Bristol Motor Speedway is known as the “World’s Fastest Half Mile,” but what happens when its famous high-banked concrete racing surface is covered with dirt?
For NASCAR, we’ll find out at the end of March when the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series visit the dirt-covered half-mile bullring for the first time ever. But before that, the transformed track arrives in the virtual world.
That’s right: Dirt Bristol is coming to iRacing on March 9.

Coinciding with the sim-racing platform’s Season 2 release build, the newer, dirtier Bristol will be available to iRacing members nearly three weeks before NASCAR stars turn their first laps.
iRacing’s Dirt Bristol also marks the first stop on the schedule for the eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series’ second season, where NASCAR stars will get their first glimpse of racing on the remodeled track March 24 on FS1.
So, get those virtual dirt tires ready for next week. It’s not every day you’ll get the chance to visit a new track before NASCAR’s in town.
