iRacing – Dirt Racing Now Available!


It’s finally here! Dirt Racing has been released for iRacing!

The release adds 3 new pieces of content: the Dirt Legends Car, the Dirt Street Stock, and a Dirt configuration of USA International Speedway.

The initial release of dirt racing brings 5 cars (Legends Car, Street Stock, Late Model, Sprint Car, and a Dirt version of the NASCAR Camping World Truck), with the Sprint Car and Late Model featuring multiple configurations:

Late Model:

  • Limited – 350 Cubic Inch V8, 400 Horsepower
  • Pro – 358 Cubic Inch V8, 700 Horsepower
  • Super – 438 Cubic Inch V8, 850 Horsepower

Sprint Car:

  • 305 Sprint – 305 Cubic Inch V8, 458 Horsepower
  • 360 Sprint – 360 Cubic Inch V8, 720 Horsepower
  • 410 Sprint – 410 Cubic Inch V8, 892 Horsepower

At 892 horsepower, the 410 Sprint is the most powerful cars in the iRacing service, but at 1,400 pounds, it’s also one of the lightest! That means the car has the highest power-to-weight ratio on the entire service! This car is mind blowing to drive, and is an insane experience racing wheel to wheel with other racers.

Note that the Sprint Cars and Late Models only count as one car each. You don’t have to buy three separate versions of each car. Also, if you own the NASCAR Camping World truck, then you automatically have the dirt version as well.

Volusia, Eldora, and Williams Grove round out the dirt track roster. I’ve tested out the different tracks and cars, and they are a blast! They do require some practice, and are definitely tougher than they look! I’m planning on a tips and tricks video in the near future, so stay tuned to the Sim Racing Paddock Youtube Channel for more!
