Mad Cowie for the original NR2003 Road Course and unknown original authors.
If you made this track for GPL or some earlier sim : I hope you like this conversion as I did research for original author and didn’t come up with anyones name except Madcowie.
But I would like to give full credit for this layout to whom deserves it :

– Strava for his GTL Groove tool
– Joe03 from Jnsonline.com for teaching me to do my own nightlighting.
– Zarker99 For the awewsome Fog effect during rain.
– See original readme for the oval version and their was no readme for the Roadcourse version.
Track Infos from Wiki :
New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a 1.058-mile (1.703 km) oval speedway located in Loudon, New Hampshire, which has hosted NASCAR racing annually since the early 1990s, as well as the longest-running motorcycle race in North America, the Loudon Classic. Nicknamed “The Magic Mile”, the speedway is often converted into a 1.6-mile (2.6 km) road course, which includes much of the oval.
The track was originally the site of Bryar Motorsports Park before being purchased and redeveloped by Bob Bahre. The track is currently one of eight major NASCAR tracks owned and operated by Speedway Motorsports.
The track opened as New Hampshire International Speedway in June 1990, after nine months of construction following the Bahre family’s purchase of the Bryar Motorsports Park. The existing road circuit was redeveloped into a multi-purpose track, with NASCAR added to the popular Loudon Classic motorcycle, WKA go-kart and SCCA races on the complex. It was the largest speedway in New England, and later expansion has made it the largest sports and entertainment venue of any type in the region. Its construction was extremely unusual for a race track, in that it was designed and constructed without consulting engineers, and using just one surveyor (whose primary job was to plant stakes) to help. NASCAR made its debut at the track in July 1990, with a Busch Series race won by Tommy Ellis. For three years, the Busch Series hosted a pair of races at the track each year.

Even thougth both layouts are the same track, their orgins come from different games. Their is major differences between the 2 tracks. It’s almost as if they are differnt tracks all together instead of just different layouts. If you find anything that needs my attention please PM me here at NoGrip or leave me a message in the forums.
Have Fun !
