Comments about Last Week’s Super Late Model Race
It was a difficult car on a difficult track and the setup wasn’t very good. There were a lot of incidents and a lot of cautions. I don’t think there was a single driver who drove anything close to a perfect race.
If you don’t feel comfortable with your ability to control this car in racing situations, you need to ride out the laps and use it as a practice situation. It’s good practice to run with other cars racing on the track, but you don’t need to be trying to race anybody. The fact is, some people get it faster than others. Some people practice more than others.
Speaking of practice, drivers who are having difficulties with car control need to get in test sessions or official practices, whatever it takes, and get some practice. Some people don’t have a lot of time but you need to try to make a little time until you learn better car control. I’m not pointing any fingers because I’m in the same boat as some of you. I can’t control the Super. I ride and try to stay out of the way and use the laps to learn. I’m not trying to beat anybody, just trying to learn.
In the races coming up this week: If any driver calls out another driver, argues, blames, calls names or even criticizes another driver in any way during the race session before looking carefully at a replay, that driver will be suspended for one race. After you look at the replay, you’re welcome to discuss the incident(s) like adults. What you do on your own time is your business, but what you do in league sessions or the league Discord server is mine. If you want to go argue in iRacing PM you can do that, but keep in mind that iRacing PMs are protestable and iRacing will suspend you for sending nasty PMs.
Wednesday, the SK Modifieds head south to another great short asphalt track that often features side by side racing, New Smyrna Speedway. It’s a 60 lap morning race for the Modifieds. The session gets under way at 8:30 pm.
The Late Models will be at another great short/intermediate sized track: USA International Speedway. That’s a 60 lap night race. That session gets started at 9:30 pm.
Coming up Friday night, it’s another big night of racing in the 360 Sprint Cars at Volusia Speedway. This will be a 35 lap night race. This has grown to be the most fun series in the OSR line-up so far with close, clean racing each and every week. The 360 session starts at 7:30 pm.
After the 360s, the 410 Sprint Cars pound the clay at Volusia Speedway. These cars are a handful at Volusia, so practice would be a good idea. The session starts at 9:00 pm.
Moving on to Sunday night, we’re running the Pro Late Models at 7:30 and the Super Late Models at 9:00 pm. Volusia speedway is the venue for those races. Again, we all need to practice for these races.
All times are US eastern.
Here are the setups for each race.
