It is a busy weekend for NASCAR fans across the globe, and for those of us who are also regulars on iRacing. It is even busier. This weekend kicks off the NASCAR iRacing Series and the iRacing Daytona 500,
Ever wanted a chance to run in the Daytona 500, well, like the 24 hours of Daytona, iRacing has got you covered. What started as a special event has now been integrated into one of its most popular NASCAR series. The NASCAR iRacing Series follows the real world NASCAR schedule with most of its races being 50% distance of their real-life counterpart (simply because most of us have lives). However, there are a few select races that will run full distance.
The Daytona 500 is one of those races. These races occur 3x per week with the first one having occurred on Wed night and the subsequent ones being Friday evening and Sunday morning.
I am planning to run Friday and hoping for a decent run so that I will not have to try again on Sunday morning, the setup that I am using for the race is decent, but nothing spectacular. As long as the nose is kept clean and I maintain contact with the lead pack, it should be a good finish. Of course a post event report will follow.
As a bonus for reading, here is a special scheme that I will run at a couple races this season, debuting exclusively on Digital Burnouts and Opposite Lock.
