BITE BACK: Jackson Returns to Street Stock Victory Lane at Weedsport

After three-straight weeks marred by penalties and disqualifications, defending DIRTcar eSports Street Stock League champion Tyler Jackson returned to Victory Lane last Wednesday night at Weedsport Speedway.

Jackson capitalized on the invert in his Heat Race to pick up the win in the eight-lap dash and claim a P4 starting spot for the 35-lap Feature. It didn’t take long for him to march his way to the head of the field, advancing to second only five laps in.

A caution-filled opening 10 laps played right into Jackson’s hands, enabling him to pass cars and instantly make up ground on his opponents ahead. Upon catching leader Drew Hopkins on Lap 7, the caution was thrown again, putting Jackson right to the outside of Hopkins for the restart.

At the drop of the green, Jackson used the high-side momentum to sneak past Hopkins for the lead on the top. The yellow was once again thrown just after the two crossed the start/finish line to complete Lap 8, making Jackson the new race leader.

Once the restarts were changed to single-file for the remainder of the race, Jackson took off and set it on cruise control, leading the final 27 circuits around the virtual rendition of Weedsport to bag his first League victory of the season.

Three-time Season 5 Feature winner Jaycee Floyd finished runner-up after trouble in his Heat Race, transferring in through a B-Main and driving all the way from 17th on the grid to bag P2. Hopkins held on for third and shrunk points leader Kyle Jared’s advantage down to 92 points with two races left on the season.

PHOTO FINISH: Battenfield Edges Jared, Behning by .024 to Win at Knoxville

Several of iRacing’s greatest dirt racers have found their way to DIRTcar eSports Victory Lane since its establishment in 2020. Rocky Battenfield may have just produced one of the most exciting in Street Stock League history Wednesday night, beating points leader Kyle Jared and Brunson Behning to the finish line by .024 seconds to score his first career DIRTcar eSports Feature win.

Battenfield, the iRacing Street Stock veteran racer from Oklahoma, started on the pole and took the early lead, holding off all challengers through the first 20 laps of the 30-lap event. After a few restarts, League points leader Jared had ramped-up momentum and gave Battenfield a serious challenge to his inside, taking the lead briefly on Lap 25 with a strong run through Turns 1-2.

As soon as Battenfield retook the lead out of Turn 4, a caution flag was displayed, pausing the battle briefly. After the ensuing restart, the battle came to a boiling point.

Coming to the white flag, Jared and Behning trailed Battenfield by only a bumper’s length and charged into Turn 1. Behning gave Battenfield a nudge on his left-rear corner out of Turn 2 and got under the #97 going into Turn 3. Jared, who carried momentum on the top out of Turn 2, quickly changed lanes entering Turn 3 and darted his #045 to the very bottom underneath both Behning and Battenfield, making it a three-wide drag race for the win coming to the checkered flag.

Without any big contact, Battenfield barely edged both drivers at the line to take the win and the $100 check.

“Whooo, I tell you what, I am sweating bullets right now,” Battenfield said in the DIRTcar eSports Twitch post-race interview. “That was so much fun.

“I figured if I could just hold the bottom, I would be okay, but even [Jared] was getting a pretty good run on the outside of me. He’d catch me in the right-rear a little bit going into Turn 3, which really tightened me up, but… that finish, how about that?”

Jared held onto second at the line and again increased his points lead, while Behning crossed in third – a career best with DIRTcar eSports.

Floyd Wins at Cedar Lake for Third-Straight Victory

For the first time in DIRTcar eSports Street Stock League history, a three-peat winner has emerged, as Jaycee Floyd collected his third Feature victory in four career starts last Wednesday night at iRacing‘s Cedar Lake Speedway.

Floyd started fourth on the grid in the 35-lap main event and worked his way past League points leader Kyle Jared for second on Lap 16. The caution flag was displayed two laps later, and Floyd lined up to the outside of race leader Chris Hill for the ensuing restart.

The green flag dropped, and Floyd made a power move around the outside of Hill down the backstretch to take the lead going into Turn 3. Floyd said the pass was all about getting the jump on the leader when the green came out.

“Once you learn where somebody likes to go, you kinda catch-on,” Floyd said in the DIRTcar eSports Twitch post-race interview. “I timed it right both times, and got to the top.”

Now out in front, Floyd led the field around the virtual 3/8-mile oval the rest of the distance, holding off the field behind him to bag another $100 check and his third-straight victory in the League.

Floyd Wins Second-Straight After Jackson’s Penalty at Fairbury

Two wins in three starts for the DIRTcar eSports Street Stock League’s newest Feature winner, Jaycee Floyd.

The Iowa driver led the first 34 laps of the 35-lap main event at Fairbury Speedway before getting a strong challenge from defending League champion Tyler Jackson on the final lap. Floyd had been strong all race on the top side of the high-banked 1/4-mile, but suddenly swung his car down into the low/middle groove through Turns 3-4 to keep Jackson’s challenge at bay.

After getting a great run down the backstretch, Jackson drove hard into Turn 3 on the bottom and slid up the track, making contact with Floyd through Turn 4. The two drag raced down the frontstretch to the stripe; Jackson edging Floyd at the line by .055 seconds to steal the win on the final lap.

However, Jackson was later penalized in post-race review when it was discovered he had failed to drop to the tail of the field after entering the pits for a quick repair under yellow on Lap 9. Race officials assessed a two-spot penalty for each car Jackson started in front of on the restart following the Lap 9 caution, placing him 15th in the official results, and awarding Floyd with the victory.

Floyd Wins at I-55 in Second Career Street Stock League Start

For the fourth time in four races, a new face has graced DIRTcar eSports Street Stock League Victory Lane.

Last Wednesday night, the Iowan conquered the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, winning separate battles with League regulars Isaac Salas and Kyle Jared in the second half of the 35-lapper to score his first DIRTcar eSports Feature win in only his second career start.

From seventh on the grid, Floyd advanced to sixth before the first caution flag was displayed on Lap 7. When the field went back to green, Floyd went on a spree, climbing sixth to the lead in six laps around the virtual 1/3-mile oval. Salas, the outside polesitter, took the lead back on Lap 14, while Floyd slipped back to second.

For the next seven laps, Salas and Floyd engaged in a merciless battle for the top spot, going side-by-side before Floyd edged ahead on Lap 21. A bit of beating-and-banging erupted in the process, inciting some frustration.

“I tried to give him as much room as I could on the bottom, because he had the line,” Floyd said in the DIRTcar eSports Twitch post-race interview. “Obviously, (at I-55), it’s on the bottom. So I figured I was giving him enough room that he could still do it, but he kept driving into my left-rear.

“But, it’s how anybody would be if they were racing for the lead. If someone’s gonna keep driving into you, you’re gonna say something, obviously. It was a good race with him.”

After the final restart on Lap 24, Floyd grabbed the lead and led the remaining 11 laps, holding off a hard charge from 11th-starting Kyle Jared to seal the victory.
