The world’s best virtual dirt racers will have their eye on the prize in one of the most intensive World of Outlaws series on iRacing through the month of May and early June, as the iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Pro Qualifying Series makes its return with a six-race slate beginning May 2. The top finishers across this series will have the opportunity to compete at the professional level in the iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series, where they’ll do battle for their share of a $25,000 purse.
Results in the iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Pro Qualifying Series will be the first indication of which drivers will be in contention for the pro title and a trip to Charlotte for the World of Outlaws World Finals in the fall. The series features six tracks of varying lengths and banking, forcing drivers to adapt their Super Late Models to all sorts of race conditions. Each race session opens on Monday night at 8:45PM ET/5:45PM PT, and is open to all iRacers with a Dirt Oval A 1.0 license and higher. The full schedule is as follows:
- May 2: Kokomo Speedway
- May 9: Cedar Lake Speedway
- May 16: Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55
- May 23: Weedsport Speedway
- May 30: Williams Grove Speedway
- June 6: The Dirt Track at Charlotte
In each event, drivers will take on one of two eight-lap heats and a 12-lap consolation race to make it to the 18-car, 40-lap feature. Multiple race splits will run at the same time, with up to 26 drivers per split. Each driver’s five best point scores out of six will count in the final standings, and the 20 highest points finishers who are eligible to compete at iRacing’s pro level will receive an invitation to the iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series that kicks off on July 25.
