The NASCAR Cup Series schedule is starting to pick up. This will be the fourth Cup Race since returning on May 17th. They will once again be at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wednesday nights race will be only 500 km and just like last Wednesday, there will be no qualifying or practice. They will invert the field just like last week as well so, 1-20 will be flipped and 21-40 will start were they finished Sunday. Continue reading →
Another week, another Pro Invitational win for William Byron. This win at Dover is Byron’s third in the past four weeks, throwing out the sixth-place finish at virtual Talladega. A pass on the inside with eight laps to go gave Byron the lead. Christopher Bell would manage to move himself up to the second position, and with just one lap left to go Bell was pressing hard. He was able to get to within a quarter of a second on Byron, before the No. 24 car captured another hard fought eNASCAR victory.
This week the Pro Invitational Series heads to virtual Dover. This will likely be the second to last Pro Invitational Series race. The NASCAR Cup series has a plan in place to come back starting May 17th at Darlington. That will come with multiple Cup, Xfinity, and Truck races throughout the week. The formatting for those races will be a little different than normal. Dale and I are both excited to get things going with the real races again. However, we are still excited to bring you our top drivers for the next couple of eRaces as well.
DraftKings came through in the clutch and finally added paid iRacing contests. It was a little less than a month ago that we were getting into the swing of things for NASCAR DFS. Then COVID-19 stepped in and forced the season to be put on hold, yet here we are already into the third week of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series.
It was a very convincing showing for Martin Truex Jr., taking over the lead from Denny Hamlin during the first wave of pit stops and not relinquishing it from there on out. In dominating fashion, Truex would lead 464 of the race’s 500 laps, if there was one driver that had at least a little something for the nineteen it would be William Byron.
It took two overtime restarts to get finished, but Denny Hamlin would manage to come through with a toughly fought win edging out Chase Elliot. Hamlin would get a nice assist from teammate Kyle Busch to get him the lead he needed in the final green white. Busch, Kurt Busch, William Byron, Martin Truex Jr, Eric Jones, Clint Bowyer, Harvick, and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top 10. Elliot manages to qualify for the round of eight after just managing to beat out Brad Keselowski by three points.
