    I personally want to thank all the RD racers who participated in our 500 practice sessions and race - as a result of racing with you guys - I got my first win on iRacing, and it was the (well, an) Indy 500!.

    (it doesn't hurt when there's a caution at lap 160, all the other leaders stop for fuel - but I hold out knowing you couldn't make it - and they all run out of gas on the backstretch between lap 197-199. My stop that put me a lap down on lap 180 won me the race.

    Grats on the win. Reminds me of last years real Indy 500 where loads of people were low on fuel at the end.

    Thanks Guys. It was nice to know I actually could win a race. Next project: win #2 (hopefully less than a year and a half to the next one).

    Guess I'll have to get that D license in ovals now :).
