4 drivers took the green flag...

3 finished......

Late in the race something happened to Ryan (crash?) and allowed Ben to take P1.  I came out of the pits on Bens tail but had to make a stop and go 15sec penalty for speeding in the pits.  :(

That was a bit of an odd race.  Sure would be nice if more cars showed up.  1st time running that course in iRacing, took a few laps to figure a few things out.  It is a challenging and FUN course - I had a few pucker moments out there for sure! More people should run it! (unfortunately, I won't be in the country next week, so have to miss that one)

 

Lee crashed out before the start finish line on green flag lap, looked like he dropped a tire at exit and looped it into the wall.

 

I had a weird issue where during my pit, I stopped fueling (while taking tires), once tires were done, car wouldn't move.  Crew started re-fueling again and didn't let me do anything until it completed the 2nd round of fueling of 2 gallons.   hind sight, should have turned off the tire change as it really wasn't needed.   

 

Not sure what happened to Ryan, guessing he had an off going into the corkscrew thing and damaged his car/engine, I saw tire marks that cut across the grass/curbing for the right hander.

After two hours on and off of driving for practice then qualifying that was the first time I had done that.  This is the first race I've done in a few months and was very surprised at the turn out, or lack there of.

Ryan, me, made a stupid mistake in the kink and hit the wall. 

 

Hopefully there is a better turnout next week.  Is the week of the 26th not an option?  I assume many will be traveling for the holiday next week.
