No luck at all in the 4th Round of the iRacing NASCAR Peak Antifreeze Series at Auto Club Speedway. Started p. 13. The first caution came out on lap 6. On the re-start, Justin was caught in a wreck with too much damage to continue. Next race in two weeks at Texas. You can watch the replay here.
Tuesday, 3/15/2016, was the 3rd Round of the iRacing NASCAR Peak Antifreeze Series. It would end up being 156 laps of green flag racing. This was the first race using the new build with less downforce on the cars. Justin in the #36 Alliance Garage Doors / CHI Overhead Doors car lined up p. 12 for the start. With a long green flag run, Justin came in around lap 80 for tires and fuel and then drove back up through the field to p. 5. Without a caution coming out, the pit strategy did not work leaving Justin finishing in p. 34. On to Auto Club in two weeks. A replay of the race can be seen on YouTube here.
Round 2 of the iRacing 2016 NASCAR Peak Antifreeze Series was Tuesday, 3/1/2016, at Atlanta Motor Speedway. They would race 167 laps. Justin qualified p. 7, led 25 laps, and finished in the top 10. There were 5 total cautions, 3 in the first half and 2 yellows at the beginning of the second half of the race. The caution at half way occurred during green flag pit stops and caught Justin back in p. 23. He stayed out after the last caution to take the lead and held onto the lead for 6 laps before the tires started to fall off. Tire fall off was huge with a good 2 seconds difference. Justin used some more strategy and came in early for fresh tires on the last green flag pit stop to gain some ground and finished the race p. 9. You can watch a replay of the race on YouTube here. Next week iRacing will put out a new build on the cars adding the new downforce. The next race will be 3/15/2016 at Phoenix International Raceway.
