With all of NASCAR’s on-track action on hold because of safety precautions due to the COVID-19 outbreak, drivers took to the virtual raceway Sunday in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The race was broadcast on FS1 and the FOX Sports App and elicited a reaction across social media. Here are some of the highlights.

Hey @NASCAR. Do you know where the post-race media bullpen will be?
Think I‘ll open up my Instagram live after the event for media wanting to join in. Hopefully it‘s after I finish this thing in one piece…😊

The last time I went iRacing, there was a solar eclipse. So, yeah, two rare events. Don‘t miss this one!
