Logan Seavey came out on top of a four way battle to take the iRacing.com World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series tilt at Eldora Speedway on Monday. Seavey grabbed the pole position from Christopher Bell, Mike McKinney and Kevin J. Holley, jumped to the lead at the start and led comfortably if not handily through most of the race. But with five laps remaining Bell forced his way past and a lap later McKinney joined-in on the fun, as the top three swapped paint in their fight for the lead. The status quo held the next time ’round with Bell, Seavey and McKinney covered by the proverbial blanket before Bell clouted the wall exiting Turn Two on Lap 28 and rebounded into McKinney. McKinnery gathered it together and continued ahead of Holley while Bell slipped back to fourth.
Seavey began pulling away over the final two laps, taking the checkered flag 1.135s ahead of McKinney with Holley another .3s back and Bell coming home fourth ahead of Chance Crum and the big mover of the race, iRacing veteran Vinnie Sansone. After qualifying twelfth, Samson moved-up three spots on the opening lap and picked-off two more spots on the second lap. From there he maintained position until relieving Nick Cooper of sixth place just before the halfway point. However, that was as far as Sansone would advance as he took the flag ahead of Cooper and Stephen Moore, with Davey Scovel and Satoru Ohno completing the top ten.
Next week finds the iRacing World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series heading t0 the super quick USA International Speedway for another round of sprint car sim racing.
