James Davison Dominates eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Event on Streets of Chicago

PC: NASCAR | Twitter

James Davison and Rick Ware Racing totally destroyed the field (again) in Wednesday Night’s eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series event on the streets of Downtown Chicago, the first race of any kind on a street course in NASCAR – albeit on iRacing and not in real life.

The Australian bested Rick Ware Racing teammate Josh Bilicki by a gap of over 54 seconds, with Justin Haley, Garrett Smithley and Martin Truex Jr. rounding out the top-five. Timmy Hill, Matt DiBenedetto, Ross Chastain, Quin Houff and Joey Logano rounded out the top-10.

Davison led every single lap of the 51-lap event, which featured an immense amount of crashing and attrition, to the point where nearly half the field was unable to finish the event, due to the fact that they used both their resets early in the event.

In fact, iRacing expert William Byron, used his first of two quick repairs on the first lap of the race, although it wasn’t very quick as the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet spent the next 15 minutes on pit road. For Byron, the remainder of the event was spent trying to gain track position on cars who had retired from the event.

There were… a lot of incidents, which took out… a lot of drivers. Cole Custer, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Alex Bowman, Chase Elliott, Aric Almirola and many, many more retired because of incidents.
