    Sadly haven't been to any as of yet. College budget, as well as not having a job this summer screwed over my plans of going to each. :(

    The closest track to me is a little hole in the cornfield and trees called Mt. Lawn Speedway here in Greensboro, Indiana. Many national stars including Ryan Newman and Junior Hanley have raced there. It also has to unique distinction of having two guys named Tony Stewart race there, one being former Cup champion Tony Stewart and the other being local drywall guy Tony Stewart. lol

    Closest Cup Track: Sonoma Raceway (still around a 18 hour drive nonstop by the fact it took 15 from my place to Sacramento)

    My closest speedway is also Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. The CTS series used to run there.

    We'll, let's see, there's Marshalltown Fairgrounds, Iowa Speedway, both less then 20 minutes from me. Then I have Knoxville, Eddyville, Cedar Rapids Downs and about 5 other tracks with in an hour or so drive, if only the old lady looked racing as much as I did. One did close last year tho `1`

    We have a track here that is both, a 3/8 mile modified "D" asphalt oval and a drag strip which they just
    re-did with a full quarter mile concrete strip. There's only about three in the country like it.
    It's Kil-Kare Speedway.

    Around here, I have quite a few tracks. Obviously, the famed Knoxville Raceway is a place everybody knows and has heard of, and then Boone about an hour north. Over the past year, we lost the Iowa Fair Grounds raceway due to some horrible management from the promoters who drove away the fans and drivers, BUT due to too much bitching, it will be making a come back in a few years as a reconfigured track in another spot on the fair grounds.

    My closest track is Riverhead Raceway. They run the late models and the modifieds there, and it's very fun to watch!

    I'm in between Red Bluff and Chico, CA in a small town with no tracks, I have SIlver Dollar Speedway in Chico and Red Bluff Bullring in Red Bluff, Kyle Larson grew up racing in Red Bluff so my family knows him well, while many NASCAR stars and even the World of Outlaws race at Silver Dollar.
