Registration now open for $1,000-to-win iRacing spectacular May 4 & 11
From the fastest-growing Dirt Oval league on iRacing comes a new challenge for the ultimate Big Block Modified racers and money chasers – the DIRTcar Digital Dash.
DIRTcar eSports’ inaugural special event on Wednesday, May 4 and Wednesday, May 11, puts up a $3,600+ purse – with a $1,000 winner’s share – in a 50-lap, fixed setup, Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modified showdown on the virtual Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The DIRTcar Digital Dash will spread over two days, one week apart, and follow the traditional DIRTcar eSports format, which consists of three separate rounds of racing – the Qualifying Round, the Preliminary Round, and the Final Round. All races will be contested using iRacing’s default fixed setup for Big Block Modifieds at Charlotte.
Racing begins with the Qualifying Round on May 4, where entrants will be divided up at random into individual sessions of 24 (maximum) and contest a 2-lap time-trial session to set the starting grid for a 30-lap Feature. The top-12 finishers from each Feature will transfer to the Preliminary Round on the following Wednesday, May 11.
Preliminary Round contestants will then be divided up into two separate sessions, both running one complete racing program including Hot Laps, Qualifying, Heats, Last Chance races and a Feature. The top-12 finishers from each Feature will then transfer into the Final Round.
The Final Round takes to the track that same night with a time-trial session for all 24 finalists to set the starting grid for the 50-lap finale.
Registration for the inaugural DIRTcar Digital Dash is now open at the link below. The “early registration” period runs through Saturday, April 30 at 11:59pm ET, with an entry fee of $25. Any driver who enters Sunday, May 1 through Monday, May 2 at 11:59pm ET, will pay the “late registration” fee of $35.
The entry form will close completely on Monday, May 2 at midnight, and will not reopen.
The $3,625 event purse will be distributed throughout the 24 Final Round Feature starters, as shown on the chart below.
