Bobby Zalenski rolled over the rest of the field on Tuesday night, leading all 30 laps en route to a victory at a virtual Chicago Street Course as part of the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series.

Zalenski has been dominant on the streets of Chicago, as he won this same race a year ago. Tuesday’s victory was also his second of the season on a road course.

Even though Zalenski stayed in control throughout Tuesday’s race, his No. 18 Toyota was constantly challenged by Parker White and Steven Wilson, who finished second and third, respectively. White came in 1.461 seconds behind Zalenski.

“Shout-out to him,” Zalenski said of White. “He pushed me last year, pushed me this year, and I don’t know how I was able to stay in front of him on the first lap there. … Thankfully I was able to stay ahead of him, and then he just pressured me the whole race cause he was faster — or at least it felt like it was faster.”

Zalenski, who resides in Fresno, Calif., now has 16 career wins, the fourth most in series history.

Despite the runner-up finish, White was still pleased with his performance.

“Overall, it was quite a good race,” said White, who lives in Norridgewock, Maine. “I really don’t think there was anything I could’ve done different there at the end.”

White drove the No. 53 Chevrolet, while Wilson was in the No. 10 Ford. Vicente Salas, in the No. 11 Toyota, came in fourth, and Casey Kirwan, in the No. 77 Chevrolet, rounded out the top five.

The series continues on July 16 at a virtual Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
