Race 2 - 2021

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Press release: After Yellow in Front Forever star Andrew Fiddler was robbed of a promising finish in Longhorne when John Aston Racing’s Xander Louis dropped a load all over the track, the team clubbed together to help out the JAR team for the rest of the season. As the teams arrive in Ridgeway the JAR team will find a care package containing a set of Fisher Price “my first tools” and a season’s supply of sanitary pads and adult diapers for its drivers and crew. In a rare comment from the paddock, Andrew Fiddler said: “Keep your fluids to yourself, you’re not in the Dev series anymore.”
  • Jack Carmichael has a super week with his front row performance. "We made some changes underneath, and you can see--it worked, I think. Now we'll see what happens."
  • Dominic Jackson is shamed all over Twitter when an ugly confrontation with taunting fan gets on TV. Not a good look.
  • Jane Kinglet tries to put positivity on things but her luck looks out this weekend. "The conditions—I didn't think they were ideal. But we gotta be able to adjust to that and come up with a plan."
  • Yokum Schmidt is fined for dangerous driving during his qualifying lap, something we've not seen before. It wrecks his confidence for the later runs.
  • Dr. Strangeloaf is unhappy with his week, too. "I heard the other drivers saying some things about us. I just wanna say, we won't forget they said that."
  • Baker Mudfield also has a disappointing week, after his car is damaged in-transit from our previous race; he struggles mightily with his back-up car.
  • Ragnar Slipper gains press attention after last week's Press Release was wrongly credited to his teammate. "I outqualified him and outraced him," he is heard to remark.
