The last time the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series visited Dover Motor Speedway, William Byron eSports driver Nick Ottinger scored the victory on the way to his first series title. After Tuesday night, 39 other drivers are hoping that isn’t an omen.

Ottinger scored his second straight win, both in the 2022 season and at “The Monster Mile,” with an impressive performance on Tuesday night. After surviving a flurry of late-race restarts, including a spectacular jump on Team Dillon Esports’ Corey Vincent going into eNASCAR Overtime, he continued a dominant early season that has either seen him start or finish first in all but one race in the first year of the Next Gen car.

Ottinger and fellow former series champion Michael Conti of JR Motorsports led a vast majority of the action, with each spending more than 50 laps up front, but Conti would be trapped a lap down briefly after a yellow flag came out just after he pit from the lead. Things wouldn’t work out much better in the long run for Joe Gibbs Racing’s Bobby Zalenski, who took it from him at that point; Zalenski would be the centerpiece of the final caution, dropping him from a certain top five to a disappointing 29th.

Instead, Stewart-Haas eSports’ Steven Wilson would jump to third at the finish, with Daytona winner Femi Olatunbosun of Clint Bowyer Racing in fourth and 2019 series champion Zack Novak of Rise eSports completing the top five. Despite eight cautions for 31 laps, amplified by Dover’s tight quarters that often sent wrecking drivers back up the track and into harm’s way, 25 of the 40 starters still managed to earn lead-lap finishes.
