Last season, the Pro Invitational Series debuted during the initial shutdown from the COVID-19 pandemic. Earnhardt was a regular participant in those races scoring a best finish in the first race, a runner-up finish at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Earnhardt has been a long time user and fan of iRacing. He joined the company last November as an executive director and was instrumental in the process of getting North Wilkesboro Speedway scanned for the service.
