Round three of the 2023 iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series takes the battle for this year’s $25,000 championship purse to Cedar Lake Speedway. As always, Monday’s action can be seen live starting at 9 p.m. (ET) on DIRTVision and at twitch.tv/iracing.
Last Race: A pair of series champions and teammates occupied the top two spots at the finish in Monday’s action from Fairbury Speedway, as Blake Matjoulis led defending champion Evan Seay across the line. Matjoulis won the pole, took the first heat, and led all 50 laps of the feature race, while Seay got around Heat 2 winner Logan Rumsey off the final restart and spent the second half of the race looking for a way past Matjoulis to no avail.
Last Year: It was a big weekend for Matjoulis at Cedar Lake last year too, as he led from flag to flag in the 50-lap main event. Once again, Seay was the runner-up in the feature, this time coming from eighth place on the starting grid, while Dezmond Busby took home third place. Matjoulis closed his points deficit to Seay to a single point with the victory.
Track Facts: Cedar Lake Speedway has been a mainstay of the World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series for quite some time. Its premier event is the USA Nationals, which will see the series return to the 3/8-mile oval on August 3-5 as drivers battle for a $50,000 winner’s check. Based in New Richmond, Wisconsin, the track was built in 1957.
Next Race: Following Cedar Lake, the iRacing World of Outlaws ButtKicker Late Model Series heads to Port Royal Speedway for its fourth round of the season on Monday, July 31. As one of iRacing’s newest dirt ovals, Port Royal is the first new addition to the schedule for the 2023 season. The track was released as part of the 2022 Season 3 build last June.
