A Golden Weekend

June 12, 2013, No Comments

Victory donuts at I44

In racing there are good weekends, there are great weekends, and seldom, there are the unreal golden weekends.  I can’t say there’s been much reflecting over the last 24 hours because, well, there’s hasn’t been much to reflect on.  I had a golden weekend, without a doubt the best weekend of my racing career, and … Read the Rest »

Self Improvement

June 7, 2013, No Comments

Road racing was the only form of racing that I knew for the first eight years of my career.  Even though I was an avid NASCAR fan as a kid, always watching the races and playing the video games, I got my start in Karts.  They taught me everything I knew as far as racecraft, … Read the Rest »

Still The Same as it Ever Was

May 24, 2013, 1 Comment

The Indianapolis 500 may have lost some of its luster in recent years – remember when the world’s second largest single day sporting event (after the Indy 500 itself) was Pole Day?  Still, when it comes to sports events, it’s hard to match the goings-on at Georgetown and 16th Street for sheer drama.   Whether you … Read the Rest »

V8 Supercars Visit the Surface of the Sun

May 22, 2013, 8 Comments


Well maybe that was a bit dramatic for the title on my recap of my visit to Austin, Texas for the V8 Supercars race at the Circuit of the Americas, but it does convey how bloody hot it was.  Sean Siff and I headed south for the Austin 400 and even though I was born … Read the Rest »

Blowing off a Little Steam

April 2, 2013, 51 Comments


I can’t remember the last time a staff forum post caused so much angst. Asking members to vote for iRacing on Steam’s Project Greenlight sure brought-out some opinions. It seems as if members are either very much for it or very much against it. I can’t understand why you would be against it, but you … Read the Rest »

A Day in the Life of a Cat Herder: XVII

February 6, 2013, 37 Comments

Chevy SS

Monday morning after the Super Bowl is always an interesting day.  I always kind of feel like I fought someone and I didn’t come out the winner.  All the crappy food I ate all night comes back to haunt me like 12 rounds of solid body shots from a heavy weight fighter.  The beer doesn’t … Read the Rest »

Protests: By the Numbers

August 16, 2012, 45 Comments Shannon Whitmore

The racing environment is unique to other competitive sports in that a measure of cooperation must exist amongst the competitors in order to reach the end of the race and accomplish a goal.   For most the goal is getting to the end of the race with a chance to win or finish well.  But what … Read the Rest »

A Day in the Life of a Cat Herder: XVI

August 13, 2012, 74 Comments

Writing this, I have a feeling similar to the one you get when you show up to a wedding or party and see that very close friend who you have been horribly bad at staying in touch with.  So let me just get it over with:  I am sorry it has been so long since … Read the Rest »

4 Biggest Racing Crashes Of 2012

July 10, 2012, 6 Comments

We’re nearly halfway through the 36 race schedule of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2012 season, and so far things, have been pretty routine. The usual leaders are doing well, and the usual losers are, well, still losing for the most part. One of the most newsworthy trends is the absence of noteworthy crashes. Theories … Read the Rest »
