How they got here
ISM Raceway — the real race track in Arizona — marked the beginning of the eNASCAR Heat Pro League, where a pre-season draft was held for team driver selection back in March. Now, the virtual ISM Raceway determines which team earns the crown.
The 14 teams of the Heat Pro League started their season at Charlotte Motor Speedway in a live event in May. Throughout the summer months, drivers battled it out to make the playoffs — and then survived a three-race series of eliminations at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Now, with just four teams remaining in contention, the winning team with the highest combined point total at the ISM Raceway finale will take home the title of inaugural eNASCAR Heat Pro League champion.
There are two races for two consoles: NASCAR Heat 4 for PlayStation 4 first at 8:00 p.m. ET, then Xbox One following.
ISM Raceway (1-mile oval)
No stage breaks
No competition cautions
On PlayStation 4, SHG Slick 14x of Stewart Haas Gaming will start pole position, while Team Penske Esports racer Pennzoil2 (Brian Tedeschi) rolls off first on Xbox One.
Each of the 14 teams — four of which remain in championship contention — fields two drivers, one for each console. Points are scored by combined team total following the end of both races.
All 28 players are racing live in Arena 43 at NASCAR Plaza in Charlotte, NC.
