Gentlemen, start your simulators!
With NASCAR on hold until May 17, along with canceled everything else
To slow down the spread of the professional stock car drivers have traded their souped-up vehicles for souped-up simulators to compete in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series. NASCAR follows its previous racing schedule, but instead of real cars racing over real circuits, it has become virtual with the help of the iRacing simulator. The races may be simulations, but the drivers are still real.
Not only current NASCAR drivers participate, but also retired legends like Dale Earnhardt Jr. are back behind the wheel. Denny Hamlin won the checkered flag in the first virtual race last month, passing Earnhardt Jr. during the final turn on the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway. With regular announcers calling the race ̵
The race drew such a large audience on FS1 that Fox has decided to broadcast virtual races through May 10. Here is the schedule for the upcoming races in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series. They start on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET (10am PT) on Fox, FS1 and the Fox Sports app.
- May 3: Dover International Speedway
- May 10: Martinsville Speedway
NASCAR has also added a racing series I call Saturday Night Thunder. It will be shown live on eNASCAR.com Saturday night and features non-NASCAR drivers behind the wheel of simulated ARCA Menards Series cars competing in multi-heat short track races ahead of a main event.
