Another Day at the Office
Newly crowned eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series champ Zack Novak visited iRacing headquarters as part of his victory lap. According to iRacing’s tweet, Zack also tried out some new content, so we fully expect Dale Earnhardt Jr. to ask him how North Wilkesboro is coming along.
The Champ is here! 🏆@znovak15 stopped by the office to celebrate his championship season, try out some upcoming content, and talk about what it means to win $40,000 at 17 years old. pic.twitter.com/G6DKRgWCuf

Novak also stopped by Reddit for an AMA.
Sunoco’s eWorld vs. Real World Challenge
What happens when Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series star Bubba Wallace faces off against eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series drivers Malik Ray and Jimmy Mullis?
This was a cool deal. @SunocoRacing gave us the chance to settle the whole “iRacing vs real racing” debate. I didn’t think it’d be close, but @jmullisracing and @MalikRay90 put up a fight! Check out the video for the whole scoop.

iRacing Pro Series Begins
The final step in the ladder to the eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series begins tonight in a seven-race series that will promote 20 drivers to the 2020 class of iRacing’s highest level of oval racing.
While the top 20 points finishers in the 2019 PEAK iRacing Series are guaranteed a seat in the 2020 field, the bottom 20 must compete against 20 up-and-coming drivers. The top half after the seven-race Pro Series gets promoted, and the bottom half — well, they don’t.
Four-time PEAK iRacing Series champ Ray Alfalla, who missed last year’s cutoff by just two points, will compete in the Pro Series for the first time in nine years.
It’s been 9 years since I ran in the Pro Series, but tomorrow I make my return 😬. The season is only 7 races, and we kick it off @DISupdates. Let’s get this VRS #2 back in the World Championship!
