The Retro 500 is Podium eSports’ tribute to the Winston Cup era of stock car racing and returns to the calendar for 2021 after a one-year hiatus. Utilizing iRacing’s 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and Ford Thunderbird at Darlington Raceway, drivers will compete in qualifier races throughout August in order to earn their place in the 367-lap, 500-mile feature race on the evening of Labor Day. The winner will earn $500 in prize money and the bragging rights that come with victory in one of virtual stock car racing’s ultimate tests of skill.
