Week 6 of the NASCAR iRacing.com Late Model Tour took place at the fastest speedway of the circuit, Charlotte Motor Speedway. The high banks of Charlotte enable the Late Model to reach speeds that are impossible on the normal regime of short tracks which the tour visits. The 1.5 mile quad oval with 24 degrees of banking in the corners and five degrees on the straights provides ample opportunity for sim-racers to push their machines to the max.

Charlotte Motor Speedway offers unique challenges to the Late Model racers.

In this weeks standing, Logan Sheets took the top prize of 188 points with four starts and two wins and three poles. Sheets led 104 of his 140 laps capturing four top five finishes on the way. Sheets’ 188 points were enough to hold-off Kollin Keister, runner-up in the weekly standing on the strength of 178 points from nine starts, five wins and half a dozen top fives. He also managed a pole in every single race while leading 212 laps of the 256 which he completed. The final weekly podium spot went to Ron Hagolin who made four starts, capturing a win, four top fives, a couple of poles and led 44 of his 140 completed laps. With these results Hagolin took home 174 points to the overall standings.

The driver with the most wins this week was Kevin Myers. Myers made 22 starts and persevered to win 13 of those while capturing 17 poles along the way. Myers also led the most laps of any competitors this week: 509 ( of 762 completed). The most active Late Model iRacer of this week was Jay Flinn with 61 starts. He captured 10 wins in these races, 30 top fives and a pole while leading 266 of the 1946 laps he completed.

Keister maintains the overall series lead with 972 points over Sheets’ 962 markers. With this week’s victory, Sheets was able to narrow Keister’s lead by 10 points and, if the trend continues, the two could tie the lead in one week. Will Sheets take over next week? Or can Keister maintain his lead yet again in the NASCAR iRacing.com Late Model Tour? Next week the NiLMT will take to the track at New Smymra Speedway. Find out next week on inRacing News!

I hate to rain on anyone’s parade but if your going to mention Sheets and Kiester and there attributes at Lowes there’s a little something you missed and that’s how they accomplished this -In over 75% of there race`s they had any where from 2 to 6 team mates running behind them making no attempt to pass them but did hold up or wreck any one in field that would pose a problem to there little game

In some way I have to give the kids credit they used I racing forums to organize SOF rooms at a certain time , The problem boils down to how truly crappie this was when they controlled the field And on the odd chance there team mates were not there they didn’t fair as well and there dirty driving had to come into play it was same case at Michigan , Funny how there no where to be found on short tracks If you look who is in Team Lock Down founded by Sheets for this purpose alone I for one don’t think this deserves any press

All there wins and high SOF races are tainted
