Well I am getting there. met my first wreckers in legends oval.

NOT fun. he did not hit me but still not fun.

He had done it 2 times in 2 races to the same guy apparantly.
Anyway. Also met a great guy. Shawn Haverly if someone know him. very helpful and gentlemans driver.

Anyway.... I am doing legends to get out of rookie score. thats all. I wanna truck race........

Haha! :)
The trucks are great.. Also got Impala now.. 3 seconds faster in Daytona..
Legends races can be a bit of a mess.. but i dont believe they are that much as people suggest.
Ive done 26 oval races total, finished in top5 in 22 of them.. been wrecked.. once.. other races i was just too slow to be in top5..
and 22 of those races are Legends oval races.. so its not bad.. just need to learn to see trouble and avoud it, whenever even slightly
possible.
:)

EDIT:I might also add, that theres lot of inexperienced oval racers in the rookies, they are learning class and licence level after all.

Right. bought Impala, skip barber and sebring track.


Now gotta use the cars for something. need more legends races to go higher up...

Had one no wher someone stopped in front of me in formation lap, I got damaged and needed to start from pit. Great... got 5th after starting in 12th, so not to bad, but I should have been fighting for pole  :grr:

Hmmm. Well I am a bit annoyed about the 2 last legends races...
Where does all these KIDS get the money to race here??
Not just do they make pile ups on the track. some even seems to just crash to gain places. And BEING RUDE ABOUT IT AFTERWARDS....

I was actually very close to disconnecting........ Luckily the ones that actually did come here to race did good and we did manage to avoid the traffic, but everything almost vent straight down on the last lap....... due to some kid... ALAN COLLINS, doing some strange things.. Actually when he spoke, he sounded like my daughter. And she is 3 years old... well in a few weeks. She might even be a pitch darker in the tone as well..


I hope this is not developing. Anyway. I have enough races to get me to next class when series end, but I also do wanna get a 4.00 rating (3.72 now)

I dunno. I dont like what I am seing. Maybe it is my pace that leaves me with these kids. I dunno.

Hope my next race will be better.
