Introduction

I like road racing! I think that being able to control a 750+ horsepower 3400 pound stock car on a road course is a feat that separates the men from the boys. When it comes down to race driving credentials, being able to turn right as well as left, takes a special talent. As you’ll find in the following offering, lots of race teams bring in special road racing drivers because their regular drivers can’t cut the mustard, or just don’t like road racing. These “interlopers” are a detriment to the championship and the credibility of the Cup series race teams.

There are only two road racing track in Cup racing, Infineon Raceway at Sears Point, (Sonoma) California and Watkins Glen International at Watkins Glen, New York. If it were up to me there would be more road racing tracks, but to my knowledge, no plans are being made to include any additional road racing venues to the present Cup circuit.
