Max Scherzer to throw bullpen session Tuesday

  Max Scherzer to throw bullpen session Tuesday The ace has already tossed 11 Grapefruit League innings, so his arm might already be built up enough should he get through Tuesday’s bullpen without any ill effects. It is also possible that the Mets might opt for some extra caution and either push Scherzer’s first start back at least a few days or maybe even sideline him with a backdated IL visit just to be completely sure that the 37-year-old is fully ready.

eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series returns with new tracks in 2022 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series returns with new tracks in 2022 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — New tracks are set to debut in the 13th season of the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series with drivers competing on virtual circuits that more closely mirror the NASCAR Cup Series schedule. Six tracks make a first-time appearance on the 19-race calendar, including the much-anticipated Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which opens the season with an exhibition race Feb. 1.

“We‘re raising the bar with the most competitive virtual racing in the world and leaning into iRacing‘s technology to blur the lines between virtual and reality,” said Nick Rend, NASCAR’s managing director of gaming and esports. “The eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series has grown monumentally over the past two seasons with new investments made by teams, drivers and world-class partners. This season will be no different as we anticipate more intense competition among drivers testing their clout on new and historic tracks alike.”

The LA Coliseum virtual exhibition race will run in conjunction with the NASCAR Cup Series‘ preseason debut at the same real-life venue on Feb. 6. iRacing played a vital role in the track‘s design with NASCAR Cup Series drivers and eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series competitors simulating test runs on different setups to develop its configuration for NASCAR.

In addition to the LA Coliseum, virtual events will also debut at the newly reconfigured Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Dirt Race, Dover International Speedway, World Wide Technology Raceway and Nashville Superspeedway. For the first time in its history, the series will conclude at Phoenix Raceway on Oct. 25.

New Mets ace Max Scherzer hopes to pitch Friday vs. Nationals

  New Mets ace Max Scherzer hopes to pitch Friday vs. Nationals Scherzer spent over six full seasons with the Nationals and helped them win the 2019 World Series before he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers last summer. He then signed a three-year contract worth $130 million with the Mets ahead of the lockout during the fall. As for deGrom, it's thought he will remain sidelined through at least the end of May. An elbow injury cost him the second half of the 2021 season, and he hasn't faced a live batter in a meaningful game since July 7.

“The 2022 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series season is shaping up to be one of our most exciting yet,” iRacing president Tony Gardner said. “With a refreshed schedule, led by our opening exhibition at the LA Coliseum, a track developed in iRacing, the pursuit of this year‘s championship will take some exciting new turns this year. We‘re excited to kick off the chase for one of the largest purses in sim racing, with well over $300,000 on the line, and look forward to crowning a champion in Phoenix!”

Competition will again be tight with 20 teams and 40 drivers contending for the championship. The 2021 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series champion, Keegan Leahy, returns to defend his title. Team owners including Denny Hamlin-Michael Jordan, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kansas City Chiefs player Kyle Long are securing drivers for the upcoming season. And professional esports organization Charlotte Phoenix will join the competition. Teams have begun to announce their 2022 driver lineups this week on Twitter.
