PHOENIX, ARIZONA - NOVEMBER 9, 2019 - The North American Collegiate League (NACL) hosted their first live event this past weekend at ISM Raceway during NASCAR's 2020 Championship weekend. Four professional NASCAR drivers teamed up with students from Arizona State University collegiate e-sports team to compete in a NASCAR Heat 4 tournament. This event was hosted right before the Xfinity Series races.

NBC Sports, hosted by NBC Sports' Rutledge Wood, also had a live segment about the event highlighting NACL and the opportunities it gives collegiate gamers. In addition to being on TV, 1580AM The Fanatic had NACL, joined by NASCAR Driver Anthony Alfredo, on its show to speak about the event and the future of esports in NASCAR on live radio.

Each NASCAR driver was paired up with 2 collegiate students to form 4 different teams to compete against each other. Each team was given practice time before the races where each professional NASCAR driver was able to coach the students on NASCAR and race strategies to get the fastest lap time.

After 3 intense races between all teams, Team Mayer came out victorious, sweeping the board with 1st place finishes from everyone on the team.
