The thing about Kentucky is that it is just another cookie cutter 1.5 mile track very close to Chicagoland and Kentucky mostly. It was fine as a nationwide track, but with Texas, Charlotte, Atlanta, Kansas, Chicagoland, Las Vegas, and Homestead, is there really a need for more 1.5 mile tracks? Nashville would have been a better option (very cool track a 1.5 mile track yet concrete hate that they left because they couldn't get a cup date). The real reason we see more and more 1.5 mile tracks are because of they can seat more. Though I do enjoy Charlotte and Atlanta (best 1.5 tracks), Homestead has became a good track, same with Vegas, and even Texas, Chicagoland and Kansas have their moments. Races like the old Bristol and Martinsville will always be the best racing. Throw in some road races (since honestly there are only maybe 12 cup drivers who are good road racers it is entertaining to see the rest try to turn right) and those are the funnest races to watch. Iowa has shown great racing in the IRL, the Nationwide series, the truck series, and some lower racing series like the K&N pro series. It's a mixture of a super speedway and a short track.
Cup: 14, 1, 29, 88, 99, 11, 17, 39, 15, 5, 2, 16
NW: 7, 31, 3, 11, 60, 88, 12
Trucks: 9, 88, 3, 7, 17, 31
IRL: 10, 11, 12, 26, 3, 38, 27
