A monster lay in wait for the drivers and teams of the NASCAR iRacing.com Class B Series in Week 5: Dover International Speedway.

With that being said, only 157 drivers tackled the mile track during the week of online racing.
Alex Scribner topped all drivers for the week when he took home 228 points for the week in the Strength of Field event. Armando Vargas collected just two points less to sit second. Matt Spangler of Ohio would sit third with 215 points, with Chad Pruitt and Brandon Buie2 rounding-out the top five in overall points for the week.
Donovan Johnson of Pennsylvania saw the green flag eight times at Dover to lead the series in that category, picking up one win and four time fives in those eight starts. Ryan Manning and Michael D Wade each collected a pair of wins to lead the series for the week, and also led the series in top fives at Dover with four apiece.
Top qualifying honors went to Justin Brooks of South Carolina, who turned a lap of 23.089s around the mile concrete oval, edging Anthony Kernich (23.100s) for fast lap. Armando Vargas, Brandon Buie2 and Justin Kirby rounded out the top five for the week.
Following the week at Dover, Kernich remains on top of the point standings with 1157 points. Buie2 sits second, 136 points out of the lead, with Scribner ithird followed by Brandon Hauck and Vargas.
