Davison Captures First eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series Win at Circuit of the Americas

Over the first three rounds of the 2021 eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series, James Davison had been one of the most dominant drivers not to take a victory. Running up front on the dirt banks of Bristol Motor Speedway and leading most of the series’ return to Talladega Superspeedway, it felt like only a matter of time until the Australian would break through with a win.

That time finally came on Wednesday evening. Much like Tuesday night’s eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series race, where Mitchell deJong led every lap, Davison ran away with the first road course event in Pro Invitational history at Circuit of the Americas. Yielding the top spot for only a handful of the race’s 32 laps thanks in part to the pit cycle, Davison thoroughly beat the field of top NASCAR Cup Series stars, posting a margin of victory of more than 18 seconds on Anthony Alfredo at race’s end.

William Byron was third, with Tyler Reddick and Chris Buescher completing the top five. Timmy Hill and Denny Hamlin would get into it heavily in the final laps of the race battling for sixth, with Hill prevailing as Hamlin went off track, while Josh Bilicki finished eighth, Ross Chastain charged from 30th on the grid to finish ninth, and 2021 Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell completed the top 10.

The closest that Davison came to any real peril was during mid-race pit stops, as the lapped car of Clint Bowyer made a late attempt at entering the pits and grazed Davison’s right side as he snuck past. However, Bowyer was far from the only driver to run into some sort of trouble on the famed Texas road course; of the 39 starters, only 23 would finish on the lead lap, with past series champions Brad Keselowski and Chase Elliott the first drivers out of the race after just two laps apiece.
