TUCSON, Arizona — Tucson's Alex Bowman used an overtime finish to win the eNascar iRacing Pro Invitational Geico 70 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Bowman's No. 88 car led the overtime restart and held a hard-charging Corey LaJoie and Ryan Preece. It's Bowman's first iRacing win.

Drivers race from their cars in simulators as the sports world is on hold due to the coronavirus. Next Sunday, the series heads to the virtual Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway.
