NASCAR Pinty’s Series driver Treyten Lapcevich dominated the final round of the DBOX eNASCAR International iRacing Series presented by Digital Motorsports season, scoring the checkered flag at Phoenix Raceway from the pole on Saturday morning. Lapcevich led all but one of the race’s 65 laps as it was extended for a green-white-checkered finish, posted the fastest lap of the race, and held off a closely packed field to close out the season with a deserved victory.

Lapcevich’s closest challenger at the finish was former NASCAR Whelen Euro Series champion Alon Day, who started second and ran within the top five all race. After sweeping all three road course race wins in the previous three weeks, Day overcame a lap-down finish in the opener from Homestead to hold the points lead coming into the Phoenix finale, and his second-place result was more than enough to retain the championship.

An impressive charge from the 21st starting spot saw NASCAR Xfinity Series and Drive for Diversity driver Rajah Caruth finish third at race’s end; it took the Homestead winner less than 10 laps to crack the top 10, and he made it into the top five for the first time on lap 20. Fellow series front-runners Tobias Dauenhauer and Alex de Alba completed the top five, with de Alba recovering from a pit road speeding penalty after having briefly taken the lead from Lapcevich under pit stops.

What had already been a close points battle received a further shuffle from the Phoenix finish as well. Lapcevich jumped to second in the final standings with his win, overtaking NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series driver Victor Barrales, who finished 10th. Caruth and de Alba were part of a three-way tie for fourth in the standings with Simon Pilate, who finished 13th, while Dauenhauer was just two points away from making it a four-way tie.
