This track is a conversion from NR2003. Permission was given to us by the guys from PST, J.R. Franklin. The way we have the AI's and physics setup for this track, it works very well with Short Track mods like the Vintage Modifieds, and also the soon to be released Modified Tour mod, schedule to be released later this month.
