eNASCAR Invitational Dover in a Nutshell
The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series returns for the sixth time in its inaugural season. This Sunday, the virtual venue is Dover International Speedway, where eNASCAR Finish Line 150 is going to take place.
The rules of the race say there are going to be 150 laps, with one reset and three attempts and three shots at green–white–checker finish.
When it comes to qualifying, it will consist of two laps with single-car runs. According to the rules of eNASCAR, the top three finishers from the previous race will be put at the back of the starting lineup.
The three drivers who finished the Talladega Superspeedway virtual race last weekend before everyone else are Alex Bowman, Corey LaJoie, and Ryan Preece. As a result, the odds on those three drivers are much longer than what their previous performances might suggest.
Betting Odds & Favorites
The season is still in its early stages, but things seem to be heating up. Hendrick Motorsports is the team dubbed the biggest favorite for winning the championship.
So far, the team has been doing pretty well. William Byron won two races, while his teammate Alex Bowman has one title to his name so far.
Byron who won eNASCAR Invitational Richmond is listed as the favorite for winning the Sunday’s virtual race. Just behind him are iRacing stars Timmy Hill, Parker Kligerman, and Denny Hamlin.
Retired NASCAR legends like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Bobby Labonte aren’t among the main contenders judging by the odds given by top esports betting sites. You can see the betting odds yourself in the table below.
