As the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series continues its popularity in absence of reality racing, there will be a few changes for the iRacing event this weekend in Bristol, Tennessee.
Like the real NASCAR, there will be two races this weekend in Bristol – the Food City Showdown and Saturday Night Thunder.
The Food City Showdown will feature NASCAR Cup Series drivers, both past and present. The running order for the race will be determined by two heat races with all the drivers participating in the race.
The Saturday Night Thunder event will use the ARCA Menards Series cars and feature drivers from the Xfinity, Gander RV and Outdoors Truck, ARCA, the PEAK Mexico, and the Whelen Euro Series. Following a typical Saturday night short track racing event, the night will begin with heat races before the main event takes place.
While the Food City Showdown race will air on the FOX sports network, the Saturday Night Thunder event will be streamed live on eNASCAR.com.
