Iracing Media Day 2020

eNASCAR iRacing Series drivers take on Charlotte for Media Day


The 2020 class of eNASCAR iRacing World Championship Series drivers paid a visit to Charlotte for their own version of Media Day, not much unlike what NASCAR Cup Series drivers experience before racing season begins.

For many of the 40 sim racers, it was the first time meeting their competitors in person.

Festivities kicked off Thursday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Alongside NASCAR Productions, the esports stars recorded video clips for race broadcast media use throughout the season, showing off those acting skills.

Oh, and a green screen? Somebody please inform @nascarcasm.

Drivers also recorded some video interview segments – maybe they’ll show up in 2020 race broadcasts. (I mean, if we had to guess.)

And what would Media Day be without a little bit of media training? These drivers have made the big time now – gotta make sure the ol’ image is fan- and sponsor-ready!

Of course, when in Rome (well, Charlotte), you’ve got to have a talk with the competition department – race director Jusan Hamilton, that is. No funny business, fellas.

The drivers took some time to enjoy the Queen City, mainly from the bird’s eye view high atop NASCAR Plaza.

Then, afterwards, the drivers stopped by nearby GoPro Motorplex to race head-to-head, kart-style.

The action continued into Friday.

… of course, until it was playtime again.

Even NASCAR Cup Series star and new iRacing team owner Denny Hamlin got in on the action. Whoa.

No big deal. Just a bunch of sim racers bowling at Denny Hamlin’s place.

All in all, Media Day made for some unforgettable memories – and plenty of excitement to kick off the 2020 eNASCAR iRacing World Championship Series season.
