Iracing Adds 4 new Dirt/Clay ovals this season, with more to come.

iRacing has gone dirt if you’ve never driven clay before you are in for a high learning curve. My respect level for the drivers who do this is through the roof. It looks easy, but these people are artists. Lots of drivers are turning to iRacing dirt to fulfill their dream or brush up on technique.

If you haven’t ever watched an iRacing race you are in for a treat. iRacing is more of a racing simulator than it is a game. iRacing cars and trucks are adjustable and you do have tire wear, run out of fuel, and have incidents.

Make sure you view this on full screen. The is the same view the driver has for the race. Ride with my favorite iRacing driver. Matt Orr or as he calls himself, “Empty Box”. View what Matt sees on his computer screen, and listen to the driver and spotter chatter. I like Matt for his skill and the things he says about this sport. Each car, except eh pace car, is being driven by a human driver who is logged on to his computer with his or hers steering wheel and pedals,
