iRacing Trucks - Week 4 Daytona- Racing Recap and Points Breakdown

This is my recap from week 4 in the iRacing NASCAR trucks fixed series.  In this episode I work with iRacing pro Andrew Fayash on the secrets of speed that lay within Daytona.  We work on the outright speed that is required to get a good qualifying run in.  From there we move on to some of the tricks or skills required in pack racing that you would find at Daytona.  After a long practice session, and a good qualify run. it is time to get down to business and do some racing.

We recap the 5 races of the week and then break down the points to see how we did for the week, towards our season long goal.

I would like to thank Andrew Fayash III for all of his help in preparing for this weeks track.  You can check out his you tube channel where he has cool videos from both iRacing and real life dirt track racing that he does:

Hi Shaun,

the thing with the SR-boost is actually pretty easy. When you cross an X.00 threshhold the system doesn't multiply your gain/loss with some arbitrary factor but simply adds an +/- 0.4 SR.

So if you have a SR of 4.03 and you loose 0.04 SR points the system will take 0.44 points and you're at 3.59 instead of 3.99. I think this was implemented so people going from one license to another have a bit of a buffer and go clearly to the next level i.e. after fasttracking.

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.
