This race couldn’t really have been more dissapointing… I joined without a qualifying time and started 12th out of twelve cars, I was also iRated in 12th and noticed pretty quickly that the person rated #1 was Dale Earnhardt Jr….
So, I lined up for the race and as the pace car pulled in I was ready to have a good race… It was going well and I was in 10th-place on lap four when – suddenly – I was disconnected as an incoming telephone called seemed to disconnect me.
Unfortunately for the person in 12th when I disconnected, I continued to be visible to them while they were invisible to me! Unknown to me I was involved in an incident with a car I couldn’t even see…
So, the best bit of the race wound up being when I was lapped by Dale Earnhardt Jr, who won his 20th iRacing Oval race from 58 starts!
I rejoined the server after my disconnection and put some laps in… Why? It’s always best to do this, because you can run clean laps with no pressure and increase your Safety Rating. I finished 11th and had no incidents apart from the one already mentioned. My fastest lap was a 22.788 on lap nine.
