The seasons end and Half Life 3 confirmed….

November 18th, 2015 by

This is always kind of a depressing time of the year for me because winter is literally only weeks away and all the real world racing series are finishing up their seasons. I am excited though to be heading to Homestead on Friday to celebrate our NASCAR Peak Antifreeze  Series champion Kenny Humpe and get … Read the Rest »

Let’s talk about hot rubber…

September 2nd, 2015 by

Time. You never seem to have enough of it and it moves much faster than you can imagine. I can give you some funny lines about why it has been so long since I have last written one of these blogs, but the straight truth is that I just haven’t had the time! We are so … Read the Rest »

Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster do exist

June 27th, 2014 by

Let’s just get the bad news out of the way right away. Driver swaps WILL NOT be in the Season 3 build. Take a minute to go file a protest, punch a wall, crush a six pack or whatever else you need to do to get that frustration out of your system. Then come back … Read the Rest »

Tyler Hudson’s NASCAR iRacing Championship Blog

December 27th, 2013 by

What’s it like to be a NASCAR Champion?  Let’s back up a little bit first.  I remember sitting at my PC a few years ago and watching as Richard Towler walked onto the stage at Homestead Miami to receive his NASCAR Series World Championship check of $10,000.  Then, watching him walk into the media … Read the Rest »

What has happened to road racing in America?

September 5th, 2013 by

Last weekend two of the largest American racing series brought their haulers and million dollar race cars to the racing center of the world – Baltimore, MD. Funny thing is that no one seemed to care. The few overhead shots broadcast on TV showed more unoccupied seats than occupied for both the ALMS and the … Read the Rest »

1967: The Summer of Lo…tus 49

July 16th, 2013 by

There were a lot of places where people were loving the summer of 1967, but the cockpit of an F1 car with a brand new 3-liter engine was not one of them.  The engine formula had just been changed in 1966 to allow 3 liters of displacement, up from 1.5 liters in previous years.  1967 … Read the Rest »

Bucket List

June 25th, 2013 by

Not unlike A Prairie Home Companion’s Guy Noir, I continue my search for the answers to life’s persistent questions, first and foremost among them: Is the bucket half empty or half full?  In this case, the bucket is my personal bucket list of motorsports events I’d love to see at least once in my time … Read the Rest »

Disguised Honeymoon

June 17th, 2013 by

There are times in a guy’s life that he would classify as defining moments: Riding your bike for the first time without training wheels, your first kiss, going to your first major sporting event, getting married, the birth of your firstborn. This is a story of just such an event. The concept of a pilgrimage … Read the Rest »

Still The Same as it Ever Was

May 24th, 2013 by

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 22nd, 2013 by

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 »
