Denny Hamlin Racing’s Casey Kirwan won the race on Tuesday in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series race at the Michigan International Speedway.
TRE reports, “I knew we had a real good piece coming into tonight. It was going to be really hard to one-stop it, and once we had that quick caution, we could all one stop it.
“I tried to play it smart there,” Kirwan said post-race in the virtual victory lane.
“I was kind of trying to wait until twelve to go. And then Ray (Alfalla) started going, I wanted to wait a little bit more. I just drove it in on the top, finally cleared (Alfalla)… and then the caution came out.”
Denny Hamlin is happy with the eNASCAR win

Chris Shearburn began on the pole position for the third time on Tuesday. He drives for the Letarte eSports. The race began to get fascinating when Jeremy Allen and Nick Ottinger touched on the 2nd lap.
The second-place starter, Malik Ray, crashed with them as collateral damage. This crash ended up finishing the night for the trio. They all were seeking solid runs as the playoffs are only six races away.
Kirwan hustled with Ray Alfalla and even overtook Alex McCollum. He had an amazing run and was able to beat the remainder of the field in the Double Overtime eNASCAR race. This was the 2nd win of his career.
A furious fight between McCollum, Kirwan, and Alfalla saw Kirwan in front. Kirwan was able to secure the lead during the last lap.
McCollum came in at second and Alfalla filled out the Top-3. Chris Shearburn, who started on pole position, completed the race in 4th and Christian Challiner finished in the 5th position.
The eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series will move to the Daytona International Speedway Road Course. The Speedway will host the series for the first time in history on August 11.
