Welcome to Mod Zoo Racing Team!
MNPTECH and The Mod Zoo with myself have created an online racing league. If you enjoy motor sports then this sim (not a game) is for you.
 
This section will be for posting top 3  winners of each race. Schedule is set for 2 races each week,one for Road and one for Oval. Each season will be 12 weeks long dropping worst two for each driver essentially best 10 week season. This will help when drivers can't make a race.
 
As the sponsor of Mod Zoo Racing Team MNPCTECH will be offering prizes to top 3 winners each season. Prizes yet to be announced.
Special Thank You to Bill and his Team for this opportunity to this growing PC community.

First race in the record book!

Trucks @ Daytona 75 Lap  5/7/2014

 

We had a great turn out with a field of 20 drivers. Qualifying was very tight with just 5 tenths between first and last!

The 75 lap Daytona race went caution free! That really had drivers working on pit strategies for the whole race and making sure drafting partners pit stops were planning same tire and fuel amounts for the green flag stops.

 

Race winner Kyle Meeks was fast and smooth all day with very well executed pits stops,with Jeff T. Martin and Terry Belanger rounding out the top 3. Great race guys!

 

Congrats to Nathan Miller for his Top qualifying time of 52.369. +1 added for Pole Position.

Fastest race lap of the day set by Art Seeger with a blistering 48.800.

 

Yes there were couple crumpled fenders but nothing that threw a caution. Great driving keeping trucks under control!

That left top seven drivers on he lead lap.

 

What a great group of drivers with plenty of give and take till the end.

 

Thanks again Mod Zoo Racing Team for great turn out and an absolutely amazing race.

Daytona Corvette Classic #1 in the books.
 
We had 11 drivers in the field. With Brian Brewer sitting on the pole with a time of 1:44.396.
The start of the race proved to be a problem for Brian when Kerry W. bumped his read bumper in turn one and spun him out. Not the day Brian was looking for! 
That put Nathan and Marc battling for the lead most of the race. Several drivers were fighting for traction on the slick hot day in Florida.
Congrats to Nathan for the win,with Marc and Kerry following for 2nd and third place.
Brian Brewer was flying to try and regain a spot on top with fast lap of the race, 1:43.841.
 
Nice job guys!
1st place: Nathan Miller

Race #2 @ Charlotte
Crazy race at the 1.5 mile track last night. The hot summer day proved to eat up tires causing many to slide into the wall.

Race ended on one of the 4 cautions with total of 15 laps under yellow. Vincent Viney was able to bring it to the checkered in first with Art Seeger and Kyle Meeks close behind in 2nd. and 3rd. place.
Micheal Palmer sat on the pole with a 29.964 and fast lap of the race was Kyle's 30.089.

Great job to the whole MZR Team! Special thanks to Terry Belanger for the time he spent on the setup for the race,trucks handled great!
Video for the race in post #3 of this thread.

Another great turn out for the truck race at Dover. The one mile track held true to it's nickname the "Monster Mile"!
The concrete surface proved hard on tires and concrete wall were equally hard on the fenders, Marc recovered nicely from an early indecent to lead the final segment of the race but his tires just couldn't take the punishment required to hold off Kyle and Nathan's run to the finish line.

Great well deserved win goes out to Kyle Meeks with Nathan and Brandon following 2nd and 3rd place. Nathan put on a great charge at the end to try and take over the lead but rubbed the wall on last lap killing his drive out of the corner.

Great job to the entire Mod Zoo Racing Team!


Sorry for some reason screen shots are no longer working on my PC....when I get it fixed I will update it here.

Texas Race #5

Another great turn out for the MZR Truck series. Drivers were turning insane lap times last night with the iRacing fixed setups! Kyle sat on pole with a 29.315. 

Very tight racing all night long on a tough track that doesn't allow for easy passing. Track position is crucial! 

 

Kyle took that to the bank for the win with Micheal and Len close behind for the top 3 positions.

 

I would like to thank all the ModZoo drivers for a very clean race with only 3 cautions (one caused by me). 

 

See everyone in California next week!

Auto Club Speedway Race #6

 

What a great turn out for the tricky track in California! 27 drivers unloaded trucks to prepare for battle on the 2 mile long track with speeds and lap times that were VERY fast with the cool overcast day at the track.

 

Kyle sat on pole with a 41:089.

Only 4 cautions were posted in the long 80 lap event.

Kyle Meeks crosses finish line first with Len McNeese and JD Reyes following  closely for second and third place. 

 

It was a full house with 2 announcers in the booth along with 2 officials running race control to handle penalties.

Phoenix: Race #7

Well what can be said about Phoenix....What a mess of a race it turned out to be.

The short track proved to be a hand full for most of the drivers with the loose conditions on the old blacktop surface. Lap times were very fast but trucks were snappy loose and could be very unpredictable exiting the turns.

Kyle Meeks qualified 1ST. with a 28.578 with the entire field of 27 following with less than 1 sec between all the drivers.

The race ended up with 18 lead changes and 56 laps under the 14 caution flags!

Congrats to Mark Robertson for the win with Dwayne Dunn and Jamie Bullard for 2nd and 3rd.

Every single driver was involved in some sort of incident and most with several.

All the haulers head off to the mid-west state of Kentucky.

Another full field of drivers ready for the 85 lap race. Race started out with an early caution leaving drivers and crew chief scratching their heads on pit strategy.

 

Kyle Meeks sat on pole once again for a total of six so far this season,but fast doesn't always guarantee a win.

Nathan Miller was relentless with his quest for the top spot all night with a fierce battle with Dwayne and Kyle lap after lap.

 

Race was caution filled with a total of 8 burning up 32 laps in total, along with 13 lead changes.

 

Marc Nichols was probably the biggest mover of the night after getting caught up in early crash. He started back of the field and finally worked himself up to front row with an eventual finish in fifth place. Nice Job Marc!

 

Were getting down to the wire with only 3 races left in the season.

Off to Iowa for the 120 lap night race with 29 drivers entered. Racing was fierce all night that generated 8 cautions with 40 laps under yellow.

 

After 3 hours of testing all the crew chiefs agreed on a setup provided by the "White Lightning" Team driven by Terry Belanger and what a great setup it was,especially on the long runs.

Cool temps. along with night race proved a big help on tire wear.

 

Pole and fast race lap of the day was set by Teddy Wisniewski with a 23.223 and 23.324. He was untouchable during the race until a storm proved to much for his connection.

 

That left several drivers fight for the lead.

 

Graham Hood finally took the top spot with great pit and tire strategy. Marc Nichols held on for second with Brock Hubble challenging hard for his position.
