Power Rankings: PEAK iRacing Series heads to Las Vegas

After a wild season opener in Daytona, the eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series heads to the virtual Las Vegas Motor Speedway for race no. 2 on the 18-race calendar. Fresh off a win in his debut race for Roush Fenway Racing, Zack Novak will look to go back-to-back and extend his early championship lead while the likes of Ryan Luza and defending champion Ray Alfalla aim for their first win of 2019.

Here’s a look at where we rank the top iRacing competitors heading into Round 2:

12. Jimmy Mullis
Change: NR
Comment: Mullis came just one position — well, more like one foot — short of his second-career victory Tuesday at Daytona. He’ll have momentum on his side.

11. Nickolas Shelton
Change: +1
Comment: Despite a disappointing season opener, Shelton heads to a track where he finished third last year. Shelton hasn’t scored a top five since his win at Charlotte last May, but there’s no better place to turn around his luck than Vegas.

10. Logan Clampitt
Change: -3
Comment: After missing Daytona, Clampitt looks to get his season on track in Las Vegas, despite starting the year in the hole.

9. Christian Challiner
Change: —
Comment: Christian Challiner finished fifth at Daytona after starting 30th, so he clearly knows a thing or two about passing cars.

8. Nick Ottinger
Change: —
Comment: Ignoring when he’s run into issues, Nick Ottinger’s last four Las Vegas finishes have been 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th. A 13th-place wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world after a solid showing at Daytona.

7. Zack Novak
Change: NR
Comment: The Daytona winner heads to the desert, where he’s showed speed in the past, including scoring the pole position last year.

6. Matt Bussa
Change: —
Comment: The 2017 Las Vegas pole-sitter had an average showing at Daytona — but that consistency is what led to success in the 2018 postseason.

5. Bobby Zalenski
Change: —
Comment: Has anybody ever noticed the guy named Bobby is driving the No. 18 Interstate Batteries car for Joe Gibbs Racing?

4. Michael Conti
Change: -1
Comment: Las Vegas isn’t one of Conti’s best tracks, with a 20.14 average finish in seven starts.

3. Keegan Leahy
Change: +1
Comment: Keegan Leahy led 45 laps in his first Las Vegas outing last year until his untimely departure. Coming off a podium at Daytona, we expect Leahy will contend again in his sophomore season.

2. Ray Alfalla
Change: -1
Comment: Despite four top fives at Las Vegas, a win has eluded Four-Time in the desert.

1. Ryan Luza
Change: +1
Comment: Luza managed to avoid trouble at Daytona and score his career best finish — sixth — and now heads to a track where he’s undefeated. We see no reason Luza can’t go 3-for-3 in Vegas.

Race No. 2 from Las Vegas takes place Tuesday, February 26th at 9:00 pm ET, live on iRacing’s Twitch channel and right here on eNASCAR.com.
