It was wild. It was chaotic. It was …

It was Talladega.

Real or virtual, the racing at Talladega Superspeedway can be exciting and breathtaking.

Sunday’s GEICO 70 Pro Invitational Series iRacing event at a virtual Talladega had plenty of action.

Alex Bowman won the race, which saw Jeff Gordon’s spectacular accident in his series debut. Corey LaJoie finished second in his series debut after last-lap contact with Ty Dillon.

Here’s a look at some of the action from the event:
