iRacing Truck Series Night in America Returns; Will Run Richmond Raceway

Part-time NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Ryan Vargas announced the second edition of Truck Series Night In America on Easter Sunday (April 12).

This time, the race will take place at virtual Richmond Raceway, once again on the iRacing service.

This event is a follow-up to last month’s race at virtual Atlanta Motor Speedway, which saw defending eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing champion Zack Novak prevail in the 100-lap feature. The inaugural Truck Series night drew 300 “open” entrants, 20 of whom raced their way into the feature through multiple heat races the night before. Novak was one of 23 drivers who had automatic byes into the main event and did not need to race in.

Among the drivers announced for this go-round include former Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi, retired NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler, NHRA champion Ron Capps, and World of Outlaws driver David Gravel. NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Harrison Burton, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Anthony Alfredo, Tommy Joe Martins, and Myatt Snider have entered as have NASCAR Gander RC & Outdoors Truck Series drivers Austin Hill, Spencer Boyd, and Austin Wayne Self. These real world drivers, along with ARCA Menards Series phenom Hailie Deegan, will be among the 23 guaranteed entry into the main event. 20 more drivers will round out the field by advancing through the heat races the night prior.

This month’s Truck Series Night in America event will take place on Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m. ET and will once again be broadcast by Podium eSports on its Twitch channel. Entries are once again open to everybody but will require a $5 entry fee, as the event will benefit Project Hope.
