SPECIAL FOR VIRTUAL AA400 – Nashville, TN (Friday, October 23, 2020) – When the Nation and world were pulled to a near halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many racers, fans and industry professionals turned to the iRacing platform to get their “fix” while plans were being laid out to return to the track. Already known for helping drivers like William Byron reach higher levels of racing, and being recognized as one of the most popular driving simulation experiences, it’s no question why it was used to fill the void. Now, the platform takes center stage again for this weekend’s All American eSports 400.
Just as it will be for the 36th Running of the All American 400 on October 30th through November 1st, the weekend of racing at the virtual Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway begins with Local Racing divisions on Friday, October 23rd. Racing Friday night begins at 8:30 pm CST with a 35 lap Legends feature, 30 laps for Front Runners, 40 laps for Super Streets, and a 50 lap Limited Late Model feature for the nightcap.
On Saturday Super Trucks and Pro Late Models take center stage for their night of racing following Qualifying for the All American eSports 400 which begins at 7 pm CST. Then at 8pm, Super Trucks race for 50 laps around the famed 5/8th-mile oval, followed by 150 laps of Pro Late Model racing.
Sunday night, the inaugural All American eSports 400 race day begins with a Last Chance Qualifier at 6pm. The green flag waves for the 250 lap main event at 7:35 pm CT. The winner of the All American eSports 400 not only receives bragging rights, but also a minimum $150 prize.
Event organizer, William Hale says this weekend’s events are unprecedented, and fans will be treated to an unbelievable show.
