The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series will not run the rest of the season as planned previously, according to Adam Stern on Twitter.
The series, which first began last year during the break in competition due to COVID-19, ran five races this year that aired on Fox Sports 1. It was slated to continue on NBC for the remaining five events.
Drivers competed at the virtual Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track, Talladega Superspeedway, Darlington Raceway, Circuit of the Americas and a new Chicago street course.
