Since iRacing.com opened its virtual doors for business in 2008, the online racing service’s meticulously modeled race cars and tracks have proven to be valuable tools for professional race drivers, be they established stars like NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Brad Keselowski, emerging talent like Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year Landon Cassill or Conor Daly, who drove for AJ Foyt Racing in this year’s Indianapolis 500. But drivers aren’t the only iRacers using the world’s leading motorsports simulation service as a gateway to the professional arena. Much like drivers who move-up the racing “ladder” from online to real racing, artists Guy Driggers, JD Laird, Kevin King and others are plying their craft in professional circles after serving their apprenticeships designing paint schemes for virtual cars on the iRacing service.

It took eight races and a lucky break, but Ray Alfalla is finally back in the NASCAR iRacing.com Series World Championship victory lane. Alfalla survived the early carnage and took advantage of a huge mistake by Nick Ottinger with 11 laps to go en route to his win at Pocono Raceway. It looked as if Ottinger had sealed-up the win when he passed Alfalla with 20 laps remaining, but Alfalla tried his best to keep the pressure on. With 11 laps to go, Ottinger pushed it a little too hard and slid into the wall on the exit of Turn Three, allowing Alfalla to retake the lead. Ottinger quickly tried to close back in, but a yellow flag would trap him in second position and set up a three lap [...]

iRacers beware: there’s about to be a new alien on the block. No, he’s not from Scandinavia. He’s from . . . Texas; Corpus Cristi to be precise. But he plans on moving to Roswell, New Mexico in the future. And unless you’ve been living in a cave for all or some of the past 66 years, you’ll know that since a UFO crashed near Roswell in 1947, the desert town has been long been ground zero for speculation about extra-terrestrials. Some would say Joey Brown has already proven his alien status in sim-racing circles, witness the fact that he finished ninth in the 2012 NASCAR iRacing.com Pro Series or that he scored his first NASCAR iRacing.com Series World Championship victory at Charlotte in just his seventh start at the [...]

Week Five brought the NASCAR iRacing.com Class A Series (fixed setup) to the first state in the Union and Dover International Speedway. With its unique combination of concrete surface and steep banking, it’s no wonder the track has earned the nickname “The Monster Mile.” Qualifying: For the second week in a row, Pro-licensed drivers topped the qualifying charts in the NiCAS (fixed setup). NiSWC competitor Brian Schoenburg (California) wheeled his Gen6 car to a 22.796 second lap around the concrete mile. New Pro driver Brian Day (Mid-South) was second best with a 22.808s lap, and NiSWC driver Danny Hansen was third at 22.809s. Kevin King (California) was fourth best at 22.820s and Matt Bussa (Illinois) was fifth at 22.833s. High SOF Race: The top SOF race of the week happened [...]

Remember as a kid the first time you sat in your parents’ car? You grabbed the steering wheel tight, raised your arm out the window and imagined taking the checkered flag at Daytona or Indy. Did you ever think that even if you were talented enough to pursue a career that you would need financial backing from your family or a sponsor? Enter Ray Alfalla, a native of Matanzas, Cuba who came to the United States in 1995 when he was six years old. Quickly, he developed the aspiration to follow in the footsteps of his boyhood idol: NASCAR’s Rusty Wallace. Since Ray lived in Miami, he would frequent Homestead-Miami Speedway as a spectator to watch NASCAR races, but obviously Ray had dreams of his own – being behind the [...]

The car was found to be in violation of Sections 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR that equipment used in a race does not conform to the rules), 20-12.8.1B, (minimum front car height) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the series’ regulations

NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski is facing sanctions after his car failed post-race inspections following Sunday’s race at Dover. The Penske driver finished in fifth position in the race, but his #2 car measured too low in post-race inspections and he could be penalised when NASCAR officials review the case tomorrow.

Denny Hamlin claimed a second straight NASCAR Sprint Cup pole position as he led qualifying for Sunday’s round at Dover International Speedway. Despite feeling the one-mile oval is one of his weakest venues, Hamlin was able to produce a 22.788-second to repeat the pole he secured in the last Cup event there last September. Joe Gibbs Racing secured three of the top four positions, as Hamlin’s team-mates Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth put their Toyotas on row two.
