MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 18, 2021) – Longtime iRacing proponent Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be among the drivers when the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series makes its 2021 debut on the dirt at the virtual Bristol Motor Speedway on March 24, driving the No. 88 Degree Chevrolet.

The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series debuted last season during the initial pandemic slowdown and features a 10-race season that complements NASCAR’s real-life racing schedule. The mid-week competition will broadcast the first five races of the season in prime time on FOX Sports 1, and NBC Sports will air the final five with schedule and details to be announced at a later date.

The green-and-black paint scheme for the No. 88 Degree Chevrolet will be on at Bristol, which has seen its concrete surface covered in racing dirt for this season’s spring race. Additional paint schemes will be announced at a later date.

One common theme on all future paint schemes will be the addition of Walmart +. Walmart launched the new membership program last fall which brings in-store and online benefits together to save customers money and time. Walmart+ has the reach of more than 4,700 stores, including 2,700 stores that offer delivery as fast as same day. Membership costs $98 per year or $12.95 per month and includes a 15-day free trial period. Members receive unlimited free delivery from stores, fuel discounts and access to tools that make shopping faster for families.

Unilever brands will be incorporated on each of the paint schemes through the Walmart + program, and customers can purchase their favorite Unilever brands like Degree, Hellmann’s, and Dove Men+Care through Walmart +. Walmart will continue to have delivery options with a per-delivery transaction fee so customers can choose the service that’s best for them.
