CMS Wins at Daytona 24 in LMP2

Race Report by David Anderson January 24, 2021 - The CMS Pro Team of Jordan Johnson, Chris Chmelir, and Chris Taylor were joined by Matthew Overton, Doug Hintze, and Andrew Cheslock to round out a six-man roster that took the win at the 24 Hours of Daytona this past weekend on iRacing. The team qualified fifth in the 30th of 47 total race splits. No doubt, the largest sim racing event in history. The team had a great start fighting up to 2nd place in the opening laps but as night fell their luck would change. After a couple of close calls with slower traffic, a spin, and some miscommunication in the pits, the team found themselves back in 6th place but had high hopes of catching back up.

Race Report by Matthew Overton Photo by Jerry Chen Broadcast by Ross Smith January 21, 2021 - The thunder was heard loud and clear last night at Daytona as the Hypercars and GTEs of the VMSC took to the track for the first of twelve rounds of action. LMH PRO Weather conditions were almost perfect and provided a stunning backdrop for the landmark victory of Ferrari FXX driver George Angelidis, who scored his maiden win at CMS with a commanding performance in the LMH PRO class. Lacking only the fastest lap and leadership of 5 race laps that fell to others while he was being serviced in the pits to complete a sweep of the race, it was nevertheless a long-held dream come true for the veteran CMS driver.
