On March 29th, 2017, iRacing released dirt oval racing to the service, nearly a year after it was announced. The launch brought five cars and four tracks to the service, Dirt Legends, Dirt Street Stock, dirt version of the NASCAR Chevrolet Silverado and Toyota Tundra, three Late Models (Limited, Pro and Super) and three Winged Sprint Cars (305, 360 and 410).

We’re going to find out, with the help of our resident dirt racing expert – and former 410 winged sprint car driver – Billy Strange.
