Me I like ANY road course. The Glenn, Road Atlanta, Riverside and of course my favorite Mid Ohio.

Of course that is from a old SCCA Road Racer.

I like Pocono and Dover. NASCAR is pricing me out of the races. With ticket prices quickly approaching 100 buck for a WCS event, I gave up my Pocono tickets. Got my renewal for Dover and sent it back. Just got my prices a few weeks ago. Another price increase to $ 94.00 per ticket. Guess I'll only have another year or two before giving those up too.

NASCAR is quickly going to path of MLBB and NFL. The original, loyal fans won't be able to afford to go anymore.

Guess I'll start going to the BGN races. They're more competitive anyway.

Been to Daytona, Talladega, Atlanta, The Brickyard & Charolette. Hated Daytona. Had bad seats at the Brickyard. Might go again if i could get different seats. Atlanta & Talladega are great. But we LOVED LOWES MOTOR SPEEDWAY. Would like to visit Bristol, Darlington and anywhere out west, at least once.

I'm with you K-Star. The money is getting ridiculous!
I used to go to Pocono twice a year in the mid-70's, but now my perm seats are at Martinsville (spring) and Atlanta (fall). Martinsville is still a relatively inexpensive ticket, but it's hard to get to its rural location. Atlanta is a hike from here, but it's all highway. I just don't know if it's still worth $105 x four seats.
Every year, I tell the guys that I'm going to give the seats up. I just can't pull the trigger!
Maybe this year will do it. It looks like NASCAR may have trouble filling 43 spots due to team expenses and lack of sponsorships. I won't pay big money to see a short field.
We'll see...

Well so far I have only been to TMS. Jeff has gone to Daytona for the 500 twice.

Would love to go to Bristol for the night race, Rockingham and Phoenix.

I watch them all the time on TV.. would love to go see them in person sometime. but then don't you have trouble seeing the whole track and I'd miss the commentary.. Will look into going up to Phx in the fall tho. Should do it at least once.. do you all park around the track?

I've been to Richmond more times than I count, been to Martinsville once, and Rockingham once. I'd love to check out Pocono, but unless I can find at least an electric Hook-up for the A/C because both of those events are mid-summer!

I am actually enjoying watching the BGN more than WCS. Now that CTS is back on SpeedChannel, I'll get to watch them again. I can go to Nazareth for the BGN race and not have to be hassled with a ton of traffic. Maybe one day CTS will be back to Nazareth.

My old home track was "The Rock" when living in NC. Now that we have been in Fl. for the past 14 years I guess Daytona is our home track and we go twice a year in the infield with MH lots of fun. The sport has really grown the last ten years, very corporate now. Been to Darlington, Charlotte (Lowes now), Atlanta & N. Wilksboro. It has been a dream to someday follow the circuit to every race but the cost has gotten too high so I will just have to dream. Good luck to all going to the races and if you see us by all means introduce yourself as another iRV2.com member. We display the iRV2.com banner at all the tracks we go to now.

As someone who was lucky enough to be able to attend Winston Cup races in my job for 15 years, here's my favorites. Without a doubt, Bristol anytime! The night race slightly more than the day race, but this short track is the best. Rockingham is also a great track.
Least favorites, Daytona and Talladega. Hate restrictor plates, always will. Give me open motors on shorts tracks, and drop the rag and watch what happens!!!! Like Supercrewser said, get rid of the cookie cutter tracks!!

We've done Las Vegas Motorspeedway. Didn't stay in the RV area, just camped in the parking lot. It was ok... nothin' to write home about. Probably would have been more fun to be in the RV area.
