  • Cam Stark
    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.

Past Champs Davis and Johnston Win at The Glen, Texas

by Corey Davis on August 18th, 2015

Corey Davis (#70) and Dean Moll (#51) lead the field into Turn 1 at the start.

After more than 3,000 left turns to begin its tenth season, the ITSR Power Series finally made a few right-handers in the first road course stop of the season at Watkins Glen. The sim racers were greeted by cool, cloudy weather, which made the 2.45-mile road course very grippy and ultra fast.  In qualifying, Season Eight champion Corey Davis won the pole with a lap of 1:09.511.  Series newcomer and road course ringer Dean Moll qualified his #51 Toyota in second, followed by Chad Dalton, Matt Delk, and John Higman Jr. When the race went green, Davis darted ahead in Turn 1 while the field settled in single-file behind.  The best battle early in the race was between Dalton and Delk, who were separated by less than half a second [...]

From A Dig Motorsports’ “Tough Trucks” – Steers and Race Cars

by Scott Smith on June 8th, 2015

Kolin Keister IIi (12) makes the winning move around Kemonric Little2, with Logan Kress (1) poised to follow suit.

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and although Texas Motor Speedway is an intermediate track at 1.5-miles – far from the biggest track NASCAR visits – track promoter, Eddie Gossage would keep the cliché truthful with the installation, at that time, of the world’s largest video screen.  Nicknamed Big Hoss, the colossal Panasonic screen – which measures just over 20,000 square feet – was installed in the spring of 2014, and seems to tower over the entire state, midway down the backstretch. Aside from the numerous promotional ploys TMS uses to attract fans, the speedway also provides some exceptional racing.  Owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., it’s no surprise that the track closely resembles both, Atlanta and Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Its 24 degrees of banking provide the grip levels needed [...]

Burnin’ Rubber & Cash Lone Star-style

by Dylan Schmidt on April 22nd, 2015

Schmidt reels-in Rowlands for the final time.

The stars at night are big and bright… Deep in the Heart of Texas! Welcome everyone to the beautiful Dallas / Fort Worth area, where everything is bigger than everywhere else.  This includes the paychecks, as this is one of the bigger races of the season, with a nice purse for the top five finishers.  On top of that, this is my last race with DC Comics as my main sponsor.  I’ve got a couple of their reps up in the sky box, as well as reps from the Henry Doorly Zoo, and rival comic company Marvel.  My recent success has definitely brought in the interested parties. I did a lot of my growing up years in this area; spent some of my childhood within a couple hours of here, [...]

Texas Tire Management

by Jake Hayes on April 17th, 2015


Week 6 of the 2015 NASCAR iRacing Series Open takes us back out to the western United States: Texas Motor Speedway! Texas has always been a track where I have struggled to finish well; in fact my best result here last year was only 12th. However, I always try to look at each week positively, so I aimed for my first top ten at this 1.5 mile race track. One thing that is crucial to getting the maximum amount of speed out of your car at Texas is balanced handling. You must have a very neutral feeling race car at this track; too loose and you’ll slide into the fence off the corners; too tight and you’ll plow to the wall and/or kill your tires. Saving your tires is also [...]

Laughton Beats Humpe, Wins Texas

by Jason Lofing on April 8th, 2015

Laughton (26) kept Humpe (58) at bay over a tense final 24 laps to win at Texas.

Chad Laughton proved Kenny Humpe is mortal, coming out on top of a head-to-head battle at Texas Motor Speedway for his first victory of the 2015 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing. A late caution bunched the field and erased Laughton’s sizable lead but Humpe could not take advantage after the restart and came-up just over a tenth of a second short. Two-time series champion Ray Alfalla finished on Humpe’s bumper in third with Chris Overland fourth followed by polesitter Justin Bolton. Laughton started from fourth and wasted little time making his way to the front. On Lap 35 Laughton passed Bolton for the lead and assumed control of the race. Humpe started ninth and by Lap 55 he moved into the runner-up position before taking the lead the [...]

Humpe Dominant, Wins Second Straight

by Jason Lofing on March 25th, 2015

Humpe led  of laps in a convincing win at Auto Club Speedway.

For the second week in a row, Kenny Humpe visited victory lane in the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing. This time, Humpe’s win capped a dominating performance at Auto Club Speedway in which he started from the pole and led five times for 97 of 125 laps. Chad Laughton finished runner-up, half a second behind the winner with Justin Bolton third, followed by Ray Alfalla and Nick Ottinger. From the drop of the green flag, Humpe was clearly the driver to beat. After Laughton drafted by to lead the second lap, Humpe regained control and looked to pull away from the rest of the field, although a trio of cautions would keep that from happening. The first two incidents were relatively minor but the third, which unfolded on [...]

Norton Dominates in Texas

January 9th, 2015

IndyCar Texas 2015 S1

Week Three of the 2015 Season 1 IndyCar Oval sent the series to Texas Motor Speedway. A grand total of 239 sim-racers raced in the Lone Star State throughout a week where handling, lapped traffic, pit strategy and tire wear were just some of the storylines that played-out. Ryan Norton (Florida) started on pole with Matt Pawelski (Pennsylvania) on his outside. Tim Holgate (Ohio) started on the inside of Row Two along with Christopher Demeritt (New Jersey) fourth, and Nigel Marneef (Benelux) rounded out the top five starting positions. Norton and Holgate each got off to excellent starts, easily pulling ahead of Pawelski before Turn One. Holgate immediately jumped to the outside in an attempt to take the lead, only to fall back in line behind Norton off of [...]

Caudill Captures Iowa

by Seth Eggert on January 2nd, 2015

Sim Racing

Week Two of the 2015 Season 1 IndyCar Oval sent the series to Iowa Speedway. A grand total of 203 sim-racers took on the 7/8s mile speedway throughout a week in which cautions, handling, lapped traffic, pit strategy, tire wear, and single-file restarts were just some of the storylines that played-out. Erick Davis (Canada) started on pole with Vick Caudill (Michigan) on his outside. Chuck Eisenbarth (Ohio) started from the inside of Row Two alongside Rob Unglenieks (Michigan) with Matt Pawelski (Pennsylvania) rounding out the top five starting positions. Davis had an excellent start and easily led Caudill and Eisenbarth into Turn One. Eisenbarth looked low on Caudill and quickly fell back behind Unglenieks and alongside Pawelski who subsequently pushed high off of Turn Four and nearly collided with [...]

Vincent Dominant in Homestead Win

by Jason Lofing on November 19th, 2014

Vincent spent all but ? of ? laps out front at Homestead en route to a dominant win.

Corey Vincent redeemed himself from the disappointment of two weeks ago at Texas by putting-on a dominating performance at Homestead-Miami Speedway to earn his first career NASCAR iRacing Pro Series win. Vincent started on pole and was untouchable in clear air, leading 116 of 134 laps. Justin Trombley finished second for his second top five of the season. Andrew Fayash was third thanks to some crafty fuel strategy despite starting way down in forty-first position and getting lapped on the first run of the race. Casey Tucker and Kevin King rounded out the top five. The race began with a bang when Ashely Miller spun his tires and collected Steven Gilbert but, curiously, no caution was thrown even though Gilbert spun and other cars were damaged in the stack-up. One [...]

The Champ Is Back

by Dylan Kapisky on November 10th, 2014

After something of a sabatical in the 2014, Hudson hopes to return to the top of the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series heap next season.

This past Tuesday the iRacing Pro Series-Oval kicked-off at the digital Texas Motor Speedway. Although there were no big brawls, there were some heated on-track battles. When the dust settled in the virtual Lonestar State, despite all of the newcomers to the Pro Series, it was ex-PEAK Antifreeze Series champion Tyler Hudson celebrating. I caught up with Tyler to discuss the win, the past, and the future of his iRacing career. Q:  Nice win, was a close one towards the end.  What was going through your mind as Corey Vincent was closing in? A:  Thanks. I could see the gap and how fast he was coming, and so I knew he was most likely going to catch me with five-seven laps to go. I just tried to focus as hard [...]

The Duke of Fort Worth

by Brian Tate on November 6th, 2014

Fernando Bento (1), Chris Atkins (7), Donovan Johnson (5) and Brian Tate (6) battle in the Lone Star state.

Dukehart Takes Season Opener at Texas; Ringler Posts Strong Start in Title Defense Jeff Dukehart has been near the top of championship standings throughout all of the three previous seasons in 2014 in the iRacing NASCAR Class B Open Oval Series, but for at least one week, he stands alone at the top following his Season 4-opening win at Texas Motor Speedway.  It was a strong start for the Nashville, Tennessee native and with the final season of 2014 being half as long as past campaigns, Dukehart only has five races to fend off a talented group of pursuers including the 2014 Season 3 champion, Trent Ringler. Like many of the bigger tracks on iRacing, the 1.5-mile tri-oval in Fort Worth, Texas saw a huge turnout to kick- off the [...]

Conti Flies at Texas

by Tom O'Leary on November 5th, 2014

racing games

As the NASCAR iRacing Series Fixed rushes to its conclusion, Week 34 brought the sim racers to Texas Motor Speedway – one of the most popular tracks in oval racing, greatly populated in every tier of the sport. Championship leader Matt Bussa was the quickest driver in one lap pace, setting the benchmark in qualifying at 29.685s. Some came close – Kris Kelley was just .009s behind, but Bussa had the upper hand going into the week’s races. Texas’ fast layout provided a challenge in each of its four corners and keeping the tires alive proved key to success. In the first event of the week, Chad J Laughton proved his pace by winning the 5377 SoF online race after leading 47 laps. Laughton took advantage of Ryan Michael Luza [...]

Hudson Takes 2014-’15 NASCAR iRacing Pro Season Opener

by Jason Lofing on November 5th, 2014

Hudson heads to the checkers as chaos erupts in is mirrors.

Tyler Hudson kicked-off the 2014-’15 NASCAR iRacing Pro Series with a surprising win at Texas Motor Speedway in a  race that got a bit wild with five laps remaining. Hudson, who started way back in thirty-seventh, found himself in front of the field by five seconds after taking two tires during the final pit stop. Corey Vincent, who was looking to win in his first career NiPS start, led 111 of 167 laps and clearly had the dominant car but found himself in second place after taking four tires on the final stop. Vincent’s four tires were clearly faster and as the laps counted down he was closing fast on Hudson. With six laps remaining Vincent was on Hudson’s rear bumper looking for a way by as soon as possible [...]

Norton Takes Texas-Sized Slugfest

by Matt Pawelski on October 22nd, 2014

Holgate (blue) moves past Branch (green) on lap 96

Holgate (blue) moves past Branch (green) on lap 96

Norton barely escapes under Rossi. Holgate (blue, back right), focuses on his own way out.

Texas Motor Speedway. Eddie Gossage’s crown jewel. A generic 1.5 miler. Whatever you want to call it, TMS is track dreaded by just about every single driver in the iRacing IndyCar series. With good reason!  This sim race would prove to be an absolutely apocalyptic slug fest. At the end of the race, only four drivers were circulating at competitive speeds or on the lead lap . . . in a race that started with over 20 cars. After setting a fast qualifying run of 23.096s, Ryan Norton led he field to green with Niles Anders (23.124s) alongside and Tim Holgate (23.134s) third. On the green, the dicing in the field would stay clean down to sixth place, where Brandon Trost pushed into the Turn 2 wall on the second [...]

Holgate Dominates Richmond

by Matt Pawelski on October 9th, 2014

Anders’s late challenge on Holgate fell just short of victory.

From last week’s visit to the Valley of the Sun the IndyCar Series headed east, past another valley named “Shenandoah” to Richmond and Richmond International Raceway.  A unique hybrid of a track, Richmond is part short track (.75 miles), part speedway (14 degree banking) and one challenging place to race. Tim Holgate was definitely up to that challenge, taking the pole ahead of Erick Davis by what – for this series – is a HUGE margin – .08 seconds. Holgate turned a a 14.185 second lap, with Davis running at 14.268 seconds and Vick Caudill posting a time of 14.305 seconds for third on the grid. Holgate got a good jump at the green and pulled away into Turn One as Caudill carried the bottom side and cleared Davis. Brandon [...]

Behind the Scenes – NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series – Texas Motor Speedway

by Matt Holden on April 15th, 2014

Tyler Hudson (#01) and Nick Ottinger (#05) make contact

Let’s face it:  There are some who have been waiting a week for this article to hit the website.  I, on the other hand, have actively avoided writing it because revisiting last week’s race seems like a step backwards, nothing that would provide any kind of progress towards the next race.  However, this is easily a way to close the door on an “event” that most of us have forgotten about already. I knew we were in for a long race when Nick left Turn 2 on the opening lap.  He said just two words before trying to settle into a rhythm:  “We tight.”  He’s very good about waiting for a car to evolve throughout a run, and as a result can immediately tell if the car is going to [...]

Overland and Alfalla Collect the Points at Texas

by Tom O'Leary on April 11th, 2014

racing simulations

Texas Motor Speedway was the racetrack to over 1200 sim-racers as they race towards the halfway point in the NASCAR iRacing Series. The ‘Great American Speedway’ provided some close sim-racing at high speeds, with the virtual track incorporating features of Talladega & Bristol – and with the tarmac renowned for its slipperiness — being precise with the driving controls was the key to finishing up the field in Texas. In the first race of the Fixed series, NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series driver Danny Hansen took the lead towards the end of the race – and stayed there to take the checkered flag in style, finishing ahead of some of iRacing’s best oval sim-racers. Hansen took over the lead from Ray Alfalla with 22 to go and rose above the pressure [...]

King Wins Texas Calamity

by Jason Lofing on April 9th, 2014

King (29) heads to the win from Conti (5) and Laughton (26) as Alfalla (2) exits stage left.

In a race at Texas Motor Speedway that saw crashes and tempers take half the field out of contention, Kevin King kept his nose clean just long enough to score his first win of the 2014 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing. King, who had a fifteenth place car by his own admission, made a late gamble on pit road, then took advantage of contact between Ray Alfalla and Chad Laughton to squeeze by into the lead just as the caution flew to end the online race. Michael Conti finished second while Laughton settled for third after his run-in with Alfalla. Trey Eidson led late before fading to fourth and Adam Gilliland rounded-out the top five. With six laps to go, King was sitting in third just a couple [...]

The Lone Star Paperclip

by Jordan Hightower on April 4th, 2014

Week 8 Texas P1

Texas Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway are complete opposites of each other. One is a 1.5-mile high banked superspeedway and the other is a flat half-mile paperclip. Each track produces exciting racing, but in two entirely different fashions. Texas produces great side-by-side action and fast speeds and Martinsville is a tight, one-lane racetrack which produces great sim-racing at about half the speed of Texas. The use of divebombs and the bump-and-run are common occurrences in order to make a successful pass at Martinsville while drafting is the preferred passing technique used at Texas. Be careful though, if you’re still within striking distance after a bump-and-run, you should probably prepare to receive one back. Even with the varying degree of difficulty associated with each speedway, there was only a 45 driver [...]

Raffurty Takes All at Martinsville

by Tom O'Leary on April 3rd, 2014

racing games

The NASCAR iRacing Series moved to the state of Virginia for Week 6 at Martinsville Speedway – also known as the Worlds Fastest Paperclip. The .526 mile track would completely change the sim-racers’ driving style from the previous week at Auto Club Speedway as Martinsville requires pin-point accuracy on the slow, tight corners – and the trust in your setup to get on the power as early as possible to maximise your speed on the relatively short straights. In this regard, it is either a popular or hated track due to it being completely unique in its design and with almost no banking it proved tough to run two-wide, lap after lap. In the first race of the Fixed series, it was Timmy Hill who took to the checkered in [...]
