The game-changing road-course tracks may be out of the way, but within the collection of intermediate tracks, there is a challenging variety of venues in the mix that take drivers to season's end at Homestead.
Only four races remain until the start of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.
The elite drivers of the sport will then do battle on 10 tracks to see how the points will shake out and who will get the title.
The 1.5-mile tracks make up six of the remaining 14 races. Though they are referred to as "cookie-cutter" tracks, each has some unique traits.
The rest of the tracks offer variety with short-track drama, the superspeedway crap shoot, fast, banked ovals and a track with a dogleg that is described as a "roller coaster," all could make for dramatic racing.
This slideshow will highlight the tracks that may present some of the toughest challenges to the drivers not only going for the championship, but also those who just want to end with a decent season.
