24 Oct 2011 — Kevin Ransom started on the pole and led every lap on the way to a commanding victory in the World of Outlaws in the opening round of the Season #2: IGN Auto Racing Career Series.

Ransom drove all of 17 laps total leading Newton Prado after initially being targeted by him on the first lap. Ransom controlled the race lead every lap from start to victory.

After losing the spot on lap 18, Pringle passed Linton for the second time and into fifth place on his final lap.

After the pace I had in practice I'm surprised and delighted with 4th! Although the weight penalties helped me! Didn't see the lights at the start so got a bad get away, at turn 3 Matthew spun and I was able to slip past him and Cory. I then set after Terry, I couldn't get close to him but then he ran wide a couple of laps later and I managed to get past. The top 3 were well out of reach so the aim then was to maintain 4th. Tricky track! You really have to nurse these cars through the corners!

Congrats to Kevin, Newton and Jan. Great pace and you worked the track well.

I agree with Matthew M - tricky and only later in the race did I really start to realise how to work the corners so that I didn't continue to burn up the tires.

Had just a bit of bad luck on lap one with a slight tap from the rear that put me back a bit. Struggled to get past Hugo and from there it was more or less keeping pace with Cory and Terry, but from about 15-20 seconds back (sometimes less). The end of the race saw me catching the two of them due to some 'offs' (I'm guessing, I didn't magically pull off some amazing pace) which led to a great lap with Terry to finish the race, .4s behind him. Know where I didn't push hard enough to keep him behind me when I got past when he went wide, will try not to make THAT mistake again!

Doug, great choice for the opening race of the second series, thanks!

"(Quoted from the Career Forums): That was a interesting race at Heartland. Having weight penalties did make a difference. And the difference I saw was 3 groups of cars racing. My thoughts of this Weight Penalty is that I really enjoyed this race at Heartland. For the 1st time I had to continually race and keep up with the pace in the group of cars I was in. Most of the races I do is cruse around the track by myself. "

Congrats Kevin and the Podium Finishers

That was the most amazing race we ever had here at IGN Racing. To bad for Neil who had car issues and left the game. We have a great bunch of drivers here with highest etiquette for others and the skills making the race flow flawlessly. Great Race! See you all at 'Volcano Lava Climb'

Fun race even though I was way off my normal pace, never have liked the Porker but have to admit it was far more planted in corners with the xtra 100k inboard but it was a dog on top speed. The battle with Terry and company all race made it worth while though. Thought I had 5th secured at the end then I looped it big time allowing Terry and Matthew past again so 7th it was.

Hopefully I can get a handle on the Porker or the Volvo.. :)

Grats All
