Just seeing racing of any kind is enough of an excuse that you need to tune into Sunday’s iRacing eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series event at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway at 1:30 PM ET on FS1, but Denny Hamlin is giving us more of a reason to tune in.
On Friday, Hamlin Tweeted that he will donate $100 for every lap he leads in the event to COVID-19 relief for families in the Homestead-Miami area as well as $5,000 if he goes on to win the race.
During Sunday’s iRacing event, I’m pledging $100 for each lap I lead and $5000 if I win the race to benefit families affected by COVID-19 in the Homestead-Miami area. @NASCAR_FDN @feedthechildren.

Hamlin then, urged his fellow competitors to do the same.
Sunday’s race will feature a 35-car field, and will pit real life NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Truck Series drivers with spotters and potentially others in the industry.
