Just like the series’ first visit to Lucas Oil Raceway last month, Mitchell deJong made good on bad luck from July to take a dominant iRacing victory. He led Sindre Setsaas and Jake Hewlett across the line, as Hewlett nipped Steliyan Chepilevski for third. Click here for the full recap!

Driver Profile: Steliyan Chepilevski

Week after week, Chepilevski has been a reliable force at the front of the Red Bull GRC iRacing pack. A frequent heat winner and podium threat, he’s second in the overall standings, and one of the most likely competitors to challenge Mitchell deJong for the checkered flag on any given week.

Feeling confident? See if you can beat Steliyan’s top lap times in an iRacing Supercar:
