IndyCar at Laguna Seca, NASCAR at Kansas, iRacing Weekly Review, F1 in Vegas Concerns

We kick off the show this week by doing our iRacing Weekly Review: Behind Closed Doors (IR-18 IndyCar league) at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Wednesday Night Dash (ARCA League) at Irwindale Speedway. We talk about our struggles, fuel mileage strategy issues, and other problems. Next, we talk about the IndyCar finale at Laguna Seca and the struggles that the drivers went through on a newly paved Weathertech Raceway. We think the final number is 20 of the 28 cars were involved in some kind of incident. What went wrong? Who is to blame? We discuss. We then shift over to talking NASCAR at Kansas Speedway with Tyler Reddick's overtime heroics to win and we talk about how evil the NASCAR scheduler was to pick the tracks at elimination points (Daytona, Bristol night race, Charlotte Roval, and Martinsville). Finally, we end discussing the upcoming Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix and all the issues we're seeing between low demand for high-priced hotel rooms, alleged completely empty flights in the days leading up to the event, the high "licensing" costs, MGM's cyberattack struggles, and possibly a worker strike happening at the end of September. Will this event be a total bust?


Wednesday Night Dash the season started July 26th at 10 pm Eastern in the ARCA Menards series cars. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Registration is open now⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠! The schedule has been expanded to 10 races and the season fee has been reduced to $40. We'll pro-rate your entry if you join late! 

Behind Closed Doors returned August 11th at 10 pm eastern in the Dallara IR-18 cars once again.  ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Registration is open now⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ and is FREE! We're hoping to keep the IR-18 alive until the broadcast ban on the car is lifted.
