2023 eNASCAR Contender iRacing Series


The 2024 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series is the 15th season of the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series. The season started with an exhibition race at Daytona International Speedway on January 30 (the only exhibition race of the year) and will conclude at the Homestead Miami Speedway on October 1. Drivers are competing for a prize package of $511,000 (USD), the largest in series history. $100,000 of the prize package will go to the series champion. For a third straight season, the Championship 4 drivers will compete in the season finale from a live event.


Schedule

The 2024 schedule was released on January 11, 2024. The calendar is broken up into three distinct regular season segments, followed by the traditional four-race playoffs. As in past seasons, 10 drivers qualify for the playoffs by either winning a race or scoring the most points in the regular season, and four of those drivers will qualify for a shot at the championship in the season finale. While Segment 1 of the regular season starts with the traditional opener at Daytona International Speedway, the other two segments will kick off with the series debuts of Brands Hatch Circuit and Iowa Speedway in April and June, respectively. Road course races like Brands Hatch will feature a new sprint and feature race format, while short tracks like Iowa will start with a pair of heat races to set the grid for the feature. The preseason Clash implemented the heat formula too, as it returned to Daytona for the first time since 2021. Other highlights include the return of fixed setup races to the schedule at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 12, Talladega Superspeedway on April 30, and the Chicago Street Course.
