November 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #116: Road Course

Tip of the Week

Road courses are the tracks that NASCAR races visit a couple times a year where the drivers not only get to turn left, but right as well. A road course is not an oval, rather it is a track with several twists and turns in both directions. When on a road course, the cars will do things a little different than usual like drive in the rain if need be. The first road course event was held at Linden Airport in New Jersey back in 1954 and since then there have been 8 different road course tracks used in NASCAR. These tracks include Watkins Glen International, Infineon Raceway, Road America, Augusta International Speedway, Willow Springs Speedway, Riverside Speedway, Bridgehampton Race Circuit and Titusville-Cocoa Airport.
