Over the years the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has made its way to several different tracks over the country.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup season consists of 36 races plus the Daytona Shootout, the Duels, and the All Star race, each bringing their own unique style of racing and excitement. Several of these tracks consist of road course racing, pack racing, two-car tandem racing, or every driver for themselves.

Every season that passes by the most awaited and excited races come from various tracks in the forms of road course, short tracks, the Tricky Triangle, Super Speedways and plate tracks.

Each race creates its own memories and excitement but five races out of the 36 on the Sprint Cup Series schedule set themselves apart and become five of the best and most awaited races on the schedule.

Tracks like Bristol, Talladega, Sonoma, Chicagoland and the rest of the tracks bring their own uniqueness for their racing styles or for what the races stand for in the schedule. Fans wait and watch for every race in the schedule but when it comes to Charlotte, Daytona, Homestead, Watkins Glen and Indianapolis, the races at those tracks are the most exciting races of the year.

When it comes to Daytona and Charlotte, those two tracks host more than one race throughout the year but still provide some of the most exciting and awaited races of the year. Daytona hosts the season opener the Daytona 500 and Charlotte hosts the longest race of the year, the Coca-Cola 600.

Meanwhile tracks like Watkins Glen, Indianapolis and Homestead only host a race once a year but they also host some of the biggest races of the year. The races at the Brickyard, Watkins Glen, and the championship finale at Homestead

Every race has their own special glory but these five races set themselves apart.
