iRacing.com has added Dover International Speedway to its ever growing catalogue of race tracks. Known as The Monster Mile, Dover is a real beast of a race track, exactly one mile in length and featuring 24 degree banked turns – not to mention a 46 foot tall, muscle-bound, statue outside the gates named “Miles the Monster.” One of only two tracks on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit paved with concrete, Dover has been a fixture on the NASCAR schedule since 1969 with a list of winners that reads like a Who’s Who of NASCAR including Bobby Allison and Richard Petty, who each won seven times at Dover. Dover is also unique in that the track is part of a larger sports and entertainment complex that includes a hotel, gaming casino and harness racing track. But it’s the mechanical ponies – as in the 750+ horsepower NASCAR Sprint Cup machines and their sibling Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series racers – that grab the attention of motorsports fans twice a year. Up to 135,000 people from the Mid-Atlantic and beyond flock to the track for two big NASCAR weekends in the Spring and Fall. Now, thanks to iRacing’s three dimensional laser-scanning technology, its members can also enjoy racing on the Monster Mile
