1. I hope to just keep finishing races and keep it as clean as possible.

2. 2015 Dodge Ram is my daily drive.

3. I will here next season. I find that focusing on one series is best if you want to learn and get better.

Pre-race Interview

1 - 3 races left in the season, what are your expections for the reminder of the season?

Some top 5's would be great, but realistically I have to just run my own race. Sebring will be bad for me, I can't figure that one out.

2 - What is your real car model?

I have a '07 Mustang GT-CS, but don't drive it much with having a kid now. I have a 2010 Dodge Ram for daily driving and winter.

3 - Will you register for next season?

Absolutely. Lots of fun driving with you guys. I hope to have a more consistent season next time around.

1 - 3 races left in the season, what are your expectations for the remainder of the season?

Trying to put a few clean races together. I can push hard and get some good lap times but sometime I have trouble keeping it on the track.


2  -What is your real car model?

'70 Datsun 240Z. My dad was the original owner. It was his daily commuter for 30 years now it's my commuter.


3 - Will you register for the next season?

Yep absolutely. Right now the PM is the only car I drive. I enjoy the PRL season better then the Iracing PM season. Hopefully we can get some more drivers for next season.

Good race guys.  Was having a good race with Andrew for the first 20 or so laps, and ran 2 feet wide on the exit on turn 5 and lost control, towed to the pits.  Very frustrating, up to that point I had done a good job of just running my own pace and keeping it clean.  

I'm hoping these constant mistakes start to go away as I learn more tracks.  For the most part I have never drove around any of these tracks, so as time goes on I hope to get enough experience to become more consistent.  As long as you guys don't mind watching me careen off the track in the time being  :lol:

Yeah good race guys. I was having a fun back and forth battle with Kevin until I T-boned Ron when he was trying to recover from an off track. It was part my fault I should of done a better job trying avoid the contact.

It was funny I saw him on the grass up ahead and it was like in slow motion as he was coming across the track and I remember thinking to myself "S... I'm going to hit him". Right there I should of slowed down but it's so hard when your trying to push to take your foot off the gas. That's one part of the race craft I haven't learned yet is when to be fast and when to be a cautious. Luckily this is only a sim or Ron and I would be talking to you guys from the hospital  :shock:.

I'll cya guys next week at Texas!

Yea i was really disappointed when that happened we had a nice race going on up front.  There were sectors that you were faster and others where i was, it was a good back and forth.  

Lets hope we have a good one next week!

2 bad weeks in a row for me. 2 big crashes in the race, tried to get it fixed after using my fast repair. Got the car back on track with about 10 minutes to go in session but the wheel was at a 45 degree angle and I lost about 50k on top speed, so I just parked it. Hopefully next week will be a better result.

I forgot to do the pre-race interview, so I'll do a post-race :)

1. Still trying to find a full race rhythm. I find that the car changes balance a lot when it gets light on fuel. This makes me a lot less comfortable and causes mistakes. Always learning....that will be my goal for the rest of the season.

2. I have a small Chevy spark to get me to the train station every morning for work, but our family vehicle is a 2016 Yukon XL Denali. Great truck for my 4 kids and crap in the back.

3. I will certainly sign up. The racing here is fantastic...the people are so-so ;) I only have time for one series, and I might switch to the Ferrari GTE on Tuesday. Just need to try that car out to see if I like it.


As for the race, it was good for me. I had good pace and consistency, which was nice because I had none of that in Australia last week. Great battles with Matthew until his off, which was a shame because I was slowly gaining on him which would have set up a good finish.

This was my best finish yet (3rd), which I will take into next week.

I made a replay with the software that Dany used....I'll have to play around with the camera settings for next time because it seems to like Owen a little too much :)

iRacing Replay Director....ans you have to use a recording tool too... I use the one that comes with Geforce Experience, Shadowplay. It will do a full race replay and a 10 min recap, with all the graphic info.
