The fastest qualifying line (tacky track) is on the inside, so run the bottom of the track all the way around. Sometimes about half a car-width from the bottom is a little better, especially in turns three and four. A very short slider line can also be fast. That’s something with which you will need to experiment to see what works best for you.

Continue to run the bottom or the short slider line as in qualifying. If the track is becoming relatively dry and slick during your heat race, try running above the slick in turns one and two. You can run a little higher in turns three and four also, or you can start to run a short slider if it’s slick enough.
Feature Racing the iRacing Big Block Modified at Cedar Lake Speedway
Feature racing at Cedar Lake Speedway usually offers a few different options for the racing lines. Which option works best really depends on the track state. Most drivers run the top on both ends of the track, running slightly lower in turns three and four. If you can perfect the short slider line in turns three and four you may gain an advantage in speed as well as passing. At some point, the fastest way through turns one and two will become the line right next to the wall. Practice that line if you want to be fast late in the race.
