Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

The finale to Just 2 Idiot Cup’s Season 3 brings us to Round 18 at Le Mans. Etmidust claimed pole with a time of 3:50.770. The race began in the early morning hours. All drivers remained clean after the green flag drop for a solid amount of time, until Brando and Sector came together at the Mulsanne corner. Etmidust’s pace was no match for fellow racers and found himself ahead by a large margin within the first quarter of the race. Due to the complexity of the track and length of the race, some racers found themselves with an early retirement due to damage and race fatigue.

With one lap to go, Etmidust suffered a severe hardware failure which knocked him out of first place, shortly after setting the fastest lap of the race, with a time of 3:51.356. This dropped Etmidust down to fourth place after serving his tow. Regardless of the hardware failure or not, Void would have managed to clinch the Season 3 victory, which he did the following lap finishing in first place. Congratulations to Void for an amazing performance over the course of the season. Erco managed a second place finish, with CaptainCK claiming the final spot on the podium.

For our final oval of Season 3, J2ICS races at Charlotte Oval. The race was plagued with a multitude of caution laps, but ended up green for the last quarter of racing. A solid number of racers started the race, but many did not make it to the final lap. NBRacing took home the win, after leading the pack for the entire night.


Round 16: Phoenix

The first race of the day began with Void on pole-position. All drivers remained clean through the first turn, but a multitude of incidents followed afterwards. Drivers found continual issues with the horseshoe turn, as well as the final turn leading to the oval portion of the track. This included incidents between Rocky and Erco, Sector and Dan, as well as AJensen and BeastGP. NBRacing brought home the win, with Etmidust and Nickalator finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively.

The second race began with CaptainCK on pole. The first turn of race two did not fare as well, with a collision between Slugnificent and Brando. Towards the end of the race positions seemed set in stone until a late lunge from Nickalator went sour, leading to contact with Berries and both drivers losing a handful of positions. CaptainCK was able to hold onto his starting position, finishing with the lead for his first Official J2iCS event. Void and NBRacing followed in 2nd and 3rd.

With his finishing positions in both races, Void has statistically clinched his first J2iCS Championship. Congratulations!

Race 1 saw a close battle between Void and NBRacing throughout the entirety of the race. NBRacing held on in the end to take home the win. Further back in the field, points leader (prior to drops) Etmidust got collected by Brando coming to the finish in race one. Tough break.

Race 2 saw Slugnificent obtain his first win in the J2iCS Championship. Using the reverse grid format to his advantage, Slugnificent got upfront and remained there for every lap of the race. His win was with over a 9-second margin. Void and NBRacing continued their battle until the end of the second race as well, and both came home with a podium.

Round 14: USA International

USA International marked J2ICS' first short track oval race of the season. Competition was fierce, but NBRacing10 swept both races at USA Speedway. Late race charges from Void, Water Cooler Dale, AJensen, and Nickalator were fought off with ease by NBRacing10, winning by a comfortable margin.

There were a handful of collisions, with a large wreck caused by a spin from Erco on a safety car restart. On race two, Brando clutched second place from Nickalator on the final corner of the final lap.

After leading every single lap in race one, Void took race two with much valor. Although Sector lead most of the laps in race two, a late race incident caused him to lose the lead ultimately giving Void the win.

Void takes the crown at Daytona.

Round 11: Lime Rock

Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

Etmidust took the win at a very foggy Lime Rock Park in race one during the Chatter Cup. His dominant performance left only 4 other cars on the lead lap by the finish. While race one was rather clean considering the weather conditions, race two had some major incidents in the opening laps. Being run at night, the second race was expected to have that trademark J2iCS action.

Unfortunately for Etmidust, he was involved in a wreck early which hurt his chances of a Chatter Cup sweep. Quintono, Rtupps, Sector, BeastGP, FuzzyTacos, Lt. Dan, and AJensen all were involved in early wrecks. While a number of other drivers involved recovered, it allowed Bonglife Motorsport to finish 1, 2 with DC5R taking home the win.

Round 10: Charlotte

While race one was rather clean, the action heated up under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway's Roval. Coming to the green, multiple cars stacked up causing carnage. This resulted in a number of drivers being taken out of contention quickly. NBRacing10 took home two more wins at America's Home for Racing, nearly lapping the whole field in the first race.

Round 9: Michigan

Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

The third oval race of the season at Michigan went off without a hitch. Nearly 20 J2iCS drivers took the green flag and nearly all of them finished the race. NBRacing10 took the win in dominant fashion leading all 128 laps, posting the fastest lap time during the race, and putting every other driver at least one lap down.

While the race was caution free, a number of drivers still had incidents during the race. Notably, oval regular, Water Cooler Dale spun into the inside wall on lap 50 due to ECU issues. Rocky also spun into the infield, but didn't sustain damage on lap 81. The switch the archived NASCAR Xfinity cars proved to be a success and they will be continued to be used for the remainder of the oval races this season. The oval series continues in a few weeks at USA International Speedway.


Round 8: Monza (Road)

Race one, while remaining fairly clean, had a number of incidents involving top contending drivers. Void and Brando got into it fairly early in the race. The post-race analysts are reviewing it as I write this. The race came to an end with Lt. Dan as the victor.

Race two saw a similar amount of carnage. Notably, Rivazza and Ankit, which resulted in Rivazza receiving a black flag from Race Control. Void took the win in race two for a ARC Send It! sweep. Other notables, Erco finished fourth in both races and RTupps failed to enter the lobby for the race.

Round 7: Silverstone

The beastGP was a surprisingly clean sprint race for the J2iCS compared to other races this season. While there were multiple incidents in both races, the race as a whole was rather clean. The first race was dominated by Void, leading every lap and finishing with a 6 second lead over Etmidust finishing in 2nd.

Race two, while a generally clean race saw more incidents than the first. Multiple drivers got into on track skirmishes throughout the event. Guantanamoe_Bae was victorious by the end, leading every single lap. Starting in 11th position, he dominated the field with over a 17 second lead at the finish.

Round 6: Spa

Quintono takes the victory at Spa during the 6th race of the J2iCS season. The #23's teammate, Etmidust finished in 2nd. The overnight hours took a toll on many drivers and even forced the first full-course yellow of the season.

Multiple drivers experienced mechanical issues and were provisioned back into the race due to a technical error during inspection. Due to confusion, Full-course yellow procedures have been updated for future races. Lt. Dan and Void ran strong all evening and both wrecked in the same incident in the overnight portion of the race.

Round 5: Daytona (Oval)

We're back to ovals! Our fifth race brings our second oval of the season, Daytona. The nature of the oval track brought out spectacular crashes, with a large chunk of the field being destroyed in one fell swoop. Etimidust took victory in his BMW, with DC5R coming in second, and AJensen coming in third

Round 4: Okayama

The fourth race of the J2iCS season saw a lot of, you guessed it; chaos. While many drivers had much better races than normal, some had to avoid incident after incident while progressing through the race, such as a large pile up at the start of race two.

NBRacing10 took the win in race one after dueling Void and Lt. Dan for the victory. Water Cooler Dale, the lone Ford on the track, had a celebration of his own after finishing a season high of 18th in both races.

Round 3: Laguna Seca

After a hectic race at Monza, J2iCS is back to the track at Laguna Seca for it's third race of the season! Although the race starts were hectic in themselves, nearly all drivers found themselves battling for position throughout the race.

Void ended with a victory in race one, with Lt. Dan and NBRacing10 finishing in second and third respectively. Brando fought to the last lap and took the victory in race two, with NBRacing10 finishing in a close second, with Nickalator coming in third.

Round 2: Monza (Oval)

Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

Due to weather delays, the second J2iCS race of the season was ran under the few lights installed at Monza Oval. While the GTE cars all have headlights, visibility was a clear issue throughout the evening. A bigger issue--wrecks. Of the scheduled distance, J2iCS only ran 58 laps.

Barely half of those laps were green. While green flag runs were short, the racing was competitive. Multiple passes for the lead and close pack racing drew new fans into the Monza stands. By the end of the race, many had seen their fair share of adversity. Water Cooler Dale incurred serious damage from a wreck and lost all of his fuel. It took the team seven green flag laps to realize the problem when the car would not restart. Etmidust also struggled with mechanical failures on his car.

Round 1: Sebring

Void takes the victory at Sebring Raceway after a hard fought two hours against both new and veteran J2iCS drivers. Many seemed like they hadn't missed a beat since returning from the off season.

Lt. Dan and Void were at the front for just about the whole time, while rookie driver's followed suit. Midway through the race, BeastGP took a tumble down the front straight while Dewey Ryder decided to park his Backmarker Motorsports Ford after a handful of laps.
