Well, If you choose to go to any of the 2.5 mile tracks or road courses, here is a little advice, where you sit is all you see. Of course Talladega has the best parties and infield but do you really want to see the cars come by in 10 seconds for every 50 seconds for 200 laps. These are way better to watch on TV because you can see the action at all times with a greater view. This is some of the BEST racing out there but I just think it is better to watch on TV. Next, you have the 1.5 - 2 mile tracks. These tracks have good racing but seem to get very spread out and have LONG green flag runs. These are the tracks that usually leave 10 - 20 cars on the lead lap by the end of the race and the way the new car perfroms when in clean air, the leader is gone once the green flag drops. My favorite races to go to are the 1 mile tracks like dover and New Hampshire. Dover is high banked and fast and always has great racing. Just look at the last ten laps from the dover race this year, they always seem to come right back together for a good race at the end. I have always liked the racing at New Hampshire and just love how the track is pretty flat and they have to move each other out of the way. Finally, you have the short tracks, Richmond, Martinsville, and Bristol. These tracks produce some of the best racing, beating and banging, and are always some of the most "looked foward to" races on the schedule. Bristol has lost some of its original beating and banging since the resurface, but is still a great show. Night races are great races to attend. The track has more grip which usually results in more side-by-side racing. You see the sparks flying and love the looks of the cars at night. Anyways, this is just my opinion that I have gathered from attending races in the past. I hope this helps you and ENJOY the NHMS race!
