go around the outside. Car done. 

Rochette P15 so car 27 check. Got pole check. Last 2 times i was the 27 on a pole i was a weiner. As my old football / weightlifting coach used to say: NOT TODAY. had a save of a lifetime early on as a car from the outside just murders my right rear and was sideways and saved it but wouldnt be the only time i would be sideways. White flag on the outside was hit and hit again making me ride the wall and than just slid to the backstretch on my driverside door. Fun times



Official Series

  • 24 Hour Endurance Series
    • Hall – P6,  we should have had a podium.  But still held on after a lot of damage to take 6th.
  • A Open
    • Ellis – startedp30 to leave by Lap three. Wrecked out a few laps later. 
    • Got wrecked out on left two on a huge check up on the inside lane in the middle of the backstretch got wrecked from behind 2 1/2 minutes damage. I got it all fixed I missed the second caution but was involved in the third one. 126 damage on this wreck. 
  • Ellis – Skippy is at Nuremberg Ring. 
    • Started mid pack and wrecked out on the first lap. 
    • Started seventh out of 14 and made it to P5
    • Started 13th got to 10th but then wrecked it
    • Start a P5 out of 14. By end of lap 1 i was up to second – i hunted the leader and forced the issue and got by, then i gapped him… Some guy who had started from pits was coming, was up to 3rd about 9 seconds back and he made up 7 seconds on me… my 85th career win
  • F2000 – Indianapolis
    • F2000 -started P5 out of 16. Wrecked our lap one turn 2
  • SPIKER
    • Nascar B Open, P10, Q9
    • Nascar C Open – P13, Q2.  Running P4, w/ less than 10 Laps to.  Taken out by P2 and P3




League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. David – p game crashed half way through race
    2. Mike – p15. Started dead last in P 29 got to pee 20 by the end of lap one. Hit it when the fuel window opened from 15th and pretty much ran that position the rest of the race.
  1. Ellis  –  Chris MacGuire – Hosted – 87 cars at Talladega started last p30. Got the lead by lap 10. Some guy parked it on the back stretch and the field came around and we plowed in. Hosts and admins were livid. 
  2. Then started P 29 out of 35. I quickly get upto about 12th within three laps and sure enough there’s a slow lap car in the middle of the track as the pack is coming they tell him to move he doesn’t do anything we all wreck. So frustrating but this is happened twice in a row. And they have over a dozen admins. 
  3. Supercars at Michigan- the sim crashed twice while getting into the car I rebooted and joined the race 4 laps Down. 
  4. The gen 5 at iss. 261 top speed. Was p1 on the white and a guy passed me under the yellow and wiped me out. 
  5. GEN five at Talladega. Got wrecked out lap 1
  6. 87s and Pro two at wild West Park.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Interview – Part 1

Dale Earnhardt Jr is interviewed about his position and history with iRacing


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKdiARLXz_8

Dale Jr talks about his role at iRacing, his friendships made through sim racing, and working on the 1987 NASCAR cars.

He talks about the team/league environment where you end up making friends real friends over time because you end up talking every day, etc…

Talks about the 87’s development, getting Bobby Labonte involved. Went to NASCAR Alumni, crew chief, engineers and drivers from that period. He ended up will real setup notes, horsepower numbers, and many other things. iRacing incorporated all of it. Using what we know today we could make the car run faster and better, but back then they didn’t know what we know now so we didn’t do that, we kept it true to the period.

Listener Michael Minor Sent In

Hello sir!  First off I want to thank you for your podcast. I listen to it often and truly enjoy it.

So question for you that might even be a podcast topic.  What would you do if you saw a commercial during the coke race, with a cup series driver on iRacing making moves on the track in his sponsored car… then you realize that footage is actually you? It was actually you on track and your car from 7 months ago, but the car has been repainted (assuming trading paints) to look like this professional driver making moves on iRacing dodging crashes.

Well that happened to me tonight.

Fair point… what threw me off was it’s a Logitech commercial with iRacing clips in it.  Not an iRacing promo of any kind.

iRacing has my clip of that, I sent it in and it made the Daytona Highlights video back in February.

I just find it fun I can walk around and tell people I helped make Bubba Wallace look good. lol

For reference if you care, the commercial is at 1:35:40 in last nights stream: https://youtu.be/NjFP32mYJYA And my clip I sent to iRacing starts at 1:44. : https://youtu.be/9tumMgtXfWA

Youtuber, Dan Suzuki, reviews the Cammus DDWB 2021 Wheel Base and GT1 Wheel. With the wheel being discounted to $500, Suzuki mentioned the price is, okay. He tested the wheel if both ACC and iRacing and found he was a little disappointed with how the wheel base performed in iRacing. The wheel base ships from China with a hefty shipping cost of nearly $200 bring the cost up. Overall, Suzuki indicated the DD for $500… “feels a little bit weak, but will probably be good enough for most people.”

Ellis –   p 11 – Started P-24 eventually work my way up to as high as P4 with 50 to go. Ran my tires off this running fell way back to 17th. Got a late caution was able to work myself back up to a 11th. 

Rochette- P4 not bad for waking up from a nap 10 minutes before race time, having window update issues, doing the control figuration, and not having my seq shifter not working. Spent first half groggy and in the back. Eventually made my way up to 2nd for the final restart with 90 to go. Car got tight on me so lost a few. That was probably the longest Green flag run I’ve ever had a Richmond 

  • Stephen-P1
  • Hall – p 22.  Choked.  First had to reset after gridding.  It didn’t just take 1 set of 2 tires.   I had to run 100 laps on 1 set to get back even.  Had to take lucky dog twice.  Got back on sequence, climbed all the way to 9th, spun tires on last restart, had to collect it low and let whole field by.

Spiker – P23, Started P6. Car felt great and I had great long run speed.  After avoiding two early incidents, I decided to fall to the rear and pick off the casualties as the race went on.  That was a mistake as I fell victim to two additional incidents, one breaking my RF toe link (8M damage).  Ran the rest of the race with awesome long run speed.  Top 10 Speed.

  • Sunday Open
  • Rochette-P2 started in the middle of the pack. Had to pit first caution as  my screen was shuttering pretty bad. But made it to the front where battled last 1st for the last 15 laps. I swear if i wasn’t the nice guy i am the leader would’ve been bumped and ran out of 2 on the white flag 

Hall – p 8   Top Split, incident free.  Trapped a lap down cause green flag stops, quick caution made the wave around pay off.  Then Gained about 7 spots by staying out on 30 lap old tires for a GWC.

  • Sunday fixed 
  • Mike –p 8 – Ran mid pack basically most of the race, got as high as 8th at one point – with about 20 to go a lost it and fell to the back – but two late cautions bounced me from 20th to 15th… then gwc went 15th to 8th
  • Stephen – p wrecked out on final restart
  • Tyler – P 9 – yes, a top 10 at Richmond. Sliding sideways with 4 other cars to finish behind teammate Mike Ellis was wild! Eventful race but finally some luck. The seas parted at the right time. Finished with a 16x.

Race :  Watkins glen

  • Wed Open:
  • Hall –p 9, actually had teammates in my split.  Clean race
  • Ellis – p15- Started P 25 got to P 20 by Lap one. Followed Tom Driling until the stop at the halfway point. Cycled out to about 14th after the stops. At one point I caught an old rival that was fairly slow and tried to pass them in the bus stop and I drove in a bit deep and drove into him and a few of us wrecked. I am did up able to continue on. Brought it home. 
  • Tony R – P9  love this track but on the slow side. Only 4x from off tracks from avoiding multiple guys squiggle squiggling. Shoutout to the winner Ryan Samuelson for having a big enough gap to 2nd and not lapping me. Thank you sir 

Tyler – P 22. Had a extremely fast run and felt great in the car. Pitted early to play with strategy but ended up eating meatballs as the car didn’t turn in the bus stop. Ran out of skill but glad I was fast for once. Excited for Sunday.

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p9- started 17th got to 11th by lap two. Had a moment and fell back to 15th hit it at halfway from 15th worked my way back up to p9. 

Rochette P5 definitely bottom split. Lowest ir was a 169. Started 8th but 5th and 6th decided to kill eachother lap 1 T1 and squiggled when i should’ve woggled. Made my way downtown looking fast til i got lapped after i pitted. But got the best road result of the year after being the 2021 Tifosi NiS Road King



Official Series


Ellis –

  • F2000 – Road America
    • Started P 10, car 10. In the top split dead last. Got to p five by the end of the firstlap. Was able to hold it right up until right before the white where I spun on the final corner and got hit from behind and destroyed ended up finishing P9. 
    • Car number 13 out of 14 started 11th. I went off once nobody else really did and I ended up P 12
    • F2000 – Lucas Oil speedway – started p1 of 2 – and finished p1
    • Started p5 got to p2 but a faster car got me, finished p3 out of 11
    • Started p6, finished p6
  • SPIKER
  • Nascar B Open, Watkins Glenn – P5, Started P6.  Good Run, No Issues.  1x earned during the race. Went wide at T1 midway through the race.

League / Hosted Races


  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. David – p 6 , fast on the long run, but not as fast as the top 5.  Woulda Coulda Shouda split the last stint like the winner did, as a p6 does nothing for my playoff picture.  But I already know I have a marching contest on one of the final races, so league racing on a Monday night is just not point battle good for me.  Just keeping in the field with team mates.
    2. Joe – plaps down
    3. Greg p parked it
    4. Mike – p13
    5. Adam –  p parked it

WoO Late Model Series Week 3 – Eldora

This Monday night at Eldora Speedway EvanSeay got his first win of the season after finishing second in the first two weeks—although it came after contact with Cardwell. When that duo touched across the start-finish line with nine laps to go, sending Cardwell spinning into the Turn 1 wall and collecting Matjoulis in third, it cleared the path for Seay to not only take his first win of the season, but also extend his points lead.

Wheelchair Sim Rig

Justin Brown Posts:

Would anyone (or know anyone) interested in a wheelchair accessible racing setup? After 33 years of being paralyzed unfortunately I can no longer race due to both shoulders being “worn out” as my Dr. put it. This setup is best suited for a manual wheelchair. This includes Accuforce V2 with original wheel and a cheap no name smaller wheel.(pictured) Three 32in Sceptre 1080p 75hz monitors and Heusinkveld pro pedals.

Best PC to Run iRacing

News that AMD are launching Ryzen 7000 on Sept 15th and Nvidia are dropping the RTX 4000 series in October. Raptor Lake from Intel should be around in November. You can buy now, though it’s the end of the current generations and for the dollars maybe worth waiting for the new stuff to arrive. You’ll either get a bargain on the above list or be able to get even more bang for the dollar from the new stuff.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Michigan

Spiker – P19, Started P17 – It was a fun run.  I made a mistake attempting to pass a slower vehicle.  I lost patience, entered Turn 3 too hot and slid up into the wall. Short pitted the final run which was a mistake causing me to lose two spots.

  • Hall – p parked- was terrible slow, then got unsafe exit penalty and just was done
  • Sunday fixed 
  • Mike –p Ran my tires off in about eight laps and then fell they the field to almost dead last, decided to short pit at lap 33 but I was caught speeding on Pit Road because I only at 2% left on the right front so I had a 40 second penalty at the point I came out I To be running dead last three laps down. As the cycle continued and finished I got back to one lap down before a caution I ended up staying out for the wave around to get back on the lead lap then luckily got another caution several laps later to get back on the same fuel entire strategy then another short run to move from 20th to 12th.  with 19 to go I went from 12th to 5th and 10 laps before the next caution. Another quick caution leaves us with a restart with four to go and restarting  P7. Drove up to P3 ran out of time to get past the next two… p3!!! Woot!
  • Stephen – p wrecked out on lap seven again.
  • Race :  Richmond

Wed Fixed

Tyler – P Blown up. Got wiped out by a dive bomber on a GWC. Restarted 8th and was cleaned out. Frustrating as I spent time practicing and working with the setups and the team to get the car to feel right. Gutted I didn’t get this top ten. Fun racing with Tom and Mike spotting

  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p The guy who dumped me last night did the same thing to another guy on lap one as well so I did not feel as bad considering he could do it to anybody   . Started the in 19th and made it up to third by the end of the first run. It ran third and second basically the entire run I could not catch the leader I ran my ass off every lap. Last run I tried my hardest and ended up with P4!!!

Fri open: 

  • Hall – P 9 – Had Terrible pace, only got to practice 20 minutes and haven’t run all week.  Stole the position because I pitted on the edge of a window and a lot of drivers didn’t.

  • F2000 – Oran park – started p11 got to p3 by end of lap 1 – had a big gap on the rest, spun on my own at one point, kept my spot but fourth place was right on me now – had to run hard the last laps to hold it… Donnie spotted.
    • Started p8 got to p3 by turn 3 lap 1 – was able to hold it for the rest of the race – top two drove away about a second per lap faster each lap
    • Started p6 got to p3 by turn 1 lap 1 – eventually got to p2 – had nothing for the leader he was a half second faster, but i did find some speed finally trying to roll the corners more and got my faster times every by about 7 tenths…

Another Wild 87′ Save at Dega

What Regrets Do you Have?

La Broca Sim Racing posted a video laying some of his regrets regarding the amount of money he has spent in a year and a half on the service. He provides good advice on what content you should or should not purchase. When and when not to make purchases.

In March 2022, La Broca indicated he has spent $231 Euros. Averaging out to be $21 Euros a month. Honestly, does not sound that bad.

How much have you spent?

    • Kyle P – P7 Started P6. Did my best to save tires but found myself fading so decided to push hard and the car got loose after an early race adjustment. Adjusted back to the original setup and the car was comfortable again but now it was time to move back up from 19th. Slowly worked my way up through the field and just couldn’t get that top 5 finish I was shooting for. Bringing home a P7.
    • Tony R – P10 was too loose start of the race. 1 caution burned up my tires on 2nd run 17th to 5th in 5 laps and faded hard and couldnt catch the leaders after
    • Tyler – P29. Was running around 20th as green flag cycles were wrapping up when I brushed the wall in between 3 and 4. Couldn’t get off the wall and spun out completely.

World of Outlaws Late Model Series Returns

Fans of World of Outlaws late model action and iRacing, rejoice: the World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series makes its long-awaited return on Monday, July 25, for a 10-round dash for $25,000 in prizes. The culmination of iRacing’s dirt oval ladder for late model drivers, the series sees 35 of the world’s best sim racers go wheel-to-wheel at some of the premier dirt tracks in America, including many staples of the real-world World of Outlaws calendar. Each race will be broadcast live at 9PM ET across iRacing’s social media channels and DirtVision.

In total, $25,000 is on the line, with $10,000 the big prize for the series champion and each of the top 10 finishers in series standings receiving a payout. The top three finishers in each event also take home cash prizes, with $300 for each race winner, $200 for second place, and $100 for third.

The Series took the green flag this past Monday at Fairbury Speedway.

Results…

2020 series champion Hayden Cardwell broke a trend that had previously seen rookie and first-time winners kick off the series with victories by outdueling fellow series veteran Seay on the final lap in a photo finish to take the victory. 2019 champion Blake Matjoulis completed a veteran-heavy podium, with polesitter Damian Kiefer the top-finishing series rookie in fourth.

    •  Groves – P 2 didn’t Q, started 32, got spun and hit in the rear ¼, got up to 6th before green flag pit stop, back out in 16.  Caution comes out with 5 to go i cycle up to 3rd for the first gwc, 2nd attempt still 3rd but get a much better launch and the leader and I break away, I try to make my move in 1 but don’t hit the entry and tightened up, it was his from there.  Fun battle at the end  
  • Hall – p 6 was in position to do well on fuel strategy, but we had a caution with 20 to go, then 10 to go, and I struggled to hold on to 3rd on a short run and got moved buy a guy without major cost

Spiker – P30, I was wrecked into T1 early on.  Went a lap down then rode the back until I got the Lucky Dog.  With 25 to go, coming out of 1, down the strait, I shift into 3rd killing my motor.  1 hour 3 minutes of damage.  Nothing worse than creating your own problems with such a silly self error. 

Race :  Indy

  • Wed Open:
    • Ellis – p8 – started p13 by end of lap 1 was p7, spun once by myself, had a guy dive bomb me and tag me, he eventually apologized. Race went way better than expected top 10 hell yeah
    • Kyle P – p9 started p19 got up to p5 but shortly lost it to newer tires. Half way I lost all talent and couldn’t keep it on the track for about 5 laps. Finally got focused and worked my way up to P9 2022 Working on my Road
    • Tony R – P on protest this till we get the Oval back 
    • Tyler – P15 – started from the pits to play it safe. Really stuggled as I was not able to be Consistent with the car at all. I would like to point out how fair the off-track limits were at this track. You could actually clip the curb and run off track a little bit without actually getting a 1X compared to a track like cota so well done iRacing
  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p3! – Start at P 15 appears to be bottom split car number eight. Got to eight by about halfway through the 1st lap then worked my way up to 3rd before pits, after pits after it cycled ended back in third – great podium



Official Series

  • Kyle – P4 Started P4 and stayed up front. And just hung around the top 5. Brought home a solid P4.
  • Ellis – Skippys at Sonoma – Started p4 – quickly got to p2 then the leader checked out – held off 3rd and 4th until halfway, then he got besides me in the s’s and i got hit and spun, then another car piled in. Then i was 7th but fought back to finish p6
  •  
  • Start p12 – finish p10 – top split more than half the field above 6k. Got ran over by one guy down to 3 wheels to quick repair came out 12th got back to 10th.
  • F2000 – Mid Ohio
    • Started p6 got to p4 but some fast guy got me and fell to p5
    • Started p5 – was running p5 minding my own came up on a lapper who is way slow way offline i stay in line and as i come by, he comes into the groove suddenly and takes me out. Gelt intentional but who knows.
  • SPIKER
  • Nascar B Open, Indy Road – P5, Started P6.  Pretty uneventful for the most part.  On L2, I was hit in the rear in the end of the back straight braking zone.  I should have prepared better.  I was utilizing a curtain third party app which allowed me to see iRating and License class for the first time.  Directly behind me was a driver highlighted in red.  He booted me off the track in the braking zone.  I was able to avoid any contact with any barriers and continued on.  Worked my way back up the field to finish P5
