The first two-time winner of the 2019 eNASCAR iRacing Pro Series season, Graham A. Bowlin had to do it from the back at Dover Int’l Speedway on Tuesday night after missing qualifying before the race.

“It’s kind of embarrassing, but I didn’t even sign up for the ‘Q’ session,” Bowlin told Podium eSports post race. “I was testing the race set, and then I just… it was like 7:38, the last time I checked the clock, and then just it was 7:45 all of a sudden, so I didn’t even sign up for the ‘Q’ sessions.

“I thought my race was over before it even started.”

Starting from the 37th starting position, Bowlin worked his way through the field, cracking the Top 5 for the first time just before halfway, at lap 68.

The Deadzone Racing phenom took the lead with 33 to go, and through the cautions and threats from Nathan Lyon and Ray Alfalla, Bowlin held it all together for his second win in a row, one week removed from his victory at Richmond Raceway last Tuesday.

The race was slowed 13 times for 51 laps, as the “self-cleaning” surface on the “Monster Mile” claimed all but seven drivers at one point or another with at least one “incident” point through the event.

Bob Bryant started on the pole position, but gave way to the Daytona winner, John Gorlinsky, at lap 12. Gorlinsky led the most laps on the day at 37, but was relegated to a 17th place finish after an incident on lap 61 tore up his rear end.

Now officially more than halfway done with the seven race season, Bowlin leads the series standings with three races to go. Bowlin has 26 point advantage over Bryant, who finished fourth at Dover. Gorlinsky and Lyon are tied for third, while Alfalla climbs up to fifth place in the points with his third place effort on Tuesday night.
