F-R Racing's Garage Talk - Stadium Scene

About F-R Racing's Garage Talk:

Member Since: 06-03-2022

F-R Racing was started by two long-time friends who decided that they wanted to break into the racing world as team owners. Unfortunately, they both lacked the proper funding and experience to start a team. When the iRacing system came along, this became the opportunity for F-R Racing to become a real thing.

F1 in Japan, Indy 500 Testing, Kyle Larson, Upcoming iRacing Schedule

We're back and we kick the show off by discussing the state of Formula 1 after Max returns to his spot on the podium (ha ha). Is Daniel Ricciardo's seat in jeopardy? Next, we discuss the IndyCar schedule, oval racing, and Kyle Larson's performance during test day. Is Kyle the best all-around driver in the world right now? No matter what kind of car he steps in, he does it extremely well. After that, we discuss the iRacing season with a preview of the upcoming Wednesday Night Dash Truck Series starting on April 17th and a recap of our first trip to the road course during the Indy Racing World Series. It was a rough night for many drivers, resulting in a major shift in the standings. Finally, we briefly discuss our first community GT race on Saturdays.

Garage Talk - D.J. wins at Auto Club Speedway, Richmond Controversy, The Indy/Charlotte Double

D.J. finally got his first win during the Indy Racing World Series at Auto Club Speedway last Tuesday. A very bold fuel strategy gamble allows him to hold off the rest of the field and snap his iRacing winless drought. We spend the first part of the show breaking down the race on  @Stadiumscene  and D.J.'s mindset during his extreme fuel-saving methods over the last 30 laps of the race. Next, we move on and discuss Denny Hamlin's controversial restart during overtime at Richmond. We also discuss NASCAR's "response" to the call and question what do you do to fix something like that? Finally, as we get closer to May we discuss the drivers who have pulled off the "double" of running both the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600. Kyle Larson looks to become only the second driver to complete all 1100 miles between the two races (Tony Stewart, 2001 being the other). D.J. misread an article and stated Kurt Busch also completed 1100 miles in 2014, but that was not correct. Finally, tune in for our all-new monthly racing special Saturday at 9am ET on Stadium Scene TV from iRacing Indianapolis Motor Speedway! The F-R Racing Endurance Team will be running monthly races in a GT Sprint-style setup to focus on development and preparation for official events on the iRacing platform. D.J. and Taka will have the call.

D.J. jinxed Max Verstappen, IndyCar at Thermal Club, NASCAR at COTA Recap

Did D.J. jinx Max Verstappen at the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix? You decide and we discuss. Also check out our LIVE Raceway live stream from the event last week and judge for yourself! We recap the race, Carlos Sainz's dominating win, the odd penalty given to Fernando Alonso after George Russell wrecked and more! Next we move on and discuss the Thermal Club $1 million dollar challenge (even though the winner got $500k and the top 3 purse was over $1 mil?). Was this event interesting? Should it happen again? Finally, we move onto NASCAR's trip to Circuit of the Americas. We had an exciting weekend of racing with Marco Andretti's rear axel breaking off of his truck while driving, SVG getting into the back of Austin Hill on the last lap of the Xfinity race, and Kyle Busch upset at Christopher Bell in the Cup race.

D.J.'s Phoenix Raceway Visit, Boring Racing, and More F1 Off Track Drama

D.J. visited Phoenix Raceway last weekend for the spring Xfinity race, visited the garages, ran into Brad Keselowski, and saw Josh Berry's qualifying wreck up close. How was the overall experience? Watch and find out. We move on and re-cap the weekend in racing, where the highlights were pretty limited outside of Ollie Bearman's impressive debut for Ferrari (and having to return to school on Monday). We also look into the fan's calls to move Championship weekend away from Phoenix Raceway, but what are reasonably the options to host a race in early to mid-November? We discuss. Erik came close to winning at Homestead during the Indy Racing World Series. We break down his final lap heartbreak and D.J.'s self-spin that cost him a chance at the win. We also break down Wednesday Night Dash at Dover and leading up to the finale.

iRacing in the Rain, F1 Drama, WND at Texas, and NASCAR at Phoenix

We have a packed show this week starting with the long awaited release of the iRacing Tempest weather system (rain). We ran a test session earlier in the week from Daytona in heavy rain to experience what the driving was like and came away very impressed. The reviews so far have been largely positive and we'll see how this impacts the endurance events moving forward. Next we discuss Wednesday Night Dash visit to Texas Motor Speedway. Tire management played a major factor in the final results. D.J. talks about his "hug the line" strategy and braking into turn 1 that helped him while start slow, move up for a 4th place finish. Erik did one better and finished P3! We moved on and discussed the soap opera that is Formula 1. What the heck is going on at Red Bull? Do we have a bigger scandal brewing? Will Max, Newey, and Marko actually leave if Christian Horner isn't replaced? Reportedly Ford isn't happy with the situation either and is exploring ending their agreement with Red Bull already. Finally we close out with a discussion of D.J.'s upcoming weekend trip to Phoenix Raceway.

iRacing Daytona 24 preview with Tyler Vickery, Colton Gardner, and Hunter Hughes

We have a very full house on today's episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk! Erik and D.J. are joined by not only Wednesday Night Dash drivers, but F-R Racing Endurance Team members, Tyler Vickery, Colton Gardner, and Hunter Hughes (by phone). F-R Racing will be entering two teams into the iRacing Daytona 24 this year and we talk to the drivers about the upcoming weekend. The primary team will be fielding an LMP2 entry and features Erik Richardson, Mark Vicars, Ian Miller, Hunter Hughes, and Tyler Vickery. The second entry is in the GTP class with Colton Gardner, Andrew Hewitt, Derek Booker (from our BCD series), and newcomers Jackson Wade & Jacob Manning. Tyler has not raced endurance with us previously, but his normal team was unavailable for the event. Tyler has won this event two years in a row and looks to make it three years in a row. He talks about his experience with settling in as you get into the long hours of the event. This will be Colton's first long endurance race. He's spent the last year preparing in GT3 Ferrari Challenges and looks to gain valuable experience. Hunter ran the Daytona 24 last year and the Petit Le Mans in October with F-R Racing. He talks about dealing with the lows of the event when it comes to getting in wrecks that are your fault and ones that are not your fault. Inspiring messages to listen to. Tune into Stadium Scene TV (Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch) on Saturday, January 20th at 7:30 am ET for live coverage of the iRacing Daytona 24!

WND Returns, IndyCar returns to iRacing, Daytona 24 Preview, AFSP 200 Charity Race

Hope your 2024 is starting off well! Erik, D.J. and Taka are back with the first new episode of 2024. We kick off the show by announcing that Taka has now become our Business Manager at F-R Racing. Taka has been working with us providing social media updates during Wednesday Night Dash and working behind the scenes to help grow F-R Racing to what it is today and he's ready to step in to help us take it to the next level!

Wednesday Night Dash is also back after the off-season and we couldn't have picked a more difficult track to restart with after a long break. Rockingham Speedway is incredibly bumpy and is not very forgiving.Next, we discuss the upcoming iRacing Daytona 24 and how F-R Racing could be entering three cars, GT3, LMP2, and GTP! We'll have more details next week as we get ready for the big event!

After that, we discuss the long-awaited return of IndyCar to iRacing! Several experts in the field (and us) criticized IndyCar for signing an exclusive games deal with Motorsport Games only to not deliver much of anything. The iRacing Indy 500 will be back and we're looking to put two entries into the field. Also this licensing change will result in major changes to the Behind Closed Doors Series. We'll have more details in the upcoming weeks.


Finally, we are about two weeks away from the AFSP 200 racing money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We're excited to partner with WJ Muhlfeld Motorsports and the AFSP to host this amazing event. Learn more and join the field at frracingonline.com/afsp200. The event starts at 9:15pm ET on January 27th.

2023 Season Finale, F1 Season Wrap, NASCAR's New TV Deal

Now that the Formula 1 season is done, it's time for us to take a little time off from the show, but we'll be back in early January! Erik and D.J. kick off today's show talking about the end of the Formula 1 season, how Max Verstappen's dominance will go down in the history book + TV ratings if he keeps it up, Alfa Romeo's brand out the door, and Monster Energy leaving Mercedes for McLaren. After a little throwback 90s diecast talk throwing out names like the late Dick Trickle, Buckshot Jones, and others we get on to discussing the new NASCAR TV deal. We really break down NASCAR's shocking TV deal including four partners (FOX, NBC, TNT, and Amazon Prime Video). How will the five races impact the older demographic who haven't embraced streaming? Allegedly the networks are barely breaking even from the last deal, how will they turn a profit this time around and will that negatively impact the broadcast? D.J. breaks down how the model of sports on TV is rapidly changing and in many ways we're returning to the ways of 20-30 years ago with sports on local TV. The well publicized failure of Bally Sports via Diamond Sports Group and several professional teams returning to local TV to broadcast their games. How will the cable companies adapt?

F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix Recap and Wednesday Night Dash Schedule Reveal

D.J. is back from his illness last week (mostly).  We kick off the show talking about D.J. taking on the flu and food poisoning at the same time and how at one point his wife had to call 911 and have paramedics come to the house because things got really bad.


After a brief discussion about safety, SAFER barriers, and deaths during the 24 hours of Le Mans in the 50s and 60s we go on and talk about an event we've heavily criticized over the course of this year, the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.  We recap the week starting from the damage caused by the drain cover to Carlos Sainz's car and the ridiculous 10-position grid penalty he faced for it, the cold weather causing chaos with grip,  the ridiculous Vegas opening ceremonies, and much more.  That's all before we even get to the start of the race.


We break down the race and how it was actually quite exciting.  We talk about Max's penalty, words for the stewards, his accident with George Russell, and oh he still won.  Also more on Lando Norris' crash, Lewis' puncture,  Haas and Williams' great qualifying runs, but poor races, and so much more!


Finally, we get to what we know you've been waiting for, the unveiling of the Wednesday Night Dash Season 8 schedule (skip to 40:30)! We're back in the Next Gen Cup Car in January and will be visiting some tracks that WND has never visited and also visiting some that we've never been to in the Cup car.  It's going to be an exciting season and you should join us!

NASCAR Championship Weekend Recap, Formula 1 at Brazil

Erik and D.J. kick off this all new episode with some trivia! Now that Kevin Harvick has retired, who are the five most experienced drivers (based on debut date) in the NASCAR Cup Series? Listen and find out!

First off, time to recap the entire championship weekend starting with the disaster of a Craftsman Truck Series race on Friday Night that resulted in several overtime restarts, Corey Heim seeking revenge on Carson Hocevar likely costing Grant Enfinger a title, and more.

Next, we move on and discuss D.J.'s trip to Phoenix Raceway for the Xfinity Series Championship race, D.J. missing out an opportunity to see the Garage 56 car in person, but otherwise seeing a great race with Cole Custer taking the season championship. We move onto Sunday and discuss Ryan Blaney vs Ross Chastain's battle and NBC largely ignoring Ross' win and focusing on Blaney. We do note that if you're old enough to remember the Winston Cup (pre-playoff) finales, it wasn't common for the Championship Winner to win the race and TV largely ignored the race winner to focus on the season champion.

Finally, we close out the show after a brief technical difficulty of D.J.'s Internet cutting out discussing Formula 1 at Interlagos. Topics include the severe weather during qualification, Charles LeClerc's incident during the formation lap, Alex Albon and Kevin Magnussen's wreck on the first turn of lap 1, and the exciting battle for 3rd between Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez.

Next up is the much criticized, but highly anticipated Las Vegas Grand Prix! We'll be hosting Garage Talk LIVE Raceday during the broadcast on our streaming channels (Facebook, Twitch, YouTube). Erik will most likely be late to the event so we'll be announcing D.J.'s guest co-host here soon!

NASCAR Martinsville Recap, Phoenix Preview, Checo's bad day at the Mexico GP

Erik and D.J. are back with another episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk! We kick off the show discussing the events at Martinsville from Ryan Blaney winning, to Richard Childress's No Good Very Bad Day. D.J. defends Sheldon Creed and his actions (his car "broke" during his "check-up" which has since resulted in a public apology from Andy Petree) and criticizes Petree for unprofessionally confronting Creed in public view followed by the unacceptable comments made by Richard Childress.


In the second half of the show, we split time previewing the upcoming weekend in Phoenix and discussing if Phoenix should host championship weekend. There have been a lot of calls to move the championship back to Homestead. D.J. who will be at the races this weekend has a surprising opinion on the matter.

iRacing Fun Races, F1 in Austin, NASCAR at Homestead

In today's F-R Racing's Garage Talk, Erik and D.J. are joined by F-R Racing's Social Media Specialist, birthday boy, and newest Race Control guy, Taka Timmerman. The three talk about the Wednesday Night Dash end-of-year "fun race" where we thought it would be a good idea to mix Craftsman Truck Series Trucks on the same track as the old NASCAR Gen 4 cars at the old configuration of Atlanta Motor Speedway. The race ended up being a lot of fun and extremely challenging when it came to tire management. Despite the fact D.J. was the last truck standing and essentially won the truck class by default, he was still in a celebratory mood by quoting Cal Naughton Jr from Talladega Nights.


We move on and discuss the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas. First how the drivers universally dislike the sprint weekends, how Max Verstappen had issues with his brakes, and the disqualification of Lewis Hamilton and Charles LeClerc over a piece of wood under the car.

We close out the show talking about NASCAR at Homestead and what we're going to do the rest of the year now that the WND season is over and NASCAR/F1 will be wrapping up soon.

WND iRacing Season In Review, iRacing Improvements, NASCAR at Homestead and F1 in Austin

Erik and D.J. are back this week to close out the 2023 Wednesday Night Dash season with a year in review discussion of the ARCA league. We talk about the many lows and how one coaching session with iRacing ARCA Legend, Justin Yee turned D.J.'s season around and gave him a lot of confidence moving forward.

Before getting into that season, D.J. discusses why his current state as a hockey fan is "Arizona Coyotes Apologist" and why he is on board with why they should remain in the Phoenix market and can be successful in the Phoenix market.

We also throw back to some old IRL discussion from the late 90s including Greg Ray winning at Atlanta Motor Speedway and A.J. Foyt backhanding Arie Luyendyk Sr at a night race in Texas in 1997.

We close out the show talking the upcoming weekend of NASCAR at Miami Homestead Speedway and Formula 1 coming back to the states for the second of three trips.

iRacing Petit Le Mans Recap, Driving The Dallara IR-18, And F1 Hot Weather

A big week for iRacing content on this week's F-R Racing's Garage Talk! We kick off the show by recapping the iRacing Petit Le Mans 10-hour endurance race from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in the LMP2 class. Erik recaps his 2.5-hour racing stint and the challenges of remaining focused during that time. We talk about great runs from Ian Miller (who led our first-ever endurance laps), Hunter Hughes (who was wrecked by a weaving LMP2 car), and Mark Vicars closing out the late stint with a strong run chasing down and almost catching a car that started the stint up multiple laps. P10 in the class and P16 (of 38) overall was a great performance considering that if you subtract the repair time, the team would have finished P2 in class and P8 overall behind six hypercars and the LMP2 winner.A strong performance from both Erik and D.J. in this week's iRacing Behind Closed Doors from Nashville Superspeedway led to the team's first-ever 1-2 finish (Erik winning) in a league race. We recap the challenge of the fuel strategy race and how both cars were very close to running out of fuel when taking the checkered flag. We close out the league racing discussion with our mixed results during Wednesday Night Dash from Homestead Miami Speedway. Finally, we close out the show with a brief Roval discussion and the heat challenges of the Qatar Grand Prix including a driver throwing up, one driver retiring due to almost fainting in the car, and Alonso asking permission to have a bucket of cold water dumped on him during a pit stop.

Thank you once again for tuning into F-R Racing's Garage Talk! In this week's episode we recap the week in our iRacing Leagues, first with the Behind Closed Doors IR-18 IndyCar league heading to Belle Isle, Erik's 2nd place finish, and D.J.'s even more shocking 3rd place finish. Next we move onto discuss Wednesday Night Dash (on  @Stadiumscene ) with a trip to Nashville Superspeedway. Erik had a rough night first with his car "blinking" due to Internet issues, followed by a wreck. The surprising story of the night is D.J.'s 4th place finish including chasing down the #22 who had a 2.6 second lead with 5 laps to go. Next, we move on and talk Formula 1 at Suzuka, Checo's rough weekend, Logan Sargeant's very rough weekend, Red Bull locking up the Constructors title, and the very weird ways Max Verstappen has and could win his championship next week. We close out by talking briefly about IndyCar losing the Texas race and the VERY HOT weekend in Texas for NASCAR. Kyle Larson throws one away late, Bubba finishes 3rd, and William Byron takes the win! We break it all down and discuss how the hot weather played a role in the race.

"I beat your favorite driver. All of them.", F1 at Singapore Finish, iRacing Lessons Learned

Thank you again for listening to F-R Racing's Garage Talk! This week we start out talking about the Bristol night race and how Denny Hamlin has taken on the role of "NASCAR Villain" this season. It's clear he's enjoying and embracing the role with this "I beat your favorite driver. All of them." line.

Next, we briefly touch on the world of IndyCar now that the offseason is underway and how most of the driver field is set for next year. We spend time talking Formula 1 and the "rare struggles" for Red Bull with both cars missing Q3 and Max missing the podium for the first time all season.

Finally, we close out the episode recapping the week in iRacing with Behind Closed Doors at Phoenix Raceway and Wednesday Night Dash at Chicagoland Speedway. D.J. discusses his improvements and the first time he feels he raced aggressively, which ultimately ended in a crash of his own doing and ending his night early. Erik talks about his changing strategy on the fly and how it almost put him into a podium position had he maybe had a few more laps.

IndyCar at Laguna Seca, NASCAR at Kansas, iRacing Weekly Review, F1 in Vegas Concerns

We kick off the show this week by doing our iRacing Weekly Review: Behind Closed Doors (IR-18 IndyCar league) at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Wednesday Night Dash (ARCA League) at Irwindale Speedway. We talk about our struggles, fuel mileage strategy issues, and other problems. Next, we talk about the IndyCar finale at Laguna Seca and the struggles that the drivers went through on a newly paved Weathertech Raceway. We think the final number is 20 of the 28 cars were involved in some kind of incident. What went wrong? Who is to blame? We discuss. We then shift over to talking NASCAR at Kansas Speedway with Tyler Reddick's overtime heroics to win and we talk about how evil the NASCAR scheduler was to pick the tracks at elimination points (Daytona, Bristol night race, Charlotte Roval, and Martinsville). Finally, we end discussing the upcoming Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix and all the issues we're seeing between low demand for high-priced hotel rooms, alleged completely empty flights in the days leading up to the event, the high "licensing" costs, MGM's cyberattack struggles, and possibly a worker strike happening at the end of September. Will this event be a total bust?

Moving on before getting to the IndyCar update, we talk about the latest update from Motorsport Games, first with losing the NASCAR license, but we look a little deeper at their financial results from last quarter and they aren't good. There is cause for concern that the IndyCar game may never happen. We also talk about the best looking cars from CART in the 1990s.

Next we talk NASCAR at Daytona, Chase Elliott missing the playoffs, and Ryan Preece's scary wreck. We talk about upcoming contract situations in Formula 1 including maybe one where we now have an update after we recorded this episode.

Talking Racing Movies, IndyCar Silly Season, iRacing Road Courses

Erik and D.J. are back this week and we kick off the episode by talking about the week in iRacing, first D.J.'s (brief) surprise appearance on Tuesday's Behind Closed Doors series at his arch-enemy track of Laguna Seca and then the struggles we both had on Wednesday Night Dash at Watkins Glen. There's a lot to discuss and review after a bad week.

Next, we move on and discuss IndyCar silly season with the announcement of Marcus Ericsson moving to Andretti, where David Malukas will end up, and other driver shifts for all teams not named Penske. The tracker posted on Reddit showed subtle references to the 2001 movie, Driven.

If you haven't seen the Stallone and Burt Reynolds movie, you should because it is hilariously bad.

IndyCar and NASCAR at Indianapolis, iRacing League Racing, Indy Oval Discussion

Erik and D.J. are back this week with an all new episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk! In this week's episode we talk about week 2 of the iRacing Behind Closed Doors Dallara IR-18 Series and D.J. making an appearance during the Iowa Speedway race. We talk about Erik's dominant day, D.J.'s podium despite his mediocre day, and we talk turn 3 and 4 strategy.

Next, we move on and talk about Michael McDowell's big win in the NASCAR race, Scott Dixon's win and Graham Rahal almost catching him, and the struggle of International Drivers (outside of SVG) at the Cup Series Race.

Finally, we move onto the rumor that NASCAR will be returning to the oval at Indianapolis next year. An important step to having a successful event is to fill the stands and looking at attendance over the weekend it wasn't great. Why not offer cheap tickets to next year's race? What would be better, selling 0 tickets that are priced $60-100 or selling 100,000-150,000 tickets at $10, $15, or $20 a piece? Bring Indy 500 like numbers to a NASCAR race and the sponsors will be lining up at the door.

Erik and D.J. are back with another episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk!

Erik also recaps the first week of the Behind Closed Doors IR-18 iRacing series. Next Erik shares his experience with visiting Michigan International Speedway and how horrendous the parking experience is. We talk about the race, Tyler Reddick's radio profanity, and Chris Buescher winning again.

We also briefly discuss the Behind Closed Doors season that starts on Tuesday, August 8th. See below for a link to sign up for our free Dallara IR-18 iRacing league.

Erik goes to Iowa Speedway, Wednesday Night Dash iRacing Recap

Erik is back from Newton, Iowa and he has a lot of stories to share about his experience at Iowa Speedway. We talk about how he acquired one of the official event signs, his experience at Hy-Vee the big sponsor of the event, the race itself, a surprise heavy rain storm, and the Kenny Chesney and Carrie Underwood concerts at the event.

Next, we move on and talk a little Formula 1 and Denny Hamlin's "moves" at Pocono. Were they dirty? Was it a crafty veteran move? We discuss.

We also get off-topic and talk about bands that we probably should be ashamed to admit that we like, but aren't. That discussion spills over into getting around album parental labels as kids and setting up Bloodhound Gang band reference liveries for a Pocono race.

iRacing Intentional Wrecking, Wednesday Night Dash Preview, IndyCar at Iowa

Erik and D.J. are back and talk about the Wednesday Night Dash exhibition race at Auto Club Speedway and hype the upcoming season in the ARCA Menards cars (see below for a link to join the league). We also unveil the new play-by-play announcer and it's someone you already know if you've ever watched Wednesday Night Dash!

During the segment, we talk about Erik having to protest someone on iRacing for the very first time and we discuss what on earth drives someone to pay money to come onto a service like iRacing or any other game just to ruin it for everyone else and only to be eventually banned from the service without a refund.

Next, we move on and talk about the IndyCar race at Toronto on Peacock only and discuss does Romain Grosjean have the yips? Does Andretti clear house? What do we think of Colton Herta's performances so far this season?

Finally, we close out by talking briefly about the NASCAR race on Monday at New Hampshire and talk about Erik's upcoming trip to Iowa Speedway for the IndyCar race. IndyCar seems to have the most success at tracks where they have a festival-type atmosphere or a big weekend of racing (Long Beach, Indy Double).

Changes in F1, IMS Museum, IndyCar on Peacock, NASCAR in ATL

Erik and D.J. are back with a lot to talk about this week! Formula 1 has a familiar face returning to the grid after a driver was unceremoniously fired after ten races. We talk about McLaren's significant improvement, Alex Albon overachieving at Williams, and why does Checo keep having bad qualification runs? Is he being sabotaged by his crew? Put on your tin foil hats!

Next, we talk about IndyCar going Peacock only once again for the Toronto race and if that's really even a good idea. NASCAR at Chicago had a "great" showing on Peacock, but it would be absolutely abysmal if we only had 160,000 people watching an IndyCar race.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum had a major announcement this week involving a major renovation. Both of us have been to the museum multiple times over the years and share our thoughts on how magical of a place it is.

Finally, we talk about the rain-shortened Atlanta race and how great the Xfinity race was this weekend.

Chicago Street Race Recap, Track Limits, Mid-Ohio

We broke the 3000 all-time podcast listens threshold last week. Thank you again for all your support of F-R Racing and F-R Racing's Garage Talk. When we decided to release a podcast casually talking about auto racing and our iRacing experiences we had zero expectations that anyone would listen.

This week we kick off the show by talking about the drama at the Red Bull Ring and how there was a significant issue with drivers and track limits. Is it the driver's fault or does part of the course need to be changed?

Over in IndyCar, Alex Palou is turning the season into a one-man show like Max Verstappen has in Formula One. Rookie Benjamin Pedersen upset numerous drivers even the most happy-go-lucky driver in the series, David Malukas.

Finally, we spend most of the episode talking about the Chicago Street Race in NASCAR. Mother Nature did not want to cooperate at all, but we still got most of the racing in over the weekend. The biggest surprise of all was Shane Van Gisbergen, Supercars Champion from Australia making a name for himself by winning the Cup Series race in his NASCAR debut. We break down how big of a deal that actually was and the challenges SVG went through to adapt to NASCAR versus Australian Supercars.

Oh, and congratulations to Ty Ginter, the winner of our Ricky Stenhouse Jr giveaway!

Erik and D.J. are back with another all-new episode of Garage Talk! In this week's episode, we kick off the discussion about our Wednesday Night Dash league at iRacing Rudskogen Motorsenter. The GT3 cars have been a challenge for our inexperienced driving and we agree that we can't wait for this season to end. We get into the discussion of the changes to the ARCA Menards series car in iRacing and how that will impact the racing style.

Next, we talk about Le Mans and the confusion with the fact it actually is on Hulu. Then we talk about the coverage and how both the GTE and Garage 56 cars didn't get a lot of coverage and how the hypercars received most of the action on TV except for a handful of exceptions.

Finally, we discuss Anthony Alfredo's scary crash from a stuck throttle during practice at Sonoma and are glad that he walked away ok. We've interacted with Anthony quite a few times on social media and D.J. met him at Phoenix Raceway back in the spring. He's a great guy and a great ambassador for the sport. We close out the show talking about the cup race and the upcoming switch to the NBC schedule featuring the logistical nightmare that will be the Chicago Street Race.

Erik and D.J. are back with a new episode. There were some interesting moments with NASCAR at Gateway and F1 in Barcelona (like a double podium for Mercedes), but probably the most interesting part of the weekend was racing in Detroit. Both IMSA and IndyCar returned to the streets of Detroit and the results were very mixed. One thing was obvious the course was strategically placed so you could see the big GM logo on the Renaissance Center. We spend the second half of the show talking about iRacing's new update including the heavily anticipated release of the Cadillac V-Series.R GTP, Ligier JS P320, and Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) replacing the older Porsche 911 GT3.

Indy 500 Recap, Rain in Charlotte, iRacing GT3 Struggles

Taka is back from Japan and joins Erik and D.J. for an all-new episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk! We spend the bulk of the time this week breaking down the Garage Talk LIVE Raceday from over the weekend, first with a brief recap of the Monaco Grand Prix. We move on to the Indianapolis 500.

During that discussion, we talk about how the first half of the race was pretty uneventful outside of Graham Rahal's car not firing. After Sting Ray Robb crashed out, things got crazy with three red flags and a controversial ending where the race was flagged with two laps to go followed by a partial yellow flag lap and green and white flags at the same time. We discuss why that happened, how that possibly could have been avoided, and what IndyCar can do to make sure something like that doesn't happen again.

Finally, before we wrap the episode, we talk about our struggles during this season's Wednesday Night Dash GT3 league. We also discuss a little bit about the ending of the Behind Closed Doors IndyCar IR-18 season, and what's next for Wednesday Night Dash.

Indy 500 Qualifying Drama, RLL and Graham Rahal, North Wilkesboro, and WND at VIR

Indy 500 qualification was full of drama, successes, and failures. You either had a great weekend or an absolutely horrible weekend. There was no middle ground. One of the teams that had the worst weekends was Rahal Letterman Lanigan (RLL) which ultimately resulted in Graham Rahal missing the field....or did he? We break down the weekend in qualifying and how exciting it was.

We touch on NASCAR's return to North Wilkesboro with a largely boring race, drama involving Bubba Wallace's radio, and Kyle Larson dominating the weekend. We also briefly touch on this weekend's Formula 1 heading to Monaco and how likely it's going to be another snoozefest.

We close out the episode previewing our upcoming watch along live stream starting Sunday morning at 9 am eastern for the Monaco Grand Prix as we go directly into the Indy 500! Be sure to tune in for that. We do briefly touch on Wednesday Night Dash at VIRginia International Raceway and how the track swallowed everyone alive except for race winner, Ian Miller.

GMR Grand Prix, Ross Chastain, The Return to North Wilkesboro

We kick off this week's show by discussing Erik's trip to the GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The discussion spins off to talking about being caught in rain storms at the motor speedway, hiding under the metal bleachers, and how looking back on that doesn't look like the smartest place to hide from a thunderstorm. We get back on the discussion again on does IndyCar need more ovals on the schedule. If so, how can they do it safely and keep the racing entertaining?

We next move on and discuss Ross Chastain and the controversy with his aggressive driving. Is it good for the sport? Should the drivers be left to police themselves? We close out the segment talking about the upcoming Xfinity schedule and how it's heavy on road courses/street circuits.

Finally, we close out by talking about our iRacing leagues (Behind Closed Doors and Wednesday Night Dash). We talked about why D.J. missed the BCD IndyCar race at Indianapolis on Tuesday and some of the struggles we faced racing Laguna Seca on Wednesday Night Dash in the GT3 cars. D.J. hypes his upcoming blog post about his experience with updating to Windows 11 on his gaming PC and how it has impacted the performance of iRacing.

We start off this episode by introducing the show, then forgetting if we introduced the show after our impromptu camera positioning changes and tribute to Wayne's World.

Next, we talk about the weekend for NASCAR at Dover with the Truex brothers sweep, a rainout on Sunday, and Ross Chastain being Ross Chastain.

Erik and D.J. return this week and recap the season premiere of Wednesday Night Dash iRacing league, the challenges of switching from NASCAR to GT3 racing, and our race struggles. In addition, we talk about some strategies to get back to the basics of road racing down to the Toyota GR86 and the Mazda MX-5 cup.

In the second part of the show, we talk about the NASCAR weekend at Martinsville, the Craftsman Truck Series running on wet/rain tires, and a boring stage three. We move over to Long Beach to talk about the IndyCar race, the excitement of the road course, and the drama that unfolded from the race.

Finally, we announce a special event, F-R Racing's Significant Other Challenge! Erik and D.J. have conned their wives into getting into the simulator.

Garage Talk - iRacing GT3 League, NASCAR on Dirt and Performing in Vegas?

Erik and D.J. just finished the Wednesday Night Dash GT3 Sprint Series recruiting race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and there's a lot to talk about with this drastic shift in the WND schedule. D.J. talks about the event being his first league-type race (not counting the Daytona end-of-season race last year) and Erik's struggles with going from a primary oval car over to the GT3 class. We also discuss our car picks for the season and things to work on as the season progresses.

We move on and talk about the week in Motorsports with the Bristol dirt race, our take on if the dirt race is even worth it or not, and then move on to IndyCar and discuss the upcoming weekend at Long Beach.

The end of the show takes an odd turn after discussing the strange travel schedule that Formula 1 follows and how Las Vegas falls into the mix. That's when we both realize we have been pulled up on the stage of different Vegas shows to participate in the show. We share our experience first with D.J. seeing the late "The Amazing Jonathan" and Erik with Zumanity, a Cirque du Soleil show.

NASCAR Stage Racing, IndyCar in Texas, and Formula 1 Australian Chaos

On this week's episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk, we talk about the Richmond NASCAR Cup Series race and generally how boring it was for the most part. The conversation expands into whether Stage Racing is even necessary and is the races are too long for our short attention span society?

Next, we move on and talk about the IndyCar race in Texas and how the use of the upper racing line added excitement not seen at that track in many years. Did Jimmie Johnson help inspire IndyCar drivers to make oval racing better because of his driving in Texas and Iowa? Do we need to expand ovals on the schedule? We also briefly recap the first race in Erik's "Behind Closed Doors" Open Wheel (don't call it an IndyCar) iRacing league. The top three cars ran Michigan and finished 0.042 seconds apart.

Finally, we close out by talking about the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix. We hosted F-R Racing's Garage Talk LIVE Raceday and ran into numerous technical issues on the front end of the stream. We talk about those issues and how the early red flag bailed us out while D.J. fixed the stream audio setup. Once the stream was up and running, the race was relatively routine until the last few laps when all chaos broke out. We break down the chaos, multiple restarts, and Carlos Sainz's five-second penalty that dropped him to 12th place.

Bahrain F1, Indy St Pete, NASCAR Vegas, and Blinking in iRacing

A busy weekend in motorsports as Formula 1 returned with a snooze fest in Bahrain, IndyCar had an exciting event in St Petersburg, and William Byron came out on top in Las Vegas.  We talk about the importance of sponsors like HyVee to the IndyCar series despite not understanding why a regional chain store would spend so much time and effort to become nationally known.

Next, we move on and discuss the concept of "blinking" inside iRacing and what it is.  For those that don't know, blinking usually occurs when someone is on a lousy internet connection or their PC resources are maxed out during a race that their car "blinks".  iRacing is pretty vague on the rules regarding proper etiquette so it comes down to a case-by-case basis and leagues set their own rules.  That being said, what is a fair rule?  We discuss and don't come to a conclusion, but it is a good discussion.

A lot to unpack with the NASCAR season coming up.  We kick off the show by talking briefly about Kyle Busch's legal troubles after a vacation to Mexico and sharing our thoughts on the questionable decision-making to have the Clash at the Coliseum again.    

A discussion goes off-topic when the Daytona Xfinity race name gets brought up and as a result, we decide to walk through the list of race sponsors for the Cup, Xfinity, and Craftsman Truck Series for this year.  There are surprisingly still quite a few races without a race sponsor and one sponsor that comes up multiple times in the truck series.    Should F-R Racing sponsor one of those Truck Series races?

Finally, we break down the short show this week previewing the upcoming Wednesday Night Dash season starting on January 11th.  Since the IndyCar season had to be canceled due to iRacing licensing issues, we moved on to our NASCAR Next Gen Cup Series, featuring a fun schedule that includes a visit to the new race for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season at Chicago Street Circuit.  Finally, we announce that Eli Singh will take over as our new play-by-play announcer for Wednesday Night Dash.

It's going to be a fun-filled season so be sure to subscribe to Stadium Scene TV on YouTube so you don't miss all the action.

Emergency Podcast - iRacing IndyCar Licensing Controversy

This was supposed to be an end-of-the-year highlights show, but the surprise notice that iRacing lost its IndyCar Licensing as of January 1, 2023, needed to be discussed.  Erik and D.J. call the emergency podcast to discuss what it means for the future of the NTT IndyCar Series in iRacing, how the licensing impacts the schedule, future updating, and a shock update to the next season of Wednesday Night Dash.  

Finally, we bring back up the often discussed lack of marketing in the IndyCar series and what happens to the series in the future as it slips further and further behind NASCAR and now Formula 1 in the US market.    We also throwback to our past visits to the Indy 500 and how IndyCar can make a few small changes to get the fans re-engaged starting with the crown jewel of the series, the Indy 500.

IndyCar Marketing Change and iRacing Technical Issues

D.J. and Erik start the episode with some breaking news about the IndyCar Marketing lead on the way out!  It leads to an unplanned extended discussion about the marketing struggles with the IndyCar series and the declining popularity of the sport, despite the fact that the series runs one of the strongest fields in recent memory.  

Next, we move on and review our iRacing Class C IndyCar Series at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  D.J. discusses technical problems with his brakes and Erik discusses his Andretti curse.  The rest of the time D.J. reviews the mistakes he made despite his top 6 finish.

Interview with Author, Andy Amendola - Red Racer Books

Since the offseason for racing is in full swing, we're changing up our content a little bit in our first of hopefully many interviews, we sit down with author, Andy Amendola from Red Racer Books.  Andy has written two excellent children's books, "ABC's of Racing" and "All About Race Cars".  Both books are a great introduction to Formula 1 for both kids and adults.  It was actually one of Andy's ads on social media that introduced D.J. and his kids to his books and kicked off a conversation one day that turned into this interview.

We kick off the interview by talking about how Andy was first introduced to Formula 1 through the Netflix series, "Drive to Survive" and how the show's influence not only made him a fan of Formula 1 but a student and historian as well.  He talks about how after a trip to the US Grand Prix, he was inspired to start writing his book series due to the lack of any recent children's books on the topics of Formula 1.  His books not only target the competition aspect but the science and engineering.

Next, we dive into the process of research, writing the book, finding an illustrator, running a Kickstarter campaign, and ultimately printing and marketing the final product.  Andy gives us a hint at what to expect next from Red Racer Books so be sure to stick around for the end of the episode!

Pick up Andy's books "ABC's of Racing" and All About Race Cars" at RedRacerBooks.com or on Amazon.

Drama at Interlagos and testing iRacing Xfinity Series Cars

Erik and D.J. tested the iRacing Xfinity cars at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last weekend with the replay over at Twitch or YouTube.  First, they discuss the drama from last weekend's Formula 1 race at Interlagos.  There was drama between Kevin Magnussen & Daniel Ricciardo, Charles LeClerc and Lando Norris, Max and Lewis, and Max and Checo?!  Mercedes is the big winner with George Russell getting his first win.

In the second half of the episode, we pull up the film and talk about our first test of iRacing Xfinity Series cars and review the numerous mistakes we made during our 40-lap run from Erik hitting the wall a couple of times and D.J. having issues with tire wear despite iRacing's HUD claiming tires were still at 100%.  The full video of this episode is available on Twitch and YouTube.

2022 NASCAR season is over and Wednesday Night Dash Wrap Up

With the Wednesday Night Dash season officially over, we ran an end-of-year "party" for the drivers in the form of an iRacing GT3 race at Daytona International Speedway's Road Course.  Our old friend Chad Winstead stopped by to join us and we break down how that went and the interesting situation that iRacing pulled when the race winner went to celebrate by doing donuts.

Next, we quickly shout out to our partner Extreme Sim Racing and talk about the latest review on the F-R Racing blog, the Logitech Inverted Pedal Retrofit Kit.

We move on next to discuss the final week of the NASCAR season, the tragedy of Coy Gibbs' death after watching his son Ty win the Xfinity Championship only a few hours early.  An absolute tragedy of a story.  We move on and talk about Joey Logano's championship, and talk about past history of champions.

Ross Chastain's Wall Ride, F1 Snoozer in Mexico, and Wednesday Night Dash 2022 Season Wrap Up

Erik and D.J. had a bad finish to the 2022 Wednesday Night Dash season, but they're proud of what they accomplished and talk about the people they met and things they learned about running an iRacing league.  We recap our struggles at The Milwaukee Mile, talk about where we go next in January, and pitch recruiting more drivers for next season.

We of course have to move on to the biggest NASCAR story in a long time, Ty Gibbs wrecking his teammate and knocking him out of the Xfinity playoffs.  Just kidding.  I think we've all seen the clip about 100 times and heard the audio from the other drivers.  Unbelievable, but dangerous move.  We talk about how that will impact things for Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway.  We also talk about who we will likely see pull "the double" (Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day).  Some of the names are to be expected, but we throw out a couple that you might not think about as your first picks.

We briefly talk about the snooze fest that was the Mexican Grand Prix, Verstappen winning again, and what to watch as the season goes into the last two races.

Tim Cook, F1 Flag Wave and iRacing Iowa Speedway WND Results

Erik and D.J. are back talking about the Wednesday Night Dash event at iRacing Iowa Speedway.  Both drivers had an off night but due to some luck they walked away from Iowa with a 4th (Erik) and a 5th (D.J.) place finish!  It's the Halloween episode of the show and D.J. talks about why he's dressed up as Ryder from Paw Patrol (hint: his kids picked the costume) and Erik talks about playing the role of Colorado Avalanche Captain, Gabriel Landeskog.

Erik was away all weekend and missed the Formula 1 and NASCAR action, but we just had to discuss the now-infamous Tim Cook checkered flag wave at COTA.  The Apple CEO has been mocked relentlessly for his very serious slow wave of the checkered flag to finish the United States Grand Prix.  We definitely join in the ribbing and discuss.

We talk a little about the NASCAR race at Miami Homestead Speedway, before spending the rest of the time talking our iRacing League at Iowa Speedway and the issues/challenges we're facing as we develop our skills and abilities.

Talladega Racing, Formula 1 in Singapore, and Speculating on Las Vegas Grand Prix Ticket Prices

Erik and D.J. are back this week with a special announcement about next week's Wednesday Night Dash ARCA league race!  Since there was no Wednesday Night Dash race to break down, we skip right to talking about last week's NASCAR racing at Talladega from Truck, Xfinity, and Cup Series!  We talk about the Singapore Formula 1 race and the late/early start of this week's race in Japan.  Before ending the show we talk briefly about speculation of what the "general admission" tickets to the Las Vegas Grand Prix will cost and then close out by briefly talking completely off-topic about the end of the Chicago Cubs season.  If you watched the video you'd notice that by pure coincidence Erik and D.J. both wore Cubs gear.

Dual Podium Finish at Talladega on Wednesday Night Dash

Erik and D.J. (along with Taka) had a completely different plan coming into this week's episode, but that was thrown out the window because we spend the entire episode breaking down the amazing race during this week's Wednesday Night Dash ARCA iRacing League.  Spoiler Alert:  Erik finished P1 (by 0.003 seconds) and D.J. finished P3 (by 0.055 seconds).  It's the first dual podium finish for F-R Racing in the Wednesday Night Dash since the series moved to Stadium Scene TV. We open the show celebrating with some shots of Jeppson's Malört.

We look at the last few laps, and how the broadcast booth thought D.J. fell too far back to make a run to the end.  We look at some of the big crashes and the mistakes made by the team during the race.  It's a good look under the hood of iRacing and the iRacing replay system if you've never heard about it.  Video is available on Twitch and will be available on our YouTube channel at 8pm eastern on October 1st.

One Year Anniversary of Wednesday Night Dash

Can you believe we've been streaming for a year?  Our stream was originally inspired by the iRacing Dallara Dash series, but using different cars has gone from Erik and D.J. racing by themselves each week to a league with 15 drivers, broadcasted on Stadium Scene TV, and a prize purse.  For this episode, we start off with the race recap of the Wednesday Night Dash iRacing League ARCA series at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course and the bad night for Team F-R Racing.  

We briefly look ahead to next week's race at Talladega before moving on to discussing the week in NASCAR and Formula 1's schedule release.  We close out the episode by watching some of the highlights of our first Wednesday Night Dash from September 15, 2021.  We raced Dallara DW12 Indy Cars at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Erik had just received his racing wheel earlier that day.  We talk about how his calibration settings were so awful that he couldn't race.  It took a two-hour screen share session and tampering with iRacing settings under the hood to get it working.

We're back with episode 8 of F-R Racing's Garage Talk!  In this episode, Erik and D.J. talk about Ferrari's rough day in France, the on-track (Hamlin vs Chastain) and off-track (Hamlin/Kyle Busch DQs,  drama at Pocono, and Jimmie Johnson driving an IndyCar like a stock car at Iowa Speedway during our segment discussing real racing.  We get into a brief discussion about NASCAR's marketing, angering fans, Camping World dropping their sponsorship of the Truck Series after this year, and IndyCar's lousy TV ratings.  There's way too much to unpack so we'll have to dedicate an episode to talk about marketing in US auto racing and what we think they can do to change their bad luck.

We move into our iRacing discussion with a recap of Wednesday Night Dash and the strong performance from Colton Gardner, Kaden McAreavy clinching the season title, and the race for 2nd and 3rd place going into the final race at Phoenix.  We also hype the upcoming new season after Labor Day.

Hanging with WND Driver Kaden McAreavy Jr

Today we're joined by the Wednesday Night Dash series leader, Kaden McAreavy Jr.  We talk about Kaden's dominant run of five podiums in six races including two wins, and the strategy behind his preparation before the race.  

We jump in and discuss the upcoming season of F1, the influence of "Drive to Survive" then move onto NASCAR and talk about the weird on-track incident between Brad Keselowski and Austin Dillon and finally move onto IndyCar.  The discussion expands into how while the quality of the broadcast on Peacock was good, did NBC/IndyCar hurt their chances of growing the sport?  Is streaming races exclusively on a paid service really the right move right now?

We close out the show discussing last week's Wednesday Night Dash at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park and the challenges of racing on the famous short track.  The challenges the drivers ran into led us to change next week's race from dirt to pavement at Bristol and we talk about the thought process behind that.

Next, we do a quick discussion of the NASCAR and IndyCar races last week at Road America and Mid Ohio before getting into the bulk of the discussion about the British Grand Prix and how the halo saved Zhou Guanyu's life.  The discussion expands into the recent history of the halo used in F1, the lives it has saved already, and the similar IndyCar aeroscreen.  We discuss the pros and cons of each and the issues they still face.  We have video examples we play on our YouTube broadcast (or watch the videos individually linked below).

Finally, we close the show by talking about next week's Wednesday Night Dash at Talladega.  July 13th at 10:15pm eastern time on StadiumScene.TV's YouTube and Twitch channels!  We'll see you there!

F-R Racing's One Year Anniversary Show

I know we promised to keep the episodes at 10-15 minutes, but we're celebrating the one-year anniversary of the formation of F-R Racing.  We start the show talking about that and taking a shot of Jeppson's Malört.  

Next, we discussed our travels last week to Rockingham, Darington, Daytona for Erik, and Long Beach for D.J.  We talk a little about the tracks and pitch the idea of bringing back to NASCAR Rockingham to use for the All-Star Race in future years.  

We move on and do a quick recap of NASCAR at Nashville and a quick review of the schedule this weekend.  

Finally, we talk Wednesday Night Dash at Darlington earlier this week.  A tough track as most people familiar with the track know, yet WND driver Colton Gardner won his first race and handled the track like a pro.  Congrats to Colton!  No Wednesday Night Dash next week, but we'll have an episode next Friday so enjoy and we'll see you next Friday.

The Pilot, Indy 500 Review, and iRacing Wednesday Night Dash Update

Welcome to the pilot episode of F-R Racing's Garage Talk!  F-R Racing co-founders D.J. Fluck and Erik Richardson give you a brief recap of the world of racing (typically F1, NASCAR, and IndyCar) followed by an iRacing update with our racing series Wednesday Night Dash.

In today's episode, we introduce F-R Racing and the show along with discussing Erik's recent trip to the Indy 500, which is the largest sporting event held since the start of the pandemic.  The estimated attendance was around 350,000 and Erik gives his perspective of being back in the stands.

In the second half of the show we discuss iRacing and specifically our series Wednesday Night Dash.  For round one of the season, we had some controversy caused by what appears to be a glitch in iRacing preventing the wave around of a lapped car during our competition caution.  Erik pulls up the replay on the video and talks through the issue.
