Certain Sprint Cup tracks tend to have a more diabolical aura than their counterparts. Be it due to a track's legend and reputation or toughness, certain racing facilities just seem to stand out.
Granted, there are 23 different tracks on the Sprint Cup schedule, ranging from the smallest tracks (Bristol, Martinsville and Richmond) to the largest (Indianapolis, Daytona and Talladega).
Just because a track is known as diabolical isn't necessarily a bad thing. It can actually be quite an honor, putting that particular track head and shoulders above the rest of its fellow tracks as one of the toughest racing surfaces in the sport.
To make this fair and focused, I've chosen just eight tracks. Too few would be too little; too many would make the selection process less meaningful.
If you feel another track or tracks should be on here, let's hear your thoughts, as well.
