Watching William Byron’s impressive drive to win Stage 1 of Saturday night’s Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Open seems to have inspired everybody’s favorite Twitter character @nascarcasm to follow in Byron’s footsteps and hop onto iRacing.

Maybe if everybody pesters him, he’ll actually join — just think of the antics that might follow. Let’s keep him honest and ensure he follows through on his promise.

Paint Scheme of the Week

Ben Horton created Jimmie Johnson’s camo-covered Coca-Cola 600 ride for iRacing — though, if somebody hits you on the track when you’re racing this car, the other driver is totally justified in saying they didn’t see you.

Jimmie Johnson will run the camo-covered paint scheme in Sunday's Coca-Cola 600.
