Racer Matt DiBenedetto had one longtime dream fulfilled during the second event of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series which was held at a virtual Texas Motor Speedway.
The second race was held on Sunday, as NASCAR continues to entertain the fans with the virtual racing event while all the real-life racing events are suspended until May. Matt DiBenedetto was one of the racers for the iRacing event. The event not only served as another race for DiBenedetto but an opportunity to fulfill his lifelong dream, which is racing in his underwear.
He posted a tweet before the event with a picture of him in his underwear.
I’ve always dreamt of racing in my underwear. Today I get to do that at 1:00 ET on Fox, FS1, and the Fox Sports app pic.twitter.com/KaQllx1aE4

Staying at home to race in his console has allowed the racer to do so. He finished the race in 15th position, having started it in 16th place. He finished the first race at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway in the 11th position. Having finished at 15th or better position, he is one of the 8 other drivers to do so in the two races.
The third race on the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series will be held at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway on Sunday, April 5.
