  • Cam Stark
    contributing writer

    I began taking sim racing seriously about a year ago, but have loved motorsports from a young age. I began following Formula One first, then realized there are a huge variety of motorsports to watch. iRacing has opened my eyes even more to the diversity and volume of “real world” motorsports, let alone on the sim itself. With the huge varieties of series to choose from, you're spoiled for choice!

    Ever since I began iRacing, I wanted to improve on my ability, be it road or oval. Having not really heard about oval racing prior to November last year (blame the UK press), my mentality towards it has totally changed from what it would have initially been - it's awesome! I recently began road racing again - in the Star Mazda - and have been having a blast ever since. On top of racing the series I have the privilege of writing the articles for iRacing News.

    In all honesty I have surprised myself on iRacing. From being a fairly casual gamer/racer, it's been a world of difference, but it has far exceeded my expectations. I had a very brief stint driving in rFactor leagues, but I found my place of sim racing on this service, and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon.

Ty Brings Home the Win at State Park Speedway

Ty Majeski strikes a familiar pose . . .

Ty Majeski took a big step towards a successful defense of his ARCA Midwest Tour title by winning the second round of the 2015 series at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI.  Despite posting a record-breaking qualifying lap in the iRacing Ford Fusion, Majeski was bumped down to second by Tim Sauter.  After coming from P7 to second in the Fast Dash race, Majeski traded paint — and the lead — with Sauter over the final 13 laps of the 100 lap feature before the veteran sim racer grabbed the lead for keeps with five laps remaining. “(Sauter) got me a little messed up there and I returned the favor,” said Majeski.  “But that, that’s just typical short track racing. It was awesome! Kudos to him, he could’ve wrecked me [...]

Aleksi Uusi-Jaakkola leads the world’s top sim racers to Road America on Saturday for Round Four of the 2015 iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series in an online race that will be broadcast on iracing.com/live starting at 14:00 GMT (10 am eastern). As he has been since he grabbed the pole at Interlagos in his Team Redline debut, Uusi-Jaakkola will be the man to beat.  However, as Foracer Coanda Simsport’s Mitchell deJong showed with an impressive win at Sebring a fortnight ago, the fast Finn CAN be beaten.  On the heels of his triumphs at Interlagos and Phillip Island, Uus-Jaakkola looked positively mortal at Sebring where he qualified a (for him) lowly fifth and led just three of 52 laps in his Fanatec Williams-Toyota FW31 before trailing deJong across the [...]

One of the most-used words in Mitchell deJong’s vocabulary is “fortunately.”   Indeed, just about every time he discusses some aspect of his burgeoning career as a race driver he employs some variation of the word. While there’s no doubt fortune has smiled on the 17 year old Californian, his accomplishments to date suggest he makes his own luck.  After winning nine karting and off road championships between the ages of 10 and 16, deJong entered Global Rallycross Lite competition in 2013 with backing from Red Bull and copped a silver medal in the X Games of Los Angeles.  Not content with becoming the youngest driver to win an X Games medallion, he captured the gold medal in the X Games of Austin even as he was winning six of eight [...]

A busy day of sim racing at Sebring International Raceway on Saturday saw Mitchell deJong capture Round Three of the iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series even as Radicals Online (prototype) and Forarcer Coanda Simsport (GT3) motored to the class wins in the top split of the iRacing 12 Hours of Sebring.

Majeski’s Bid for World Series SLM Title Dashed

Ty Majeski’s bid to capture the Super Late Model championship in the 49th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing ended in a hard crash on Friday night.  Majeski, who went into Friday night’s 35 lap race holding a one point lead in the SLM standings, was running fifth when an apparent suspension failure on Lap 24 pitched the iRacing Ford Fusion into the wall with devastating results.  Fortunately, Majeski escaped serious injury but his bid for the World Series championship was over. Despite failing to score points in the final two events, Majeski still finished ninth in the standings on the strength of one win and three top six finishes in five starts.  A finalist in the 2015 Alan Kulwicki Driver Development Program, Majeski hopes to defend his [...]

Majeski Takes World Series Super Late Model Lead

For the second time in as many races, Ty Majeski stormed back from some early misfortune to grab a strong finish in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway last night.  After starting fourth, Majeski got caught up in a Lap One crash and took the restart in P24.  Up to tenth spot just past the midpoint of the 50 lap race, Majeski grabbed 7th spot by Lap 34 and moved up another position with four laps remaining to bring the iRacing Ford Fusion home in sixth place. Majeski’s strong comeback drive vaulted him to the top of the World Series Super Late Model standings and with two races remaining (tonight’s 35 lapper and Saturday’s 100 lap finale) he leads Garrett Jones by a single [...]

Ty Majeski’s Wednesday evening got off to a disappointing start when he finished P13 in the opening round of the Super Late Model doubleheader in the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.  But Majeski capped the evening with a spectacular performance in the iRacing.com Ford Fusion in the nightcap 35 lap race.  Starting 24th, Majeski worked his way up to P13 as the midpoint of the race neared, only to get spun and start working his way back to the front again.  In the remaining 21 laps he passed all but three cars to come home fourth.  Those finishes leave Majeski in second place in the overall standings of the SLM division of the World Series, just three points behind Steve Wallace. The competition continues [...]

With one win under his belt already, Majeski is in the thick of the battle for the Super Late Model championship in the seven race series that concludes in Saturday night.

Ty Majeski wheeled his iRacing.com Ford Fusion to a dramatic win in last night’s Super Late Model race at New Smyrna Speedway, the second round in the 49th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.  After posting the second fastest time in qualifying, Majeski sliced his way to the front from ninth on the inverted grid.  With ten laps remaining in the 35 lap race, he got under Garrett Jones to take the lead and went on to take the win. “I got up front and started running down the leader,” Majeski said. “He was real tight in (Turns) 1 and 2 and I could get underneath him, but it was real tough to pass. I guess I would have expected him to do the same to me. We [...]

Majeski is the first iRacer to top the 10,000 iRating mark -- a fact noted by his fellow iRacers in "The Posse."

Ty Majeski has plenty of opportunities to get his 2015 racing season off to a good start; seven in fact.  That’s the number of races he’ll be running in his Super Late Model Ford at New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, February 13-21. Nor will Majeski be piloting just any SLM Ford.  He’ll be at the wheel of the iRacing.com Ford Fusion, a tribute not only to iRacing’s confidence in Majeski, but to the role iRacing has played in Majeski’s career to date. It’s been an impressive career, one that saw the former Wisconsin state go-karting champion take a couple of wins in ASA trucks in 2011 before moving to Super Late Models.  At the same time he was developing into a rising star on the [...]

Round Five of the iRacing Korea League’s 2nd Drivetech Challenge saw DongWoo Gang2 come out on top of a fierce battle with Jaebok Hyeon that saw the two SpecRacer Fords trade the lead – and a little paint – over the course of 25 laps of sim racing at Summit Point Raceway. The race began with Wonil Lee on pole from Hyeon with Gang2 and Dong Gyu Kim on the second row of the grid.  The order was shuffled on the opening lap as an off-track excursion by Lee enabled Hyeon to grab the lead from Kim and Gang2 with the pole winner crossing the stripe in fourth place. Hyeon’s lead was anything but secure.  Although Kim fell out after a couple of laps, Gong2 moved into second and harassed [...]

Less than two years since taking his first laps in a real race car, Chris Beaufait has already earned awards including the Skip Barber Challenge’s Most Improved Driver.  And while the green flag has yet to wave on the racing season, Beaufait would appear to have the pole for the Most Frequent Flyer Miles award in the 2015 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge which kicks-off with Friday’s BMW Performance 200 at Daytona International Speedway. That’s because Beaufait plans to commute to at least half a dozen races this season from his home in Bejing – as in China – where he is Group Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and China for Vestas Wind Systems A/S, “the world’s largest manufacturer, seller, installer and servicer of wind turbines.” Winging back and [...]
