After the success of the broadcast for the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series on the 1st of April, I am pleased to say that the teamwork between myself, Vertex Sports Management, LuxSim24 and Simply Race did not stop - since then we have been working together to create, run and broadcast a weekly championship on iRacing - the Vertex Stock Car Cup.
Using the Legacy NASCAR Xfinity Cars on a fixed setup, there will be five rounds for the drivers to compete in, starting on the 15th of April at Homestead, Miami and running weekly as we visit Brands Hatch, Daytona, Zolder and finish up at Martinsville. This means that driver skill will be tested to the limit with an alternating mix of road courses and ovals, with long race lengths demanding extended concentration from everyone on track.
I'm very grateful to be given another chance to work with such a great team of people and companies to bring the best Esports Broadcast content to the viewers that we can. It really didn't take long for us to form a great plan and get to work on making it a reality - Alex Sedgwick in particular has been constantly on it, setting my phone alight with messages and details all around the clock.

We're aiming to push this out over a lot of channels including YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Pages, so hopefully I'll be seeing a lot of you on the streams and in the comments section - it's bound to be a fantastic series, and awesome racing for us all to enjoy.
Also, if you would like to look back on the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series broadcast, I'll pop it just down here for you.
