Team 18 driver Scott Pye is giving back to fans watching the Cash Converters Supercars Eseries.

Pye will be conducting weekly giveaways on his Twitch channel.

The 31-year-old contested the second round of the All Stars competition last Wednesday and recorded a personal-best finish of fifth at Pocono.

Pye is streaming his online racing live on his Twitch account each week and is offering his subscribers a chance to win from a weekly prize pool.

He was keen to fire up his streaming account again following a positive reaction from fans during last year’s Eseries.

“Last year on Twitch was awesome fun,” Pye said.

“I had a lot of people subscribe to my channel, and I really appreciated it because it really supports me and the time that I put into the Eseries.

“This year, I wanted to try and reward people for subscribing.

"If you are a subscriber to my channel, I've been drawing out of a bowl every week, for prizes to give away, that some partners have come on board to support us with.

“I put everyone’s name in a bowl, and I pick random names out of the subscriber list and give away prizes.

“We have $50 fuel vouchers from BP that they've been kind enough to give us, so I'll be doing a couple of those each week.

“It’s just something small to give back and hopefully, it's a thank you to my fans as well. Hopefully, it's something that makes people happy during a tough time.”

Pye has been clocking up the hours between Eseries rounds to improve his performance.

He has teamed up with Dunlop Super2 Series driver Jayden Ojeda and iRacing expert Justin Ruggier for practice sessions.

It paid off for the Holden driver at Pocono last week, with Pye qualifying eighth at the 'Tricky Triangle'.

He ran with the leading group throughout the 23-lapper, battling for leading positions with Chaz Mostert and podium finisher Cameron Waters.

In a first for the online competition, All Stars drivers will compete in Next Gen NASCAR hardware for Round 3 of the series.

The All Stars drivers will shift from their regular Ford Mustangs and Holden Commodore ZBs to Next Gen NASCAR-spec Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros around the iconic Daytona oval circuit.

The Eseries will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 506, Kayo, 7Plus, as well as streamed on Supercars’ Twitch, Facebook and YouTube channels.

Qualifying begins at 7pm AEST and will be broadcast live on Facebook, YouTube and Twitch.

The live 90-minute television coverage of races will begin at 7:30pm AEST and will be broadcast on Fox Sports, Kayo, 7Plus, Sky NZ, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch.
