Get SVG & JDub’s rEcap from last night’s races at Charlotte & Daytona! 🇺🇸

"It was a pretty awesome night last night to bag 300 points. The oval at Charlotte was fun. I had a heap of mint battles throughout the race. Jamie was leading the race which was awesome, but unfortunately he got caught up which ruined his race. Luckily, I was able to hang on for the win on the outside line, held it flat and finished side by side with a few other cars – it was really fun. We then went to Daytona which I’ve raced at quite a few times in real life. I didn’t have to do as much practice there during the week as I know the track, but we had some good racing there too. I had a good battle with Anton (de Pasquale) in the first race. We really fought it out, but I managed to sneak past for the win. In the last race, there were a couple of guys out of position, so we had an easier run but still had to manage it to the end. It’s cool to be leading the Eseries championship, although there’s still three rounds to go so anything can happen. I just have to stay out of trouble, keep scoring points and keep having fun. A huge shout out to Armor All as well for donating $1000 to my designated charity, Wings for Life. Bring on next Wednesday."

"I had quite a good time on the sim last night – it was a bit of fun. I didn’t get a huge amount of time beforehand to practice, so I was a little bit nervous going into the races, but I was excited to qualify P6 in Charlotte. The biggest issue I had with my sim last night was braking again. Usually I would lean on the engineers to help resolve this problem, but they’ve been too busy getting the real race cars ready back at the workshop, so we just haven’t had time to fix those slight problems. At places like Watkins Glen and Charlotte, there’s no braking so I’m actually reasonably competitive. I started P6 and was leading the race with six or seven laps to go. I got a good restart under safety car then started getting passed by a couple of cars and then boom, got caught in an accident and finished almost last, again. Race 2 was reasonable, I ended up P12 which was an improvement considering the laps. Unfortunately, in the last race I got involved in an incident where I couldn’t pull up in time and that was that. All in all, it was a reasonable night. Now we’ve announced the revised calendar, my role within the Supercars Commission has been extremely busy, so I’m not going to have a huge amount of time to e-race in the coming weeks. I might call around and lean on one of the other lads to fill my spot for car #88, but we’ll no doubt make a decision in the coming days."
