Virginia International Raceway would like to thank their fans and community for their extraordinary support after the unfortunate event of VIR’s Mighty Oak falling down. “You have all made this event much easier to bear.”
Due to the fall of the Mighty Oak, they have had to make some changes to the entire Oak Tree Turn. It was their intention to wait until winter to make these changes and to release this announcement for 2014, but a few recent incidents have shown them that they needed to take action now:
- Station formerly known as 11A has been moved across the track to Driver’s Left and is now Station 11.
- Station formerly known as the Oak Tree station has been moved off the turn and placed on Driver’s Left at the Photo / F&C access gate inside the chain-link fence and will now be called Station 12.
- Station formerly known as 12 will now be called Station 13.
