Logan Seavey captures Saturday Night Thunder iRacing victory

first_imgReal-world dirt darling Logan Seavey passed Chase Cabre with 13 laps remaining in the iRacing Saturday Night Thunder event at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, then sped ahead for the victory in a first-of-its kind eNASCAR showcase.Seavey, who qualified for the main event by finishing second place in the first heat race of the evening, was the class of the field late in Saturday’s 150-lap race comprised of real-world drivers from NASCAR’s Xfinity Series, Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, ARCA Menards Series, Pinty’s Series and NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series.“I kind of put myself in a good spot and my team put me in a good spot,” Seavey said. “We were able to switch strategies around, save tires and pit as much as we could. The last 50 or 60 laps, I just saved until the last 20 or 30 and knew I had enough to run down Chase there.”RELATED: Complete eNASCAR coverageCabre finished second to Seavey, with Alex Labbe, who pushed the leaders late, Anthony Alfredo and Kyle Weatherman rounding out the top five.iRacing megastar Ty Majeski took sixth, with Justin Allgaier, Blake Koch, Joey Gase and Jeb Burton rounding out the top 10. Koch, who won the first heat race to start the main event from the pole, led the first 67 laps before ceding the lead to pit under caution.Saturday Night Thunder was the first race in a new esports racing outlet, which complements the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series featuring NASCAR Cup Series stars on Sunday. It was an appetizer of sorts for Sunday’s main event, the Food City Showdown presented by M&Ms (1 p.m. ET, FOX, FS1, FOX Sports App). Even that race, the third of the iRacing Pro Invitational Series, is getting a tweak. The lineup for the field of NASCAR Cup Series drivers will be set after two heat races rather than single-car qualifying.RELATED: Entry list for Sunday’s raceMore than 40 drivers entered Saturday’s race, but only 24 raced in the main event. Drivers qualified for the main event through three 20-lap heat races, with the top four drivers in each heat race advancing to the main event. 797Justin Allgaier0Running FinStrCarDriverLedStatus 151136Jesse Iwuji0Running 91953Joey Gase0Running 211540Ryan Truex0Disconnected 242020Harrison Burton0Disconnected 231627Ruben Garcia0Disconnected 221319Derek Kraus0Disconnected 10218Jeb Burton0Running 4333Anthony Alfredo0Running 5254Kyle Weatherman0Running 61245Ty Majeski0Running 131475Landon Huffman0Running 8157Blake Koch67Running 2704Chase Cabre51Running 111810Justin Haley0Running 16655Will Rodgers0Running 3590Alex Labbe19Running 181768Brandon L Brown0Running 1710029Kaz Grala0Running 20899Joshua Bilicki0Running 122252Stewart Friesen0Running 142393Myatt Snider0Running 1467Logan Seavey13Running 192446Chandler Smith0Disqualified Following the three heats, two 20-lap last chance qualifier (LCQ) races were held with all the drivers who hadn’t already advanced.
