The regular season is split up into three segments. Segment 2 will have drivers and teams tackling the following circuit: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Talladega Superspeedway, Iowa Speedway, and Atlanta Motor Speedway.

As the first two races clash with NASCAR's planned midweek races as the Cup Series returns to action, the Pro League will shift to Thursday evenings for those events.

Bolstered by the efforts of Arnold and Buttafuoco, Germain Gaming leads the team standings with 205 points to Chip Ganassi Gaming's 195. The Wood Brothers are third with 179 points.

The JTG Daugherty Throttlers and Leavine Family Gaming round out the top-five.

This upcoming race will go green at 8 p.m. EST and will be streamed live on Motorsport.tv. It can also be viewed at NASCARHeat.com/Live, Facebook.com/NASCARHeat or Twitch.tv/704nascarheat
