Is there any other way to stop William Byron other than wrecking him?
The Hendrick Motorsports driver had another dominant afternoon at Bristol, but this time was able to close it out for his first win. Byron led a race-high 116 laps from the pole.
The young star got his first steps into the racing world on iRacing, and his experience on the simulator clearly shows it. Byron is clearly the man to beat.
Byron has six career starts at Richmond, with one top 10 in the Xfinity Series as his best result. In four Cup Series starts at the track, Byron’s best result is a 12th place finish.
Hamlin recovered from a poor race at Texas to once again run among the leaders. The Joe Gibbs driver finished fourth after a close battle with John Hunter Nemechek and round 2 winner Timmy Hill.
The reigning Daytona 500 winner made the trip to the virtual victory lane in the inaugural eNASCAR race at Homestead.
An experienced sim racer as well, the three-time Daytona 500 winner also owns an esports team in the eNASCAR iRacing Coca-Cola Series.
Hamlin is a three-time winner at his home track and an impressive average finish of 9.15 in 27 starts.
Right now, Hill looks like the only eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series capable of challenging Byron.
The NASCAR journeyman is the only driver to have finished all three races inside the top 3. After winning round 2 at Texas, Hill finished a respectable third at Bristol.
Timmy Hill has over 650 official wins on iRacing, and is one of the top sim racers in the eNASCAR field. The round 2 winner also made some starts in the eNASCAR iRacing Coca-Cola Series.
He has made 15 career starts at Richmond between the Xfinity and the Cup Series, with a best finish of 17th.
A three-time winner at Richmond in the Cup Series, Junior is in a prime position to recover from his recent results.
After narrowly missing out on the win at Homestead, he had two below-average showings. Junior recovered from an early brush with the wall to finish sixth at Texas, and could only manage a 22nd place at Bristol.
Earnhardt is also a former eNASCAR iRacing Coca-Cola Series driver. His JR Motorsports team has two entries in the virtual series.
William Byron won round 3 of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series at Bristol. It was Byron’s first win in the series.
Martin Truex Jr. is the defending Toyota Owners 400 winner but has not signed up for the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series race.
