iRacing 2020 Season 2 Patch 8 Hotfix 2

  • Vehicle branding has been updated.

Dirt Midget

Track

  • New track added: North Wilkesboro Speedway, an asphalt oval, has been added to the digital landscape of iRacing!
    • The dream of North Wilkesboro Speedway began in the mid-1940s, when Enoch Staley found inspiration in a stock car race that Bill France had promoted in South Carolina before the formation of NASCAR. The story goes that Staley and his partners ran out of money to create their perfect oval, leaving the track with an uphill slope on the backstretch, and a downhill slope to the finish. Such was born one of the most unique short tracks in NASCAR history, a .625-mile oval that hosted the premier Cup Series twice a year until 1996. From the second that last checkered flag fell, race fans have clamored for the return of North Wilkesboro, and now they’ll get their chance to actually drive it on iRacing. The track has been digitally restored to its 1987 state, giving iRacers the opportunity to go back in time and relive the iconic North Carolina short track as it existed in its heyday.
  • Add a piece of history to your iRacing content! Purchase North Wilkesboro Speedway from the iRacing Store.
  • Several vehicle setups have been updated for this track.
