INDIANAPOLIS – The United States Auto Club and iRacing have announced the formation of the iRacing USAC World Championship presented by FloRacing.
The nine-race eSports tour kicks off on Wednesday, Sept. 11, seeing the best of iRacing’s non-winged sprint car drivers visiting some of America’s most iconic dirt ovals.
This year’s iRacing USAC World Championship schedule starts and finishes with iRacing’s newest addition, Fairbury Speedway.
“We’re looking forward to adding the iRacing USAC World Championship presented by FLORacing to our slate of championship eSports competition,” said iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations president Tony Gardner. “Wingless sprint cars produce some of the most exciting racing action anywhere in America, and we can’t wait to see how the world’s top iRacers will handle them with $10,000 on the line.”
