On Tuesday, FOX Sports announces that they will officially carry the remainder of the iRacing eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series on the FOX network (where available) as well as FS1 and the FOX Sports Go app.
The race will also be shown on FOX Sports Racing in Canada.
This weekend’s event will take place on the virtual Texas Motor Speedway, and will take place on Sunday at 1:00 PM ET.
Last week’s event at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway recorded a 0.53 rating on FS1 and reached more than 900,000 viewers. The race marked the highest-watched eSports event in American television history.
With this weekend’s race being carried on network TV, that record should fall again this weekend.
Mike Joy, Jeff Gordon and Larry McReynolds will continue to commentate the virtual races as they did this past week.
