I hacked a quick video up of my POV of some of the cautions, just to show how lucky I got this race.  Seriously, I used up all my fortune for the rest of the season.  

DISCLAIMER:

I didn't make this to complain about anyone or anything.  Cautions happen, this is a really tough track to "keep it together" on.  Just wanted you all to see the exact moments that I needed a change of shorts!  

By my rough count we had 9 cautions.  I left out the ones where I saw nothing infront of me.  Our best run was from lap 57 to 103, so a nice 46 lap run.  

Call it netcode, sync, lag/connection issues, but it was to blame for several of these crashes tonight, so I dont think we should feel bad about the #

And lastly, to quote Owen

Bristol! Bristol! Bristol!
I know it sounds crazy but I tested there and it was a blast. You can go flat out in fifth gear using the Iracing Oval default.  I think with this group it would be a lot of fun.

It sounds crazy Owen.  Very crazy. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lol!

I'll take the whipping for this week. I had no idea the netcode/lag/whatever was going to be that awful. It was definitely a fun challenge though!

I had a blast even though I wrecked myself. Half of the fun is racing with a good group of guys.

Had a good run at the front, not sure how I managed fastest lap but I will take it!
