DriveSmart Warranty gives trip to Daytona to winners of online racing campaign
DriveSmart Warranty waved the checkered flag and online race winners will be going all the way to Daytona.
On Friday, the administrator of vehicle protection services announced contestant Tucker Minter and streamer Casey Kirwan were the grand prize winners of DriveSmart to Daytona Series. Each winner and a guest will be flown to watch the NASCAR Xfinity Series United Rentals 300 at Daytona International Speedway in Florida on Feb. 17.
The DriveSmart to Daytona Series consisted of five races where the winner was based off overall points. Minter ranked first in the series scoring 168 points in this iRacing series and won the final race in Homestead Miami Speedway.
Beginning the DriveSmart to Daytona Series, six influencers and iRacing drivers were selected to be team captains to pick contestants through recruitment rounds to show their skill sets off. The six team captains were Kirwan, Trey Normile, Jonathan Ramos, Ryan Vargas, Landon Huffman and Justin Yee.
Kirwan also had the overall winning team which won a $3,500 prize.
“We really wanted to give back to the people that are on the simulator and on the iRacing platform that are driving every day,” said Christopher Doyle, DriveSmart YouTube livestream host. “We are super excited to experience memories that’ll last forever with the winner and influencer at Daytona.”
In Daytona, the two grand prize winners will be able to experience the behind-the-scenes of a NASCAR pit and watch the race live in-action. The two winners are invited on a tour around the garage on Friday during practice.
