Today is the day. Its a 10 lap race to the championship and with less than 10 points separating the top 5 spots anything could happen. There are a few differences in the rules compared to the rest of the season. Since its only a 10 lap race the mandatory pitstop will be after 3 laps instead of 5 and the Sin Bin will have a 3 second delay instead of 1 second. Also, anyone who did not complete at least 2 races earlier in the season will not be eligible to race today.

So lets see some good clean racing and may the best driver win.

Don't forget to post your suggestion on what car to run next season on the Race Club forum or you can also send me a message on the Xbox.

It's race day again folks and my Starion is ready to go with a new paintjob. Hopefully everyone will be gawking and forget how to drive and I can sail right past to the checkered flag. (wishful thinking) But seriously, things are very close at the top of the overall standings and with the technical aspect of today's race we could see a shift in the leaders.

In other news, I have started a forum post on the Race site to discuss what car to run next season. I have also been in talks with Joe Cool about his SCCA races that he wants to start and we were thinking that since the Wednesday timeslot seems to have quite a few racers available that we would share it. Which means that Season Two would run on every other Wed. and Joe's SCCA would run on the opposite Wednesdays. That's not set in stone just yet but I wanted to throw it out there just to give everyone a heads up on what the possible future plans are at the moment.

That all for now. Good Luck Everyone.

Excellent race today. After 2 red flag starts the 3rd time was the charm and went off without a hitch. 12 racers started the race and 11 managed to cross the finish line. WildKirk and Joe elected to start at the back of the field and still managed to finish the race 1st and 2nd although Splat, Digi and Raven weren't too far behind them. As for myself, I managed to hold onto 2nd for the first 2 and half laps and finished in 8th. As always the replay can be found on my storefront by searching DJ CLASSIC S1R4 and be sure to watch Nolan's run down the back straight on the second lap for a great rolling wipeout. :)

1st - WildKirk - 12 points

Its the morning of Race day again folks and half the season is behind us. The top of the overall standings is very close. With only 3 points separating the top 4 spots anything could happen. As for my own place among the standings, at least I'm not last anymore and I've got another flashy new paint job to reveal. :)

Good Luck to Everyone.
