North Wilkesboro Speedway will be raced on once again, virtually.

The former NASCAR track in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina, will be the site of the scheduled final round of the eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series this Saturday at 3 p.m. ET on Fox.

The announcement was made during today’s Pro Invitational race on a virtual Dover International Speedway.

North Wilkesboro, a .625-mile track, last hosted a NASCAR Cup Series race on Sept. 29, 1996, a race won by Jeff Gordon.

Late last year, NBC Sports analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. led an effort to scan the track so it could be incorporated on the iRacing service.

Earnhardt will debut the digital version of the historic track Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on his Twitch channel as part of a look at how the scanning of the track came together.
