eNASCAR College Series returns for a full academic year in 2023-2024

For North American Collegiate sim racers, iRacing and NASCAR are bringing back the eNASCAR College iRacing Series for a full academic year in 2023-2024.

eNASCAR’s North American collegiate sim racing division, the eNASCAR College iRacing Series, is set to return later in 2023 for a full academic calendar year, lasting through the middle of 2024 with a nine-race schedule that will decide an overall champion by the end of it.

In collaboration with Playfly Esports and the NACE Starleague, and also of course, NASCAR itself, the esports division at iRacing is offering up a prize purse of $60,000 in scholarships to distribute over the calendar year, plus a $30,000 prize pool for the championship race on 3rd May at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Last semester, former eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series competitor Logan Clampitt scored the 2023 Spring Season title after winning three races in the four-race season. The semester before that, current eNASCAR driver Steven Wilson swept the whole semester’s schedule.

Nine current NASCAR venues, including two Superspeedway tracks, six intermediate venues and one road course at Watkins Glen, are on the 2023-2024 curriculum. The series will once again utilize the NASCAR Xfinity Series Class B cars, but in select races, the Class C NASCAR Trucks will be used.

College students will be able to try out for every race through the Time Attack Qualifying sessions, where the Top 40 drivers will be entered into the A-Main races for points and payouts. After the first eight races and drop weeks are considered, the Top 25 drivers will be invited to race for the title in the ninth and final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

“We are excited to announce our first full academic year offering of the eNASCAR College iRacing Series,” said Ray Smith, Director of Gaming/eSports for NASCAR in the release. “NASCAR is proud of the collaborative efforts of iRacing, Playfly and NACE Starleague to introduce sim racing to the college esports scene.”

More details can be found on both the iRacing website as well as on the official Playfly Esports site.
