Kansas Speedway

THIS TRACK HAS NOT YET BEEN RELEASED BY iRACING.

Kansas Speedway is a 1.5 (2.4 km) tri-oval race track in Kansas City, Kansas. The speedway was built in 2001 and currently hosts two annual NASCAR race weekends. The speedway is owned and operated by International Speedway Corporation (ISC).

Track paving began in September 2000, and construction of the speedway was completed in early 2001. Lights were added to the speedway from mid 2010 to early 2011, with the track reconfiguring in 2011. Some of the changes in the reconfiguration were the addition of a road course in the infield, repaving the oval, and adding variable banking. The banking in the turns was increased from a uniform 15 degrees to a progressive 17-20 degrees.

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
