Colton Salek Steals Inaugural eNASCAR College iRacing Series Victory at Daytona

Colton Salek Steals Inaugural eNASCAR College iRacing Series Victory at Daytona

When 38 of the top college-aged sim racers in North America rolled off the grid for the inaugural eNASCAR College iRacing Series powered by NACE Starleague race, Thursday night’s Playfly Sports 60 at Daytona International Speedway, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Colton Salek was set to roll off 27th. When the checkered flag fell, he had only led one lap—but it was the most important one.

Using a push from University of Rhode Island’s Shawn Jencsik, Salek got past Rutgers driver Daniel Buttafuoco in Turn 3, and had enough of a gap coming to the finish line to hang on for the victory as Jencsik ducked to try to make a run in the final feet. Buttafuoco, who led 14 laps, would hang on for third, as the top 10 drivers were separated by just under a second across the stripe.

The eNASCAR College iRacing Series powered by NACE Starleague gives college and university-enrolled drivers an opportunity to compete in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series vehicles on behalf of their respective schools for a year-long prize pool of $50,000 in scholarship money. The list of qualifiers for Thursday night’s race was a varied one, representing schools across the continental United States and Canada, and even current and former eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series drivers. That group was led by former Letarte Esports driver Santiago Tirres, who qualified on the pole, led a race-high 19 laps, and finished fifth on behalf of UNC Charlotte.
