Meanwhile, Ty Majeski did Ty Majeski things, confirming the realism of his only Richmond Raceway experience — on iRacing, of course.

NASCAR Xfinity Series standout Christopher Bell isn’t shy about his use of iRacing, and he confirmed on Twitter he uses it as a tool to practice — even on dirt.

But Bell is really good, even at iRacing, where he boasts a 5700 iRating. (That’s quite high.)

Greg Hill, iRacing’s VP of Art and Production, shared a video teaser of new cloud and weather effects in the iRacing sim, showing signs of tremendous progress on highly anticipated dynamic weather features. Quite a treat for iRacing’s 10th birthday.

The eNASCAR Ignite Series — 50 of racing’s brightest future stars competing for a $10,000 racing scholarship — held its second race of the playoffs on Aug. 29. Garrett Lowe went back-to-back, picking up the checkered flag at iRacing’s virtual Irwindale Speedway.


NASCAR PEAK ANTIFREEZE iRACING SERIES UPDATE

The playoffs for the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series kicked off Tuesday at Darlington Raceway. Michael Conti scored his first victory of 2018, and at the perfect time. His win locks him into the championship finale on Oct. 23 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Maybe his Jimmie Johnson-esque throwback paint scheme made the difference Tuesday.

 

iRACING PAINT SCHEMES OF THE WEEK

William Long brought Gary Bradberry’s 1998 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series ride to a modern-day iRacing Ford Fusion. It looks great for aging 20 years.

Doug DeNise created Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s Darlington-raced John Deere throwback for iRacing.

 

VIDEO OF THE WEEK

This week, iRacing will release the long-awaited Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 race car, laser-scanned to perfection. iRacing’s teaser video confirms the car looks as good as it does on the real race track.
