On Sunday April 5th, 2020 Fox Sports One aired the eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series event at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway. Timmy Hill raced his #66 RoofClaim.com Toyota Camry in the 150 lap race. Timmy Hill placed third, and is also the only driver to finish in top five in each of the first three events. William Byron ended up with the victory yesterday, following John Hunter Nemechek who took second.
Rivalries were still present even in a virtual race. Kyle Larson and Daniel Suarez were both parked yesterday for wrecking each other after an incident. This is the second week in a row that Daniel Suarez was removed from the race by iRacing officials.
