“Our renewed relationship falls in line with NASCAR’s strategy to engage our fans across an array of digital platforms,” said NASCAR Vice President of Licensing and Consumer Products Blake Davidson. “We’re looking forward to furthering our work with iRacing, developing the world’s most authentic sanctioned online motorsports experience.”
iRacing will stage the sixth running of its virtual Daytona 500 the weekend of February 22.
