NASCAR Tracks to Visit this Fall
NASCAR is bigger than ever and there’s no doubt you’re all about racing. If you’ve had enough of watching the tracks on your www.direct.tv satellite, though, you’ve got to realize fall’s a perfect time to visit one of the country’s best tracks. Here are our favorites
Bristol – There’s no better time to head to Bristol on the TN/NC border. Fall is when the leaves are changing and the drive in is gorgeous from any angle and the races aren’t too bad either. In fact, Bristol is one of our favorite racing tracks in the country.
Atlanta – While you’re down south you’ve got to check out Atlanta Motor Speedway. It’s still shiny and new feeling and you’re so close to the North Georgia mountains you can make a great day trip out of it.
Charlotte – Charlotte Motor Speedway is a must-see for any track enthusiast and they’ve got a great 500 in October. The city itself really comes alive in the fall and you’re likely to catch some festivals and great restaurant specials while you’re there.
