The basic premise of the show is that it explores a variety of abandoned race tracks around the United States. So, Dale Jr and his entourage have a great time exploring these historically significant and visually stunning racetracks. Admittedly, there is no word on when Season two of ‘Lost Tracks’ will release, but it will be soon.

“It’s my privilege to announce ‘Lost Speedways’ is back for a second season on Peacock,” said Dale Earnhardt Jr. “The fan response from season 1 was too overwhelming to stop. Our goal for season 2 was to broaden our footprint. We did that with trips into New England, Texas, West Virginia and Florida. This new run of episodes features amazing tracks, incredible stories and legendary racers. My Dirty Mo Media crew did an outstanding job capturing the essence of these old speedways, and I had a blast exploring them.”
