PostSubject: Bucyrus 100 @ Road America (25 Laps)   Wed Jan 04, 2012 12:24 am

Final road course race this season






Drivers to Watch at Road America


Jordan Robson Has been dominant all year, with a win already at Trois Rivieres he will be a sure contender at Elkart Lake



Shawn taylor has been a road course ace all his career, you can be sure he will be a contender at any roadie, with nothing to lose in the points for Taylor you can count on him going for the win



Poulin has been an excellent road racer the last couple seasons. Poulin Won the first road race at Watkins glen. He did not have the same luck at Trois where he blew his engine early in the race. After winning at Montreal in the Nationwide series yesterday afternoon, Jake is definitely in road race mode.



Codol always seems to be running up front on the road courses, but does not have the finishes to show for it. Maybe his luck will change and will get him a win and get him back in the championship hunt.



Road courses haven't been Baker's strong suit. If he wants to stay in this championship hunt he needs to dig deep and get a solid finish at Road America.


Championship Chase

Drivers "in the hunt"


Longshots, still within one race of the lead


Out of contention, but not yet eliminated

Got down to a 2:09.686 on a q run, still having to brake earlier that everyone else though.

If our previous roadcourses have taught us anything, it's that you need to stay on track. If you can run a semi consistant time, but STAY ON TRACK you're guaranteed a good finish. I need sheer disaster to happen tonight to be back in the title hunt. Do or Die for me.

Yeah, I think I'll probably have to turn on stability for this one, but looking back at Watkins Glen, it hurt me sooooo much because I was extremely slow with it...

The problem for me is that I'm sliding the rear a lot and also have a huge amounts of wheelspin.

Tire wear is a big issue, it seems a little too high, to the point where you lose about a 5th of the bar on each tire in one lap. Might need Dan to go down a couple of clicks on that...

Since no one really came to test last night, I'm not entirely sure what everyone thinks about it, everyone who was there said it should probably go down or we'll be pitting every 5 laps.

I was ok with tire wear, but I like high tire wear races so I wouldn't be a good person to ask. I didnt really get a good hot lap, but I think I gotta a semi-solid setup that can be made faster I think.


Of course it depends on how I feel tonight if I can run or not.

it has always been like that but ive noticed lately that there are a lot more competetive people on roadies than in the past, before you could just ride and get a top 5 but now you can be very competitive and still finish 6-7th

Awesome. Slam my brake pedal in to stay behind the pack and it doesn't pick up at all.

Um, yeah, so lets never go there again. Had a pretty good race, and got my 2nd 2nd finish at a road course this season. I call that a success.

I flipped twice, and an 80 mile an hour impact with my left rear quarter panel into a tire wall does me in.
