iRacing Fun Races, F1 in Austin, NASCAR Homestead – GT Podcast

iRacing Fun Races topic on F-R Racing's Garage Talk Podcast and YouTube Show

Erik and D.J. are joined by Taka Timmerman on this week’s Garage Talk. We spend time this week talking about what are iRacing “fun” races on the platform. At the end of the Wednesday Night Dash season we host a bonus race, but try to be unique with what kind of racing we do.

iRacing Fun Races, F1 in Austin, NASCAR at Homestead

In today’s F-R Racing’s Garage Talk, Erik and D.J. are joined by F-R Racing’s Social Media Specialist, birthday boy, and newest Race Control guy, Taka Timmerman. The three talk about the Wednesday Night Dash end-of-year “fun race” where we thought it would be a good idea to mix Craftsman Truck Series Trucks on the same track as the old NASCAR Gen 4 cars at the old configuration of Atlanta Motor Speedway. The race ended up being a lot of fun and extremely challenging when it came to tire management. Despite the fact D.J. was the last truck standing and essentially won the truck class by default, he was still in a celebratory mood by quoting Cal Naughton Jr from Talladega Nights.

We move on and discuss the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas. First how the drivers universally dislike the sprint weekends, how Max Verstappen had issues with his brakes, and the disqualification of Lewis Hamilton and Charles LeClerc over a piece of wood under the car.

Finally, we close out the show talking about NASCAR at Homestead and what we’re going to do the rest of the year now that the WND season is over and NASCAR/F1 will be wrapping up soon.
