Commodore’s Garage #37 – Truck Project: Farewell from Michigan

February 9th, 2018 by

For the entire Truck Project series of articles, I’ve tried to stress the concept of carrying one setup from track to track and making adjustments to suit the track instead of trying to reinvent the wheel each week.  While sim-racers have historically spent hours and hours building a setup each week for a new track … Read the Rest »

Commodore’s Garage #36 – Truck Project: Out on a High Note

January 31st, 2018 by Matt Holden

When we left Milwaukee it would be an understatement to say that Alex and I were disappointed in how our cars performed.  We finished 2nd and 3rd, which looks nice on paper, but when you consider that both of us got lapped it’s not something to be proud of by any means.  The bounce that … Read the Rest »

Commodore’s Garage #35 – Truck Project: The Milwaukee Mishap

January 25th, 2018 by Matt Holden

I knew Milwaukee was going to be a difficult race to get figured out way back when the foundation for this endeavor was laid out.  It’s an old track, few series race there anymore, and it rarely gets placed on any of the NASCAR iRacing Schedules meaning there aren’t a lot of people who have … Read the Rest »

Commodore’s Garage #34 – Truck Project: Auto Club Speedway

January 13th, 2018 by Matt Holden

  Somebody needs to mark the calendar because a sign of End Times arrived last night after our Truck race:  Somebody was happy with the way Jeff Parker raced him. All jokes aside, it’s safe to say that our race at Auto Club Speedway was a one-and-done situation because it’s highly unlikely that we’ll be … Read the Rest »

60+ Racing Adventures: An interview with Ralph Kemmerer

January 9th, 2018 by Bill Lawrence

60Plus Racing Adventures is posting an interview we had with our most senior driver, Ralph Kemmerer. We thought a wider audience might be interested in reading Ralph’s story.

Commodore’s Garage #33 – Truck Project: Lucas Oil Raceway

January 8th, 2018 by Matt Holden

  Week four of the Season 1 Class C season is in the books, and this time we actually got a race in with the Truck Project!  Last Thursday Alex Scribner, Jeff Parker, and I all got into the 9:45pm Eastern race and were able to shakedown the truck in a full-bore, “this matters” type … Read the Rest »

60Plus Racing Adventures League: Lime Rock Race 3 Season 5

January 8th, 2018 by Bill Lawrence

Photo Credit Bruce Poole Welcome to the third race of our fifth season taking place at the historic Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut. Since 1957 this has been New England’s classic road racing home. A free track in iRacing’s collection simply means everyone should very familiar with the layout.

Commodore’s Garage #32 – Myrtle Beach Results

December 27th, 2017 by Matt Holden

The bad news up front:  We were never able to get a race in at Myrtle Beach!  In hindsight, however, it probably wasn’t the best idea to start all this during the week before Christmas.  Still, we did manage to get into a few sessions with regular series drivers and managed to gather quite a … Read the Rest »

Commodore’s Garage #31 – Starting the Truck Project

December 20th, 2017 by Matt Holden

  Last week I teased the next batch of articles that will cover the setup process of our own in-house Class C Truck over the Winter season.  Since this is week 1 and nobody on the team has raced a truck in over a year and a half, we had to start from scratch.  Since … Read the Rest »
