SIM500 TRANSERVICE CUP SERIES COMES TO PODIUM eSPORTS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 14, 2020) – Podium eSports has announced an agreement with the Sim500 eSports Racing League to broadcast the remainder of the 2020 Sim500 Transervice Cup Series season, beginning with the April 20 race at Richmond Raceway. Broadcasts of the Sim500 Transervice Cup Series will air on Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on the Podium eSports Twitch channel.

Sim500 is the largest fixed-setup stock car league in iRacing, and their Transervice Cup Series is the most competitive and highest-profile of the eight series they offer to iRacing members. The series runs on Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET and mirrors the NASCAR Cup Series schedule with races of 50% length and an identical points system.

“We have wanted to work with Sim500 for some time now, and are incredibly excited to bring their premier series to twitch.tv/podiumesports,” said Podium eSports CEO James Pike. “The Sim500 Transervice Cup Series is a mainstay amongst fixed-setup Cup-style leagues on iRacing, and its drivers have long histories in the sim. We are eager to tell their stories and bring Sim500 to the iRacing community.”

“This new partnership with Podium eSports represents all the hard work of our admin team, sponsors, and members here at Sim500,” said Sim500 owner Joey Gattina. “We are very proud to now call Podium the home of the Transervice Cup Series now and into the future.”

All Sim500 Transervice Cup Series events will be broadcast on Podium eSports’ Twitch channel, which can be found at twitch.tv/podiumesports. For more information on Sim500, visit www.sim500.com.
