Nick Ottinger’s headed to Miami to race for six figures.
After a wild overtime finish, Ottinger, the William Byron eSports driver, brought home the checkered flag in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series playoff race from Kansas Speedway, clinching a spot in the series’ championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 2.
Ottinger started on pole and looked to have the speed needed to secure his place in the title battle – but Keegan Leahy had other ideas.
Ottinger went on to win the race – the 16th of his career, breaking a tie with Ryan Luza – and clinch a spot in the Championship 4 alongside Bobby Zalenski, who won last week’s race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
Logan Clampitt, a non-playoff driver, surged late to finish second, while Zalenski, Luza, and Guariglia (non-playoffs) rounded out the top five. Other playoff contenders included Jimmy Mullis (sixth), Ray Alfalla (seventh), Garrett Lowe (eighth), and Conti (12th). Keegan Leahy finished 32nd.
