Racing clean is a mindset. You have to be focused on making clean, intelligent passes first and foremost. If you are focused on getting to the front fast then your racecraft will suffer. It’s the same rule as your hands follow your eyes in racing. If you look at the wall you will hit the wall. What you are focusing on shows clearly in how you drive. As much as you would like to just quickly get past these slow annoying guys and battle for points, you have to slow down and work for those passes. Your results will absolutely suffer but people will respect you and actually look forward to racing you rather than thinking “oh no this guy again” which I have felt on many occasions. In reviewing the replays I found more than a few instances where I made dumb rookie mistakes and bad decisions and I have a lot of things to work on too, we all do on some level. I had a wreck in front of me in race 2 and rather than checking up and getting through safely, I decided to just thundergun through like days of thunder, convinced that I saw the “hole”. Boom right into the side of poor Gunny who was trying to right himself and limp to the side of the track. I felt like an idiot.
