It was only in September 2011 that I won my first Oval race at R2P (or anywhere) in Stock Cars (and only my 2nd ever win - the first being a Road Course at Montreal back in 2009).
And just last week, 10 months later, I've chalked up another 8 victories - making 10 in total (all ARCA Sim Racing).
But the reason for the Blog and the Milestone in question is quite a limited club I would believe:-
I've now won on a Road Course; Short tracks (1 mile or less); normal ovals (over 1 mile up to 2 miles); a Tri oval (Pocono); and last week a Superspeedway (Talladega).
What's so special about that, you may ask?
Well, each has to be approached in very differing ways, driven differently, car set up differently. I haven't checked it out, but I would imagine the number of drivers who have achieved this in R2P history would be very limited indeed.
Yet another milestone after hitting the 'sweet-spot' in ARCA since late 2011. I really still can't believe it myself!!!

Well, I just had to 'print screen' this following my victory in the Rockingham "Hour" event last weekend:-
After finishing 2nd in the ARCA Rockingham Ultimate Challenge event (11 hours later), my ranking dropped slightly but I still kept the top spot.
"Hang on, Andy Graydon currently number 1 Stock Car driver at R2P (rolling rank)? Don't make me laugh!!!!!"
I know, quite surreal feeling - LOL.

Andy just added to his stats today by winning on a short track, and he lapped the entire field by more than a couple of laps while he was at it. He's well on his way to grabbing another stock car drivers championship.

Nice job Andy! That's a "Mario Andretti-Like" achievement in Sim racing :D
