Newly-crowned eNASCAR champions Zack Novak and Max Cookson got the opportunity to wheel a late model (a real one) around Myrtle Beach Speedway.
Talk about perks!

New scanning technology at iRacing
We can only imagine how much fun the iRacing crew is having with their new handheld laser scanner, designed to accurately grab data from objects smaller than, well, a race car.
Grocery store hand-scanner noises not included.
We?re leveling up how we do our scanning! With this new hand-held tool we?ll be able to more accurately scan and get 3D images of the cars we bring to the iRacing service! pic.twitter.com/I75SKrUZvm

We continue to invest into improving @iRacing. Adding this new 3D scanner into our car scanning process will produce car scans that are more accurate and in a more artist-ready format. Plus @KIannarelli27 and I will have a lot of fun using it!#laserscan #SimRacing #iracing pic.twitter.com/25qbBxCGuf

John Gorlinsky back in Victory Lane
Sim racing veteran John Gorlinsky claimed his second season victory in the 2019 iRacing Pro Series with a win at Charlotte Motor Speedway, boosting his bid to join the premier eNASCAR iRacing Series in 2020.
What looked like a race in the grasp of Nathan Lyon fell to Gorlinsky in the closing laps as cautions – as they say – bred cautions.
The iRacing Pro Series returns at Darlington December 10.
iRacing paint scheme of the week
Even though it hasn’t hit the real track yet, Justin T. painted Ryan Blaney’s brand-new Advance Auto Parts Ford Mustang for the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season for iRacing.
Video of the week
There are some things that should be left to the sim world. Doing donuts around the campgrounds is probably one of those.
