Jimmy Mullis is returning to Richmond Raceway eSports for the second year after being part of the team’s inaugural season. 2018 was a record year for the for the North Carolina native, who earned his first career victory and four Top 5 finishes that landed him 11th in the season rankings. He has participated in sim racing for six years, and will look to continue to develop his racing career as he eyes his first championship.
“2019 is going to be a huge year for iRacing in many aspects, especially with the growth of NASCAR eSports over the last two years” said Mullis. “It is a privilege to be working with Richmond Raceway eSports because of the experience they bring. It is so great to see how much NASCAR eSports has grown in what seems like such a short period of time, and the places it is headed are remarkable. I'm very excited and fortunate to be partnered with such a great program once again this year, and I believe with my two years of experience in the series, 2019 can be my best year yet. I feel very confident in my ability to represent Richmond Raceway at a very high level in 2019. This is going to be an awesome year for iRacing, and I hope at the end of the year Richmond Raceway eSports will come out on top.”
