Just a quick update — I added one new rule to the League Rules page:
A visible car number is required for each participant.
Please keep your car numbers visible to avoid confusion.
Last Week’s Race Winners
Chris Roberts led every lap and was untouchable in Friday night’s OSR Modified race at USA International Speedway.
The Street Stock drivers ran 51 laps at Concord Speedway without a single caution. Ron Collinsworth had the race in hand, but somehow I snuck by on a pit stop. A few cars chose not to stop for tires. That put Nick Schaeffer in the lead. Nick led for 21 laps then I managed to get under him on a last lap effort to win the race.
AJ Rogers and Ron Collinsworth swapped the lead a few times in the early laps of the Late Model race at South Boston Speedway. As a result of the caution that fell on lap 24, I somehow took the lead. I went on to lead most of the race, but Royce Scrivano had wisely changed tires during one of the cautions. Royce ran me down and I knew I was done for. Besides, I was blinking a little so I moved up to let Royce go on by. When I moved up the car felt better so I just stayed up there and I saw Royce start to fade back a little, then I think he moved up to the high line too.
The caution came out again on lap 81, and I could not avoid some wrecked cars on the front stretch going into turn one, so that ended my race. Royce Scrivano went on to win in a car that looked a little bit beat up, but most of them did after that race.
All in all, it was the most fun I’ve had on iRacing in a long time. The car counts were great and the racing action was non-stop. I look forward to next week. 🙂
The OSR Modifieds head north for a late afternoon race at what could accurately be called their home track, Stafford Motor Speedway. This setup will be used: [wpfilebase tag=file id=2064 tpl=filebrowser /]. Modifieds run Friday night at 9:00 pm eastern.
Sunday night at 7:30 eastern, the Pro Street Stocks visit New Smyrna Speedway for a night race. Here’s the setup: [wpfilebase tag=file id=2065 tpl=filebrowser /].
For our feature race of the weekend, the Late Model Stock Cars head for the hills of Bristol, Tennessee to compete on the high banks in a night race. That session gets under way Sunday night at 9:00 pm. We will use this setup: [wpfilebase tag=file id=2066 tpl=filebrowser /]. Practicing for this race is a great idea. You really have to take it easy on the tires at Bristol.
