I don't think it will be around in 10 more years if things continue at this rate.
How much different do the tracks have to be. Superspeedway-Daytona-Talledega
Long low banked tracks-Indy, Fontana
Short track-intermediate-Bristol, Martinsville, Richmond, Phoenix.
Road courses Watkins Glen, Sonoma-
Mile and a half-Chicago, Texas, Las Vegas, Chicago, Kansas-

Personalities? Hot heads like the Busch brothers, Harvick, Stewart

But I would love to see them add a dirt track race to the schedule again.
