    contributing writer

    I began taking sim racing seriously about a year ago, but have loved motorsports from a young age. I began following Formula One first, then realized there are a huge variety of motorsports to watch. iRacing has opened my eyes even more to the diversity and volume of “real world” motorsports, let alone on the sim itself. With the huge varieties of series to choose from, you're spoiled for choice!

    Ever since I began iRacing, I wanted to improve on my ability, be it road or oval. Having not really heard about oval racing prior to November last year (blame the UK press), my mentality towards it has totally changed from what it would have initially been - it's awesome! I recently began road racing again - in the Star Mazda - and have been having a blast ever since. On top of racing the series I have the privilege of writing the articles for iRacing News.

    In all honesty I have surprised myself on iRacing. From being a fairly casual gamer/racer, it's been a world of difference, but it has far exceeded my expectations. I had a very brief stint driving in rFactor leagues, but I found my place of sim racing on this service, and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon.

What Does the End of Week 12 Mean in the NASCAR iRacing Series?

by James Falcon Pratt on May 27th, 2015

Falcon CMS2

Short answer?  It means we have completed one third of the season, and run the Daytona 500 and the longest sim race of the season, the Coke 600. If my math holds up we have been scheduled to run 3,201 miles over 2,247 laps. Google Maps tells me that’s the number of miles covered by a drive from Los Angeles to Bangor, Maine; a cross country trip that would take 47 hours and cross 15 states, eight of which I have visited. What makes the first third of the season so very different from the second third of the season? What makes the first third of the season so very different from the second third of the season? This is best answered by starting with which of the dozen races [...]

NASCAR for the Masses Brought to Us by iRacing

Rubbin's racing' when the NASCAR Xfinity Chevy Camaros and Ford Mustangs get together in the NASCAR iRacing Class B Series.

Since opening its virtual doors nearly seven years ago, iRacing has brought the many worlds of NASCAR to the masses all around the world. As you start your sim racing life you learn car control, track types and racing with others all around you on the track. The rookie level has changed in the nearly four years that I have been a part of iRacing, but the basics will always be the same. Depending on when you started you drove the Street Stock or the Legends cars first then advanced to the other. These two race cars drive very differently, but the basics are a part of each of them. Rookie Class Today you start with the Street Stocks, a car you may have raced on local tracks. Maybe it [...]

NASCAR Takes a Week Off

Charlotte ? laps, 600 miles of fun.

The Coke 600 is the next points race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule, so NASCAR iRacing Series competitors will run the full 600 miles at the famous Charlotte Motor Speedway next week. This means we will run 400 laps on a track that can provide some of the best racing in NASCAR and some of the best sim racing anywhere. In the past three season we have run five races here and my team has come home with a top five and three top tens (fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth) and only once did we fall outside the top 10 with an 11th place finish in the second race in 2014. The track is clean and smooth – if you don’t over-drive it — and  tire wear is low [...]

Bontempi Takes Checkered & iSS Chase Berth Following Penalties to Bontempi and Roy

Matt Bontempi (foreground), slides through the grass P3 after leading out of the final turn, as Frank Buccialia and Robby Roy (background) cross the line first and second. The win would later go to Bontempi after both the #94 and #14 were penalized.

There was no question it would be a historical evening in the iSuperSpeedway.com Racing Series, when the series debuted at the Daytona circa 2007 circuit for the first time. Ever since the Season 4 schedule was released late in the chase for the Season 3 championship, this date on the calendar remained one of the most talked about story lines, even with a head to head championship battle in progress. The Daytona circa 2007 track on the iRacing simulation is the Daytona International Speedway as it was when it was first scanned into the sim in 2007. This meaning that this track, which is now no longer used for official series racing, was the only DIS to race on for the longest time as it was accurate to the real [...]

Greatness and Not So Greatness

Greatness and Not So Greatness

NASCAR iRacing Series Week 8 at Bristol was one of Greatness and not so Greatness. Wednesday we ran the first of the Open races and it went well, no yellows as I came around to complete Lap Five.  A short time later I found I had completed eight laps . . . and had 31 minutes of repairs. A handful of cars had planted themselves across the track and I had no place to go but through them. The team worked on the car as I grabbed a bite to eat and when they called me back I was a good 85 or so laps down and in 26th place. But I was not the only one to have issues; it is Bristol after all! I came out with my [...]

Thrilling Start to 2nd AMGSC Season

DeVriese, #1, steals the win from Kane, #79, in a dead heat.

The second season of the Autobahn Motorcar Group Sportscar Challenge kicked-off on Monday night at Daytona International Speedway. With a packed grid of 43 drivers, the race was always going to be a thriller. However, few could have predicted just how hard and how close the sim racing would be. Reigning Prototype champion John Ulmer put his HPD on pole position for the 90-minute event and set the early pace ahead of Jason DeVriese and Danny Kane. Despite Ulmer’s convincing qualifying time, the long straightaways allowed DeVriese and Kane to get a tow from and keep pace with the leader. When Ulmer made an error exiting Turn 1 on the fourth lap, DeVriese and Kane pounced. The trio continued to battle hard as they began catching traffic from the slower [...]

The Xtrememotorsports99.com Continental Tire Road Series features the MX-5 in the ST class and the Mustang FR500S in the GS class, providing great mixed-class racing at popular tracks mirroring the real life series.  GS class leaders Liam Hackwith (#23) and Kevin Ford (#32) pick their way through an intense ST class battle between Erik Dalla Riva (#74) and Brian Bennett (#58).

NASCAR iRacing Series Diary: Auto Club Speedway

Falcon Racing enjoyed a good week in the NASCAR iRacing Series at Auto Club Speedway, with a 12th place in the Open and a fourth place in the Fixed. We even lead two laps in the Fixed, adding to the two laps we lead at Daytona back in Week 1. The setup was good for a fixed setup and drivers could find different lines based on driving styles. We were running four, five and even six lines through both sets of corners and even down the front straight. At times we would be three wide down the back straight. The open setups were even more interesting with some running right at the wall and others on the white line as well as any of the four lanes in-between. Both of [...]

From A Dig Motorsports’ “Tough Trucks” – Bump Drafting… Again!

by Scott Smith on March 23rd, 2015

Bump drafting is back.

As the Earth continues to orbit around our sun, she begins to tilt about on her axis, and point in a more direct manner towards the heart of our solar system.  With this seemingly incomprehensible act of the heavens comes change.  Spring is in the air (at least in north of the Equator). Critters begin to come out of hibernation, the grass turns a vibrant green, and beautiful flowers begin to bloom. In the virtual world of iRacing, a cycle of change has also dawned.  Not only are us iRacers beginning Season 2, but we have a new build to get accustomed to, as well as an up-to-date model of the 2015 NASCAR Camping World truck.  Diehard Ford fans may be disappointed, as the blue oval has been kicked to [...]

Burnin’ Rubber and Money

by Dylan Schmidt on March 4th, 2015

cartoon character

Week 2 – Atlanta After last week’s 11th place finish at Daytona, I sat down and did some projections in the budget.  With my $5 million loan from the bank, compounding at 2% interest per week, we would have to finish in the top five every week in order to stay on track with the loan repayment.  That doesn’t really leave any room for paying for new cars if we need them.  And honestly, what are the chances that we will finish that well?  Not good!  So, the smart thing is to pay off at least half of that loan right now, while there is still money in the bank.  That will take the interest payments down to a manageable amount, and leave us enough money to operate for at [...]

NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series: Manufacturer Points

by Dylan Kapisky on March 2nd, 2015

The race is on - for manufacturers as well as drivers - in the 2015 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series.

Tuesday night, the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series kicked off its season at the virtual Daytona International Speedway. The race came down to the final three laps with Ray Alfalla taking a rather controversial win, accidentally spinning Tyler Laughlin after pushing him to the front. With the win, of course, Alfalla took the early lead in the season standings. This year, for the first time in the brief history of the NPAS, the drivers championship is not the only thing being tracked. While there may not be a trophy presentation on the line, we’ll be tracking the virtual manufacturer’s championship throughout the year. The NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series manufacturer’s points system mimmicks that of the NASCAR system, which is based loosely on the driver points system. A quick breakdown of how [...]

Get to Know: Justin Lindsay (Part 2)

by David Ifeguni on March 2nd, 2015

Lindsay and his Coanda Simsport teammates carved a place for themselves in sim racing history by winning the inaugural iRacing.com 24 Hours of Daytona.

Two weeks ago readers had the chance to learn about iRacer Justin Lindsay, the 31 year old sim racing out of Cincinnati, Ohio. An accomplished road racer on iRacing, having won 93 career races in 825 starts, and Pro/WC licensed driver, Lindsay has come a long way since winning his first career race at Okayama International Circuit in the Mazda Cup car. Earlier this year, Lindsay was able to achieve something no other person on iRacing will be able to achieve…….besides three other people. Lindsay joined Coanda Simsport teammates Paul R Williams, Martin Krönke and Mitchell deJong to run a combined total of 874 laps and win the top split of the inaugural iRacing.com 24 Hours of Daytona, the virtual counterpart of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race, which [...]

Alfalla Wins 2015 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Opener

by Jason Lofing on February 25th, 2015

Alfalla (2) heads to victory at Daytona as Laughlin (51) heads to the wall.

Ray Alfalla, two-time champion of the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing, kicked-off the 2015 season with a victory at Daytona International Speedway. Alfalla, who started thirty-fourth, came out on top after contact with Tyler Laughlin as the two battled for the lead with three laps to go. The incident resulted in Laughlin crashing and flipping wildly down the backstraightaway which brought out a race-ending caution. Series rookie Patrick Crabtree finished second followed by fellow-first timers Nathan Wise and Tyler Hill with Byron Daley rounding-out the top five despite minor crash damage from an earlier incident. Restrictor plate racing in the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series always seems to produce a late-race pass for the win and the 2015 opener was no exception. With a dozen laps remaining Alfalla found [...]

With the arrival of the 2015 NASCAR season comes an itch, an itch for competition, an itch to battle wheel-to-wheel with fellow competitors to see who can conquer fear and establish dominance amongst the pack. Well, I’m certainly no fortune teller, but I think it is pretty safe to say I will never bump draft at Daytona, rim-ride the high banks of Bristol, tackle the Monster Mile, or earn my Darlington stripe . . . well, in real life that is.  In the virtual world, the outlook is rather more positive.  iRacing is an online prescription-based racing simulator with over 50,000 members worldwide competing amongst each other, and it’s a blast!  The sim markets itself as being entertaining, while also serving as a training platform for professional drivers.  They pride [...]

NASCAR iRacing Series Diary – February 18

On Monday I was able to look into both the Fixed and Open series Stats pages. Not to see where in the standings I was, we have not run the first race! I was there to see what Division I would be in. For some odd reason last season the division I was in did not match between the two series. This year I found that I will be in Division 4 in both series – a good division or two higher than I was expecting. I am hoping to get in a few races prior to the start of the season to give my iRating a boot. With all three of the top series at Daytona, there could be a good chance to do just that. I have few [...]

NASCAR BACK ON TRACK

This weekend saw NASCAR end what seems to have been one of the longest lasting off seasons, due to the ban on testing. After a two month lay off, twenty five Sprint Cup cars took Daytona International Speedway’s green flag at 5 PM Friday for the first of two practice sessions for the 3rd Annual Sprint Unlimited. In the first session Kyle Larson ran 28 laps, which was the most among all the drivers. Matt Kenseth had the best ten lap average at 195.882 mph while Kurt Busch set the fastest single lap, running in the draft at a speed of 200.749 mph. As dusk turned to darkness just 14 of the 25 eligible cars chose to practice under the lights. Jeff Gordon, who had the second fastest 10 lap [...]

The Most Famous Beach in Racing

by Dylan Kapisky on February 11th, 2015

The 2015 NASCAR iRacing Series gets underway with the Daytona 500 the week of February 19.

In Daytona Beach, Florida lies one of the most historic sites in racing, Daytona International Speedway. In roughly one week, hundreds of sim racers will take to a digital recreation of this historic track for iRacing.com’s Daytona 500 in the NASCAR iRacing Series – Open and Fixed setups.  Daytona is home to the most prestigious race on the NASCAR circuit, and has a rich history of great racing. What makes this race so special? Founding and Construction: For many years, racing in Daytona Beach meant racing on the Daytona Beach and Road Course, a 3.2 mile (until the late 1940s, where it was extended to 4.2) beach-road combination track. This was until NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. (aka “Big Bill”) envisioned a large paved super-speedway, with incredible banking to maximize [...]

Frequent Flyer

Less than two years since taking his first laps in a real race car, Chris Beaufait has already earned awards including the Skip Barber Challenge’s Most Improved Driver.  And while the green flag has yet to wave on the racing season, Beaufait would appear to have the pole for the Most Frequent Flyer Miles award in the 2015 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge which kicks-off with Friday’s BMW Performance 200 at Daytona International Speedway. That’s because Beaufait plans to commute to at least half a dozen races this season from his home in Bejing – as in China – where he is Group Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and China for Vestas Wind Systems A/S, “the world’s largest manufacturer, seller, installer and servicer of wind turbines.” Winging back and [...]
