Celsius Holdings, maker of the leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS, will be partnering with NASCAR Cup Series Driver Michael McDowell for the April 5th Bristol Motor Speedway iRacing Series Race. “I think that this weekend’s Pro Invitational Series race from virtual Bristol Motor Speedway is going to require a lot of concentration and stamina. Some people might think that just because this is a virtual race, that it will be relatively easy to compete in. However, the fact of the matter is that it still takes a lot of focus to be able to push you car to its limits, while trying your best not to crash with 35 other cars all around you.” said McDowell.

Activision Blizzard announced deals with Akshon Esports and HyperX as partners for Overwatch League. HyperX will act as the official memory partner of the league. Akshon Esports will now provide highlights of league matches.
