Enascar Test Day 2019 Cookson Novak

Wide World of Esports: eNASCAR champs get a test day, Gander Trucks drivers on iRacing, and a new laser scanner

Education by Iwuji

You never know who you’ll find out there – maybe even NASCAR Gander Trucks driver Jesse Iwuji.

Rhodes is ready

It’s the NASCAR off-season. Even stick-figure Ben Rhodes is ready to race iRacing over the winter before climbing back in his truck.

Whose set-up is better: Ben Rhodes’ or Anthony Alfredo’s?

Champs hit the track

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!

Rajah Caruth on Cheddar Esports

Avid iRacer and 2020 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Program member Rajah Caruth spoke with Cheddar Esports about how iRacing prepares him for real-world racing opportunities. The 17-year-old from Washington, D.C. will compete in NASCAR late models in 2020.

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.

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.

There are some things that should be left to the sim world. Doing donuts around the campgrounds is probably one of those.
