Lee USA Speedway



It’s hard to believe that 5 years have passed since the day version of Lee USA for NR2003 was released in 2008 in a joint effort by Mark Royer and me, along with several other contributors. This night version is based on that track with many new extras and enhancements. For those not familiar with Lee USA Speedway, this first class racing facility located in Lee, NH, features a tight 1/3 mi oval with moderate banking. The weekly racing program includes the Late Models, Late Model Sportsman, Roadrunners, Hobby Stocks, Iron Man and Small Block Super Modifieds. Special major touring series events held at the track have included the VMRS (Valenti Modified Racing Series), ACT (American-Canadian Tour), PASS (Pro All-Star Series) and the Camping World East Series (formerly the Busch Grandnational North Series).

Features:
  • Improved grandstand models.
  • All new "Daytona stands" in turns 3-4.
  • New 3D crowd objects.
  • New skies that progress from evening to night from session to session.
  • New open haulers in the infield.
  • New textures, shadows, shading, horizons and track lighting effects.
  • New asphalt and paint line textures.
  • New flags and objects.
  • Miscellaneous other new objects and textures….too many to mention.

As is the case with all of our PST track projects, there are several contributors who are worthy of thanks. These talented people include: Wayne Anderson, Matt Gilson, Aaron Maynard, Ian Smythe, and Carl Sundberg. In addition to them, there are several others who made objects, textures, etc. that were used in this project. Please be sure to read about all of their contributions in the Lee_USA_Night_PST_README.txt included in the track folder. There are also some very important notes in there about the A.I. and how to get the best results when racing on the track in NR2003.

In our recent night track projects, we have been concentrating on trying to recreate that dimly-lit “Saturday night short track feel”. With Ian’s work on the track lighting, shading and shadows, we feel that we’ve again created a great nighttime environment. And when you couple that effort with the new night skies we’ve embedded in the track, we’re pretty sure that you’ll agree.

……and as an added bonus, we also have updated the day version of the track with all of the great new features, enhancements and objects highlighted in this night version.

So, with all of that said… Strap in… Pull your belts tight… Get up on the wheel… and get ready for some great door-bangin’ tight short track racing under the lights at Lee USA!!! Enjoy!
