iRacing Throwback Cup Debuts This Weekend!

In 2020, iRacing unleashed two of the top cars and one of the most beloved tracks from one of NASCAR’s premier eras by releasing Dale Earnhardt’s 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Bill Elliott’s 1987 Ford Thunderbird, and the historic North Wilkesboro Speedway.
