Looking for that private league feel in an official iRacing series? Would you like to see bigger splits in “regular” races? Or maybe you’d just like a little something extra from your weekly races. If you answered yes to any of the above (and even if you didn’t), then iRacing’s newest mini-series – JWH Racing League – is for you. From now until the end of Season 3, the league will bring together iRacers with all levels of experience and skill for spirited but friendly competition in the regularly-scheduled NASCAR iRacing Class C Series race (Thursdays at 8:45 pm ET) and the Skip Barber Series race (Sundays at 3:45 pm ET). As with any other regular iRacing event, each split matches sim racers with similar skills and experience. The beauty of JWHRL is that you’ll also be competing with everyone in all the other splits – no matter the strength of field – for league points. Otherwise the races will run exactly the same as always; nothing will be different apart from the fact that league points and standings will be calculated off-line and reported on the Member Site and inRacingNews.
