Mine would have to be the Night race at Bristol, Daytona 500 and Kansas (only because I now live 3 1/2 hours from a track).

The road courses should be nuked. Get rid on New Hampshire. Why don't NASCAR take these 4 races and give them to the tracks that want a second race and keep Martinsville and Darlington and Dover like they are

Couldn't agree more about New Hampshire, but it isn't going anywhere. They sell out every race and with a limited amout of tracks in that region NASCAR dosen't want to lose that fan base in that part of the country.

We've been to Las Vegas twice for races, and once to Phoenix. We find superspeedway racing boring. Much more interesting on the tube. I can't imagine what it would be like to be at a really big track like Daytona where you can't even tell the color of the cars on the backstretch. We're die-hard short track fans. While in Phoenix for the Cup race this past November, the best racing we saw was the wingless sprints on the dirt track at Manzanita Speedway. Just my two cents.

I've been fortunate to have attended races at 10 of the current tracks. Used to have permenant seats at Talledega, haven't been there since '88, first year of the "plates", and will not go back as long as they keep running them plates.
Charlotte (Lowe's) is super, Atlanta, fast speeds...but without a doubt, BRISTOL nite race is the most exciting. I haven't missed a nite race there in close to 20 years. I'm lucky, I have 12 permenant seats, 2 campsites within rock throwing distance from the track, so close that when they practice, we can hardly hear ourselves talk if we're outside the camper.
We stay the entire week!!!!

I agree with you on this! I have only been to one race, The Bud at the Glen, many years ago. We camped there all week, and that was fun, but as far as the race itself......well Couldn't really see anything. We had great seats across from the pit, but it was one of those 'still' days, and the fumes just hung in the air! Blech!
Someday would like to hit the Poconos and Dover

Been to Bristol (spring), Phoenix and Texas. Really like Texas...great arrangement for camping..albeit, somewhat expensive as are the tickets..but, lets face it; most of the races are a vacation destination and not like oh, say baseball, with 80 home games a year. Lots of folks think nothing of $100 to $200 greens fees for golfing vacations so ticket prices are not horribly out of whack in that perspective. If you camp for a week and take in local attractions, the race is icing on the cake. Just my 2cw.

It's $80 per person for admission, and if you want to dry camp for the weekend, it's $100! We decided it's more affordable to sit home and watch it on TV.

You only go around once in this life. I have season pass renewable infield camping at Kansas Speedway. Costs a whole lot more than that to get infield.

Going to Bristol and Texas Motor Speedway in March. Kansas Speedway in July and October.

You can see almost all of the races if your seats are up high. It's hard to see all of Talladega or Daytona just because they are so big.

Get a scanner to hear all the commentary. Keeps the noise level down too.

I've been to:

Talladega 4 times
Texas Motor Speedway 3 times
Kansas Speedway 3 times
Martinsville 1 time
St. Louis 1 time
Memphis 1 time

There's just nothing like being there.

Las Vegas, Daytona, and Pocono are on my list for the future.

I see a lot of posts where people said they like the Atlanta race. DH and I are tossing around the idea of going, it looks like there's still tickets available. My question is, can you see the race from most seats? We'll never go back to Indy because you just can't see the race from most of the seats, you can only see the cars as they're going past you (unless you're watching the TV across the track but if I want to do that I'll stay in the camper and watch). Also, what's the camping like at Atlanta?

Atlanta, is my favorite, we Go every fall, and by the way went to the first race in the spring and they seem to have the traffic problem solved.

Scanning these posts, I didn't notice anyone mention Phonix. PIR is basically a flat, one-mile track, and I suspect this is why. While the speeds are slower, there's lots of it! Southwest series, Trucks, Busch, and WC. The camping is awesome, and free so far. You pick your piece of real estate in the desert next to the track and hang out for six days. Beautiful sunsets. Tremendous views down overlooking the lighted community off in the distance and over the track. Party is great too! This will be our 3rd year (from Sacramento CA), and it keeps gett'n better...
