NASCAR Stage Racing – GT Podcast

F-R Racing's Garage Talk iRacing Podcast Logo

We’re back with another episode of F-R Racing’s Garage Talk. NASCAR stage racing and race length was the first topic we hit this week and we want to know if it’s really even necessary. A look back at the week in IndyCar and Formula 1 as well along with a recap of Erik’s Behind Closed Doors first race.

NASCAR Stage Racing, IndyCar in Texas, and Formula 1 Australian Chaos

On this week’s episode of F-R Racing’s Garage Talk, we talk about the Richmond NASCAR Cup Series race and generally how boring it was for the most part. The conversation expands into whether Stage Racing is necessary and whether the races are too long for our short attention span society.

Next, we move on and talk about the IndyCar race in Texas and how the use of the upper racing line added excitement not seen at that track in many years. Did Jimmie Johnson help inspire IndyCar drivers to make oval racing better because of his driving in Texas and Iowa? Do we need to expand ovals on the schedule? We also briefly recap the first race in Erik’s “Behind Closed Doors” Open Wheel (don’t call it an IndyCar) iRacing league. The top three cars ran Michigan and finished 0.042 seconds apart. 

Finally, we close out by discussing the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix. We hosted F-R Racing’s Garage Talk LIVE Raceday and ran into numerous technical issues on the front end of the stream. We talk about those issues and how the early red flag bailed us out while D.J. fixed the stream audio setup. Once the stream was up and running, the race was relatively routine until the last few laps when all chaos broke out. We break down the chaos, multiple restarts, and Carlos Sainz’s five-second penalty that dropped him to 12th place.
