Featuring races from NASCAR, INDYCAR, IMSA, Supercross and other series, Racing Week in America will have a specific theme for each day – with “Twists and Turns Tuesday” today and continuing through the week with themes like “WednesDale,” “Best of the Brickyard,” and “Daytona Speed Day.”
The NBC eSports Short Track iRacing Challenge continues tonight at 7 p.m. ET from the virtual Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis. Six NASCAR drivers will compete in two timed races, with the race winners advancing to Thursday night’s championship race at virtual Martinsville Speedway.
