The local connection:
Six major NASCAR tracks are within a day’s drive of Tampa. That really doesn’t qualify a track as local, but when considering speed and good times – distance isn’t always an obstacle. With the proper definition somewhat distant racetracks become local if the enthusiasm of fans is calculated before miles are measured. Great destinations justify journeys.
Tampa local racetrack definition (Fan bias included):
Popular motorsports venues are considered local if they aren’t more than a 10 hour drive from Tampa.
NASCAR racetracks — [Miles] [Route] [Travel time by car]
Daytona International Speedway [140 miles] [I-75 E – 2 ½ hours]
Homestead-Miami Speedway [300 miles] [I-75 S – 5 hours]
Atlanta Motor Speedway [440 miles] [I-75 N – 7 hours]
Darlington Raceway [525 miles] [I-95 N – 9 hours]
Talladega Superspeedway [570 miles] [I-75 N – 9 ½ hours]
Charlotte Motor Speedway [600 miles] [I-95 N – 10 hours]
