We are excited to launch the first season of Speedway, powered by iRacing! iRacing Motorsports Simulation (iRacing) is the world leader in the online racing simulation and gaming market. Speedway is a new racing simulation competition consisting of three different series dedicated to high school students in the High School Esports League (HSEL), college students in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), and members of the armed forces through the Military Gaming League (MGL).
Unlike other esports competitions, drivers in Speedway will be hand selected to compete after applying through various kickoff campaigns such as a social media campaign called #SpeedwayMyWay. Those selected will get the honor of being one of the few to participate in their series. In addition, each participant will receive their own special merch box consisting of steering wheels, equipment, and exclusive merchandise.
Drivers will compete in a four week regular season where each week they will race in heats to qualify for the main event race on Sundays. Points will be earned based on how they finish in each race and the season’s point leaders will compete in a final race to crown a champion in all three series.
