I won $1,000 Saturday night...playing a game *UPDATE* - Page 10

post #91 of 157
So, when you pay to play iRacing... do you gotta pay to get into the NASCAR league, or the Volkswagen TDI or what? Or is it free to join anything

Lol, do they have any of these for guys like me who don't play racing games much? like pay $0.25 to get in and win like a dollar? Hell I could do that all night

My internet = fast when dialup was being phased out. I'd prefer to go to a lan-type event.

That was not.

I will admit I am jealous, you won money because you turned left better than everyone else . Kidding, awesome prize though +1 for representing OCN .

You have to pay for the car and track if its not part of the free content that comes with the membership but the public leagues are free to enter, as in no entry fee. This was a special event put on by a real NASCAR driver.

You should get one of these and win more dough! After the SSD and the Obutto, you'd still have ~$450. It'd be a good investment for future tournaments.

Man, serious respect for that!
Must have been nerving to see the laps after you once you found out you had the fastest lap.

Have you not thought about buying a sim machine with the money? or at least putting the money towards a sim machine, as I know the decent ones can cost a lot!
