After both drivers finished outside the Top 10 in the season opener, GoFasGaming’s Hunter Mullins (FasFed32) and Roush Fenway Gaming’s Nick Walker (wowTHATSgarbage) rebounded to capture their first victories of the 2019 eNASCAR Heat Pro League season.
Just three days after the opening race at Charlotte, all 28 drivers returned to action Wednesday night for Round 2 at Auto Club Speedway. PlayStation 4 drivers took to the track first, with Mullins showing his prowess. The GoFasGaming driver was dealt a challenge late from Team Penske Esports’ Corey Rothgeb (Pennzoil2) and Leavine Family Gaming driver Josh Harbin (ThAbEar_95), but kept the two at bay to score the win.
“I was loose as hell to be honest,” Mullins said after the race. “I was just trying to keep the car straight to get back to the checkered flag.”
Wood Brothers Gaming driver Slade Gravitt, who won the season opener, was collected in a late accident and finished 12th.
In the Xbox race, Walker worked his way up through the field and held off a strong challenge from JR Motorsport driver Tyler Dohar (JRM Dohar88), who finished in the runner-up position for the second straight race to start the season. Leavine Family Racing’s Nick Vroman (HD Motorsports_95) rebounded to finish third for his first top-five finish of the young season.
Team Penske Esports driver Brian Tedeschi (ShellVPower22) wasn’t able to make it two wins in a row in the Xbox division as he was also collected in some on-track contact late in the race, resulting in a seventh-place finish.
Penske maintains the overall lead in the points standings on 151 points, while Leavine Family Gaming is second just six points back.
