    Hey @Zoom I re-added the flats. Wasn't aware anything was wrong with them, if at all.

    Been sick the past few days and not checking as active as I was.

    Quick recaps for the duels from yesterday. The race will be run this evening.


    DJ Harris takes Duel #1, makes last lap pass on Caudill for win

    Duel1Results.png

    The first of two duels took to the track yesterday in Daytona with Matt Wichelman leading the way. Early on there was plenty of action and 3 wide racing but two drivers quickly showed their early speed out front. Joshua Hawkins and John Hooper, Sr. were the duo to beat in the first half of the race. They controlled the race for the most part until a crash as we were about to begin green flag pit stops just past halfway. JJ Jordan won the exhibition race last weekend but did not find the same luck in the duels, he gets turned trying to slow down for pit road and collects Bleskachek, Maulana, and Craigo. Jordan with the damage would lose a lap and be off pace the rest of the race. Craigo had minor damage but was unable to keep pace with the draft on the restart. The race resumed with 20 laps to go and it was a two horse race at the front. Caudill and Harris swapped the lead several times in the closing stages but in the end DJ Harris makes his move on the final lap to take the win in Duel #1 and secure the 3rd starting spot for today's race.

    Defending champion Ingram dominates but teammate Busch wins Duel #2

    Duel2Results.png

    Duel #2 was much more organized than the first. Darren Ingram wasted no time putting the #2 out front and controlling the race with most of the field running single file early on. Very little action in this race as the drivers stayed single file until green flag pit stops. After the stops it was a 4 car breakaway out front. 2 Xtreme Motorsports cars and 2 English Motorsports cars. Bobby Farrell and Jeremy Zumwalt worked together to keep themselves ahead of Darren Ingram and Dan Busch but in the closing laps the 9 and 2 worked together and made their move to the front at the finish and held off the two Fords. Slow stops for the 95, 98, and 97 meant they lost the draft and fell behind at the finish.

    I think we'll be fine if we stay in the pack.

    "Great start to the weekend winning our duel. Means we have a great starting spot and a strong car in race conditions. Have to thank my teammate Darren for the help. We planned to stick together all race long and we did that. The plan worked perfectly. Hopefully we can do the same thing in the big race and get the same result."

    "We showed that these Xtreme cars have got some good speed in race trim. Wish we could have won, but if we've gotta lose to someone, I guess the bossman is alright, ha."

    RB- Typical Daytona, we were just riding there trying to set ourselves up for the end and got caught up in that mess. Really lucky to come away without much damage, so we'll be able to repair it and avoid having to go to a backup car

    "Not the best Duel for the 98 team. At least we don't need to go to a backup, I think we only got a minor bodywork damage on the right-hand side of the Toei Animation Camaro, we will be able to repair it for the big race."

    "Welp, that could've gone better for us. Glad to see that Hawkins has speed in his #11 Dodge. Just gotta figure out a way to stay out of trouble on Sunday, and find some speed in RJ's car as well."

    A bit delayed to get the car race-ready, but we're good to go now. Let's obtain this grain.

    "Welp, we're not starting last tonight but it shouldn't really matter. We've got a few things we'll have to work on but I'm confident we've got a race winner here."
