“Lost Speedways” with Dale Earnhardt Jr. will return for a second season this summer on Peacock, the soon-to-be NASCAR Hall of Famer revealed on his “The Dale Jr. Download” podcast on Tuesday.

In a release announcing the second season, Earnhardt said, “We’re excited to bring you a second season of that show. We were so happy with the response from season one. We’ve got a whole new batch of really unique race tracks. Going to these places produced some incredible experiences. I just can’t wait for you to see them.”

The show documents Dale Jr.’s passion, exploration and historical look at race tracks around the country that are now desolate and unused. Matthew Dillner serves as the co-host of the show.
