  • Brooks Westfall
    Silver Crown Writer

    I've been sim racing since 2011 when I joined iRacing. I've jumped to many different sims, including rFactor, Richard Burns Rally, and the famous NASCAR Racing 2003. I picked up a copy of NR2003 with my birthday money when I was only 9, but was limited to a keyboard and a controller. After reciving a G25 for Christmas in '11, I've loved sim racing and the community iRacing has. I hope to end up writing for a car magazine or website in the near future, and intend on attending university to accomplish that.
    Aside from my career in sim racing and the real world, I hope to have my own small, yet functional race team soon with the purchace of a go kart. Since I'm currently residing in Maryland, I don't have a wide range of racing to choose from. My only options on a small budget are drag racing or kart racing. After the completion of my senior year in high school next year, I hope that inRacing News and other affiliates will help my dreams of writing for Road & Track become a reality!

Bieri Repeats as Mustang Champ in Final Series Season

by Jeff Jacobs on July 24th, 2014

107
Patrick Bieri is only the second sim-racer to earn back-to-back Championships in the 16-season history of the iRacing.com Mustang Challenge.

Patrick Bieri mounted a come-from-behind charge through the points standings in the final season of the iRacing.com Mustang Challenge to repeat as Champion in the pony-car series. In a points battle that remained close into the final two weeks of sim-racing, Bieri went on to win 19 of the 21 races he entered during the 12-week season and never finished out of the top five. Bieri is only the second competitor in the series’ history to earn back-to-back Mustang Challenge Championships – a feat accomplished twice by Dariusz Bielawski. The series comes to an end after 16 seasons, with the Mustangs being moved to an exciting new multi-class iRacing.com Grand Touring Cup series that includes the VW Jetta and Pontiac Solstice. The competition at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in the [...]

Kellermeier, Abbate, Chepilevski Early Favorites in Global Challenge Series Championship

by Jonathan Wimbush on March 4th, 2014

313
Lyle Kellermeier (#6) and Robert Ganley (#2) are consistent front runners.

Welcome to 2014 Season One coverage of the Global Challenge Series. Drivers are battling it out this week at Road Atlanta, and a couple of drivers are looking to make it a break-out season in the Cadillac CTS-V and KIA Optima. In the Cadillacs, Lyle Kellermeier has topped the score charts each week this sea son. Last season’s second place finisher in the overall championship, Kellermeier has improved each year in the Global Challenge Series since its inception during 2013 Season Two. That season he finished 14th, but managed to climb to third place overall by the end of 2013 Season Three. Last season culminated with him sitting only 76 points behind two time defending champion Michael Engelage. If Kellermeier can continue to notch top finishes each week in points, [...]

Dariusz Bielawski Wins Third Mustang Title in 2013

by Jeff Jacobs on January 22nd, 2014

120
In a points battle that went down to the wire, Dariusz Bielawski took a 50-point margin of victory to claim his third Championship in four seasons in 2013.

It had been twelve thrilling weeks of bumper-to-bumper Mustang sim-racing, but it all came down to the last official races on the last day of the last week to decide the iRacing.com Mustang Cup Season 4 Championship. Coming into the final week Dariusz Bielawski held a narrow 58-point lead over Patrick Bieri, who had occupied the top spot for seven of the first ten weeks. Adding to the tension, Season 2 Champion Todd Honczarenko was only four points behind Bieri. Due to travel for a pre-scheduled vacation, Bielawski would be unable to make an appearance in Week 12 to defend his position from Bieri and Honczarenko. The two challengers practiced hard and turned in blistering qualifying times in preparation for the big strength-of-field (SOF) races of the week – typically [...]

Binder Remains On Throne With Eighth iSCS Championship

The last time we checked in with the iRacing.com Sprint Car Series, four weeks remained in the second season of 2013. Sprint car veterans Vinnie Sansone and Fred Lampela were almost in a dead heat at the top of the championship standings, and quite a rivalry had developed between the two during their battles. Defending champion Alan Binder was still mathematically in the hunt if his performance stayed the course as the last few seasons, but he still had a lot of ground to cover in order to catch up to Sansone and Lampela. Without a doubt, the championship would be handed out to one of these three drivers, and none of them would go down without a hard fight – such is the display of any champion material. New [...]

Week 12 Michigan P1

The final week of Season Two of the NASCAR iRacing Class C Fixed Series heads to one of the most popular tracks on the iRacing service in Michigan International Speedway. While the 2-mile oval packs just 18 degrees of banking, its long straights and sweeping turns make it a favorite among many racers in the iRacing community. 2,141 sim racers took the green flag for at least one race during the week, all with one goal in mind—get to the checkered flag first and drive into victory lane and be showered with virtual champagne which is located in the frontstretch grass. Someone who is no stranger to being soaked in champagne (virtual or real) is NASCAR iRacing Series World Championship competitor Jon Adams (Georgia) who was able to make a [...]

Humpe Does It Again

Week 12 Chicagoland Fixed P1

Week 12 of the NASCAR iRacing.com Class C Series pays a visit to Chicagoland Speedway for 70 laps of high speed action around the 1.5-mile speedway. Over 700 sim racers partisicpated in at least one event during the seven days of online racing, but after the smoke settled, a familiar face to victory lane emerged to claim the top spot for the week. Kenny Humpe (Ohio) made an incredible 24 starts during the week, earning top five finishes in 23, and claiming 18 victories, all while earning 185 championship points. Kollin Keister (Atlantic) ended the week in the second position, earning 182 points after starting 12 races throughout the week. Nicholas Goertzen (Canada) made two starts during the week, claiming one victory, and netting 178 total points. Tom Moustakas (New [...]

Moustakas & Humpe Master Darlington

Week 2 Darlington Open P1

Week Two of the NASCAR iRacing.com Class C Series (open setup) is arguably the most difficult week of the season. The series pays a visit to the track too tough to tame in Darlington Raceway for some beating, banging, and undoubtedly, some arguing. Over 400 sim racers took the green flag for at least one race during the week and it’s safe to bet that a majority of them weren’t happy with their results. Even though a lot the racers probably weren’t happy, there were at least two people happy after a long, long week of online racing. Last season’s champion Kenny Humpe (Ohio) returned to form this week as he took the checkered flag in dominating fashion over teammate Nick Neben (Plains) by 18.087 seconds in a caution free [...]

Scribner Scores Big at Kentucky

Week 1 Kentucky Open P1

A new season is upon us on the iRacing.com service and that means thousands of drivers with many great opportunities. Some drivers hope of taking their Silverado to victory lane as many times as possible, while others search for top five finishes. However, there are a select few who look to leave the ultimate mark and win the Season One championship. Nearly 850 sim racers took the green flag during Week One of the NASCAR iRacing.com Class C Series (open setup) at Kentucky Speedway located in Sparta, Kentucky. The 1.5-mile D-shaped oval is unlike many other speedways on the NASCAR circuit. Its bumps and abrasive surface cause havoc for many drivers, making this racing venue a favorite for those who love a challenge and the least favorite for others. Texan [...]

Binder Celebrates Sixth Consecutive iSCS Championship

January 30th, 2013

irwindale_alan

With four weeks remaining in the iRacing.com Sprint Car Series, time was running out for those jockeying for position in the points chase. Defending champion Alan Binder was still on top, over 100 points separating himself and second place; a safe margin by all standards. However, with four drop weeks available for those that race the full season, the separation between gold, silver, and bronze was still to be decided. Could Binder break even more ground in the iRacing record books by winning his sixth championship in a row? Week 9 featured a stop at the famous half-mile oval of New Smyrna Speedway. Always a track tough to tame for sprint regulars, six official races took place during the week after Christmas. After grabbing the fastest qualifying time, Binder followed [...]

As the old saying goes, “all good things must come to an end”. After twelve weeks of online racing, Season Four 2012 comes to a conclusion as the checkered flag falls at Chicagoland Speedway. Opening in 2001, Chicagoland Speedway has played host to many races in the top three series throughout its history. Names such as Gordon, Stewart, Earnhardt, and Keselowski have all made visits to victory lane at Chicago. Over 1,000 sim racers tried to add their name to the list of winners, but a few familiar faces visited the winner’s circle during the final week of action in the NASCAR iRacing.com Class C Series (open setup). Nick Neben (Plains) put his Silverado in the right place at the right time during this week’s high Strength of Field, which [...]

Formula 1 teams are still in the dark about how much it will cost them to enter next year’s world championship, despite the FIA publishing its Sporting Regulations on Thursday .
