Pre Race Interview:

1. The plate track for the season, do you enjoy plate racing?

2. Will we hit the laps or the time this race?

3. Do you use any hardware or software to help with your sim racing?

1. The plate track for the season, do you enjoy plate racing? I usually don’t enjoy plate racing simply cuz there are so many things out of your control but hopefully this will be a mild race

2. Will we hit the laps or the time this race?
I would definately say time will be the issue

3. Do you use any hardware or software to help with your sim racing?
The only thing I use to help is sim racing apps for the pit timer

Eh. I'm not a huge fan of plate racing. It's a gamble. Whether or not you make it through the big one is the question. I always seem to get caught in them

I think there will be two cautions. One that takes out a large clump of trucks causing everyone to calm down, and one at the finish when things get rowdy again. So I think well get it done before time runs out.

I only use Z1 dashboard running on a tablet that acts as a 4th monitor.

Pre Race Interview:

1. The plate track for the season, do you enjoy plate racing?
Yes i do, its fun and stressful. just waiting for the destruction.

2. Will we hit the laps or the time this race?
0% chance we hit the laps this week. This week is a big reminder to R E L A X!!! SIDE DRAFT IS NOT A THING IN THIS SIM. leave room and for the love of god respect the net code. there should be no reason in a race like this we dont hit the laps but you can promise we wont.

3. Do you use any hardware or software to help with your sim racing?
SIMapps and SimHub

1. I do as long as everyone understands they're not Dale Jr.

2. No.  People think there's a side draft in the sim still.  

3. Nope.

1. I have a love/hate with it. 4 of my 15 PRL wins have been on plate tracks, but I absolutely hate pack racing since skill can put you in position, but luck can take you right out of it.

2. I think there is a chance to hit the lap counter, but unfortunately I think that will be due to a big accident taking out alot of trucks.

3. Kapps and CrewChief for software. No hardware yet, though a button box will be in my future.

1. It depends for the most part, but as its probably my only shot to win, then I like it

2. If we have a big one early, I think well make it

3. Sim Racing Apps and a pitbox

1. I love restrictor plate racing, but unless it's a small lead pack it's a guaranteed wreck across the line.

2. Timer all the way, these caution laps are slow.

3. Crew chief, and for hardware a nice maple handled finishing hammer to throw at the wall when I get involved in a crash.

1. The plate track for the season, do you enjoy plate racing?
I enjoy the close "combat" racing as long as everyone holds there line and is considerate to not cause the "big one"

2. Will we hit the laps or the time this race?
We will if we have an early big one if not then it will be close.

3. Do you use any hardware or software to help with your sim racing?
I do not yet, I am still a rookie to Iracing so if anyone has any suggestions find me in the trailer sometime during race day to talk.

Hello Everyone - just wanted to apologize for causing that caution on the pit entry. Used too much brake locked it up and feel very bad about how my car came back up and ruined some good racing and also caused a bunch of bogus black flags and made some people have to go to the back. Taking the full blame on it and again just wanted to apologize for the incident.

Hey Everyone. I apologize for initiating the Big One on lap 40. I got loose and caught it and Sean and others paid the price for my mistake. I am owning responsibility for that one and again, apologize to all those effected.

Just a true Daytona style race, action was good lots of give and take.  Cautions breed cautions here just like we see on Sundays,  good overall race and exciting finish.
