Daniel Buttafuoco Takes eNASCAR College iRacing Series Visit Myrtle Beach 120 at Charlotte

Rutgers University driver Daniel Buttafuoco took the lead from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Oumar Diallo with 11 laps to go, and hung on to score the top finish in Thursday night’s eNASCAR College iRacing Series Visit Myrtle Beach 120 from the virtual Charlotte Motor Speedway. One of just 40 drivers who qualified to represent their university through a two week-long Time Attack event, Buttafuoco qualified third for the race and ran up front through nearly the whole race, extending his lead to more than a second over Diallo at the finish.

Austin Farr, Brandon McKissick, and Matt Kemp completed the top five, each overcoming starting spots in the back half of the field to get up front; McKissick jumped a race-best 32 spots from the 36th starting position. Despite a race that ran under the green flag for almost the whole way, with both of its caution periods wrapping up in the first 20 laps, 24 of the race’s starters managed to stay on the lead lap at the finish through green flag pit stops.

2021 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series runner-up Logan Clampitt qualified on the pole and traded the lead with Andre Castro and Buttafuoco early, but he would miss a shift on the final restart and take contact that spun him into the infield and ended his hopes of claiming the win for Saddleback Community College. Instead, he would settle for a 26th place finish, one lap down. The best finishing driver with premier-level eNASCAR experience would end up being UNC-Charlotte’s Santiago Tirres, who raced for Letarte Esports in 2020, finishing 20th.

The spring portion of the eNASCAR College iRacing Series continues with a 30-lap race on April 27 at Watkins Glen International. As with the previous two events, iRacing will host a two-week Time Attack on April 10-24, with the top 40 times among eligible drivers earning a spot in the big show. The Charlotte event drew 374 entries from more than 250 colleges and universities looking to take their share of this year’s $50,000 overall scholarship pool.
