NBC Sports, iRacing, and NASCAR have come together for a groundbreaking series of four eNASCAR iRacing events, with each to be shown live on NASCAR America on Thursdays at 5PM ET. After debuting at Iowa Speedway on July 25, the series returns to action later today with a visit to Rockingham Speedway.

Last month’s event at Iowa may not have paid points in the eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series, but it was still one of the most dramatic events of the year for its drivers. Real-world NASCAR star and NBC Sports analyst Parker Kligerman joined the field and qualified on the pole, but it was JTG Daugherty Racing’s Nick Ottinger who beat Flipsid3 Tactics’ Ryan Luza to the checkered flag in a photo finish. As was the case last month, Kligerman will compete in the event from the NBC Sports studio in Connecticut, while fellow PEAK Series team owners Jeff Burton and Steve Letarte will join NBCSN’s Krista Voda and AJ Allmendinger for live coverage of the race.

Much like Iowa, today’s event at Rockingham will answer the question of what the current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series car would race like on a track where it doesn’t currently run. “The Rock” was a staple of the NASCAR schedule from 1965 to 2004, and many of the sport’s biggest names took victories on the unique D-shaped oval, led by Richard Petty, who conquered the track a record 11 times.

Here’s a look at the expected entry list for tonight’s eNASCAR iRacing All-Star Race at Rockingham Speedway:

When are the last two races? I really enjoyed the first, and would have tuned in live for this one if I had known it was on! :^(
