On behalf of everyone at Open-Wheels.com, welcome to the 2021 Open-Wheels 500 Mile Race.
Formed in the spirit of the late Tony Hulman, this annual event takes aim at personalizing the Memorial Day classic into a virtual “500” for our competitors – to make it truly feel like the World’s Greatest Sim Race. Our goal each year is to present sim racers (and real-life drivers) 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 is unlike any other 500-mile event on iRacing today.
With the support of the sim racing community and the motorsport community as a whole, this event has quickly grown into the most prestigious and most anticipated event in open-wheel sim racing each year.
Open-Wheels invites all drivers to compete in the 2021 event, with qualifications set for November 13 and 14, and race day on Sunday, November 21.
I look forward to serving the competitors, sponsors and fans of this race once again in 2021 by creating an event that all of us will be proud to be a part of for years to come.
