iRacing Pro Invitational Series at Bristol – follow live

Welcome to Week 3 of iRacing! We’re taking you to virtual Bristol for Sunday’s great race.

Get your engine going because the action starts at 1 pm ET on FS1.

If you haven’t heard about WrestleMania 36, well, now you have. It’s taking place this weekend, and we thought we’d bring some WWE stars to join our party.

Rob Gronkowski and Mojo Rawley will your Grand Marshals for today.

It’s just a star studded cast at virtual Bristol.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and four-time Super Bowl champion Terry Bradshaw is ready for racing and pulling for last week’s winner NASCAR Cup Series driver Timmy Hill.

2019 NASCAR Cup Series champion joined NASCAR studio host Lindsay Czarniak to discuss his strategy and how he has incorporated practice on the rig back into his routine.

“The cars are driven way different here than they are in real life. You can take advantage of situations on the game, because obviously there’s no repercussions, right? There’s no crashing, no torn up equipment. So you’re trying to figure that out and engulf into that system – into the game – to figure out how you can do that to be faster and more competitive.”

And our NASCAR Insider Bob Pockrass is here to answer all your questions before the light turns green!

We had two-time winner of the Daytona 500 Michael Waltrip visit the “virtual” track. But somehow he got lost in cyberspace.

“I love looking around … and seeing the empty grandstands, and hearing the silence of pit road. Oh no, I’m at the work track again!”

Ah yes, that’s what it’s supposed to look like.

We started our Sunday off with some heat races.

NASCAR Cup Series driver William Byron had a cake-walk first heat win. His qualifying lap was a thing of beauty, and set himself up nicely for the race ahead.

Not everyone had such smooth sailing. 2020 Daytona 500 Winner Denny Hamlin will have to use a reset.

It was a tight finish in this heat. NASCAR Cup Series driver John Hunter Nemechek edged out Ryan Preece for the win.

Now that we’ve finished the qualifiers, it’s time to move onto the main event.

We mentioned our WWE stars earlier, and boy, did they not disappoint. WE ARE READY!

Green means go!

If you think this is easy, think again. NASCAR Cup Series driver and “in-race” analyst Clint Bowyer was having his fair share of problems today.

“This is worse than real life.”

Our in race analysts are having a tough time today. NASCAR Cup Series driver and two-time Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson is dealing with cautions and heavy damage early on.

“Just trying to stay clean … I mean, we’re all trying to deal. It’s just difficult to do so in the game.”

Sometimes a driver and his crew chief don’t quite get a long. Former NASCAR crew chief and racing analyst Larry McReynolds volunteered to help out Bowyer this week, but maybe Larry bit off more than he can chew.

“I need you to stay out. I’m a little bit busy right now. Look, I know tires are free, but I think we’ve already put eight sets in 50 laps on you. Just stay out.”

After eight restarts, tensions are high on the track. NASCAR Cup Series drivers Daniel Suarez and Kyle Larson are trying to settle some scores from earlier.

There have been so many cautions, so we’re not surprised two-time Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. came out a little too early and clipped a cone. Oops!

Stay tuned for more updates.
