The Grassroots all star series featuring cars from the 1987 Nascar Cup series is coming your way in iRacing at the start of 2022.
The Grassroots All-Star Series (GASS) is preparing for its inaugural season, starting in January 2022 on the iRacing platform. Launching with the “SoBo Sportsman Division”, the league will be hosting a weekly racing series at South Boston Speedway featuring the classic 1987 NASCAR cup cars.
Sportsman Division drivers will be competing in a short track format with 12 lap heats, 8 lap consolation races and 35 lap features. Throughout the course of the 10 week season, division regulars will also compete in the Triple Crown series, three extra distance races.
The free-to-run, open set-up series, won’t be live streamed, but will be recorded with races edited and uploaded to YouTube.
Race Director Paul Miles, formerly of the Sim Auto Racing Association goes on to mention.
