This is a mid season recap of my first 3 weeks in the iRacing NASCAR fixed truck Series.  Just like the previous episodes we take a look at Homestead Miami, the venue for the third race of the 6 race season.  We start things off with a qualifying run to see a proper line, and then recap each of the weeks races including looking at the points from each race.  We are always looking for the good and bad moments from each race in an attempt to become better drivers.

With this being the mid point of our season, we then take a very detailed look at the overall points and how they were awarded each week.  We break down the irating, the safety rating and also the championship points.

And to finish off the show Shaun reflects on some of the things that were learned in the first three weeks.  He also looks for areas that can be improved upon moving forward.

I am so glad that people are learning from this series.  I rally wanted to make sure that this was about learning more then about me racing and it seems that it is working and people are finding easier to ATTACK a series of their choice be it road or oval.  

There is still so much more to cover in this process and we will keep them coming.

Great job on this Shaun. Nice to see you go through everything in racing this series. We can all benefit from this, and I have finally learned how points and iRating are figured! I like what you have done in the past on ISR, and especially now on the SimPit. Really helped me progress as a driver since I started iRacing back in 2012. Thank you!

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
