BIO:
Gerry is a true sim enthusiast, both on the ground (N.A.S.S. – utilizing NASCAR Racing 2003 Season) and in the air (using FS2004). Gerry has been with N.A.S.S. since the days of off-line racing way back in 1996/1997 and joined the on-line racing world in 1999. For the 2004 season Gerry is proudly sporting the colors of AirCanadian – a Virtual Airline that he has been with since 2000. AirCanadian actually surprised Gerry last year with a special painted Boeing 757 in recognition of and celebrating the sponsorship of his #8 Chevy. Take a moment to checkout pictures of the a/c 757 at his Sim-Flight Image web site.

Gerry is a true fan of NASCAR and loves racing on-line; hoping to be doing this well into his retirement years. Amongst Gerry’s future plans is his wish to someday to see a race live, especially at Daytona or Bristol, which just so happen to be his two favorite tracks.

BIO:
Barrett Canning says he grew up a Richard Petty fan and always enjoys watching the Petty Enterprises cars today. Canning goes on to clarify, "Although I owe my dedication to Ricky Craven as he is from my home state of Maine. I used to watch him race on Sat. nights at the local short track in Unity Maine. I never dreamed I was watching a future Nextel Cup driver. One of my favorite places to visit is Craven Motorsports located in my home town of Belfast Maine Run by Ricky's sister. My condolences to the family as I have heard that it was lost due to fire in '03."

Barrett's been racing the Papyrus NASCAR family of Sims since they were first released in 1996. He competed on and off in the N.A.S.S. Offline series from '97 to '99. "Due to moving, school and other obligations", Canning explains, "I was never able to complete a full season. 2002-2003 was my rookie year in the N.A.S.S. Online Series in the THUNDER Division. My first win came at Darlington, a track I've always loved." As of the start of the 2007 season Canning has completed 3 & ˝ seasons in The Nass thunder division. Over his thunder career Canning had 98 starts, 9 wins and 2 Championships (2004 & 2006). Canning is tied for 3rd all time in top 5 finishes in the thunder division with 57, ranks 5th all time with 81 Thunder top 10's and third in thunder history with 1,525 laps led. After a great thunder career Canning looks ahead to a very challenging full time debut in Lightning in 2007. Canning races a Thomas Super Wheel with a proudly displayed "32" sticker on the left dash board just behind the wheel in honor of Ricky Craven and his Nascar Career.

Adding some personal information, Canning offers, "I currently reside in Billings, Montana where I manage a vending company that services over 800 machines located in bars, taverns, stores, restaurants etc. Much of Barrett's time is spent on the sales, repair and keeping up to date on the latest (arcade) style video games. Yes this does include a yearly business trip to Las Vegas to spend 3 days playing video games! Canning plans to get Married in May of 2008, and states "I should be able to make the race the following Tuesday. The honeymoon, we may have a problem there….honey can I bring my wheel?"

TEAM MATE(s):
 
BIO:
Born and raised in Flemington NJ, Kevin grew up only a couple of miles from the storied Flemington Speedway. His father ran many of the dirt tracks in the north east and called Flemington Speedway his home. Kevin’s older brother Joe Jr. followed in his footsteps as he too competed on the dirt and asphalt tracks of the tri-state region (NJ, NY, PA) through the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The Inglin name can still be found on the local race tracks as Kevin’s twin brother Keith, his son Korey, and nephew Kyle are all competing locally.

Kevin started his sim-racing with N.A.S.S. offline in 1998. In 2000 Kevin made the leap to online racing and has had modest success over the years. Kevin used to make his living painting signs and lettered quite a few race cars over the years. He’s since retired from the sign-business and leverages his art and writing skills for the Cyber-Zine. When he’s not sim-racing he focuses on helping his wife raise the two boys and works for Bristol-Myers Squibb as a computer engineer in the web technology area.

In 2004 Kevin brought the AMSOIL Company on board for sponsorship and chronicles his weekly racing activities on the Inglin Racing web site.

BIO:
What more can be said about Tim Wortman? Tim is the 'Father' of N.A.S.S., creating this series from the ground up into what it is today. From the first 'Off-Line' races using the old Papyrus Indy 500 games to the initial foray into 'On-Line' racing on the Hawaii servers, Tim has been there to with his eye on the bottom line and the future.

When anyone looks around at what 'On-Line' racing is or has become, Tim Wortman should be one of the first names to come to mind.

BIO:
Making the long (cyber) haul from Blainville, Quebec (Canada), Francois quickly established himself as one of the driving forces in the 2002 N.A.S.S. ONLINE SERIES CHARGER Division.

Dean Moll 
BIO:
Growing up around the "dirt tracks" of Eastern Iowa, Dan knew that racing would be a part of his life forever; hoping to someday be a driver like his father and two older brothers. Ironically, it was an asphalt track in La Crosse, Wisconsin where he got his first behind the wheel experience.

Dan has been a faithful member of N.A.S.S. since joining the now defunct Off-Line league in '97. In '98, bored by the A.I., he accepted the invitation to join the On-Line series and has felt "at home" ever since.

While not a driver known to dominate events, the 2002 season was a turning point as Bailey finally broke his five year 160 race winless streak by grabbing the checkered flag at the N.A.S.S. CHARGER Division UAW-GM Quality 200 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte.

In 2003 Dan accepted the invitation to step up to the highly competetive N.A.S.S. LIGHTNING Division - a move that he has enjoyed immensely. Since that first LIGHTNING DIVISION start, on February 18th, 2003, Bailey has shown his committment to the Series and the Division by not missing a single start. That's right, 4 complete seasons (144 consectutive starts since his promotion to the Division) has produced 21 top-5s, 75 top-10s and 3 Pole Awards as well as winning the 2005 LIGHTNING Division ShootOut). Additionally, Dan has made it into the LIGHTNING Division's top-10 "Chase for the Cup" all three season's that the scoring premise has been used in that division (2004, 2005 & 2006).

2006 included another major high-light as Bailey finally picked up his first LIGHTNING Division regular season (points paying) race win - the May 2nd "Aaron's 225" @ TALLADEGA SUPERSPEEDWAY! During the '06 season Bailey also enjoyed another high-light when he set the new track record at Texas Motor Speedway turning in a blistering qualifying lap of 27.823 seconds - 194.084 m.p.h.! "I've never been known as a strong qualifying", beamed Bailey after that Pole winning lap, "So, I'm going to enjoy that one for a while!"

Bailey continues to attack his LIGHTNING Division events the same way he has always attacked them, "I want to race as hard and as clean as I can while still having fun and simply enjoying the on-track action with my fellow racers."

"The level of competition in the LIGHTNING Division is absolutely amazing", continued Bailey, "I know that I'm not the type of driver who can compete with these guys for wins on a weekly basis, so I rely heavily on my consistency. Consistantly showing up for races and running as hard as I can a finishing every race as strong as I can."

In 2003 Dan also returned to the THUNDER Division to run the final 8 races of the season before joining Pat McGhie as a Co-Director of the Division in 2004.

2004 turned out to be a banner season for Bailey in the THUNDER Division. Collecting four wins
  1. The February 23rd "Goody's Headache Powder 120" @ NORTH CAROLINA SPEEDWAY (A.K.A., "Rockingham")
  2. The April 19th "Pepsi 140" @ LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY -- Winning from the 'Pole" and leading the most laps (61 of 94)
  3. The October 25th "Sam's Town 'He Dared To Rock' 150" @ MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK
  4. The "Season Ending" November 22nd "Ford 140" @ HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY -- Winning from the 'Pole' and leading the most laps (50 of 94)
, with four N.A.S.S. ONLINE SERIES Pole Awards,
  1. The April 19th "Pepsi 140" @ LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
  2. The May 3rd "Stater Bros. 150" @ CALIFORNIA SPEEDWAY
  3. The June 21st "Meijer 140" @ LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
  4. The "Season Ending" November 22nd "Ford 140" @ HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY
Bailey raced his way to 20 top-5 and 31 top-10 finishes through the 34 race season - ending up with the highest average finishing position of the entire Division roster (5.5) and tying Barrett Canning for the THUNDER Division Championship (the championship was evantually awarded to Canning as both drivers had four wins, but Canning had 22 top-5 finishes compared to Bailey's 20).

In 2005 Bailey enjoyed another successful season in the THUNDER Division, grabbing three wins
  1. The April 18th "O'Reilly 150" @ TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
  2. The May 30th "Carquest Auto Parts 210" @ LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY
  3. The August 15th "Zippo 80" @ WATKINS GLEN INTERNATIONAL -- Leading every single lap of the 32-lap event!
along with 19 top-5 and 30 top-10 finishes throughout the 35 race season.

The 2006 THUNDER Division season presented Bailey with a mixture of positives and negatives. Through the 35-race year, Bailey wracked up a couple wins
  1. The July 24th "Goody's 150" @ MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY
  2. The September 25th "Dover 120" @ DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
as well as 13 top-5 and 23 top-10 finishes. But he also suffered through an uncharacteristically high amount of 'off nights', including his first D.N.S. (Did Not Start) since returning to Full-Time THUNDER Division competition back in 2003, which relegated him to a disappointing fourth place finish in the Point Standings.

In addition to his committement to enjoying his Sim-Racing, Bailey is a dedicated competitor - Bailey is third in the all-time starts list in the N.A.S.S. THUNDER Division (167) and currently holds the N.A.S.S. THUNDER Division record for Consecutive Starts - 80 straight (from September 29th, 2003 until March 6th, 2006) . . . a streak which would have continued much longer if it weren't for his ISP failing him on Monday March 13th.

Bailey also led the all-time starts list for the N.A.S.S. CHARGER Division (95 starts with 1 win, 22 top-5s, 62 top-10s, and 2 Pole Awards) during that Division's existence.

In addition to his personal accomplishments, he was also over-joyed when "C&D MOTORSPORTS", the THUNDER Division Team comprised of himself and his Father Chuck, brought home the 2005 THUNDER Division TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP title! Proving that he is a 'team player' this is Bailey's third career N.A.S.S. TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP -- 1999 THUNDER Division TEAM CHAMION ("3rd Millennium Motorsports" with Norm Adkins) & 2003 LIGHTNING Division TEAM CHAMPION ("MINT Motorsports - Team MI" with Dean Moll).

While not enjoying his Sim-Racing addiction, Bailey spends every free moment he can with his two children (Zachary and Allison).

Bailey is also a huge supporter of local racing - on Friday nights he can be found behind the microphone as the Speedway announcer at FOX RIDGE SPEEDWAY in Arcadia, WI - the rest of the week he's either maintaining the FOX RIDGE SPEEDWAY web site (www.foxridgespeedway.com), writing racing articles for the local newspaper (Winona Daily News - www.winonadailynews.com, All The Dirt Racing news - www.allthedirt.com, or a handful of other racing web sites and/or monthly glossy racing magazines), or preparing for his racing radio show on KG 95.3 FM (www.winonaradio.com). It's safe to say that racing is in Bailey's blood . . . and it doesn't appear that it will be gone none to soon!
