Turns one and two have been reshaped ahead of night three. Track officials consulted with iRacing to compare data to the 2018 version of the track.
Turns one and two was scanned again. It pointed out that the inside berm was several feet off from the 2018 scan. Officials have since moved it around, closer to the 2018 version. It’s pretty fascinating and we’re set for a brand new track on night three.
