    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.

    For all intents and purposes, Paul Slavonik was a late-bloomer to racing. Growing up watching NASCAR drivers such as Davey Allison and Earnhardt Sr. was the furthest extent of Paul’s racing aspirations at the time. Fast forwarding 20 years, Paul began watching the UK show Top Gear and thus ensued a fascination with all things fast. Soon after, Paul stumbled upon iRacing.com and has been hooked on racing ever since.
    A United States Army Veteran, Certified Audio Engineer and aspiring author, Paul spends his time hanging out with his wife and working on his first book. Currently residing in Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), TX, his favorite racing series is the Australian V8 Supercars (go FPR!) and he has recently joined a local ChumpCar racing team.

Last Thursday night, the Sim Auto Racing Association’s top division was back on track for the 10th race of their season. Entering the night, it was Cody Kelley who sat on top of the RB Performance Super Late Model Series points standings, as he looks to chase down three different league titles. Kelley has been the driver to beat all season long in multiple divisions in SARA competition during the Spring Season. He’s been on top of the Sportsman Street Stock standings all season with three victories, and he’s dominated the Pro Late Model division as well with a commanding lead in the points with five wins as well. But his stiffest competition has been in the Super Late Model division where Ty Spearman has been on his heels throughout [...]

On Thursday night, the RB Performance Super Late Model Series made their second trip of the season to the Irwindale Speedway, but this time they would run the Inner bullring configuration for a 125 lap feature event. Last week, the Sim Auto Racing Association‘s premiere division was at their largest track at the Milwaukee Mile, but the drivers would have to switch it up a bit as they battled it out on the smallest track on the schedule this week. In qualifying, it was Justin Brooks who picked up the pole for the race, with points leader Cody Kelley starting to his outside. At the drop of the green flag, Brooks and Kelley quickly fell in line in the first two spots, and while the field battled it out behind [...]

Cody Kelley (75) makes the winning pace late in the race on his way to his 3rd SLM victory of the season.

Last Thursday night, the RB Performance Super Late Model series took to the oldest track in the United States, The Milwaukee Mile, for 150 grueling laps in the Sim Auto Racing Association‘s version of the Howie Lettow Memorial 150. While Cody Kelley took the top spot in practice, it would be Ty Majeski just beating out Kelley by one hundreth of a second to take the pole position. As the race began, Majeski started to do what he does best, and pulled out to an early lead with Kelley on his tail. Everything was smooth sailing for the first 24 laps with David Krikorian, Bill Martin, and James Linkiewicz rounding out the top five. On lap 24 however, the two leaders would make contact as Kelley and Majeski got together in the [...]

After taking nearly a month off to race his real iRacing.com Super Late Model, Ty Majeski returned to Sim Auto Racing Association (SARA) competition last week, and he returned with a bang. He picked up a Sportsman Street Stock pole and victory last Tuesday night, and repeated the feat on Wednesday when he did the same thing in the MRolfeDesigns Pro Late Model Series. Majeski would join the RB Performance Super Late Model Series on Thursday night as well, and looked to see if he could make it three-in-a-row in his sim iRacing.com ride. In Week #7 of the RB Performance Super Late Model series, the division took to the darkness in Braselton, Georgia for the Lanier One-Fifty event, and the race would see 28 official starters with Ty Majeski [...]

Last Thursday night, the Sim Auto Racing Association’s top division, the RB Performance Super Late Models took to the unforgiving flats of New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the New Hampshire 103, and their 6th week of racing in the 12 race schedule. The feature event would be a 103 lap endurance with 23 drivers entering the show looking to capture the magic of The Magic Mile. After practice and group qualifying, Bill Martin would take the pole over Ty Spearman with a time of 30.486 seconds.

Brooks Holds Off Kelley at Concord

On Thursday night, the Sim Auto Racing Association’s premiere division, the RB Performance Super Late Model Series made their first ever trip to the Concord Speedway for a 125 lap event. A smaller field of just 18 cars would run the event, but that would set the race up for plenty of green flag action throughout the night. In group qualifying, Justin Brooks would set the fast time in qualifying on his first lap out, and then improved it some more to take the pole with a lap time of 15.907 seconds for his 28th career SARA pole. Just to his outside, points leader Cody Kelley would also set a fast time to join Brooks at the front of the field. At the drop of the green flag, Brooks would [...]

iRacing League Spotlight – DWRL / SARA

Since 2009, privately sanctioned leagues have long been a feature of many iRacers’ weekly schedules. If you ask those that participate in leagues, they’re most likely to tell you that league racing is some of the hardest racing you can find on the service. League members will quickly follow up that statement by telling you that the cleanest racing is also found within these regularly hosted events. If you’re a new member to iRacing, or a veteran that has only participated in iRacing official events, chances are you’re missing out on a lot of action found in the Leagues section of iRacing.com. Because of the new functionality that iRacing built into the service back in July of 2012, racing leagues are beginning to flourish on iRacing.com now more than ever [...]
