The iRacing World of Outlaws Carquest Auto Parts Sprint Car Series season reaches the halfway point of its 2021-22 season tonight, visiting Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 for the first time in its history. As always, the action can be seen live at 9PM ET on twitch.tv/iracing and DirtVision.
Last Race: After a thrilling late-race battle between a pair of prospective first-time winners, it was local hero Kenny Miller who outdueled Timothy Smith to take the checkered flag at Lincoln Speedway last Monday. Miller led the final nine laps of the race after catching and passing Smith on the outside, and he had an uncontested victory on the final lap as Smith, Alex Bergeron, and James Edens tangled while battling for second. Kendal Tucker and Clayton Tilley would avoid the last-lap carnage to jump up to second and third.
Last Season: I-55 joins last week’s venue at Lincoln as the second and final new track to the iRacing World of Outlaws Carquest Auto Parts Sprint Car Series calendar for the 2021-22 season.
Track Info: Pevely, Missouri’s Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is a high-banked, third-mile clay oval that has long been a staple of premier dirt oval racing in the United States. With an incredibly fast racing surface and layout, its track record for sprint cars is now under the 10-second mark. In the real world, it’ll host the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on April 14-15 for the I-55 Outlaws Showdown and August 4-5 for the Ironman 55 and Night Before the Ironman.
Coming Up: The iRacing World of Outlaws Carquest Sprint Car Series kicks off the second half of its season on Monday, January 2 at Fairbury Speedway. Last year’s visit to Fairbury saw one of the most unpredictable finishes of the season, as leader Cameron Merriman wound up in the fence coming to the white flag and future iRacing World of Outlaws Late Model champion Evan Seay inherited the top spot and checkered flag.
