Tuesday night represents our first chance to see the stars of the 2020 eNASCAR iRacing World Championship in action, as this year’s 40-car field lines up at Daytona International Speedway for the non-points Clash. 50 laps are on the docket as a number of new teams make their first start, while drivers feel out their superspeedway setups in preparation for next week’s season opener at Daytona.

Last year’s Championship Four are back, but three of them (Zack Novak, Keegan Leahy, and Bobby Zalenski) will all be with new teams for 2020 after winter free agency reshaped the driver roster. All told, while only nine of this year’s drivers weren’t in the field last year, just under half of the 2019 driver-team combinations have returned intact for the new season. That’s in part due to a number of new additions to the team roster, including Denny Hamlin Racing, William Byron eSports, KLR eSports, and Stewart-Haas Gaming.

This year’s eNASCAR iRacing World Championship driver roster is as follows:
