After a successful first season that saw over one-million views and multiple live events hosted, the eNASCAR Heat Pro League (eNHPL) has announced its second season will start in February.
With a prize pool of over $200,000 this year, the eNHPL will once again allow players on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 qualify for a chance to represent one of 14 official teams in the league.
Draft qualifying is open from now until February 26, and players can register via the league’s official site.
The Pro League Qualifier is now live at @CLTMotorSpdwy until 2/5.

After draft qualifying closes, racers will be invited to a three-race preseason that begins on March 4. These three racers will give teams and fans a chance to scout the crop of hopeful drivers ahead of the league’s draft in April.

As far as season structure is concerned, eNHPL is doing things a bit differently for year two. The schedule will feature a more diverse group of courses, and will be split into three four-race segments. Each race will have one driver per system (Xbox/PS4) qualify for a spot in the league’s championship race that summer. In addition to weekly winners qualifying, a wildcard race winner will also be entered into the championship lineup later this year.
For those that either don’t remember or just don’t know, it was Stewart-Haas Racing that took home the inaugural championship last September after beating Leavine Family Racing on a tiebreaker of total laps led.
More details on season two of the eNHPL will be announced within the next few weeks.
