Stewart-Haas Gaming made history in the regular season finale Wednesday night, becoming the first eNASCAR Heat Pro League team to sweep both Xbox One and PlayStation4 races in the same night.
While a handful of teams were working hard to race their way into the inaugural playoffs, Stewart-Haas Gaming drivers SHGSlick14x and SHG_HotRod_14p dominated their respective races at Daytona International Speedway. But for other teams, the night did not go according to plan.
In the PlayStation4 division RCR Esports driver Joey Stone (Sloppy_Joe_YT) finished fourth to set his team up for a possible event win only to see his teammate Jordan McGraw (TheJMacAttack34) have problems in the Xbox One division event finishing 14th ending their chance of advancing into the playoffs.
Petty Esports enjoyed their best overall team performance of the season after Diego Alvarado (diego dd18) and Mike Braas (MikeRPM43) each finished fifth in their races, but they still fell short of finishing in the top 10 in the final standings.
Hendrick Motorsports Gaming Club and Chip Ganassi Gaming also finished out of the top 10 and failed to qualify for the postseason. All four teams can still compete for race and event wins but will not be eligible for the championship.
SHG_HotRod_14p picked up his third win of the year in the PlayStation4 division was followed by Cody Giles (xX_Fluffy_Xx2), TJ McGowan (Voltage20_), Stone (Sloppy_Joe_YT) and Braas (MikeRPM43) to complete the top five.
SHGSlick14x led the way in the action-packed Xbox One race holding off Tyler Dohar (JRMDohar88) to pick up his second win of the season. Brian Tedeschi (ShellVPower22) finished third to help Team Penske Esports clinch the regular season championship. Nick Vromin (HDMotorsports95) and Alvarado (diego dd18) rounded out the top five.
Despite the strong night for Stewart-Haas Gaming at Daytona Team Penske Esports was able to hold them off and take the regular season title by one point with Roush Fenway Gaming in third.
JR Motorsports finished fourth with Leavine Family Gaming rounding out the top five in the final standings.
The regular season finale was also the final race of the season for the drivers using NASCAR Heat 3, as competitors will make the leap to the all-new NASCAR Heat 4 game, launching September 13th.
