While the crew in Bedford continue to tease the iRacing userbase with small snippets of dirt oval racing content, the technology already exists in rFactor 2, and it’s one step closer to a public release. An anonymous user from the small but productive 4Chan sim racing community has provided the forum with an updated preview of his 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series mod – this time featuring a welcome surprise. A dirt oval configuration of the Joesville short track will be bundled with the release, and a graphically enhanced version of Eldora Speedway will soon follow.
Many high quality dirt oval racing mods exist for the original rFactor, but the overall complexity of rFactor 2 has prevented several teams such as BOZ and DWD from making the transition into the newer platform. Provided the Camping World Truck Series content can accurately depict the various nuances of loose surface oval racing, the flood gates may be opened for Sprint Cars and Late Models as well.
