iRacing have confirmed the UMP Modified and Lanier National Speedway dirt track will be released to the simulation next month. With loose surface racing have taken something of the limelight in iRacing over recent months, the new Lanier National Speedway will add another new short oval dirt track to the simulation and will mark the very first time a 3/8 mile dirt oval has appeared on the service. In something of a nice move by iRacing, the Lanier Speedway will be a free piece of content for existing members of iRacing when it hits next in September, surely meaning it will feature heavily in the scheduled race events on the software over the coming months. The UMP Modified car has been built in cooperation with Mike McKinney of McKinney Motorsports, who as well as allowing iRacing to scan his car as a basis for the model in game, also provided plenty of data towards the eventual physics calculations used to create the new content. McKinney is no stranger to success in UMP Modifieds, having tasted victory in 17 A-Main feature events and most recently having taken championship honours at the 2016 UMP Northern Illinois, 2016 Kankakee County Speedway and 2016 Fairbury American Legion Speedway. Both car and track will be made available as part of the September build update to iRacing.com. iRacing is a large scale multiplayer racing simulation exclusive to PC and available from Steam.
