AA’s Stream to Class A

Gander Outdoors Truck Series driver Anthony Alfredo has had a busy time climbing to iRacing’s Class A license level, streaming his journey on Twitch along the way.

On Monday, Alfredo finally reached his goal.

What’s next? How about a run to the Pro Series?

Conti Welcomed Back to Work

Michael Conti, JR Motorsports PEAK iRacing Series racer by night and business development supervisor for Hendrick Automotive Group by day, was given a warm welcome back to work by co-workers last week.

Conti lost his mother, Gina, to cancer August 15. The eNASCAR community rallied around the 22-year-old driver and his family using the hashtag #GinaStrong, which even made its way to Conti’s PEAK iRacing Series race car.

Conti went on to win the pole at Darlington in the #GinaStrong Chevrolet and nearly pulled off a victory on Thursday’s NBCSN-televised iRacing All-Star Race.

Ringers Welcome

Well, this isn’t fair. PEAK iRacing Series driver Casey Kirwan showed up to NASCAR weekend at Darlington Raceway, taking some time to turn some laps in a SimSeats iRacing hotlap competition.

Naturally, the iRacing expert bested everybody’s lap times — including the lap set by Alfredo.

Team owner Clint Bowyer would be proud of his young driver and Bristol winner.

Novak Outduels Conti on NBCSN iRacing Broadcast

Roush Fenway Racing’s Zack Novak held off a hard-charging Michael Conti from JR Motorsports Thursday on NBCSN’s broadcast of the second eNASCAR iRacing All-Star Race that featured PEAK iRacing Series stars as well as racer and NBCSN analyst Parker Kligerman. The drivers raced at Rockingham Speedway — something Cup Series-style cars haven’t done in 15 years.

Thursday’s race marked the second side-by-side finish in as many nationally televised events, following Nick Ottinger’s victory over Ryan Luza at Iowa Speedway in July.

PEAK iRacing Series: Crowder Conquers Darlington

Burton-Kligerman Esports rookie Ashton Crowder scored his first eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series victory Tuesday at Darlington, playing spoiler to the eight playoff drivers that hoped to lock into the championship finale with a win.

The win was just Crowder’s second series top-10 finish, coming off the heels of an eighth-place finish at Bristol. Crowder moves up to 21st in points, one position shy of a guaranteed spot in next year’s PEAK iRacing Series field.

It was the first playoff race not won by Parker Retzlaff, considered by many as the favorite for the title.
