About

What is the Firecracker 400? 

 

The Firecracker 400 was a July 4th holiday tradition in NASCAR for more than 50 years. The OGs of NASCAR in the 1970s and 1980s drove their ill-handling race cars during the daytime heat of Florida in July in a challenging 400 mile race at the historic Daytona International Speedway.

 

The esports version of this event, Created by NASCAR drivers Landon Cassill and Parker Kligerman, will be a recreation of the classic race on the iRacing platform. The event will be an ode to stock car racing’s past, with an open entry iRacing race using the recently released 1987 stock cars at Legacy Daytona International Speedway (2007). The event prize pool will range from $12,500 dependent on sponsorship, as racers from around the world will compete over a three-week span to qualify for the Firecracker 400. 

 

Each stage of the event will be broadcasted LIVE leading to the main event broadcast that will have time period correct graphics and multiple produced pieces highlighting great moments from the late 80s Firecracker 400 races. 



How many racers will compete? 

 

Competitors will be required to pay an entry fee to enter the event. We are expecting  340+ entries attempting to qualify for the event. The first stage of the event will be a series of qualifying and heat races (June 18-19) that will narrow the field down to 84 competitors. 

 

The top 84 will then attempt to qualify through a period-correct format mimicking the “Two-Round” qualifying format that NASCAR used in the late 1980s (June 24-25). The top 43 will race in the Firecracker 400 (July 1). The bottom 43 will race in the Firecracker 200, a 200-mile race the day before the Firecracker 400.  Two alternates will be also selected from position 87 and 88 from Two-Round qualifying.
