The iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series season heads to Volusia Speedway Park tonight for its penultimate round of the 2022 season. As always, the action can be seen live at 9PM ET on twitch.tv/iracing and DirtVision.
Last Race: Evan Seay’s dominant campaign continued with his fourth win in eight events last Monday at Weedsport Speedway, extending his championship lead to a nearly insurmountable 74 with two races remaining. Seay made the decisive pass in the 50-lap feature on Lap 13, working his way up from fifth on the grid and patiently holding the inside line on polesitter Logan Rumsey for more than a lap before clearing him and pulling away.
Zack McSwain would get around Rumsey late in the race for second place as the feature went caution-free, while Blake Matjoulis would finish fourth after starting 17th and Kendal Tucker would complete the top five. Matjoulis, Tucker, Rumsey, and Dylan Wilson left Weedsport as the top five drivers in the championship standings.
Track Info: Located in Barberville, Florida, Volusia Speedway Park is known as “The World’s Fastest Half Mile.” For more than half a century, the track has hosted major events through its various iterations, even temporarily spending about a decade as a paved track before reverting to dirt for the 1998 season. A trip to Volusia signifies the start of the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar seasons, and the DIRTcar Nationals in February represent one of the sport’s most prestigious events.
