Fans are apt to see a really great race at any given track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit, but some tracks generally provide more exciting racing than others. A select group of tracks are guaranteed to provide must-see action.
With the debut of the new G6 (generation six) car that replaces the COT, we may see an on-track product that is a game-changer from the type of racing we have been used to seeing since 2007.
Tracks that saw drivers play follow-the-leader for most of the race because of an inability to make quality passes may no longer have that kind of racing.
There is a good possibility that racing at all the venues, regardless of size, may have a new type of racing with the G6 which will give the drivers and fans more reasons for enthusiasm about the 2013 season.
Certain races are just outstanding because of the combination of the track's historical significance, the type of racing and the overall experience for the fan.
This slideshow will highlight the five must-see races for 2013 that we know will produce a great show. They are races that also may be pivotal for the drivers. See if you agree with the selection.
