One teen will take home a $10,000 scholarship
The eNASCAR Ignite Series, the first ever youth esports series on iRacing.com culminates tonight with this winner take all Final Championship race. This online series was created to provide young aspiring racers a platform where their talents could be showcased and they have done just that. The Top 30 will do battle tonight for over $10,000 in scholarship money and prizes.
For the last 3 months, hundreds of 13 to 16 year olds from around the world have competed in this NASCAR youth initiative. Only the Top 30 in points will move on to tonight’s race. Sixteen states and four countries will be represented in this final event. They will be competing in exact digital replicas of the Legend car on iRacing’s millimeter accurate recreation of the iconic Martinsville Speedway.
Along with the $10,000 scholarship, the champion will also win a one-on-one driver instructional with Max Papis (including one of his MPI Steering Wheels), an introduction to NASCAR racing development personnel, a SimSeat simulation cockpit and seat with monitor stands, a Martinsville Speedway VIP experience where they will be acknowledged as Champion, a NASCAR Racing Experience Voucher, and a VIP iRacing account.
