iRacing To Host eTruck Series Night This Thursday

Top real-world NASCAR drivers, champion iRacers, and casual race fans will all get together this Thursday, March 19, to take part in eTruck Series Night in America Powered by FilterTime.

Organized by NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Ryan Vargas, the event will feature heat races leading into a 100-lap feature on a track to be announced at a later date, and will be run to benefit multiple charities. There will be a livestream on the iRacing Twitch channel (twitch.tv/iracing), with production by Podium eSports and Speed51 providing additional coverage of the event.

The event was organized after an “overwhelming” response to a tweet Vargas posted after the postponement or cancelation of multiple events in the world of sports, including multiple NASCAR event weekends, in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Vargas will be joined in the event by a group of racers that includes NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Brandon Brown, NASCAR Truck Series driver Christian Eckes, ARCA Menards Series drivers Ty Gibbs, Connor Hall, Chase Cabre, and Ruben Garcia, NBC Sports analyst Parker Kligerman, and four-time eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series champion Ray Alfalla, with a number of other professional racers expected to commit in the coming days. The rest of the spots on the entry list will be open to fans.

eTruck Series Night in America Powered by FilterTime will be run to benefit the National Craniofacial Association (FACES) and Cranio Care Bears. In addition, the event winner will be able to donate $100 to the charity of their choice courtesy of Carolina Sim Works.
