Glad to see the initial issues are fixed! I've done a few races here now, both serious and for fun (ex. Daihatsu Midget-II one-make), and it's an excellent adaptation of the oval. Lots of attention to detail you'll notice most during replays/photo mode, and the track surfacing feels appropriate. Easy recommendation.
Hi! Track is perfect but i have a question... What nascar mod did you use in the pictures?
With 1.01 system no longer crashes. Would like to have some fans etc in the stands.

Thanks for the great work and solving the crashing issues
Unfortunately it's still crashing for me.
Looking great now, thank you!
Works now with v1.01
Thanks for the fix!
Thanks for the update. It works perfectly now.
Thank you for all the improvements
Excellent track! Probably the most attention to detail in the track surface of any oval made for AC. Latest update fixed the crashing issues I was having before.
Unfortunately, it crashes on my machine. I am hoping for an update.

Please try it out now! I think it is fixed.
Also crashing for me. First version worked great. The next two did not.

Easily the best short track for Assetto Corsa (maybe the best short track in the world). Thank you so much for this!

Wow! We can only hope to live up that with the 1994, 1972, and 1954 versions too.
When i select this track, AC crash, i have the last CM.
Thanks anyway. This track works for some people.

AWESOME!!!
Nice Track. The only criticism: Over 550 MB for a short oval seems to me to be not yet optimally optimized. But it runs fine on my Machine even in 4k. My problem memory space 10TB all full. Life is Hard.

Thanks!

We use 4K textures with our tracks, so the file sizes are going to be larger then those who decide a 4k texture is not worth the additional fidelity.
Great stuff! One issue I'm having with this version of the track (not present on the 1994 version) is the first 2 spots inside line on the grid don't move at race start.

More great stuff from THE best mod creators in the AC community! this tracks pairs very well with my Sundrop #3 livery!

Thanks! We will look into the AI lines and see what we can do for the 1.0 update.
Great looking track, the detail in the infield and the crowds creates a realistic race day feel. Races great in a variety of cars. Thank you.

As always, stellar work from the folks at HSS.

Our Champion tier supporters vote and chose our upcoming projects. Currently the 1972 Milwaukee Mile track (including roval layout) is the next track we are developing. Next month we will hold a vote to decide the project after 1972 Milwaukee.

We focus on historic tracks, although if a track isn't to difficult to make the modern version we do like to also include that as well (such as with NWS here).
