Last weekend was one of the biggest weekends for auto racing, with the Monaco Grand Prix, Indianapolis 500, and Coca-Cola 600 running on the same weekend. The Indianapolis 500 was an exciting race, leading up to Juan Pablo Montoya gaining the victory in a remarkable drive from 30th place! Now, next weekend will provide iRacers the opportunity to run in the virtual Indy 500 on the iRacing.com service.
Four different time slots will be available for drivers looking to compete in the 6th running of the iRacing Indianapolis 500, with the green flag on the first race dropping May 29th:
- May 29th at 9:00 PM EDT (1:00 AM GMT May 30th)*
