Longtime iRacers are undoubtedly aware of the Landon Cassill Qualifying Challenge, a high-stakes, one-lap run designed to mimic the pressure of real-world qualifying for teams without a guaranteed spot in a NASCAR field. In its inaugural edition 10 years ago, it was Jason Lofing who turned the fastest lap and took home a $1,000 cash prize. Tonight, 40 of iRacing’s best drivers will relive that pressure—for ten times the cash.

Tonight’s Landon Cassill Qualifying Challenge presented by SelectBlinds (9PM ET, eNASCAR.com/live) puts $10,000 on the line for an insanely talented group of iRacers. After more than 210 drivers showed up last night to the virtual Darlington Raceway to try and earn a spot in the show, the field went down to a tiebreaker—where Rajah Caruth and Michael B. Daniel tied down to the thousandth of a second, and Caruth’s second-best lap proved the difference.

Lofing is back on the grid as well, joined by no fewer than 19 drivers from the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series, plus NASCAR Cup Series drivers Denny Hamlin, Timmy Hill, and Garrett Smithley. With the entire field separated by just .083 seconds,
