    NASCAR Sprint Cup Tracks


    Homestead_2011-1 (24K)     The majority of today's NASCAR Sprint Cup series races are held on high-speed circle tracks with banked turns; Currently NASCAR races on four different types of tracks. Short tracks: oval racetrack that is less than one mile in length. Intermediate: oval racetrack that is greater than one mile in length but less than two miles in length. Superspeedway: oval racetrack that is greater than two miles in length. Road Course: racetrack with both left and right hand turns.

        All of NASCAR's Oval racetracks can be categorized into a few other classifications. Quad Oval: circle racetrack with four corners a straight backstretch and a frontstretch with two slight turns in it with little or no banking. Tri-oval: circle racetrack with four corners a straight backstretch and a frontstretch with one slight turn in it with little or no banking. D-shaped Oval: circle racetrack with four corners a straight backstretch and a frontstretch that arcs from turn four to turn one. Oval: circle racetrack with four corners and two straightaways. All the oval-track races are run counterclockwise, meaning they have only left-hand turns.

        Today all of the tracks that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series run on are paved, but it wasn't always that way. NASCAR's inaugural 1949 season, all the tracks were dirt except for the 4.15-mile Daytona Beach & Road Course, only part of which was paved. NASCAR continued to run on both paved and dirt tracks until September 30, 1970.
