Today, JR Motorsports announced that the No. 8 Chevrolet driven by Josh Berry will be sporting the colors of iRacing, the world’s premier motorsport simulation, in the NASCAR Xfinity Series return to Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, June 19. This announcement marks a continuation of the relationship between Berry and iRacing, as the pair have been partnered together across the Late Model divisions dating back to 2010.
“It’s great to have iRacing come on board and for us to be running this awesome scheme in Nashville,” said Berry. “They’ve been a great partner to work with over these last years and it means a lot to me to be able to continue this on to the NASCAR Xfinity Series level.”
The scheme for the No. 8 iRacing Chevrolet also carries special significance. Turning back the clock to 2003, the familiar red, white and blue iRacing colors reflect a modern adaptation of that driven by the fictional Fred Jones in the original NASCAR Racing 2003 Season PC simulation. The popular sim has been credited as one of the inspirations behind the creation of iRacing in 2008.
Berry and the No. 8 iRacing Chevrolet are set to hit the track at Nashville on Saturday, June 19 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Channel 90.
