With the recent releases of Suzuka, Iowa Speedway, Okayama and Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, iRacing’s short track racers could perhaps be forgiven for feeling slightly slighted.  Not any more.  There’s a veritable bonanza of bull rings in the iRacing pipeline.

For openers, Mosport Speedway, traditional site of the season opener to the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, is currently in production. When it’s released, any iRacer who who already owns Mosport International Raceway will automatically see iRacing’s newest half mile oval added to their collection of tracks.

Also in the works is the .686 mile oval at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis (formerly known as Indianapolis Raceway Park), home to NASCAR’s Craftsman Truck and Nationwide Series not to mention scores of USAC events including the legendary Night Before the 500.

There’s a veritable bonanza of bull rings in the iRacing pipeline.

Want more? How about New Smyrna Speedway? Host to short track racing’s version of Speedweeks, New Smyrna regularly sees the likes of Kyle Busch, Mark Martin, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart take time out from that “other” track up the beach every February to return to their short track roots.   The ink may still be drying on the contract, but rest assured the high banked .48 track will be joining iRacing’s catalogue.

Want less? You’ll be hard-pressed to find a short track with less banking than Virginia’s Langley Speedway. Or one with a more diverse array of short track racing, from Late Models, Grand Stock, Modifieds and Legends to Super Street, Super Trucks, HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts and Enduros. The .395 mile oval with no more than 6 degrees of banking is also under contract with iRacing and will be scanned in the near future.

Mosport. LOR. New Smyrna. Langley.   Short track racing is alive and well on iRacing.com.

And rest assured there are also some goodies in the pipeline for those sim racers who prefer more than a half mile of virtual pavement. Oulton Park, Kentucky Speedway and Twin Ring Motegi are currently in production, with Oulton Park the next in line for release.

How about 5 Flags Speedway? Home of the Snowball Derby it’s one of the biggest late model races of the year. Will you ever give us that track?

Redwood Acres Raceway is the the oldest track currently in operation in California. A Northern California track would be cool to see on iRacing some day.

I really wish iRacing would get more southern short tracks, such as:

Motor Mile
Greenville Pickens

Is there or do u foresee possible dirt tracks, cars (Sprint cars, dirt mods, street stocks, etc) in the future?

Salem Speedway would be a good track high banked located in southern IN everyone from Person to the Waltrips to Kenny Schrader had raced at this track, and is the fastest asphalt track in Indiana.
