Hello, I decided today I will run the full 36 race NASCAR Nextel Cup Series schedule with a 2005 car set.

I will be driving the #86 Ron's Waste Disposal Chevy, render by @garrett1127


I will be running realistic weather, 42 AI cars at 85-95% depending on track, default fast setup, 10% race length, full damage and yellow flags.

Race #1 Daytona 500

In this race, I would start at the back of the pack on my own choice, my goal was to just survive. I made one attempt, but wrecked before half way, so I tried again.


Here I am a few laps in, passing cars in the back.


As I made my way into the top 30, I would make a bold 3 wide move, and make it stick


Here, I freaked out, and lost all spatial awareness, wiping out Michael Waltrip, but I would survive the wreck and lose no positions.


And here is the 3 wide finish for the 20th position. I enjoyed my first real plate race, though it was intense.

Here is the finishing order.
