A highlight of Racing Week in America on NBCSN is the NBC eSports Short Track iRacing Challenge, which debuts at 7 p.m. ET Monday.
From Monday-Wednesday, six different drivers will compete in two timed races in Cup Series cars at an iconic track at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. The top two finishers from each night will advance to the championship race Thursday at the virtual Martinsville Speedway on NBCSN.
Monday night’s races will be at a virtual Rockingham Speedway and can be streamed here.
Tuesday night’s races will be at a virtual Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis.
Wednesday night’s races will be at a virtual Myrtle Beach Speedway.
Thursday night’s championship race will be at a virtual Martinsville Speedway.
Here is the driver lineup for each night:
One of the fun items about virtual racing is that the drivers get to talk to each other throughout the event and talk a little trash.
“One of the things that the NBC element will have is more conversations among the drivers,” Earnhardt said. “We’re communicating as we’re racing.”
Said Kligerman: “You add in the talk among the drivers and it’s always funny. … We’re a chatty bunch if you give us the option. I think that’s going to very entertaining.”
