Denny Hamling Racing 2020 Lineup Iracing

Livin’ large: iRacing drivers hang with Dale Jr., Denny Hamlin

With the 2020 class of eNASCAR iRacing World Championship Series drivers in Charlotte for Media Day last week, many of the longtime competitors took the opportunity to spend some time together before heading their separate ways.

While hanging out following Media Day obligations at the home of Richmond Raceway Esports driver Jimmy Mullis, the drivers received an unexpected invitation from 2019 NASCAR Cup Series championship finalist and newly-minted iRacing team owner Denny Hamlin – a simple tweet: "y’all come by the house."

And come by the house they did.

The crew of drivers hung with Hamlin, shooting hoops, telling stories, and even knocking down some bowling pins. Yes, apparently Denny Hamlin’s place has a bowling alley, not far from his Daytona 500-winning car – some flex on another level.

Ankles were broken.

As if Media Day and hanging out with Denny Hamlin didn’t already make for a memorable enough weekend, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and spotter TJ Majors (who also apparently paired to make an iRacing endurance team) made some time to visit the iRacers still in town.

It’s not every day you get to kick it with NASCAR stars, but it’s a perk of sim racing at the highest level.
