The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series has allowed the NASCAR drivers to flex their iRacing rigs staying comfortable at their home.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the suspension of racing events, the virtual racing event has provided fans something to cherish with and NASCAR drivers to simulate the driving experience with their iRacing rigs.
Two events have been organized so far. The first race was held at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway. Denny Hamlin won the race while the second race at the virtual Texas Motor Speedway was won by Timmy Hill.
Virtual Bristol Motor Speedway will host the third race of the series on Sunday, April 5.
Let’s take a look at different iRacing gigs used by the drivers:

During Sunday’s iRacing event, I’m pledging $100 for each lap I lead and $5000 if I win the race to benefit families affected by COVID-19 in the Homestead-Miami area. @NASCAR_FDN @feedthechildren.
