I can only figure you read my page http://www.beemaster.com/site/nascar/nascar.html
where I really laid out my feelings on the sim. Talking mostly about my drafting experience and love for super speedways.
Truex is a Jersey Boy, he raced a long time (relatively speaking) at Wall Stadium, our 1/3 mile 30 degree banked asphalt track - truly a mini Bristol with about 6000 seats from turns 4 to 1. He went out with a coworkers sister for some time and even had some fix-it jobs on his cars done by my coworker during work hours which got him in some serious hot water.
I know MOST of the young guns race sims before and after the race, they don't think twice about doing 200 MORE sim laps after racing 500 real ones - amazing and THAT should tell anyone who thinks these things are "video-games" to think again!
Let's hookup some time if possible. I ranked a 7 at Sierra and almost made an 8 when it was taken down, amazing how exponentially harder it is to increase as you climb. It really gets down to pitting then, mistakes on the track happen, but nowhere in Nascar do you screw up as you do entering, pitting and exiting - whether getting out of packs on super speedways or just locking them up and speeding into the entrance. Sooooo much fun, WOW!
Single most trill for me is 3 wide on the bottom of the track at Taladega and fighting tire wear into 1 and 3 - if that doesn't get your blood pumping, you're in a coma
