Earlier this year, iRacing partnered with PEAK Antifreeze to sponsor the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series Powered by iRacing.com and the 2014 Season 1 PEAK Stock Car Dreams National Series.
As part of the agreement, the defending champion of the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series (Tyler Hudson) and the winner of the S1 PEAK Stock Car Dreams National Series (Paul Kusheba) qualified to participate in the 2nd annual PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge. This was a competition featuring real world short-track racing standouts around the country in a three-day challenge at Charlotte Motor Speedway this past June.
The event was taped for a two hour television special which will premier on the Velocity Channel this Saturday (August 2) at 9 pm Eastern time. If you miss the show on Saturday, you’ll have time to see the re-airs on Sunday and Monday:
Sunday, August 3 – Midnight and 4am Eastern Time
Monday, August 4 – 5pm Eastern Time
Hundreds of racers applied for the PEAK Stock Car Dreams Challenge but only 18 were selected to compete. The television show will highlight how the 18 contestants (including Tyler, Paul and some other iRacers) competed in real race cars at Charlotte to win a real world NASCAR K&N Pro Series West ride.
While the event took place in June, we are all sworn to secrecy by PEAK until Saturday’s broadcast premier. However, you can click here for a preview of what’s in store on Saturday night.
Be sure and watch the PEAK Stock Car Dreams Challenge on the Velocity Channel this Saturday at 9 pm (and/or Sunday and Monday). You’ll be glad you did!
