iRacing – the world’s premier motorsports simulator — will sponsor Josh Berry and JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ return to Nashville Superspeedway on June 19th, the organization announced on Thursday. The primary sponsorship continues a decade-long partnership between Berry and iRacing, as the pair have been partnering across the Late Model divisions since 2010.
“It’s great to have iRacing come on board and for us to be running this awesome scheme in Nashville,” said Berry. “They’ve been a great partner to work with over these last years and it means a lot to me to be able to continue this on to the NASCAR Xfinity Series level.”
The design for the No. 8 iRacing Camaro also carries a significance, turning back the clock to 2003, the familiar red, white and blue iRacing colors reflect a modern adaptation of that driven by the fictional Fred Jones in the original NASCAR Racing 2003 Season PC simulation. The popular sim has been credited as one of the inspirations behind the creation of iRacing in 2008, and still lives on in various forms 18 years later.
