NASCAR is in for a double treat in 2020. Already, the sport’s announcement of its return to on-track competition in mid-May is leaving the drivers, the teams and the fans excited amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
For the third time in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series, William Byron made his way to victory lane in the Finish Line 150 at Virtual Dover International Speedway in his No. 24 Axalta/Voltatex Chevrolet. The victory is his fifth top-10 finish in six races in the series.
Despite being on the front row for the final round of the IndyCar Challenge, Team Penske driver Scott McLaughlin wasn't really in contention until late in the race. In fact, McLaughlin had to dodge a couple of wrecks that involved the leaders on the last lap to score the win in the First Responder 175.
Richard Childress Racing is no stranger to Victory Lane at Dover International Speedway, with four NASCAR Cup Series wins and three NASCAR Xfinity Series wins at the track affectionately known as The Monster Mile. This weekend marks a new chapter for RCR at Dover, with the organization's first attempt at the track in a virtual race.
While NASCAR’s on-track activity has been postponed through the weekend of May 3rd to align with CDC guidance, drivers and fans are turning to the virtual world to see some of the best racing competition around.
