We look to keep the momentum rolling for the next round at the legendary Daytona road course.

Hi all. We over at HJHQ are currently aware of an issue impacting the Street Stock that appears to be linked to the introduction of the new iRacing damage model for that vehicle. Please see the forum post below for more details.

Hopefully this is addressed in the patch scheduled to be rolled out tomorrow morning, and consequently the championship round will be hosted as scheduled tomorrow evening.

I put in a lot of practice laps for this race, but still made too many mistakes.  Had three incidents where the car inadvertently came to a full stop.  The worst was in turn 6 with 5 minutes to go I lost at least four positions back to P23.  This opened the door for Kniseley to catch me lol.  With 3:20 to go I was still P23.  On my white flag lap Alex was closing but I managed to avoid being lapped by about 1 second.  Due to others making more mistakes - including several who ran out of fuel - and staying on the lead lap I ended up P17, which is right where I qualified.

I made a fueling error, but in the opposite direction of most it seems.  I had calculated I needed 7 gallons during my practicing, but just past halfway, I doubted that would be enough, so I changed to 9 gallons.  Turns out I really only need 5 or 6 and at 5 seconds a gallon, I lost 20 seconds to the group I was with :(  Still managed to move up from q32 to p21.  

 

On to Road America, with even longer straights and more super long braking zones.

Meh race all around for me.  First lap got a bit of a brake check that gave me some decent aero damage.  Managed to stay in the top ten.  Koffard was nice enough to pull myself and another HJ guy towards the front.  Pitted with them in 8th place, fueled and as soon as my speedo hit 56mph...15 second black flag, then it hit it again just for good measure to take it to 40 seconds.  Stopped, fell all the way back to 24th place with 15mins to go.  Made up some spots towards the end, had a fun last two or three laps with @mostmint and another guy.  Set the other guy up at the end for the last lap pass after nascar 4.  Managed to get back to 15th.  Street stock is fun, need more time in that car.  See you guys at RA.
