    Bristol_Motor_Speedway (70K) Short track racing, has often been associated with fairgrounds and similar venues, Short tracks is where stock car racing first got off the back roads and into organized and regulated competition. Many traditional fans and purists still see short track racing as the "real" NASCAR, because the lower speeds make "trading paint," where the bodies of the cars actually rub against one another, practical without a very high likelihood of serious accidents. In recent years, there has been a gradual push away from short track venues for Sprint Cup (the highest level of NASCAR) in favor of longer tracks. This is due to larger venues having accommodations for more fans.
