Penultimate eNASCAR Heat Pro League Segment 2 round gears up

The penultimate race of Segment 2 in the eNASCAR Heat Pro League season will take place Thursday evening at a virtual Iowa Speedway

From the high banks of Talladega to the short oval of Iowa, the eNASCAR Heat Pro League in association with Motorsport Games rolls on.

Fresh off their wins at the Alabama superspeedway, JTG Daugherty Throttlers pilot Justin Brooks (Xbox One) and Team Penske eSports driver Corey Rothgeb (Playstation 4) snagged pole position for their respective races tonight.

Brooks has already secured his place in the postseason with his Segment 1 performance, but remains a threat for wins every week.

Brooks' lap of 22.813s was just barely enough to top Luis Zaiter's 22.813s.

Only 0.001 seconds separated the two drivers. Championship leader Daniel Buttafuoco timed in third. Diego Alvarado and Brian Tedeschi rounded out the top-five.

Rothgeb, who currently leads the Segment 2 standings, ran a lap of 22.846s and was 0.039s quicker than Brandyn Gritton's 22.885s.

Mike Braas will start third after just missing out on the win at Talladega with Cody Giles filling out the second row. Kyle Arnold is looking to usurp Rothgeb's position atop the championship and will do so from fifth on the grid tonight.
