I had the live stream up for a while.

Course looked tight and bumpy. Video production was nice, but the drone thing didn't work. I think the announcer needs a little more info. It got better, but when I first tuned in, they really weren't giving times or standings.

As far as competition, it seems like you pretty much have to have and be able to fit the ACR tire to have a chance in RWD.

Thats odd... from the vids I watched.. I thought it was pretty open. I saw 70+ on several in car videos.
Looked fun!
*but, yes.. big bumps! made Bristol look pretty smooth. lol

Tight turns and big acceleration zones. I didn't look at anyone's in car, but I bet it has some really small numbers on there, too. I mean, the course had a 180 with the next gate forcing a tight exit.

yea, those 180s were 25mph.. which is about equal to our 180s at BMS.

This popped up on my YT feed. https://youtu.be/JYxmmMnsHvQ

I thought it was cool to see the live coverage. I wouldn't mind to take Swenson's Vette out for a mild thrashing.

geez, Johns GPS had him at 80 mph.
It looked purty fast.

Thing that I really noticed.. how fast that car slowed down at the first 180 hairpin. :shock:
