MOUNT OLIVE, Illinois, May 10, 2020 --- Bobby Krug wins two iRacing Fixed Indy 500 races back-to-back. Although there is no Indy 500 in the month of May this year, the tradition continued this weekend with iRacing’s full length, fixed setup Indy 500 series. Krug rolled off from 28th on both Friday night and Sunday morning. A combination of Krug’s sharp driving and his iRacing crew chief Joseph Selby’s pit strategy would lead him to not only win one but both of the Indy 500 races. Over the combined 1,000 miles, Krug led 160 laps.
“I was happy when we won the first one but winning two races in the same weekend is mind-blowing,” Krug said. “There were both tough races and it ranks up there with my real-life achievements.”
Bobby Krug started on iRacing service in 2015 and uses it as a tool in the off-season to keep his skill set sharp. Krug has seen a lot of success on the service, most notably finishing second in an iRacing competition to earn his way to a Skip Barber Racing School in 2019.

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, October 11, 2019 --- Bobby Krug takes the next step in his racing career with a one-day Skip Barber Racing School at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Krug earned the school by finishing second in Skip Barber’s iRacing competition at the St. Louis Auto Show in January.
The school day started with classroom lessons covering the basics of car control. The second quarter of the day was spent behind the wheel of Skip Barber’s Mustang GTs on the skid pad and autocross track applying the lessons learned in the classroom. The last half of the day was spent doing lead-follow sessions in the Mygale FIA Formula 4 car.
“It was an awesome opportunity to do a Skip Barber Racing School, especially in an open-wheel car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Krug said. “I learned a lot that I will take with me back to karting and whatever comes next in my racing career.”
After finishing third in the points in the 2019 Margay Racing Ignite Series at the Gateway Kartplex, Krug earned another one-day Skip Barber Racing School which will get him another step closer to his SCCA competition license.
