Fresh off a pair of top-10 finishes in the eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series, Burton Kligerman Esports drivers Logan Clampitt and Ashton Crowder visited the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval and hung out with team owner Parker Kligerman, who also competed in Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.

PEAK iRacing Series: Zalenski dominates Charlotte Roval; Championship 4 set

Finding himself in a must-win situation heading into the Charlotte Roval, Joe Gibbs Racing driver Bobby Zalenski executed one of the most clutch performances in eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series history Tuesday. Zalenski, a skilled road racer, was mired dead-last in playoff standings with one last shot at making the Championship 4, and managed to lead every single lap after starting from pole position, assuring he’ll compete for his share of more than $100,000 in prizes awarded in the championship race October 10.

In addition to Zalenski, Keegan Leahy (G2 Esports), Zack Novak (Roush Fenway Racing) and Blake Reynolds (Team Dillon Esports) make up the Championship 4, guaranteeing a first-time series champion. The highest-finishing driver of the four at Homestead-Miami Speedway will earn the title of PEAK iRacing Series champion.

The champ will be crowned live on NBCSN October 10 at 5 p.m. ET.

Heat Pro League: New winners at Kansas; two more teams eliminated

In the eNASCAR Heat Pro League at Kansas Speedway Wednesday, the eight remaining teams fought and clawed to avoid playoff elimination.

JRM Dohar88 took the checkered flag — the first of his career — on Xbox, keeping JR Motorsports’ playoff hopes alive. Ganassi Gaming’s Parker8171 brought home his first-ever win on PlayStation 4, though the victory came a bit too late for the team, already eliminated earlier in the season.

Both winners scored the first-ever wins for their respective teams in the Heat Pro League.

On the championship side, Kansas marked the end of the road for GoFas Gaming and Wood Brothers Gaming.

The last chance for teams to make the top four will come October 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET on eNASCAR.com from Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Paint Scheme of the Week

Anthony Mahone painted a NASCAR Xfinity Series-style Toyota Supra for iRacing based off Christopher Bell’s Chili Bowl helmet — a cool concept that transfers quite nicely to a stock car.
