FOX Sports announced Tuesday that the remainder of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series season will be simulcast on FOX broadcast networks, FS1 and the FOX Sports Go app.
The move comes as a result of a relative ratings success for last Sunday’s inaugural eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series race run at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The race saw Denny Hamlin narrowly beat out Dale Earnhardt Jr. in a close last-lap battle and drew 900,000 viewers, even with the broadcast being announced just three days prior.
Mike Joy, Larry McReynolds and Jeff Gordon will call Sunday’s race with Clint Bowyer doing in-car commentary.
Continuing the theme of the series being run in lieu of the regular NASCAR Cup races, the series will run at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday and feature drivers from the top three NASCAR series. All three series were set to race at Texas this weekend prior to all races being postponed until early-May.
Race coverage will start at 1pm EST. The race will be broadcast on FOX, FS1, the FOX Sports Go app and FOX Sports Racing for Canadian viewers.
