2019 highlights

By any standards, Garrett Lowe impressed as a rookie in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series, making the playoffs and winning at Michigan with Team Renegades – not to mention coming close to victory several times prior. He’ll move to the Wood Brothers to team up with Chris Overland, who finished second – barely – to Lowe in that same Michigan race. The Wood Brothers’ overall-first draft pick of Ray Alfalla resulted in a bust nobody could have predicted: the four-time champ went winless for the first time in series history, and had more flips than top-five finishes.

2020 outlook

The Wood Brothers duo will make for an interesting matchup: an experienced veteran of 110 starts teams with a series sophomore. (We’re going to dub it “Loweverland.”) Chris Overland is still searching for his first-career win, believe it or not, but perhaps his time is coming. Garrett Lowe enters the season following a tremendous rookie year where he nearly made the Championship 4. We expect another year of experience under Lowe’s belt will make the No. 21 a contender.
