If you have to pick a NASCAR driver you mirror in sim racing who would it be?
Don't laugh and since Drhaft said Mickey I would have to go with Mike Skinner. Gotten close to a win or a good run and made a dumb bonehead move. I need to practice more patience and save the equipment (tires). (Plus my wife and Skinners were childhood buds).

With offline practice and league racing about 8-12 hours a week. Not enough. Usually depends were we are running at and how many "honey do's" I have.

If you could meet anyone who would it be and why?
Have to be two people for me. First would have to be my dad's father. He died before I was born. I have been told by family members that I remind them of him. Seems like an interesting person.
