There is no “I” in team, but there is in Racing
The Charlotte Phoenix are proud to announce our entrance into iRacing. Our debut in the space will be in the Xfinity series with James Bickford, a local iRacing professional within the circuit. James will be competing in the Monday Night Racing League, a professional esports iRacing League featuring top NASCAR drivers, crew members, and media members throughout motorsports. Races will be held every Monday and produced by Podium eSports on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.
iRacing is a growing space with more professional and semi-professional drivers joining each season. With a large bump in the past year, and many professional NASCAR races being held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the popularity and viewership of the various iRacing leagues have been growing significantly. The Charlotte Phoenix are extremely excited to venture into this growing space with James leading the way.
