iRacing.com Sponsors Dylan Murry in 2013 Legends and Karts
Bedford, MA (December 17) – iRacing.com, the world’s foremost online motorsports simulation service, announced today it will sponsor Dylan Murry’s Legends racing campaign during the 2013 season. Murry, son of noted international sports car racer David Murry, will be racing his Legends car at Atlanta Motor Speedway in both the Legends of Georgia and the National Legends series.
Murry has been racing karts the past three years and has won a number of championships including the 2009 Andretti’s Pro Cup Karting League and the 2010 WKA National Jr Sportsman Boxstock. This past season Murry collected a total of 18 feature wins and two more titles, including the GSKA and Southeastern Divisional championships.
“I am proud to announce that iRacing has partnered with me for 2013,” says Murry, age 12. “I will represent iRacing in Legends racing and kart racing next year.”
“iRacing is delighted to help support Dylan’s 2013 Legends program,” says Kevin Bobbitt, iRacing.com Director of Marketing. “His karting record speaks for itself and he’s clearly ready to make the move to Legends cars. On behalf of the more than 40,000 iRacers around the world, we wish him the best of luck.”
As one of those 40,000 iRacers, Murry plans to put his iRacing to good use in the coming season.
“I just drove my new Legends car at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the first time,” he says. “I had driven a Legends car at AMS many times on iRacing. Driving it on iRacing helped me so much when I drove my Legends car there for real. I couldn't believe how realistic it was. It didn't take me anytime to get up to speed.
“I am so excited to have iRacing support me next year. It will be a huge advantage getting seat time at the track before I even get there.”
