Of course that opens a whole new can of beans.
I've wondered that for a long time. Daytona, Talladega, Charlotte, Bristol, and probably Richmond all deserve two dates a year. On the other hand, there is no reason whatsoever for the teams to trek to Long Pond, Pennsylvania or Loudon, New Hampshire twice a year.
I certainly hope this works for Kentucky Speedway and they get a date. There are no really good options for this area for watching a Nextel Cup race. Despite all its history, Indianapolis is the worst venue in the nation to watch an event, and Bristol tickets run $125 apiece minimum, and you're lucky to get them for that.
