CONCORD, NC — An incredible three-car battle for the lead in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car iRacing Invitational Sunday night on DIRTVision at The Dirt Track at Charlotte was the icing on the cake in an exciting night of virtual racing.
Kevin Swindell, Logan Seavey and Aussie Jock Goodyer raced side-by-side-by-side until they couldn’t. Ultimately, it was Goodyer who took the $1,000 checkered flag on a night when fans and competitors went to social media to talk about the second World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car iRacing Invitational.
The night started with several racers sharing a behind-the-scenes look at how they prepare to go iRacing with the World of Outlaws…

Well that one was rough. Leading late and after about the third attempt @GoodyerJock finally got me. Hopefully he can help me out with my virtual chiropractor bill with that money. pic.twitter.com/Rn53O1ynfY

It’s cool to see @KevinSwindell racing again. *sim racing or not*
Makes my heart happy for him he’s able to adapt to so many different ways of doing things and still finds a way to be good at all of it.
