NASCAR gave iRacing a whirl Sunday afternoon, and fans ate it up.

The COVID-19 outbreak has forced NASCAR, like many other professional sports leagues in the United States, to seek an alternative way to race. It prompted NASCAR to devise a multi-week eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series, allowing racers to compete online instead.

The series began Sunday at a virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway, featuring some pretty flashy graphics and an impressive broadcast. Fans (both big and small) took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

(Hint: They all loved it.)

We can’t wait to see what the next race brings, and it seems like the fans can’t either.
