5 NASCAR Tracks That Separate Contenders from Pretenders
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
Indianapolis is one of the most prestigious tracks to win a race on.

Over the course of a Sprint Cup Series season races are held on 23 different tracks. While it takes a certain amount of skill to win at any of them, there are certain tracks that will separate the championship contenders from the rest of the field.

While Daytona and Talladega offer some exciting and heart-stopping moments, the rules package that NASCAR brings to those tracks has made them more about luck than skill. Every driver has a realistic chance of scoring a win.
