NASCAR Track News

Kansas Speedway: This track has now been scanned by the iRacing team. Immediately following the 2012 Spring race at Kansas Speedway, the track underwent a massive renovation project that included repaving of the existing track surface, reconfiguration of the oval (adding progressive banking), and the addition of a new infield road course. iRacing scanned the track following the Fall event, but no word when it will be released. 12/27
UPDATE: iRacing has released the first scan images of Kansas Speedway and mentioned that work is underway. No word yet when this track will be released. View Track Scan 1/4

Eldora Speedway: NASCAR will be visiting Eldora Speedway in 2013 with the Camping World Trucks. If this event is a success, pressure will be on iRacing to produce this track. Obviously, a lot of things would have to happen before something like this could happen in iRacing, but this could be just the extra push to bring dirt to iRacing. I wouldn’t expect iRacing to even consider scanning this track until it is determined if this is a successful event that will return beyond 2013. 12/28
