eNASCAR Ignite Series
The eNASCAR Ignite Series was created to provide young aspiring racers a platform where their talents could be showcased and help launch or further their racing careers. NASCAR’s youth esports series establishes a legitimate entry point into real-world racing, providing competitors with an unparalleled simulation experience on iRacing.
The series, open to gamers ages 13-16, begins with eight weeks of qualifying rounds in US Legends cars competing at virtual renderings of tracks across the country. Charlotte Motor Speedway will host the first qualifying round on June 12, while New Smyrna Speedway will host the final qualifying event on July 31.
The top 50 drivers after the qualifying rounds will be invited to the playoffs, which begin on August 7 at Richmond International Raceway. For the first time ever, playoff eligible drivers will move up to iRacing’s newly-created NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour cars to compete for the 2019 championship.
This year’s eNASCAR Ignite Series champion will receive a prize package that includes a real-world test day in both a NASCAR Pinty’s Series car with Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) and a US Legend Car vehicle, which could lead to more real-world racing experience, as well as additional prizes.
