Side-by-side racing.

Weeks four and five of the NASCAR iRacing Class C Fixed Series brought nearly 4,700 sim racers from all around the world to the virtual circuits of Bristol Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Even though the two speedways are polar opposites of each other, they each provide a very unique form of racing which many people enjoy.


Chris J Miller (Carolina) drove his No. 5 Silverado into Bristol’s victory lane during the week’s top Strength of Field event after leading 22 of the event’s 55 laps. Steven Eszenyi (New England) finished off the event in the second position after starting from the pole and leading 33 laps. The final spot on the podium was secured by Paul Kusheba (New England) who started from the eighth position and worked his way into the top three as the checkered flag flew. The remaining positions in the top five were filled by New Jersey native Jordy Lopez Jr and Florida native Chris M Hall. The 4443 SoF was slowed five times for caution for a total of 21 laps and included just one lead change.


Malik Ray (Carolina) drove the famous No. 3 to victory during Week Five’s top SoF event by leading 15 of the event’s 35 laps en route to a 0.486 margin of victory over Brodie Kostecki (Carolina). Christian Pedersen (New England) started from the sixth position and quickly drove his No. 11 Silverado into the top five. The final spots in the top five were secured by Michael Guest (Indiana) and Paul Kusheba (New England). The 4990 SoF was slowed three times for caution for a total of eight laps and included seven lead changes among five drivers.

The remaining spots in the top five were held down by Brian V Macklin (Atlantic) and Steven Eszenyi, who scored 255 and 254 points, correspondingly.


Although he did not win the top SoF event of the week, he was able to earn the most championship points with 292 due to Ray running 31 races during the week.

Ryan Lowe (Virginias) put his Silverado on top of the qualifying chart with a time of 15.105 seconds. The second place man is also no stranger to the top of the qualifying chart. Simon Crochart (France) ended the week with a time of 15.132. Christian Pedersen (New England) capped off the week with a top three effort in the overall qualifying standings with a time of 15.138. The final two spots in the top five were occupied by Tom Moustakas (New York) and Eric Hoggarth (Plains) with times of 15.139 and 15.143 seconds.

The remainder of the top five was filled by Kostecki and Heath Hindman (Mid-South) with times of 29.532 and 29.534 seconds.
