iRacer Daniel Pope has partnered with Main Performance PC and Obutto Gaming Cockpits and will be running a Late Model in the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 at Martinsville Speedway on October 9. Pope, 24, has been extremely successful in his number 16 Late Model so far this season, collecting three wins to go along with 18 top five and 21 top ten finishes in 22 starts. The Smyrna, Tennessee native currently lies thirty-first in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Series national standings.
Pope is no stranger to the race track, having raced for most of his life. In 2007, Pope drove a Kevin Harvick Incorporated truck in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Mansfield. 2009 saw Pope drive a Late Model at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, making three visits to victory lane while coming home second in the championship. Pope is also an avid iRacer, collecting 33 wins and 183 top fives on the service while also competing in the premier oval series on iRacing, the NASCAR iRacing.com Series World Championship.
“It’s a pleasure to have Main Performance PC and Obutto onboard for the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300,” Pope said. “I can’t thank them enough for this great opportunity and think we have a great shot at bringing home a good finish.”
“Main Performance PC and Obutto Gaming Cockpits are thrilled to be a part of it,” says Main Performance PC CEO Michael Main. “This has been in the works a long time and it feels great to finally put it all together and get the car on the race track.”
