CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The iRacers Lounge Podcast Oval Series will utilize the new Class B stock cars released as part of iRacing’s Sept. 5 update, beginning with the Sept. 8 race at Auto Club Speedway.
The iRacers Lounge Podcast Oval Series will become the first series broadcasted on Twitch to race the new Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang and Toyota Supra.
