If there’s been one defining feature of the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series over the past month-plus, it’s been unpredictability. If there’s any remaining track on the schedule that has the chance to amplify that any further, it’s Dover International Speedway.
The Monster Mile is well known for chewing cars up and spitting them out, and it’s hard not to expect more of the same from today’s Finish Line 150 (1PM ET, FOX/FS1/FOX Sports app). It may be hard to top some of what we saw in last weekend’s Geico 70 at Talladega Superspeedway, or even the Food City Showdown at Bristol Motor Speedway earlier in the year, but the Saturday Night Thunder race for NASCAR Xfinity Series, Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, and ARCA Menards Series drivers proved that Dover can be just as unforgiving in the virtual world as it is in the real one.
Hendrick Motorsports enters Dover on a three-race win streak thanks to the combined efforts of William Byron and Alex Bowman, the latter winning at Talladega last week in a photo finish. Byron remains the only repeat winner of the season so far, and could have three victories if not for Timmy Hill’s late-race pass in Texas. Byron and Hill are expected to fight up front once again in today’s race.
The real world may not offer much precedent for today’s race, especially as the most recent real-world NASCAR Cup Series winner entered in today’s race is spring 2018 winner Kevin Harvick. But both Busch brothers have won here, with Kyle’s fall 2017 win the most recent, and have been rapidly improving their Pro Invitational results over the past few weeks. Other consistent Pro Invitational front-runners who are still chasing their first victory include Garrett Smithley, Parker Kligerman, and Landon Cassill.
