I sent money to sponsor the circuit.

If we are keeping it light, the circuit is sponsored by Erik Sucks at Team Speak.

Pre-Race Interview
1. Only 3 race left to the season, what are your goal for the last stint?

My goal for this race and the rest of the races this season is to finish inside the top 10.  The guys at the front are on a different level than me right now.  Since I have only been on Iracing two days before the Spa round, I have been gradually getting faster and more consistent.  Hopefully by this time next season I can try and show the leaders a wheel from time to time.    

2. Watkins Glen got a lot of version on its track, which one is your favorite and why?

I'm a big fan of the bus stop.  The required high speed precision makes it a challenge.


3. What kind of music are you listening!?

I have several playlists on my Pandora account.  Recently I've been rocking out to NIN.



Update:  This round the #9 car will sport a special primary sponsor, Team Speak!

wow, what a race ...I missed all of team practice sessions and Monday night PRL session. Lucky I know the glen good. Qualy in p8 felt good. Me and teammate traded paint too early but the car had good pace and for a change, I liked it just a little

Apologies to Christian - car hit wall and rolled back into track, tried getting it out of the way. Two guys got past me cleanly, but as I tried to move out of the way he came blind and got me - I was in the way. Lesson learned to keep watching relative and just hit esc.

Kelly, I appreciate your apologies, but sadly, they are useless when you ruin my race (and my tournament and our team tournament). If you lost the car you can't move until you have the time to recover it safely. You was 8 laps behind the leader, whats the point of continue blocking a put in danger to the others drivers? I really don't get it
Also, if you are not able to keep the car on track minimally, unfortunately you can not run, you are truly a danger on the track. This time I was the "lucky one".

I really hope that you could improve in iracing so that in addition to having fun racing, those who share track with you can have fun too.

ps: congrats Benjamin and Kenny (great pace kenny!) i should be completing the podium, but you know....Kelly crossed my path

At least Kelly apologized. I didn't get ****** from Carol who took me out after working my way to top 10 after my mistake.
