William Byron was dominant in Sunday’s iRacing eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series event at the virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, as he led 116 of 150 laps on the day. Despite numerous cautions catching the field up to him all race long, Byron cruised to his 318th-career victory on iRacing.

Following Byron to the finish line we’re John Hunter Nemechek in Front Row Motorsports’ No. 38 machine and Timmy Hill was third in the No. 66 MBM Motorsports Toyota.

This marks Hill’s third-consecutive top-three finish in the Pro Invitational Series.

Denny Hamlin rebounded from an early crash to finish fourth and Matt DiBenedetto rounded out the top-five finishers in the race.

Ryan Preece, Parker Kligerman, Tyler Reddick, Garrett Smithley and Michael McDowell finishes sixth thru 10th.

The race was plagued by crashes, but it was also mired by a spat between Daniel Suarez and Kyle Larson. The altercation on track led to the two drivers crashing each other numerous times under caution, which led to iRacing disqualifying both drivers. This is the second week in a row that Suarez has been parked early.
