Roush Fenway Racing superstar Greg Biffle, defending champion of the SYLVANIA 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, will challenge fans to hit the gas and step into iRacing.com's NASCAR simulators at Game On! Fenway. Aspiring drivers who think they have what it takes to sit behind the wheel of some of the world's most powerful vehicles, will "race-off" in the same life-like simulators from iRacing that train some of the top competitors on the NASCAR circuit.
Fans will feel the pressure from NASCAR's elite when they burn rubber on a true-to-life virtual New Hampshire Motor Speedway track in a tournament-style competition on iRacing.com simulators. Three finalists will have the opportunity to see if they have what it takes to race a professional when they go head-to-head with Biffle to determine an ultimate victor.
iRacing.com is a subscription-based online motorsports simulation for racing fans and other driving enthusiasts that is so authentic and accurate that even NASCAR professionals like Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Joey Logano, A.J. Allmendinger, and many others use it to train for real-world races.
New Hampshire Motor Speedway will host the SYLVANIA 300, the first race in the "Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup," on Sunday, September 20, in which Biffle will compete.
