Nice win Teddy

Not sure if you took 2 tires in last stop or 4.
Prob took 4 its just i suck at green flag pitting and lost way too much time.

Tried to find a way by but too good and consistent so i couldnt get enough drive off the turn to get in position to make a pass.

What was everyones thoughts on dynamic track?
Personally i didnt notice any other lines becoming faster than the usual fastest way around the track.

It was fun watching Jason and Teddy battle there at the end. I saved my tires till the end to hold off Dave for 10th place...fun race.

I would say our races aren't long enough to rubber in to change the racing, pretty much same old preferred line. Not a whole lot of difference in my opinion. Next week I plan to accelerate rubber and marbles with  Moderately High Usage (65% to 75%) at start of  practice and Carry over track state to the race session. Dover was set at 40%. It did seem that I used up my tires a little quicker.

I noticed that speeds picked up about a second from the practice before the build.  Wednesday night  i could tell a difference in the track.  Yesterday I couldnt tell much difference in track changes during the race


Good win Teddy

Shane, I had Wednesday night set at 75% vs 40% on race day. Maybe that was the difference. I will look at 65% to 75% for next race.

I haven't really noticed much change to the track in the two longer races I've done since the update.  Certainly not enough to warrant going to the high lane.

Thanks guys... That was a fun Race!!!! 

It was very hard to pass Jason, it was a  lot of fun racing with you!  The Wednesday practice race was a lot faster and had better grip????  I cant really say I have noticed a change during the race on Saturday.  I did run the 200 lap Richmond fixed race and the track got real loose towards the end....  I think we could gradually increase the usage % until we find a setting that returns a noticeable change during our races.????  or we could just leave it. 

I would say I'm indifferent as long as we continue our EXCELLENT no caution races Wink

Yeah been a great start to the series with not many yellows.

Ive noticed depending on track usage % the track will feel different and produce different laptimes, still fastest way around though was the same as always.

Also on long runs with NTM there is more time drop off.
In gen 6 testing i was noticing about a 2sec time drop off over a long run.
I tried changing lines but fastest way was same as usual.

Maybe it needs 20+cars and 100+ laps before other lines become faster.
