Leave a comment

Logan Seavey overcame an early incident and passed Chase Cabre for the lead with 13 laps to go in the 150-lap race to win the Saturday Night Thunder iRacing event at a virtual Bristol Motor Speedway.

The race was run with ARCA Menards Series cars. The event was open to NASCAR Xfinity Series, Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, NASCAR Peak Mexico Series, Pinty’s Series, Whelen Euro Series and ARCA Menards Series drivers.

Seavey, who plans to run a full-time USAC sprint car and midget schedule while looking for a NASCAR ride, advanced to the feature by finishing second in his heat race.

Cabre, who will run a full ARCA Menards Series schedule when racing returns, finished second. Alex Labbe, a driver in the Pinty’s Series, was third. Anthony Alfredo finished fourth. Kyle Weatherman completed the top five.

The event featured three heat races that transferred four drivers each to the feature. The two last chance qualifying races transferred six drivers each to the feature.

Two drivers who advanced through the last chance qualifying race finished in the top 10 in the feature. Joey Gase was ninth in the feature. Jeb Burton placed 10th in the feature.
