Track Infos from Wikipedia :
Texas Motor Speedway is a speedway located in the northernmost portion of the U.S. city of Fort Worth, Texas – the portion located in Denton County, Texas. The reconfigured track measures 1.44 miles (2.32 km) with banked 20° in turns 1 and 2 and banked 24° in turns 3 and 4. Texas Motor Speedway is a quad-oval design, where the front straightaway juts outward slightly. The track layout is similar to Atlanta Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. The track is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., the same company that owns Atlanta and Charlotte Motor Speedways, as well as the short-track Bristol Motor Speedway.
The speedway has been managed since its inception by racing promoter Eddie Gossage.
Based on qualifying speeds in 2004, 2005, and 2006 (with Brian Vickers shattering the qualifying record at Texas with a speed of 196.235 mph (315.810 km/h) in the 2006 Dickies 500 qualifying), the Texas Motor Speedway was once considered the fastest non-restrictor plate track on the NASCAR circuit, with qualifying speeds in excess of 192 mph (309 km/h) and corner entry speeds over 200 mph (320 km/h). However, as the tracks’ respective racing surfaces continue to wear, qualifying speeds at Atlanta have become consistently faster than at Texas (2005 and 2006). Brian Vickers holds the NASCAR qualifying record at TMS. In 2006, he posted a 196.235 mph (315.810 km/h) speed. Elliott Sadler beat the record before Brian, qualifying in the 49/50th spot. Being the last person out on the track, Brian nipped Elliott Sadler’s qualifying time. The NASCAR records still fall short of the all-time TMS qualifying record though. Driving a Lola Ford Champ Car, Kenny Brack took pole for the aborted Firestone Firehawk 600, with an average speed of 233.447 mph in 2001.
Two racetracks formerly on the Winston Cup (now Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series) schedule were closed to make room for Texas Motor Speedway’s two race dates, with the North Wilkesboro Speedway being bought by TMS owner Bruton Smith and New Hampshire International Speedway owner Bob Bahre. The track was closed with one of the track’s two dates going to both new owners. The North Carolina Speedway in Rockingham, North Carolina was also sold to Smith as a result of the Ferko lawsuit with the track’s one remaining date also being handed over to Texas.
Texas Motor Speedway is home to two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races: the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 and the AAA Texas 500, as well as two NASCAR Xfinity Series races, the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 and the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge and the IndyCar Series race, the Firestone 600. The track also hosts two NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series races, the Vankor 350 and SpeedyCash.com 400 (which takes place on the same weekend as the IndyCar Firestone 600).
The SIM Version :
Another rFactor conversion with no readme. Working pace car, rolling starts, rain reflections, flag marshals – everything except night lights. Still haven’t figured them out yet. If you find any bugs, just PM me at NoGrip or leave me a message in the forums.
I would like to thank RacerM for his Tutorial and David Noonan for 3Dsimed and his tutorials.
