The eNASCAR International iRacing Series will expand to a five-race schedule in 2022 with new partners D-BOX Technologies and Digital Motorsports along for the ride.
In its second year, the D-BOX eNASCAR International iRacing Series presented by Digital Motorsports will visit virtual tracks in the United States, Canada and Belgium, beginning at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, January 8. Drivers in the series compete via iRacing.com, the official simulation partner of NASCAR, which provides online racing simulation portals and features officially sanctioned, laser-scanned replicas of race tracks around the world.
“With the support of D-BOX and Digital Motorsports, we’re able to continue growing the sport on an international stage, reaching new fans and showcasing the talent of our international drivers,” said Chad Seigler, vice president of international business development and partnerships for NASCAR. “We’ll also see several new tracks on the schedule, giving drivers the chance to test their skills around the globe.”
Events will be live-streamed on eNASCAR.com/live at 12 p.m. EST on race days for a worldwide audience.
“This agreement with eNASCAR continues our commitment to make D-BOX a household name in NASCAR and especially in sim racing, where we provide value for everyone from drivers to fans, and event organizers,” said Sébastien Mailhot, president and chief executive officer of D-BOX. “The massive following of race fans, especially in North America, and those passionate about sim racing, opens the door for D-BOX to gain access to invaluable exposure with potential consumers.”
“Through this partnership, we’re uniquely positioned to help drive the series forward through our simulators and esports technology,” said Niall Maher, founder and chief executive officer of Digital Motorsports. “We’re excited to support this NASCAR initiative and bring drivers, teams and the NASCAR community together with the goal of creating more fan engagement and driver development internationally.”
