Since short course racing has been postponed (until next month at best), Christopher will get behind the wheel and computer screen(s) to take on his first simulated short course race event! He was invited to race the Jim Beaver eSports eShort Course World Cup Presented by General Tire.This online, iRacing, event has some of the biggest names in racing like Travis Pastrana, Greg Biffle, Alexander Rossi and many more all racing for the $2500 purse!
"The single-night event will see drivers take on two distinctly different vehicle classes, the all-wheel drive Pro 4 and rear-wheel drive Pro 2 machines. The two off road tracks will each see two rounds, one in each class, with drivers quickly swapping truck types between main events. Beaver will join eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series play-by-play voice Evan Posocco, and off-road television personality Tiffany Stone in the booth in a two-hour broadcast produced by RaceSpot TV.
Each event will feature a fixed setup, while entrants will score points for each race as in a normal season-long championship. The top three finishers at the end of the evening will split a $1,000 cash purse: $500 for first, $300 for second, and $200 for third. An additional prize of $500 is on offer to any driver that can break out from the pack and sweep all four main events. In addition General Tire will be giving a new set of tires (valued at $1,000) to the overall eShort Course World Cup Champion." -From Jim Beaver's Press Release
"This is such a cool opportunity to race online with some of the huge names in racing like Travis Pastrana, other off-road racers and a handful of professional Sim racers! I only have a few hours of practice and it is very different from my ProLite. I've got so much to learn in the next couple days but I'm going to put as much time in as possible before the race on Saturday."
**Watch Live Saturday April 11th @ 3PM (PT)**
(We will be live streaming from Christopher's Sim set up for the first time)

About Christopher Polvoorde & CP Racing Team
Christopher Polvoorde was born on July 28th, 2000 and raised in the Racing mecca of Southern, CA. From a young age, Christopher had an adventurous spirit and a passion for the outdoors and racing. That passion leads Christopher’s life to this day where you can find him chasing sunsets year around on the hills of Mammoth Mt or the waters of the Colorado River. It helps being surrounded by a team of experts including Christopher’s father Chip Polvoorde, who handles anything and everything, Crew Chief Jimmy Davidson who provides the fastest truck on the course, week in and week out, as well as driving coach and spotter Cory Kruseman, who works with Christopher on his race craft. With Christopher’s natural speed and a team like this, expectations are high. The CP94 team returned to racing in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and added the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League for 2019 where Christopher swept the whole series winning all 7 series races and the additional Red Bull Pro Lite Championship race making it a perfect 8 for 8 in the Midwest. With all that Christopher has going on it is hard to imagine but he is also a full-time sophomore college student at The University of San Diego on an academic scholarship after finishing high school with a 4.5 GPA. The future is bright for Christopher who takes it all in stride focusing on working hard and enjoying the ride.
