iRacing around the Milwaukee Mile

Posted on: August 16, 2010 | Comments(2) | iRacing | By: Brian

Since my last blog we’ve been on an oval stretch in the 16th Street Racing League.  I love road racing but my true passion lies with oval racing… ESPECIALLY short track racing.  There’s no better feeling than trying to drive the car as deep into the corner as possible and then coming out the other side in front.  This week we were at Milwaukee, a personal favorite of mine, for a 100 laps on the 1 mile oval.

Milwaukee is a unique track in that it’s not only short but it’s also flat.  This makes setup super important for a successful race.  On some of the flat out ovals you can ride around in the draft and try to make a late break for the lead in the last few laps.  This little oval inside the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds is a whole different ballgame.  To win you have to be fast from the first lap to the last.
