This past weekend the JConcepts Team traveled to S&B Raceway in Piedmont, SC for the 2020 Wicked Weekend. The Wicked Weekend typically takes place inside an arena in Gainesville, GA. However, with covid restrictions they were forced to move the event, making this the first outdoor race in Racetime Entertainment history! Thursday was the first full day at the track and it was a dedicated practice day. Initially, there were two separate practice sessions that drivers had to choose from. With the weather that rolled in Wednesday night, practice didn’t start until around 11am Thursday morning. The Racetime crew decided to make practice a free for all, with more impending weather to hit Thursday evening. The team spent Thursday getting to know the track. They were learning the layout, but more importantly trying to decide on what tires they would need. The track was a living creature all weekend constantly changing as weather rolled in and out.
For tires, the team started with Green Reflexes and Triple Dees but ended up moving into bar tires during practice. By the end of the Thursday practice session they were on A2 Ellipses. It rained over night so they were predicting to be back on green reflexes at the beginning of the day Thursday and move to harder indoor style tires as traction came up on the track throughout qualifying. The track was constantly changing from wet and muddy to dry and dusty.
