CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Nobody did anything to get fired or lose a sponsor in this week's edition of NASCAR virtual racing.
William Byron won his second consecutive NASCAR virtual race yesterday by holding off Timmy Hill—the driver who moved him out of the way to win an earlier iRacing event—in a race low on dramatics.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—A second straight victory in virtual racing for Simon Pagenaud and Team Penske, and tempers were hot at the end of this one.
Pagenaud, the reigning Indianapolis 500 winner, competed in his firesuit and captured IndyCar's race Saturday on a simulated Twin Ring Motegi in Japan. A frantic final 10 laps decided the iRacing event.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Kyle Larson was fired today by Chip Ganassi Racing, a day after nearly every one of his sponsors dropped the star driver for using a racial slur during a live stream of a virtual race.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—NASCAR star Kyle Larson used a racial slur on a live stream during a virtual race—the second driver in a week to draw scrutiny while using the online racing platform to fill time during the coronavirus pandemic.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—William Byron led the most laps in NASCAR's first two virtual races and had nothing to show for his gaming skills. The third time out, he got the win.
Byron easily won the iRacing event yesterday at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, where NASCAR would have been really racing before the coronavirus pandemic caused sports to shut down.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead sang the national anthem from a remote location. Troy Aikman, borrowing Matthew McConaughey's trademark phrase “All right, all right, all right,” commanded drivers to start their, uh, simulators.
MARTINSVILLE, Va.—Brad Keselowski gave Team Penske and the new Ford Mustang its third Cup victory through the first six races of the season by routing the field at Martinsville Speedway yesterday.
HOMESTEAD, Fla.—Joey Logano raced into NASCAR anointed as its next star.
He was 18, dubbed “Sliced Bread” because of all the hype, and in way over his head.
It made Logano an easy target on and off the track, and threatened his career. Logano was out of a job five years after he arrived but given a second chance by Roger Penske, the titans of motorsports.
AVONDALE, Ariz.—The three most dominant drivers of this NASCAR season fittingly will race each other for the championship—a chance for Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Martin Truex Jr. to settle which team truly is the best.
It was Busch who claimed the latest round, winning for the eighth time this year yesterday to tie Harvick for the most Cup victories.
