If you’ve been enjoying the big-time iRacing events that have been happening since the NASCAR season ended in November, you’ll love what Idk Player has in store for you on Friday.
The YouTuber, who is known for his past NR Night in America broadcasts, will be putting on an all-star event called The World 600, which will be available for streaming from his YouTube channel. But before you confuse this race traditional real-world World 600 (Now known as the Coca-Cola 600), this race will not be 600-miles and it will not be contested at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The 600 stands for the $600 payout that the winner will receive and the race will take place at the virtual Daytona International Speedway, the World Center of Racing, hence the World portion of the race title.
The broadcast will begin at 8:00 PM ET on Friday, December 17th. The festivities will begin with “The Open” which is a 25-lap chance for any driver, not locked into the show, to work their way into the star-studded field.
11 drivers from The Open will join the 36 driver field for the World 600.
The World 600 Main Event will be a 160 lap contest, and is expected to start approximately at 9:30 PM ET. In the Main Event, drivers will have three fast repairs, which will need to be used wisely as there will more than likely be an action packed 160 laps on Friday night.
So, who is locked into the big show on Friday?
Well, for fans of the Monday Night Racing Rowdy Energy Pro Series, there will certainly be some familiar names as NASCAR Xfinity Series competitor Ryan Vargas will be in the field along with Ford Martin, Matt Stallknecht and Seth Eggert.
Other familiar names to outsiders of eSports would include Darian Gilliam, or Black Flags Matter as he’s known on YouTube and Dale Tanhardt of Garage Guys Fantasy Sports (You’ve seen their work here on TobyChristie.com).
Other Drivers Locked In
Timothy J Moore, Jaiden Reyna, Michael Kouremetis, Alex Krahnke, Mason Moriarty, Gary Owen, Max Swarringin, Joseph Armstrong, Tyrrell Baker, David Joiner, David Cabrera, Brett Punkari, Braden Muhvic (three-time NR Night in America Champion), Tyler Tinsley, Douglas Newbigging, Kyler Wynn, Daniel Mosteller and Matt Deason.
