Now in its fourth edition, the Podium 500 is one of iRacing’s largest tournament-style events at the virtual Daytona International Speedway and one of the largest independent special events in all of iRacing. In its first three years, over 500+ drivers have set times in Time Trials and races through the gauntlet of Qualifying Day for a shot at a place in Sunday afternoon’s 43-car, 200-lap, 500-mile feature race. The Podium 500 has paid out nearly $20,000 in prize money across the first three editions of the event. All Podium 500 events will be broadcast LIVE on the Podium eSports Twitch channel at
