iRacing.com have today confirmed the Volusia Speedway Park dirt oval will be added to the simulation once dirt surface simulation finally becomes available to the public. Volusia Speedway Park is a popular 1/2 mile dirt oval based in Barberville, FL. Known throughout America as "The World's Fastest Half-Mile" and popular amongst a wide range of National stockcar drivers, the track is sure to make a very positive addition to the service once it is releases later in the year. Opened in 1968 and later making the permanent switch to dirt as recently as 1997, the oval is a regular fixture on World of Outlaws Series and the Super DIRTcar Series. The venue is one of the more prestigious locations in the dirt oval racing world. Fun fact: Volusia Speedway Park opened as a 1/4 mile dirt oval in 1968. In August 1969 the venue expanded to 3/8 mile and ran in that configuration until 1971. For the 1972 season the venue became a 1/2 mile dirt oval and ran under those conditions until 1989, when the circuit owners converted the track to a paved racing surface. It operated as a paved oval until 1997, even running the high profile NASCAR Bush Series in 1989,90,91 and 1992. For the 1998 season Volusia was redeveloped back to it's dirt configuration which it maintains to this day. 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.” iRacing is an online only racing simulation available for PC.
