NASCAR at Kentucky: 7 Other Tracks That Deserve a Sprint Cup Race

For better or for worse, the inaugural race at Kentucky Speedway took place last weekend.

Another cookie-cutter track from the Speedway Motorsports Inc. family, the 400-mile race saw very little in terms of actual action until the latter stages of the 267-lap event. The Busch brothers and Brad Keselowski dominated, flying out with a lead after getting clean air during restarts. Of course, Kyle eventually won.

The boredom at the track was surpassed by the total mess that occurred off the track. Traffic was backed up for miles hours before the event, a situation that didn't remedy itself before the race. Parking was few and far between, showing that the facility clearly wasn't ready to support 107,000 fans on race day.

With that in mind, here are seven other tracks that deserve a Sprint Cup date. Some of these tracks should get their first date, some should see a return to Cup racing and some just deserve a second date.
