Man that was a crazy race last night. The first 6 laps or so were REALLY intense. I could feel something building because we just weren’t getting any separation from the pack and I figured at some point something was going to happen. So I eased up on lap 8, slowed my run down the front straight and whamo!!! there was some smoke and spinning ahead of me! I’m sure it was Randy’s fault! LOL I know he was in it because his car was JACKED after it. He’s had all sorts of bad luck this series. I think its all gone to me because I’ve been doing pretty well this series.
After the caution I was behind Jon and Jeff with Sloan hot on my heels. Sloan fought hard and got by me. It was an awesome move and I had to really battle to get it back. I caught Jeff and we ran side by side for a corner or two but being the gracious lover he is he didn’t battle too hard and I chased down Jon. Jon can make a car really wide, that’s for sure. I’m glad he didn’t use his B button though and I was able to get by him.
Allen had picked up some damage and ended up fighting Jon really hard. I was glad for this as they were BOTH catching me at the end.
Fun race guys! Contrats to the rest of the podium.January 22, 2016 at 12:08 am #2604
Nice win Bryan!
I really enjoyed the race! I was surprised to see myself near the front by the time the caution flew. I had a great time battling it out and getting some positions, having some great battles with Russ, Sloan and other. Wasn’t expecting to finish on the podium, thinking I didn’t have the pace to get there. Bryan, you really earned that win. I think I ended up making my car much wider for Allen at the end. He finally got by me on the second to last lap but on the last lap I got past him again some how. Such a good race! I was happy to escape the mayhem and damage this time!!January 25, 2016 at 4:11 pm #2615
This weeks race should be exciting. Twin Ring Motegi West is tiny! I can’t imagine we won’t be wheel to wheel the entire race. One slip up and you could end up a lap down. I’m sure there will be some thrown headsets this week.January 26, 2016 at 2:48 pm #2617
That’ll be a blast of a track. We ALMOST got an oval race in this Skip Barber series by including this track.January 27, 2016 at 8:38 am #2618
if by oval you mean two straights and two crashy corners with some twisty bits you are correct!
We ran some last night and it was very interesting, I full expect to be involved in something tonight. It was pretty damn fun though with not too many places to pass, except the back straight which creates an awesome opportunity to go “3 wide suicide” into the last set of corners.
And it’s anniversary night!January 27, 2016 at 12:56 pm #2624
There WILL be happenings tonight, I have no doubt.
It will be an intense 30 min.January 27, 2016 at 2:50 pm #2627
I changed my mind, I dont expect to be involved in anything. This should be easy lots of grip in the grass.February 2, 2016 at 11:10 am #2632
So I am glad I changed my mind last week and decided not to get involved in any shinanigans. I just let the fast dudes go by and saved any battle for position for later in the race.February 4, 2016 at 3:15 pm #2637
So last night was a pretty entertaining race these small tracks and slow cars seem to keep the pack close. The caution doesn’t hurt either. I had some good battles with almost everyone throughout the race at one time or another. These kind of inclusive battles have renewed my interest a bit in iracing.
I come in contact with Dan a bit usuing both the front and back of my car and for that I appologize but we had good run too. I felt like I either lost my tires or was overdriving (most-likely) near the end.February 29, 2016 at 8:13 pm #2653
