1. This week, we are at Martinsville for our first short track race of the season. Do you enjoy watching or racing on short tracks?

2. Last week we had alot of people call it correctly as Larson as the favorite in Auto Club. Who do you have this week? Any confidence about the car you drive in the league?

3. MLB The Show came out this week, which several league drivers are getting their jollies off right now. What new game out there has your attention?

I love short track racing, but not a fan of Martinsville to be honest. I love Bristol and Richmond, really miss Rockingham being on the schedule. Also grew up spending many of Saturday nights in the stands at my local 1/3 mile dirt track. This is by far my worst track in this game. I'll be thankful if I can sneak out a Top 10.

2. Last week we had alot of people call it correctly as Larson as the favorite in Auto Club. Who do you have this week? Any confidence about the car you drive in the league?
I don't want to, but I don't see how you can pick anyone but Shrub for this week. Ave finish of 3rd, with 3 Top 5s and a win in the last 2 years. As for the #24 car, Chase has a small, unimpressive sample size when it comes to Martinsville. I wouldn't be surprised if him and I both have lackluster weekends.

3. MLB The Show came out this week, which several league drivers are getting their jollies off right now. What new game out there has your attention?
I am only racing at the moment. Between the PRL Nascar, F1 and ProjCars leagues, I am using any free time I have on the PS4 to practice for the next race. But when I do get some spare time over the summer, I'll be catching up on Mass Effect.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I love short track racing and Martinsville even more. It's without a doubt my favorite track. (Besides Eldora) I love the way you have to always fight one part of the corner whether it's tight center Loose Exit you're always fighting it along with the other competitors. It makes for a challenge and the person who can manage their car the best will be the one who walks away victorious.[/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Well, this might be a little far fetched to a lot of people, but I believe, Bowyer could pull something out and break through. He showed very good speed last weekend and that confidence has to go along way. Not to mention, Bowyer absolutely loves Martinsville. But as for my No. 20 Dollar General Toyota Camry, the guys at Forward Byte have prepared me a real fast car and I'm looking forward to the race. [/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I only race. I don't play MLB or Madden or anything. I sometimes like to take a moment to relax and play a fun game of Rocket League, but that's about it. Also, while it's not a "new" game, I recently bought iRacing and have grown to love it and feel it will help in NASCAR Heat Evolution. [/font]

I do like watching and racing short tracks, but Martinsville is closer to the bottom of the list.  I think every position will be important as passing will be not as easy as the other tracks so far.

[font=Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]I'm going to take Hamlin this week he has some past success, and probably thinks this will get [/font][font=Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]the season going.  Bowyer, I had last week and think he topped out around 3rd, he's got a good chance to get up there again.[/font]

[font=Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]I'm just on racing right now.  I'm really only looking forward to the new racing games to come this year and next.[/font]

1. I love short track racing and I like it on the game. I'm not the greatest at it but I love the intensity of it.

2. I think it will be anyone out of the Hendrick camp they always run their best at Martinsville.

3. The current game that has my attention is Horizon Zero Dawn, I can't even put into words on how great it is. A couple of games have got my attention that haven't released yet, those being Crash Bandicoot, Project Cars 2, the new NASCAR game, and I think that's it at the moment.

Q: 16
No speed. I tried out a new setup was too tight. Couldn't find the lane to run with it. Just terrible performance.

R: 15 (DC)
My car continued to suck and never got any better which explains why I was already 4 laps down when I dced just halfway through the race. See you all in Texas, hopefully with a better race car.

Q: 10

R: 10 Instantly noticed track felt different online then the standard single player race. I'll take a 10th wasnt much better than a 7th place car.

Q:8th I couldn't quite hit the flats I was hitting all week but I was happy with a top 10 qualifying spot

R:1st I bounced around from 5th-10th all night, it seemed like each time I make it into the top 5 I'd get run up on the track. I had gambled at the end of the race pushing my fuel as much as possible to make it on just one stop. The strategy would have worked great and I would have finished top 2 as everyone but jobes and I had to pit twice. A late caution came out and I fought my way past Aaron and Jobes for the win.
