  • 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!

    Ray Kingsbury is a motorsport enthusiast and full-time university student, born and raised in Connecticut. He started his own racing career in BMX, riding bicycles competitively on the state level. In eight years he claimed the state championship and was ranked nationally before moving away from the sport. This void of activities led him to rediscover sim-racing in the form of NASCAR Heat. After a championship in the game's most competitive league Kingsbury started focusing full-time on his involvement in Live for Speed. There he founded Last Lap Motorsports which today has more than 20 members worldwide.

    When a few Last Lap Motorsports members decided to give iRacing.com a chance to feed their desire for more oval racing, Ray teamed with his brother Matt, Nathan Lamothe and newcomer Jimmie Jones to enter the ETV! Live Team Series and claimed the title after a dominating performance at Watkins Glen. To this day the team continues in both Live for Speed and iRacing.com and Ray still takes much delight in his own sim-racing career. A reporter for his high school newspaper before moving to university, Kingsbury keeps-up his writing activities by contributing to iRacing News.

Holgate Dominates at Road America

Tim Holgate was finally able to end his string of bad luck in the penultimate round of the 16th St Racing League from Road America, by taking a dominant victory. The Panther Racing driver looked dominant from the outset, leading the majority of the race and setting a total of seven laps in the 40 lap event that would have been fast enough to qualify him in pole position. This victory was tempered in some way however due to the fact his closest road course rival, Josh Chin was forced to be absent from the race, ending his championship charge, and making the job of closing off the championship easier for Matt Cooke. There was still a job to be done for Cooke however, as a crash would open the [...]

Thanks to the World Tour of iRacing’s first doubleheader, more than 40 sim-racers added their names to the ranks of winners in the Third Annual iRacing.com Indianapolis 500 and the inaugural iRacing.com World 600 last weekend.

Ou (20) battled friend/teammate Doyle for the IZOD IndyCar Premier Series Oval title.

Dario Franchitti or Will Power?  Who will wear the mantle of 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series champion?  We won’t know for sure until the conclusion of Sunday’s IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but the identity of one 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series champion is already certain.  That would be 22 year old Yang Ou, winner of both the iRacing.com IZOD IndyCar Premier Series Oval and Road Racing competition and, as such, iRacing’s overall IndyCar champion.  And the spoils of his many online racing victories include a cash prize and a trip to Las Vegas for the 2011 IZOD Indy Car Series finale.

A Brand New Name in IndyCars

Brand has driven the Livestrong Dallara to third place on the ovals of the iRacing.com IZOD IndyCar Premier Series.

Monica Clara Brand’s name may not be quite as familiar to IndyCar fans as those of Sarah Fisher and Danica Patrick, but she has much in common with them.  Like Fisher she has qualified on the pole for an IndyCar race . . . 30 by actual count.  And, like Patrick, she has finished an IndyCar race in Victory Lane.  In fact, Brand has more than 25 wins to her credit from MIS to Iowa to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. What distinguishes Brand’s racing career from those of Fisher and Patrick is that all of her IndyCar success has come in a digitized Dallara on the virtual race tracks of iRacing.com.   In fact, the 34 year old resident of Bucharest, Romania has never even attended a “real world” IZOD IndyCar [...]
