The World of Outlaws and iRacing.com will be adding a dirt track according to the results of an online vote. Between six popular venues, fans chose to have Kokomo Speedway added to the online racing service.
Since iRacing has laser scanned this track already, the expected release date isn’t far away, in 2018.
“We are very appreciative of our fans voting us to be the next dirt track added to iRacing,” said Kokomo Speedway president Reece O’Connor. “Being available to race in iRacing will give existing fans a new way to experience our track as well as introduce legions of new fans to Kokomo. Personally I can’t wait to race Kokomo online!”
The remaining five tracks, Fairbury American Legion Speedway, Lernerville Speedway, Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, Weedsport Speedway and Cedar Lake Speedway, will also be added to iRacing’s database at some point in the future.
“It was fun to get dirt track fans involved in the decision process – it’s the first time we have done anything like this and based on everything we heard it was very well received,” said Steve Myers, executive vice-president and executive producer, iRacing.com. “Ultimately we will build all six tracks but it is great to have the input from the community as to what they want next.”
iRacing implemented online dirt oval racing earlier in 2017. Presently, it offers five dirt tracks: Eldora, Williams Grove, Volusia, Lanier and USA Speedway. Knoxville is scheduled for release in December. Limaland Motorsports Park, The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway and one other track are also in production, planned for release in early 2018. iRacing members can race a variety of dirt cars on these tracks including dirt street stocks, World of Outlaw Sprint cars and Late Models, USAC sprint cars and NASCAR Camping World Trucks.
