Good post, Bryan. I still remember our race in the Spec Ford at Barber Motorsports Park. That was some exciting racing!
Regarding an oval. I’m in in favor of it. But I am not willing to buy an oval for one race. Of the free ones that iRacing gives with a membership we have Lanier, South Boston, USA International, Charlotte, Concord, Oxford Plains and Thompson Speedway. Of that bunch, I feel USA International would be the better option.
We also have larger ovals which would allow for 100% throttle the entire race without lifting. Or mid size ovals with maybe some lifting. Charlotte, Daytona, Motegi, Phoenix 2008, Indianapolis, Monza and Auto Club Speedway.
