CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) William Byron led the most laps in NASCAR's first two virtual races and had nothing to show for his gaming skills. The third time out, he got the win.
Byron easily won the iRacing event Sunday at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, where NASCAR would have been really racing before the coronavirus pandemic caused sports to shut down.
“Some things are different but a lot of things are similar and this is a racetrack I've always enjoyed coming to,” Byron said. “It's fun to have some pressure on iRacing; I usually just run it to have some fun and get better.”
