The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series is getting a new look for this weekend’s events at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, providing a different spin for a series that has been popular during its debut the past two weekends on FOX and FS1. Airtime is 1pm.
Instead of normal timed qualifing – the lineup for Sunday’s main event, the Food City Showdown, will be set after two heat races. Everyone in the heat races will transfer to the main event.
A new Saturday night show that uses ARCA Menards Series cars and includes drivers from the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, ARCA, the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. It will be streamed at eNASCAR.com
Meanwhile, the additional Saturday event, Saturday Night Thunder will feature a format familiar to short-track fans with multiple heat races leading up to a main event. None of Saturday’s racers will transfer to Sunday’s event, but it’s a way to provide additional esports action during a time when NASCAR regulars are away from the track because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
