The first race of the iRacing NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series was last Tuesday, 2/24, for 100 laps at Daytona. Justin is part of the team Cody Byus Racing (CBR). After qualifying, the entire field of 43 cars was less than 1/10 of a second off each other’s times for the start of the race. Justin started in the back of the field but by lap 11 had worked his way to the front. Justin and teammate Cody Byus were running in the top 5 by lap 15. They remained at the front of the field until lap 67. A car was turned from the outside line and crossed over in front of Justin in the inside line. Justin’s #36 car sustained heavy front-end damage; and even though Justin was able to continue, the car was not competitive. There were five cautions throughout the race. Justin finished p. 16.

Also announced last Tuesday, 2/24, iRacing and FansChoice.tv will be working together to provide broadcasts of the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series and the NASCAR iRacing Class B Series every Tuesday night during this 2015 season.
“It’s exciting to be running the NPAS with the best sim racers. It takes a lot of time and effort to get this far. With more and more partners coming on board to broadcast the races hopefully all of this will help to get back in a real-world car.”
