With the NASCAR season shut down until further notice, there is a void for both drivers and sectators in the racing world. Enter: The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series. 

What is the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series? It is an exhibition esports series featuring many of the sports most talented and popular drivers. The simulation-style showcase will include a cross-section of competitors from the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and a group of NASCAR dignitaries such as, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Bobby Labonte.

Fox Sports has announced that it will simulcast the series remaining races across the networks of FOX, in particular FOX Sports 1 and the FOX Sports app. The races are also available in Canada on FOX Sports Racing. 

FOX is coming off recent success with the airing of the 100 lap race at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway, last Sunday. The broadcast was the highest rated broadcast since all of sports shut down on March 12th. Last Sunday's broadcast was also the highest rated eSports TV program ever. 

This week the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series moves to the virtual Texas Motor Speedway. Sunday's broadcast will be at 1PM ET. Mike Joy, Jeff Gordon, Larry McReynolds, will have the call. Clint Bowyer will also be providing an inside look at the race, while he competes.
