Texas Motor Speedway played host to Week Six of the NASCAR iRacing Class C Fixed Series and a hometown hero was able to make his way to victory lane during the week’s top Strength of Field event. 2,202 sim racers took the track for at least one race during the week, each looking for a trip to Texas’ victory lane, but only one could lay claim to victory. The 1.5-mile speedway provides some of the closest racing that iRacing has to offer, but this week it provided more of a challenge than usual. Since this series runs a fixed setup (everyone has the same setup), some drivers had concerns that the setup was too loose, which made the Silverado more difficult to drive compared to other big speedways on the [...]

Week Five of the NASCAR iRacing Class C Fixed heads to Dover International Speedway for some action at the 1-mile concrete coliseum. Over 2,000 sim racers took the green flag for at least one race during the week, but there would be only one who could claim they are king at Dover. NASCAR iRacing Pro Series competitor Brandon Buie (Atlantic) drove his No. 1 Silverado into victory lane during the week’s top Strength of Field event after race leader Brandon Wise (California) had struggles after leading the opening 31 laps. Marc Melcher (DE-AT-CH) finished in the second position after starting fifth, just 0.387 seconds behind race winner Buie. Chase Cabre (Florida) was a man of threes during the race. Cabre finished in the third position after starting third all while [...]

Cole C. Anderson may be a young man of few words (see below), but when it comes to iRacing his accomplishments speak for themselves. Apart from contributing more than 100,000 laps in competition to the 737M iRacing laps in the books, he has more than 600 wins to his credit, from IndyCars to Silverados, Corvettes and Advanced Legends, the latter of which saw him finish runner-up in the 2013 S1 standings. He’s also had success in Street Stocks, twice finishing in the top five and, speaking of success Anderson has achieved “real world” racing success in quarter midgets and Late Models at Elko Speedway, a 3/8 mile, high banked oval near his home in Northfield, MN, winning the Minnesota Quarter Midget Racing Association 2011 Heavy Honda championship and MQMRA 2012 [...]

The fourth week of iRacing.com IndyCar Road Fixed Series action took place at the Sebring International Raceway, a runway converted to a race course that was the first track to host the United States Grand Prix in 1959. The circuit used by the Dallara Indy Car teams this week was the Modified Circuit which brings the course length to just under two miles at a 1.97 mile length consisting of nine turns. This week only 94 sim-racers geared-up to take victory at the acclaimed track. The iRacing.com IndyCar Road Fixed Series saw strength of field race of 2026 with ten drivers taking a shot at the win.

The fourth week of the iRacing.com IndyCar Oval Series headed to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home of IndyCar racing. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has hosted racing events for almost every major racing series; this includes NASCAR, Grand-Am, Formula 1, MotoGP and of course IZOD IndyCar racing.

Charlotte NASCAR Sprint Cup runner-up Kasey Kahne believes the yellow should have come out sooner when a television camera cable fell onto the track in Sunday night’s race. The bizarre incident caused damage to 19 cars and also left 10 spectators with minor injuries. NASCAR stopped the race to allow repairs to take place without any of the competitors involved being delayed
May 27th, 2013
Kevin Harvick snatched Charlotte NASCAR Sprint Cup victory from Kasey Kahne at the end of a gruelling 600-mile race interrupted by two red flags. Kahne had led 156 of the 400 laps and was as much as six seconds clear of the field at times in his Hendrick Chevrolet. But he was wrong-footed by a caution for debris with 16 laps to go.

Scott Speed is adding up to 10 further NASCAR Sprint Cup events to his schedule after his recent top-10 finish at Talladega secured extra backing for his Leavine Family Racing Ford Fusion. The ex-Toro Rosso Formula 1 racer now plans to combine top-level US stock car racing with a Global Rallycross Championship campaign for the rest of the season. His ninth-placed Cup finish at Talladega and victory in the opening GRC event at X Games Brazil last month have boosted his chances of extra outings, including this week’s Charlotte NASCAR round.
