PostSubject: Quaker State 160 at Kentucky   Wed Oct 19, 2011 7:30 am

The Solstice Proline Series heads to the state of Kentucky for the Quaker State 160. This is the first visit for Proline at Kentucky, so there are a lot of unknowns going into this race. Jake Poulin rides a wave of momentum as he closed in on Jordan Robson's points lead after Watkins Glen last week, after Robson won the first 2 points races of the season. Drivers will be beatin' and bangin' trying to find the right lines to take in this race, but as the test sessions have shown, it could be anyone's race. There isn't a clear cut favorite, so it's anyones race.

Be sure to tune in Thursday, October 20 as the boys have it at it at Kentucky!

*Track in the schedule has been updated with the new grip settings.*

The drivers meeting tonight will be stricter than others. We ask all people to stay quiet in teamspeak and the ingame chat. The admins want to go over some very important points prior to the race.

Woot! Glad I got the win here! I worked and worked on my setup for a total of prolly 24 hours, even tweaking it during happy hour before the race and it paid off! Good race everyone!

Apologize for that off turn two. I went in over my head because I couldnt get an inch (not that i'm supposed to, its hard racing on the last lap) so I threw it inover my head trying to salvage something, and it didnt work. Sorry to all involved.

But in my opinion, this was a step in the right direction. For the first 80% of the race, it was beautiful. Lets try to keep it going and complete a race without the insanity.

Such a roller coaster of a race. Started in the front and ran 8th-11th all night long. People started driving with their heads up there butts with 15 laps left and ended up getting spun out twice. Once was my fault but I had the Tony Stewart attitude there one RS and it really didn't work. Somehow was finally able to RS on the highside on the last RS in 4th. Was going to win it but I decided to make a premature move to the bottom on Lambert and ruined my momentum. 82 or whoever it was stuck his nose in there when I wasn't really expecting it but as said above, last lap nobody was going to really let off.

I guess its alright for certain people to let out rage but not others. Even when my own anger wasn't even really directed towards anybody. Haven't even been upset at all over incidents lately so this is the first time in a while.

Listen guys, those last 15 laps were terrible. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason to be driving like a headless chicken at ANY point in the race. I had my goofs tonight, but one of them wasn't of my doing, the other one might have been a caution either way.

If you know you cannot handle going three wide, then don't fucking do it. Like really. I am really disappointed with that finish after having such a great start to the race, for a while it looked like we were going to have only one caution.

That finish was absolutely disappointing.

Was having easily my strongest Proline race in quite a long time, I could keep up and I felt fast enough to pass a few people at the back of the pack. Car was stable and everything. Then my game minimized, again, for no reason. There isn't anything that popped up, and I'm sure I didn't hit the windows key, but my game minimized. When I got back in game I was headed straight towards the inside wall just past pit road. Pretty much demolished my car. WEnt multiple laps down, and couldn't go any faster than about 182.

Couldn't agree more.

After looking at the whole replay last night, to those who were concerned about Lambert jumping the restarts or slowing down before the line, he kept a constant speed each restart, and only went as slow as 57 mph on one restart. Every time he hit the gas was right as he hit the line, so he didn't do anything wrong.
