Wednesday: iRacing Happy Hour at the Daytona Road Course
While NASCAR won’t officially hold any formal practice sessions prior to this weekend’s races at the Daytona Road Course, three drivers will participate in a virtual Happy Hour session Wednesday night.
William Byron, Chase Briscoe, and Ty Majeski will represent their respective series and work to set fast lap times in order to win a few fun prizes – and bragging rights, of course.

iRacing paint scheme of the week
Like bright colors? Erik Le imagined a fictional Gordon-esque paint scheme from the "Rainbow Warriors" era on the iRacing Gander Trucks Chevrolet Silverado. We sure wouldn’t mind seeing this one hit the real track.
