Late pass leads Jimmy Mullis to eNASCAR All-Star win

Jimmy Mullis rode the No. 46 Toyota to a win in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series All-Star Race on Tuesday at a virtual Nashville Superspeedway.

Mullis got past Corey Vincent in the No. 3 Chevrolet with a late move. It was his second consecutive victory after he prevailed at a virtual New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 13.

The All-Star win, which doesn’t count toward the season point standings, was worth $35,000 in prize money.

“It’s huge,” said Mullis, who is from Midland, N.C. “Man, that was a lot of fun. I didn’t think I’d even have a shot at it with the way everything was playing out. This is huge, man. It’s crazy the momentum we’ve had the last few races. Just hope to keep it going.”

Mullis added, “I really hope I didn’t wreck Corey. We were just racing really hard there at the end. I really hope that Corey ain’t too mad.”

Vincent received $1,000 as the runner-up. The Louisville resident said, “Honestly, I’ve never driven this car or this track, so I’m a little surprised we got second. At the end, I thought we had it. ... But Jimmy, ... he got to my left rear and just stalled me out. ...

“We came together. It’s tough. This was fun, but definitely lost out on some money there.”

The points series resumes next week on the virtual Watkins Glen road course on Aug. 3.
