iRacing>>>real racing why? It doesn't take 10 laps to clean up wrecks in iRacing. It doesn't take 30 minutes to get all the sprint cars pushed off in iRacing, only to have somebody tip their car over 2 laps into the green flag, spending 20 minutes getting that cleaned up & another 20 to get them all pushed off again.
