Some races are wreck fests, and some aren’t. There’s no way to know which is which until you’ve entered them, but you can take some steps to avoid wreck strewn races. The best advice I can give is to try to race in the mornings. Another good piece of advice is to avoid Saturday races, and even most Sunday races. The reasons should be obvious if you give it a little thought.
As we wait for iRacing to release some idea of the 2016 Season 1 schedule, let’s take a look at some of the oval racing that will be taking place during Week 13.
As usual, iRacing will present the Week 13 Street Stock Series for oval racers. This is a chance for anyone who is looking to climb the license ladder to improve or likely suffer safety rating loss. If you’re just in it to have fun (as you should be), Week 13 Street Stocks often offer some good racing. Street Stocks will visit the following tracks during Week 13:
- Charlotte Legends Oval
- Lanier National Speedway
- Oxford Plains Speedway
- South Boston Speedway
- Thompson International Speedway
Since these are official races that offer the opportunity to advance, all ratings are in effect.
If you want to run unofficial races, try the Carburetor Cup running at Talladega SuperSpeedway, or the Pickup Cup at Phoenix 2008.
iRacing will also bring you the Week 13 Figure 8 races at Irwindale with the VW Jetta TDi and the Pontiac Solstice.
Once the new build has been deployed, you can run the Super Late Models at the all new Southern National Motorsports Park in the “Week 13 Rumble in the Pines.”
It’s not oval racing, but it’s worth mentioning that the Week 13 McLaren F1 Winter Sprint will be running after the new build has been deployed. This features the new McLaren MP4-30 on the Nurburgring GP-Strecke.
