On behalf of everyone at Open-Wheels, welcome to the 2019 Open-Wheels.com 500 Mile Race.
Formed in the spirit of the late Tony Hulman, this event will take aim at personalizing the Memorial Day classic into a virtual “500” for our competitors – to make it truly feel like the Greatest Spectacle in Sim Racing. Our goal is to present sim racers with the closest experience possible to what drivers in open-wheel racing enjoy each May.
With an exciting two-day qualifications format featuring classic bumping, the option to drive any of the three Dallara Indy car chassis available on iRacing, full media coverage by Open-Wheels plus race day broadcast coverage, prizes, cash payouts and more, this event will be unlike any other 500-mile race on iRacing today.
With the support of the sim racing community and the motorsport community as a whole, I truly believe that we can grow this event into the most prestigious and most anticipated event in open-wheel sim racing each year.
I look forward to serving the competitors, sponsors and fans of this race by creating an event that all of us will be proud to be a part of for many years to come.
