Karam Locks Up iRX All-Star Invitational presented by Yokohama Title With Sonoma Win

He’s already got USF2000 and Indy Lights titles under his belt in the real world, but now, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing’s Sage Karam has a championship in the virtual one as well.

The NTT IndyCar Series driver and ARX2 race winner completed the quest for the iRacing Rallycross All-Star Invitational presented by Yokohama championship on Saturday with his fourth win of the season, and third in a row, from Sonoma Raceway. Karam held off eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series champion Nick Ottinger in the race to secure the title over four-time US rallycross champion Scott Speed and former ARX2 champion Conner Martell, in a battle that came down to the very last race.

A season-high 17 drivers entered the final All-Star event of the season, with Ottinger and Indianapolis 500 veteran Stefan Wilson making their debuts and each scoring top-five finishes in the process. They joined an eclectic driver roster that spanned nearly every major racing series in the world over the course of the season, with experience in NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula 1, WRC, IMSA, NHRA, Monster Jam, and off-road racing, as well as Roadshow editor in chief Tim Stevens, joining the rallycross regulars on the starting grid.
