The development team at iRacing has recently announced their plans to add Volusia Speedway Park to its ever-expanding catalog of almost 100 laser-scanned tracks. Volusia will follow Eldora and Williams Grove speedways as the third dirt track for the PC racing sim and all are expected to launch later this year.
Volusia Speedway Park is probably best known as “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile.” The track, located in Barberville, FL, opened its doors back in 1968 and has hosted a variety of national racing series. The track actually started life as a paved circuit but switched to dirt in the 1990's and hasn't changed since.
“We’re excited to join the other great race tracks on iRacing.com,” says Volusia Speedway President Tom Deery. “Volusia Speedway Park is famous for some of the fastest dirt track racing to be found, and I’m sure iRacers everywhere will enjoy the challenge of racing here.”
“Volusia Speedway Park will be a great addition to our lineup,” says Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for iRacing.com. “The fact that great racers like Donny Schatz, Brad Sweet, Shane Clanton, Brandon Sheppard and others keep coming back to race every year tells you all you need to know about Volusia Speedway Park’s place in American racing.”
No release window for Volusia Speedway Park’ has been mentioned, we'll have more on iRacing's upcoming dirt content very soon.
