The iRacing USAC World Championship will determine the best of the best in wingless sprint car competition.
Nine races are all that stand between 35 talented iRacers and their share of $10,000 as the season begins tonight (Wednesday). The championships are comprised of some of the top Dirt Oval racers on the service. In the mix of a number of popular tracks is the newly released Fairbury American Legion Speedway (aka “America’s Dirt Track”), which will host season opener and finale.
Many of the names competing for the USAC crown should be familiar to iRacing fans. Alex Bergeron and Austen Semmelmann will be running their third iRacing World Championships of the season. Swindell SpeedLab Esports, with drivers James Edens, Adam Elby, Blake Cannon, and brothers Chase and Cole Cabre, will also line up. The international flair of iRacing’s Dirt Oval series carries over into USAC as well, with Bergeron and Alex Smolders representing Canada and Lewis Hewett, Joel Berkley, and Bob King all flying the Australian colors.
The series kicks off on tonight with Fairbury’s first-ever iRacing World Championship event with the popular oval released as part of last week’s 2019 Season four build. “America’s Dirt Track” bookends a season that will see the top three finishers in series points take home $6,000, $3,000, and $1,000, respectively for first through third place.
