The 14-race season is divided into three four-race segments, with one driver per platform (Xbox One and PlayStation 4) earning a spot in the championship race as well as a shot at the $200,000 prize pool. A final wild card event at the virtual Daytona International Speedway in July will allow for two more drivers to secure their Championship hopes.
Unlike last year, races won’t just be held using Cup Series cars. Three races will be held using Xfinity cars and three will use vehicles from the Truck Series, including a race at Eldora Speedway.
The series features 28 gamers from 14 teams, each owned and operated by NASCAR race teams. Each team fields two drivers, all competing for a shared championship.
After last season, all teams were required to clear one of their roster spots. Chip Ganassi Gaming, GoFas Gaming and Joe Gibbs Gaming each have two new drivers.
