So it seems to me the default setup is super tight, enough grip in front to full throttle first few laps but super loose in rear. Anyone else done some practice with race settings to determine if lifting is necessary or is race pace going to be maintaining the slide? Feel like the snappy loose issues of Michigan will be back in full effect.

Pre race interview:

1. First 1.5 mile track of the season. Will this be a better race than Michigan or will it be more of the same?

2. Do you watch any of the other PRL series races on the broadcast?

3. What’s your favorite snack/candy?

1. Judging by how the track is driving, I'm expecting a race similar to Michigan. Hopefully everyone has got some practice in.

2. Not yet, but I plan on checking some of them out.

3. Tough choice...snickers?

- If people can be patient at the start, then it will be a great race. From what i have seen from the A class races though, probably will not be that way. Hope people area practicing!

2. Do you watch any of the other PRL series races on the broadcast?

- I have rewatched the michigan race and a couple others now that i know it exists.

3. What’s your favorite snack/candy?

- Tie between popcorn and beef jerky!

1. First 1.5 mile track of the season. Will this be a better race than Michigan or will it be more of the same? I think the setup will be more stable than Michigan but still a bit touchy. Guys might get over confident and abuse the tires early so we might see some strategy there.

2. Do you watch any of the other PRL series races on the broadcast? I haven’t yet but I’m interested in some of the F3 rounds.

3. What’s your favorite snack/candy? Hmmm. Beef Jerky or Rolos

1. I think we will be more spread out than Michigan just judging from the 2 races I've done this week. 

2. I usually race in Sundays and Wednesdays but will sometimes watch the broadcasts afterwards. I also sometimes watch the Thursday series.

3. Oreos. Gotta be double stuffed too.

Just like Michigan with less room on exit to control the slide, there will be letting off.

1. I'm thinking more of the same. Open lobby's have been pretty good, but we are still in a feeling out process here with guysvgett9ng use to each other.

2. I usually watch most of them after race to see other action on the track compared to where I was. Then I'll check out some of the other series as well to see how some of the oval guys cross over.

With only Charles missing tonight’s race, the only person below the cutoff line that has a spot so far is Collin Carroll. All others must wait to join until given permission

1) I think it will be a better race than Michigan, the setup doesnt seem as tight and it seems a bit more fair on the long run.

2) I have watched the trucks on Wednesday nights a few times.

3) Cheez-its

Extremely disappointed with tonight's race, and a few of you guys really need to calm down. I was hit 3 times by the first caution, luckily saved all 3, then just got absolutely killed by someone not slowing down with yellow already out and me calling it out. We're all here to have fun and it's no fun being put out every week due to poor decision making skills. I know you guys are going to do a good job officiating the offenses, but it's really up to us drivers to make a good race.
