    Here or via PM doesn't really matter. I'm just interested in that cheeky-styled information that's sarcastic/humorous, as you'll see the live commentary may have some of that.

    As far as the race goes, it's, er, something I reckon. Interesting names here and there, a blown engine on lap 1, and unexpected front and rear runners.

    I was half right about the qualifying results, that doesn't happen often. Usually I'm 100% wrong about them. :lol: But congrats, @BKGlover, you have been on a roll as of late when it comes to B-Spec series.

    As for me, 11th isn't the best of results, but I'll take it, hopefully I'll be able to improve that position during the race itself. And Gerarghini in first place? This Championship is rigged! :dopey:

    Now, for trivia... Let's see...

    The time delay between the last two test race was due to Gerarghini's impending lawsuit regarding stolen Hot Wheels from a 5-year old child.

    Daytona Beach, Florida- It's been a tough start to the race weekend for the Swift Autosport team with none of their trucks being inside the top 10. When team owner Seth Smith was asked about practice he simply replied "It's still early in the weekend we'll get the bugs worked out." This coming after the #10 Menards Ford driven by Paul Phisher suffered an engine failure and the team had to go to a back up motor.

    Daytona Beach, Florida- After a rough practice session seeing the teams fastest car be just outside the top 10 and the slowest being 20th with a blown engine. After missing the first 5 minutes of qualifying the team sent out all four of their cars together. After just 1 lap of qualifying the #50 Bandit Chippers.com Ford driven by Tim Kourting suffered an engine failure much like Paul Phisher earlier in the weekend. The other three drivers continued to click laps while the team works on figuring out what's making the teams engines expire like they are. Shortly after qualifying session 1 ended the right front tire on the #10 truck blew throwing the car towards the outside wall collecting his teammate in the #1 truck. Both trucks were torn up badly. We tred talking to Seth Smith after qualifying but we were met by the teams PR women Shannon Goodwin who told us Seth would not like to comment right now but will make a statement before the race.
    Qualifying Result (Highest to Lowest): #6 (8th), #1 (12th)(To Backup Car), #10 (15th)(To Backup Car), #50 (21st)(Engine Change)

    Image is broken :p

    And sure thing, just select a make, number, sponsor or two (for announcer purposes), and a team if you want and you'll be all set.

    I say we keep the team name simple, like GT Racing or whatever.

    Would you guys mind if I put some race spoiler up now, or until the race is uploaded? This info won't be who won but rather stuff like how many laps the leader led, manufacturer championship updates and whatnot.

    Also @Jahgee1124 what scheme are you planning on using for the 250. I currently have your Pepsi scheme, but I'll hazard a guess and say you'd like your Dupont one for this event?

    EDIT: And here are the renders which I will update the OP with after round 1 is out. Make sure your trucks are on point :sly:

    ...On second thought, keep me on Toyota. This is a less serious series, after all. :lol:

    If all goes to plan the race will be posted tomorrow since there's no way I'm missing tonight's race :sly: In the meanwhile I will record and edit the footage.

    Also I'll ask that if anyone wants a scheme done, I'll be capable of doing so, if only to get more people in the series. Even if you'd like an updated scheme, I can deliver :sly:

    For anyone who is a bit nr2003 savy, I ask for some help. There's a download on nnracing for trucks with edit the roof camera with any one of the ones supplied. I ask if there's a way to re-assign the downloaded cams so I can replace, let's say the "Left Side" camera one, instead of the roof one.

    Really nothing new to report other than college and band taking priority over this series.

    I am working on updating truck schemes with a new contingency package and getting all the tracks up and running, so there has been work done behind the scenes.
