Alfalla takes share of championship lead with Auto Club win
Two-time champion Ray Alfalla ( Slip Angle Motorsports ) took his first checkered flag of the 2016 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series in dominating fashion at Auto Club Speedway on March 29. Alfalla started on the outside pole and quickly asserted himself as the driver to beat by taking the lead on the opening lap from pole-sitter Cody Byus ( The TEAM ) and totaled a race-high 66 circuits at the front. PJ Stergios ( Last Row Motorsports ) finished second, five seconds behind Alfalla at the checkers for his fourth top-five finish in as many races. Kenny Humpe was third, his second top-five finish of the season. Allen Boes ( Deadzone ) finished fourth and David Rattler ( LockDown Racing ) played an alternate pit strategy to earn a fifth-place result. "This is one of my favorite tracks, and it feels nice to bring it home with the win," Alfalla said. Two weeks after a caution-free event at Phoenix, the caution flew twice in the first nine laps for a pair of incidents. First, Timmy Hill was sent spinning after contact with Justin Bolton. Hill was able to continue to a mediocre 23rd-place finish. Just a few laps later, Dillon Raffurty veered hard into the outside wall on the restart after experiencing technical difficulties. The crash would collect nearly a dozen cars and end the race for five sim racers, including Raffurty, who was credited with 42nd-place. After the two quick cautions, the rest of the 125-lap race was run caution-free, giving drivers with speed on the long run an advantage while also allowing varying pit strategies to play out. With tire wear once again a huge factor, drivers near the front chose to pit well before fuel became an issue. On the first run Alfalla fired off quickly and built a gap to the rest of the field but slowly began losing his gap as the run wore on. Since Alfalla was on a three-stop strategy, his total time given up was quite minimal and after performing some adjustments to his car, his long run speed improved in later runs. Despite the early troubles on the long run, Alfalla was never seriously challenged on speed the rest of the race. With the race seemingly in hand, other drivers lacking the outright speed to keep up with Alfalla tried a riskier two-stop pit strategy. Rattler and Andrew Fayash were two drivers willing to try the counter-strategy and Rattler in particular found success with it. Although his car was not as fast as the leaders, his long run speed was competitive and one less trip down pit road than the leaders saved him nearly 40 seconds on track. Instead of being stuck mid-pack, Rattler wound up leading 34 laps and was leading as late as Lap 111 before Alfalla overtook him on fresher tires. Though he fell short on picking up his first NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series win, a top five was just what Rattler needed as he moved up to 12th in the series standings. With a quarter of the 2016 season in the books, a quintet of drivers is in position to battle for the series title. PJ Stergios and Alfalla are tied for the points lead, 11 points ahead of Boes. Jake Stergios is another three points adrift, followed by Chris Overland, who sits four markers behind the second Stergios brother. Consistent top-five finishes have separated the front five drivers from the pack. Nick Ottinger, who is sixth in the championship, is 25 points behind fifth and 48 points -- equal to a full race -- behind the leader. In two weeks, the rest of the field will look to close in on the front five as the series heads to Texas Motor Speedway . The fast 1.5-mile track is aero-dependent and notoriously tough to pass on, making qualifying and pit strategy of high importance. Can past champions Humpe and Tyler Hudson spoil the fun of the top five, or will Texas see familiar faces at the front once again? Find out in two weeks' time when the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series takes to the Texas high-banks on iRacingLive!
Boes Wins Daytona after Wild Green-White-Checker
Allen Boes opened the 2016 NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series powered by iRacing.com season with a thrilling victory at Daytona International Speedway , beating Brandon Schmidt and PJ Stergios in an abbreviated green-white-checker run to the finish. Boes (Deadzone) found himself out front when the caution flew on Lap 94 of 100 for a crash further back in the field. The yellow allowed the leaders, who were all borderline on fuel, to conserve enough to go the distance and when the green flew on Lap 99 the battle for the win was on. Stergios started on the outside of the front row on the restart and began to make his move down the back straightaway, using a timely push from Schmidt (Last Row Motorsports). As Boes headed to turn three Stergios inched to his outside, but worn tires combined with a hot, slick race track were about to make turn three very interesting. Almost every single car overestimated the grip level and slid up the track. Stergios grazed the wall as he fought to stay alongside Boes then made contact with the race leader. The impact killed Stergios’ momentum, along with his chance at victory. The contact set up Schmidt to make a charge up the inside as the leaders came off turn four to take the white flag. Schmidt drew alongside Boes at the exit of the corner and the two cars came together. The contact sent Schmidt into a slide, just as Casey Tucker spun in front of the back half of the field. The caution flew before the leaders could take the white flag, with Boes just in front of a sliding Schmidt when the caution lights illuminated. Schmidt regained control and held onto second followed by Corey Vincent (Premiere Motorsports Group) and Timmy Hill (Aftermath Motorsports and current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver). Stergios faded to fifth after his brush with Boes and the turn three wall. Initially, the race looked as if it would come down to fuel mileage after a caution on Lap 51 which put many drivers into a window to go the distance without stopping again if they could save a couple laps of fuel. A handful of drivers including reigning NPAS champion Kenny Humpe (The TEAM) decided against saving fuel and pitted in hopes the rest of the field would run out before the finish. As the laps clicked down the strategy to pit appeared to have a chance at paying off as the pack of drivers who stayed out were running so slowly in an attempt to save fuel they were in danger of being run down by the cars with plenty of gas in the tank. Unfortunately, the late-race caution did not allow the differing strategies to play out. The drivers that pitted under green and were not involved in the crash had little hope of securing a good finish with just two laps of racing remaining. For the first time in the history of NPAS handling was an issue at Daytona. The drivers fought with ill-handling cars all race and passing proved difficult after the tires heated up. While the racing may not have been as close in years past, the race was more in the hands of the drivers instead of luck. Handling and a looser pack also contributed to less crashes as thirty-six cars finished the race, thirty-four of which were on the lead lap when the checkers flew. The NPAS will go without an off week between the first and second races of the season as Atlanta Motor Speedway is due up next Tuesday. Atlanta is the first 1.5-mile track of six such circuits on the schedule and the race should be a great litmus test for which teams have done their homework over the offseason. Boes will look to continue his recent hot streak on the intermediate tracks, which dates back to the NASCAR iRacing Pro Series, but Humpe and the rest of the NPAS veterans will likely be hard to beat. Who will come out of Atlanta in good position early in the season and who will have already dug themselves a hole? Tune into iRacingLive next Tuesday at 9 pm ET to catch the action!
