It was high honors for the University of Iowa’s Steven Wilson in the second semester of the eNASCAR College iRacing Series Powered by NACE Starleague, as he completed the four-race campaign with perfect marks after a win in Tuesday night’s Playseat 100 at Nashville Superspeedway. The 2022 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series Championship 4 driver didn’t get to outright dominate the night the way he has in some other events, but he did still manage to lead a race-high 33 of 85 laps on the way to another checkered flag.
Wilson qualified just .009 seconds behind fellow 2022 eNASCAR playoff driver Garrett Lowe, who led 29 laps of his own and never fell below eighth place in the running order. Wilson took the helm for the first time on Lap 21 and led up until the third caution of the night, which allowed the field to pit just after halfway. Lowe reclaimed the lead from Wilson in the pits, and another caution came out shortly after Wilson took it back, giving Lowe the opportunity to regain it once again by staying out.
Fellow eNASCAR veteran Anthony Burroughs would take the lead soon after the next restart, before Lowe himself would become the fifth caution on Lap 73. Will Norton would stay out in his own bid to steal the victory, but Wilson made quick work of him to retake the lead for good on Lap 78, and survived one more caution and overtime restart to complete the perfect semester ahead of Burroughs and Lowe.
