Pre Race Interview:

1. With how race 1 ended up, how are you feeling about Chicagoland?
I was out of town for that race but I heard about it. I think Chicago will be decent and spread out. 

2. Do you prefer a worn out track or a freshly repaved track?
New pavement = more grip. I'm a fan of grip.

3. Should we have a bounty system to make sure Brad Holly doesn't win again? If so, what should it be?
Buy him out with steaks and donuts. He'll cave eventually.

I feel like gateway takes a little more skill than Chicago and you have to be a lot more patient hopefully there are some longer runs
2. Do you prefer a worn out track or a freshly repaved track?
I think time will tell on that there are a lot of driving styles so getting them sorted out will be the key

3. Should we have a bounty system to make sure Brad Holly doesn't win again? If so, what should it be?

Let him go that’s half the fun figuring out how to beat that guy

Not a bad race last night. Some strange end of race calls that I benefitted from. FEG went 1/2. Cant complain.

Watching the broadcast, there was a lot of great action. Very well done last night gents, just need to do a bit better as a collective group to make sure we take away a couple more cautions and hit that lap count and not the time limit.

Here is the one thing I am going challenge the whole league with, and that's our performance under caution and on pit road. I ask that anyone who happens to be the leader to take to the coms and call out the pace car's positioning, or if we need to go around again to catch the pace car. Several times last night the field was way too spread out when it came to pacing and I think with some solid communication we can clean that up.

Then there was pit entry..... I know we don't have a limiter with these vehicles, but it was honestly very aggravating the unnecessary braking and just flat out going to slow on pit road. You dont have to hold the limit like you have cruise control, but we should all be able to hover within a few MPHs of the limit. 5MPH under is pushing it, 10MPH or more under is just uncalled for. Just keep this in mind please and lets not let something simple become an issue in the future.
