Worst NASCAR Tracks

This list is for some of the worst tracks on the NASCAR schedule

The Top Ten

1 Pocono Raceway

Absolute garbage

Worst NASCAR track ever! You need binoculars to see the cars and they drive in a single file five seconds apart

Track is long and boring. Needs one race.

Different angles corners and it's a triangle

2 Kentucky Speedway

They added this worthless track to the cup schedule over Iowa, Road America, or Gateway. And parking is a mess.

Home track is boring. Should be repaved. But there is some wrecks

Pretty Boring track. This should be turned into another date for Las Vegas or Atlanta.

Should be racing at Road America or Mid Ohio instead of this mediocre racetrack. Bruton Smith only cares about $$$$$$$$$$$. - Drippycheesycanoli

3 Martinsville Speedway

Worst track in Motorsports. No speed and they have to move cars just to pass.

Worst track, boring race.

Shorter it is, the boring it is. AND this is the shortest and it's very boring. Even qualifying at Pocono could do better.


4 Sonoma Raceway

NASCAR should build a track in the Sacramento area. There is plenty of available land and it will draw more race fans than Sonoma.

This track is a nice spot for vacation, it's just ovals are better. Road Courses are only good for T.V.

5 New Hampshire Motor Speedway

That track is boring and kyle busch wins there a lot there too. On nascar heat 2 it is a pain to get around

Not much character in New Hampshire. The last chase race was good it's just they need some banking and a night race, then it will be off the list

There is no speed, no bankings, no action. there is nothing what makes NASCAR what it is.

6 Watkins Glen


Just really boring cause you have to wait a long time to see the cars again. Good on T.V. bad place to go to

Good track it's just its only good for T.V.

7 Kansas Speedway
8 Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Not built for stock cars. Provides good racing for Indy car but not nascar. The 2008 tire debacle made it worse.

Can't see anything if you go to a race there, and the racing sucks

Good track for Indycar but sucks for NASCAR

To narrow! poor race track for stock cars and it's a crowded mess...

9 Chicagoland speedway

It has bumps in the bottom grove.

Absolute garbage

Terrible track! There is no character to this track at all. A dumpy track with grandstands and an oval. Even Gateway would be a better fit and they woulf be good but traffic is bad and parking spaces

10 Texas Motor Speedway

The Contenders

11 Dover International Speedway

Dover International Speedway is one of NASCAR top best track's

Awesome track

12 Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Hardly a caution. Not that I want to see anyone get hurt. Never. But let's have a little action.

13 Richmond International Raceway

Like Bristol except boring. Brad Keselowski led almost the whole race last fall and you often fall asleep. Richmond should only get one race or get 1 day and 1 night

14 Michigan Speedway

Track sucks! So boring and long. Only one race a year is needed.

Just a long, uneventful race. The only action you see is engine blows

15 Darlington Raceway

Darlington is one of the most well known tracks and the races are interesting, I have been to a race in person and it was amazing

Only reason why people like this track is tradition. There hasn't been a good race here since 2003 (I guess a case could be made for 2011) and the racing is generally pretty boring. Yet this is considered one of the crown Jewel races?

16 Auto Club

Great racing here but way too many empty seats

17 Talladega Superspeedway

Good for T.V. not real life

18 ISM Raceway

It is trash
