eNASCAR College iRacing Series Race Preview: Visit Myrtle Beach 120 at Charlotte

The eNASCAR College iRacing Series returns to action on Thursday night for its second event of 2022 with a visit to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Visit Myrtle Beach 120. The action kicks off at 8PM ET, with live streaming coverage as drivers battle in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series trucks for their share of $50,000 in scholarship money at eNASCAR.com/live.

The season opened in Daytona with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Colton Salek leading just one lap—the last one—to score the first checkered flag of the year in the Playfly Sports 60. Salek utilized a push from the University of Rhode Island’s Shawn Jencsik to pass Rutgers representative Daniel Buttafuoco in the third turn, and held off Jencsik’s charge to the checkers.

Once again, this week’s entry list features multiple drivers with eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series experience, headlined by that series’ most recent winner, Steven Wilson. The Stewart-Haas eSports driver will be representing the University of Iowa in this event, though, where he’ll be joined by 2021 championship runner-up Logan Clampitt (Saddleback CC) and former eNASCAR drivers Santiago Tirres (UNC-Charlotte) and Ryan Doucette (University of Southern Maine). Tirres and Wilson posted the top two qualifying times in this month’s Time Attack qualifier at 30.4615 and 30.4657 seconds, respectively. All told, 374 students from over 250 different colleges and universities have registered for their shot to compete in the series.
