Mullis Muddles Playoff Picture With Third Straight eNASCAR Win in New Hampshire

He may drive for Richmond Raceway eSports, but there’s something about the Magic Mile that really agrees with Jimmy Mullis.

For the third straight time, an eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series event from New Hampshire Motor Speedway ended with Mullis taking the checkered flag on Tuesday night. He scored his first career victory from the track three years ago, dominated in his return in 2020 after the series skipped the year before, and survived a flurry of late-race restarts and overtime once again this year to hold off Mode Motorsports’ Jake Nichols and JR Motorsports’ Michael Conti. Matching the real-world NASCAR Cup Series total, Mullis is now the 11th different winner in the 2021 season so far, guaranteeing that at least one race winner won’t make it into the playoffs simply by virtue of scoring a victory.

At just over a mile but with flat corners, NHMS isn’t technically a short track, but most drivers agree that it tends to race like one. That’s why, for the second year in a row, there were quite a few cautions in the planned 151-lap race; while the field managed to get the total count down to 32 yellow flag laps from last year’s 53, thanks in part to lengthy green-flag stretches in the first half of the race, there were multiple wrecks that involved large portions of the field, including one coming to the checkered flag.

Many drivers in the playoffs, or on the cusp of a berth, took their share of lumps in those late-race wrecks. Among those impacted by the late-race carnage was Las Vegas winner Ryan Luza of XSET, who was involved in the biggest wreck of the night after trying to blend back into the field coming off of Turn 4. Top rookie Steven Wilson of Roush Fenway Racing, who is still looking for his breakthrough win to establish a playoff berth, also took damage from multiple incidents, while Atlanta winner Logan Clampitt of William Byron eSports was involved in the final yellow flag of the night to set up overtime.
