iRacing Named Exclusive World of Outlaws Online Racing Partner

March 9th, 2017 by KevinBNo Comments

iRacing.com and the World of Outlaws announced today that iRacing will become the World of Outlaws exclusive online racing partner.  The agreement brings the world’s leading online motorsports simulation service together with North America’s premier dirt track racing series and comes as iRacing prepares to launch its highly anticipated dirt racing feature on March 29.

Known around the racing world as “The Greatest Show on Dirt,” the World of Outlaws sanctions nearly 140 events a year throughout North America as part of the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series and the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series, while iRacing’s 235,000 plus member subscribers race dozens of precisely-modeled cars on laser-scanned versions of nearly 100 of the world’s greatest ovals and road courses.

“We couldn’t be happier than to be associated with the World of Outlaws at the dawn of our online dirt racing feature,” says Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for iRacing.com.  “iRacers around the world are already eager to try their hands at dirt racing, and our partnership with the World of Outlaws will ramp up their enthusiasm to another level.”

“This is really exciting news for World of Outlaws fans and competitors,” says Ben Geisler, Chief Marketing Officer of the World of Outlaws.  “iRacing is recognized around the world for delivering a remarkably authentic racing experience, and we can’t wait for our fans to see for themselves what it’s like to race our cars at legendary tracks like Eldora, Williams Grove, and Volusia Speedways.”


The agreement is part of a long-term commitment by iRacing and the World of Outlaws to integrate their brands in the dirt and online racing communities.   In addition to the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car and Late Model Series, the World of Outlaws’ grassroots sanctioning body, DIRTcar Racing will be partnering with iRacing to bring authenticity to the entry level divisions featured as part of the dirt launch.  DIRTcar Racing sanctions thousands of races in more than a dozen divisions ranging from Street Stocks to Pro Late Models and more  at hundreds of tracks across the United States and Canada.  In collaboration, iRacing plans to develop online versions of a variety of DIRTcar Racing series as a core element of its new dirt racing feature.

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
