PARKER, AZ (October 10, 2019) –– Jim Beaver eSports’ inaugural eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series campaign draws to a close tonight, as drivers Michael Guariglia and Eric J. Smith wheel the Down & Dirty Show Powered By Polaris RZR/GoPro Motorplex Ford Mustangs around Homestead-Miami Speedway in the season finale. Following two all-star races this summer, tonight’s race marks the first time an official series event will be shown love on national TV, airing at 5PM ET/2PM PT on NBCSN’s NASCAR America.
“We’ve come a long way since the start of this year, from launching our first eSports initiative to acquiring a full team this fall,” said team owner Jim Beaver. “Michael and Eric have done a great job representing the team, and I can’t wait to see them take on the field one more time this season as we look to end our first eNASCAR campaign with a solid finish.”
“Homestead is a fantastic track to finish the biggest season in oval sim racing history,” said Smith. “This race normally has long green flag runs with green flag pit stops and always houses excitement in the championship battle. My partners have been so integral in pushing me to be better and to have the opportunity to snub the championship contenders with a win is paramount to me; I just can’t wait to hit the track on Thursday evening!”
“I’ve tested a ton for this race,” added Guariglia. “My rookie season has had a lot of ups and downs and I am looking to finish on a high note and retain my license for 2020. This track is going to really provide for multi-groove racing, just to get away from the dirty air. On the bright side, I feel as though our car is very good on the longer run, especially in dirty air, compared to others. We have been able to pass in dirty air and I think that’ll be an asset for the race.”
Tonight’s eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series race from Homestead-Miami Speedway will air live at 5PM ET/2PM PT on NBCSN. Following the competing of the eNASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series, Jim Beaver will continue its pursuit of the Thrustmaster iRacing Rallycross World Championship with drivers Bobby Sandt Jr. and Connor Parise on Saturday afternoons through November 30, with this week’s race taking the team to Daytona International Speedway.
