iRacing was founded by Dave Kaemmer and John Henry in 2004. The iRacing.com website and the racing simulation were released in August of 2008. You may remember Dave Kaemmer as a co-founder of the Papyrus Design Group which developed one of the first true racing simulations, Grand Prix Legends. Papyrus was also behind the development of several NASCAR simulations including NASCAR Racing 2003. John Henry is the owner of the Boston Red Sox baseball team and co-owner of Roush-Fenway Racing.
