  • [IGN] Fox to Broadcast Virtual NASCAR Races Using Real Drivers

    Fox and NASCAR held a test lap of sorts on March 22 with its eNASCAR iRacing Pro Series Invitational opener and after its success, Fox has decided to air the remainder of the virtual season on its channels.

    NASCAR racers like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Bobby Labonte headlined Sunday's eNASCAR race that drew in over 900,000 viewers. Sunday's race was the most talked-about TV program that day on Twitter, according to NASCAR. Three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin took home the win, but he and other racers will now be competing online for the remainder of the season in the PC game, iRacing.

    This is pretty neat, I'm not sure if the entirety of NASCAR this year has been cancelled or if they've just cancelled some races but I do like the replacement. A lot of NASCAR drivers already play iRacing so I don't see why not carry on this way until they're able to go back to racing cars in real life.
