Instead of exposing fans and teams to potential danger, NASCAR stepped into uncharted territory over the weekend. They moved the Homestead-Miami race online, and the eNASCAR innagural virtual race had recordbreaking vieweres.
As reported by engadget, the broadcast on Fox Sports1 had 903,000 fans glued to their screens. This is by-far the highest nuber for any nationally-broadcasted eSport, and I think Mr. France is smiling at this news. As the white flag dropped, Denny Hamlin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. were locked in a drag race off of turn 4. Watch the action here, and tell us who you thought should have won.
