The 1987 NASCAR Cup Series season continues to grow on iRacing: get ready for the iconic Pontiac Grand Prix!
Expanding upon the 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Ford Thunderbird, and Buick Lesabre (which were released in February last year) along with the inclusion of the North Wilkesboro Speedway from that season, all accessible on the subscription-based sim racing platform. The awaited addition of the Pontiac Grand Prix brings us one step closer to the complete experience, leaving just the Oldsmobile Delta to join the lineup.
In September of 2022, Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted a tweet showcasing Richard Petty’s #43 Petty Enterprises entry adorned with the STP backing. This post sparked speculation about the potential scanning of the car for integration into iRacing. A day later, an image emerged featuring what seemed to be an iRacing team member employing scanning equipment on the vehicle. During that season, Richard Petty secured an eighth-place position in the championship standings. The championship title, on the other hand, was claimed by Dale Earnhardt from Richard Childress Racing, driving a Chevrolet. Twelve months down the line, the model is gearing up for its Season 4 debut scheduled for the upcoming month, as indicated by a recent social media update from the creators.
