Dalton Collins Wins Throwback Time Machine 150

 

Carl Burk Victorious at Road America in Versatility Series

Monday, September 18th, 2017 :: Dalton Collins set the bar high early in the race Monday night, demonstrating that he had the best car when it counted and winning the All Pro SLM Series' Throwback Time Machine 150 at Myrtle Beach Speedway. Garrett Konrath looked to be the favorite after taking the pole position in qualifying, but it didn't take long to see that the 95 car of Collins was going to be the car to contend with all night. Collins, Mark McCrary, Travis Wright and Konrath dueled for the lead for most of the race, each taking their turns up front. A close call up front though, after McCrary and Collins touched sent all three of the leaders into a spin, but fortunately none were damaged and all three would return to battle. Collins made his way back to the lead inside the final 15 laps, as Konrath worked his way back into the top three after struggling late in the race. Matt Vaade positioned himself in the #2 spot after a valiant late effort, but had nothing for Collins. Collins took the win, followed by Matt Vaade, Garrett Konrath, Travis Wright and Justin Blackdeer, the top five finishers unofficially.

Garrett Konrath suffered a big blow in the post-race review, caught not self-penalizing for an incident on lap 108. This put him a lap down in the final standings. Hunter Lambert was also penalized a lap for failing to self-penalize for a yellow flag incident on lap 10. This dropped Konrath out of the top five, and moved Mark Royer into the top five.

Vaade, Wright and Blackdeer made a great showing for the Dick Trickle collection of tribute cars, putting three of them into the top five finishing positions.

 

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 :: Carl Burk would easily take the pole and drive off into another ZIP code at Road America. Jesse Williams would take a distant 2nd place with Matthew Tucket 3rd. Outside front row starter Mike Payton would suffer from a pit road mistake but recover to take 4th and Bobby Didomenico would round out the top five.

There were no post-race penalties.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Sim Racing - Getting Started

Question: How do I get started with simulated racing and iRacing?

Answer: You will need the following things, at minimum in order to participate in simulated racing with any of the iRacing "leagues", including here at All Pro Sim Racing League:

  1. A mid-range desktop gaming computer. Walmart.com markets a line of gaming computers called "CyberpowerPC". These are some of the most economical computers that I've seen, and readily available. CLICK HERE to see them. Don't skimp too much here. I recommend that you get the best one that you can afford, because as iRacing grows and adds new features, it becomes more demanding on the computer resources. The better the computer, the better the graphics and frame rates of your display. Here's the actual iRacing-published hardware requirements for running the service: CLICK HERE

  2. Computer steering wheel/pedal set. I recommend the Logitech G27, as it's a good balance of features and price. CLICK HERE to see one on Amazon.com.

  3. Desk w/chair or racing cockpit. The above steering wheel will mount to table tops up to one inch thick. Of course, racing cockpits such as the Playseat Evolution are hard to beat.

  4. High-speed internet. I mean DSL or Cable, not dial-up.

  5. iRacing.com member account. CLICK HERE for current pricing.


Custom iRacing Car Themes

Question: How can I use my custom car file on iRacing races here?

Answer: Current APSRL members - If you have a custom vehicle paint theme (car file) for any of the divisions that we are running for the 2013 season of racing and you'd like to add it to our TradingPaints.com car file lists, just use the CONTACT FORM on this website and submit to me your TradingPaints.com "view" link to each car that you'd like added to our lists. For example, in the comments field of the contact form, enter "www.tradingpaints.com/view/xxxxxx", where xxxxxx is your TradingPaints.com car file serial number. To find your car file link on TradingPaints.com, just log into the TradingPaints.com website and click on "Your Paint Schemes" on the right-hand side of the home page. In the Description column, click on the description of the car that you want the view link for. This will open a new browser tab and display the details of your selected car theme. At the top of that browser window, just copy or note the URL for the page, and put that URL link in the comments field of the contact form here, along with your other contact information, and submit it. Repeat this for each car file link that you would like for us to include on our league car file lists. To view our current car file lists, CLICK HERE, then search for "All Pro". Our official car file lists will show "Charles C Chamblee" as the creator. To download car files from our lists you will need the TradingPaints Desktop application. Download it HERE.

If you are looking for car file templates for iRacing, you can download them from the TradingPaints.com website.


Race Event Eligibility

Question: Can I participate in all races here if I'm a league member?

Answer: Registered APSRL members are automatically eligible for all races here EXCEPT for some special events, such as the All Pro Snowball Derby and the All Pro 400. However, all registered APSRL members may register for these special events using their respective registration forms, and can be approved to compete in these special events, subject to specific limitations as set by race policy.


Voice Control of Keyboard Commands

Question: How can I use my voice/headset to change between the different F screens and adjust my car during the race?

Answer: There are several voice command applications out there that will allow you to configure your computer to interpret your voice and enter key strokes accordingly. Most of them are pre-configured for popular RPG games, unfortunately iRacing isn't one of them. One in particular, called VAC (Voice Activated Commands) allows you to build custom profiles, or templates for iRacing, or any game or program for that matter. VAC is the only one of about four that I evaluated that I was able to get to work properly, in fact, it actually works very well. Check out VAC at the author's website at http://www.dwvac.com. You can download the free version and use it for up to 14 days, then register it for $18.00 and get the full version. I'm not sure if there's any difference in the two versions, but I'm a big fan of shareware, and I always pay for the products that I use past any evaluation period.


iRacing Promotion Policy

Question: How do you get promoted out of the Rookie class in iRacing?

Answer: Here's how it works:

Rookie: 
Rookies are required to participate in at least four official Time Trial sessions OR two official Race Sessions during the current 12-week racing season in order to earn a Class D license (provided their safety record meets the minimum standard) in a particular category.

Non-Rookie: 
All non-rookies are required to participate in at least four official Time Trial sessions OR four official Race sessions during the current 12-week racing season in the series in which they are licensed in order to be promoted (provided their safety record meets the minimum standard) in a particular category.

Official Races: 

For a race to be official, the race must meet the official minimum field size requirements. For a driver to be credited with an official race start, the driver must complete at least one lap in an official race session and receive championship points.

Official Time Trial:
A Time Trial is only official if a driver completes the required number of consecutive incident free laps and receives a Fastest “X” Lap Avg. time in the session.

Minimum Race Participation (MPR):
 Drivers must participate in a series with minimum license eligibility requirements that match the drivers current license level in a given category. Sessions in a series with minimum license eligibility requirements below the drivers current license level ("racing down”) will not count.

Example:
A driver with a Class D road racing license may complete the minimum participation requirements for the current season by competing in four Time Trials or four Race sessions in the Class D Skip Barber Race Series. But if the same driver runs sessions in the Advanced Rookie Solstice series (racing down), the sessions will not count towards his/her minimum participation requirement.

Minimum Safety Requirements: 
A driver must achieve and maintain a Safety Rating within a certain range to advance to the next license level. A driver can track his or her safety record by the Safety Rating number on each category-specific license.  

Drivers will start out with a Rookie License with a Safety Rating of 2.50 in each category. As they complete sessions safely, their Safety Rating will rise. Conversely, multiple incidents will cause their safety rating to fall.

Promotion:

Fast Track:  Drivers having earned a 4.00 Safety Rating at any point during the season and having met the MPR will be promoted to the next higher license level.  

End of Season:  Drivers having earned a 3.00 Safety Rating during the course of a season will be promoted to the next higher license level at the conclusion of that season (provided the minimum participation requirement is met).

Demotion

During the Season:  Drivers whose safety ratings drop below 1.0 at any point during a season, including participants in the Pro Series, will be demoted to a lower license level.  

Pro-License holders will have to improve their A level license to a  4.0 safety rating and only then will be automatically reinstated. Moreover, if they drop below an A level license, they will have to meet the requirements to work their way back up to an A level and the 4.0 safety rating.

Rookie and Class D License holders are not subject to in-season or end- of-season demotions.  

Class A drivers are subject to only demotions during the season unless said driver was demoted from a Pro-License.

End of Season:  Drivers with a 2.00 - 2.99 Safety Rating will remain at the same license level, and drivers with a Safety Rating below 2.00 will be demoted to the next-lower license level at the conclusion of the season.


About iRacing Incidents

Question: How is an incident defined in iRacing?

Answer: An incident is defined as any time you leave the racing surface, make contact with barriers or other fixed objects, or have contact with other cars. Incident points are displayed immediately upon occurrence at the top of your screen, in yellow text. Each incident is weighted differently:

  • Light Contact with Another Driver = 0x

  • Off Track = = 1x
    (2 or more tires off the racing surface)

  • Loss of Control = 2x
    (rotating 90 degrees or more to the direction of the track)

  • Contact = 3x
    (colliding with barrier or other object) = 3x.

  • Significant Contact with a fellow competitor = 4x
    (Anything above light contact. Also note that if you have any contact with another competitor that results in the other competitor losing control, hitting an object or otherwise receiving an incident penalty will also result in the same incident penalty going to you, as long as the other driver's incidents occur within 5 seconds of the initial contact)


Held on Pit Road Forever!

Question: Why do I get held on pit road for additional time when I show no repairs being performed?

Answer: With some of the vehicle types, particularly the late models (Chevy Monte Carlo SS) it takes a substantial amount of time to add fuel to them. Much longer than getting four tires. If you plan on making a green-flag pit stop, check your F4 panel first and set it to only add enough fuel to get you to the end of the race. If you forget and find yourself waiting on fuel that you don't need, you can just use the procedure below under "Aborting Pit Service" to take off whenever you're ready, assuming that you don't have any "required" repair work.


Aborting Pit Service

Question: How do I abort pit road service before it has been completed?

Answer: If you need to have your jack man drop the jack immediately and let you go before completion of your scheduled pit service work, just press and hold ESCAPE, then immediately click on the green DRIVE button to get released from your pit box and abort the remaining service. Note though, if you're getting "required" repairs then you must wait for them to be completed. However, if you're getting "optional" repairs then all you have to do to abort those is just put your car into 1st gear and hit the gas. All remaining optional work will be aborted immediately.


Requirements to join Multi-Vehicle Hosted Sessions

Question: Do I need to own all of the cars used in a hosted session in order to race in the session?

Answer: To race in a hosted session you need only own one of the vehicles being hosted, and the track being hosted.  When you attempt to join a session where you don't have all of the vehicle types being hosted you will be presented with the Update Manager.  Between the two Download buttons you'll see a section called, "Optional Unowned".  In that section there will be a link to "Download Optional" vehicles.  Click on the link, then select the vehicles that you want to download and download them.  There will be NO CHARGE to download any or all of the unowned vehicles.  You just won't be able to drive any of the unowned vehicles.  To watch or spot in a hosted session you must own all vehicle types hosted in the session.
