35 of iRacing’s top dirt oval racers will battle for their share of $25,000 starting on June 22 as the iRacing World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model World Championship returns for its 2020 season. After an intense championship battle that went down to the wire last season, defending series champion Blake Matjoulis, two-time defending iRacing World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Car World Champion Alex Bergeron, and talented iRacers from across America will kick off a 10-week chase for the championship at Volusia Speedway Park.
Nine of the most prestigious dirt tracks in the United States make up the schedule, from the iconic Eldora Speedway and Knoxville Raceway to Lernerville Speedway, the lone track to see two stops on this year’s calendar. With 50 green flag laps per feature to work with, drivers will be fighting for up to $300 per week, with $10,000 going to the series champion at season’s end.
This year’s driver lineup boasts residents of 15 states and three countries, including a series-high six from North Carolina. Other drivers who will return to the series based on their 2019 performance including title contenders Kendal Tucker and Kevin Dedmon, eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series regular Casey Kirwan, and inaugural series champion Zach Leonhardi. They’ll be joined by a quick mix of drivers that earned their way in through this year’s qualifying series, led by champion Shad Prescott, who returns to the World Championship after some solid performances last year.
