Hey Asheville, looking for some fun and adventure in the new year?
Try racing! - #digAVL Video 

A series on how local businesses are adjusting to the COVID-19 crisis

Hop into one of The Track at Asheville’s state-of-the-art simulators to race head-to-head with friends, significant others, or in a league. Whether you're new to motorsports or a seasoned veteran, you'll find a safe, immersive racing experience at the track. The Track has 12 simulation rigs with multiple tracks, cars, and experiences. We got the chance to learn more about their grand opening, how they got here, and all that's available!

See the video interview here!
While we've all had to adjust to the "new normal" (whatever that is), our local business owners and managers have their own stories to tell about how they've been affected and what they are doing during these unprecedented times. Dig Local is proud to interview some of the awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.
