Exciting: Any Short track!

Boring(LONG): Whichever year the Brickyard had the Good Year tire issue. Mandatory 10 laps cautions to change tire out. Longest race of my life!
2008 brickyard

I saw Jeff Burton lead 300 of 300 at Loudon. What a snooze.... There wasn't any passing at all - not even mid-pack! One lane only. I saw a Dover race that was pretty good.

One driver leads and pulls away to a 23 second lead in like 13 laps, there's never any cautions, and only like 4 drivers dominate it everytime.

I know, there's not much excitement but Its always nice to know that JJ always has a good chance to win there. They should shut it down and go race at Rockingham or go somewhere else twice.

They really should stop going to Auto Club. Horrible racing and it's way out of the way and the attendence is absolutley horrible. I'm actually in favor of them not having a track west of Kansas/Texas(whichever is more west).

Well exciting is tough to say there have been some great races recently but boring here's my list
BORING RACES:
AUTO CLUB(ANY RACE)
2008 Rockingham ARCA( Was actually at this race and Logano lapped all but 1 car at one time)
Any Pocono Race Denny Hamlin Wins
Infineon (Half the races there are boring other half are slightly interesting)
New Hampshire (It's small but nowhere close to short track racing)

The '01 Spring Atlanta race is at the top of the list for excitement, to me at least. (And I'm not even a Sr./Harvick fan)

That's easy for you to say since you live in Florida. I've never been to a single NASCAR race because of the scarcity of tracks west of the Mississippi. I am in favor of Auto Club staying on the circuit because it gives people who live on the west coast more races to see. We really need a track up in Washington or Oregon, then the sport and truly be nationwide and not just a southern/east coast sport.

Btw my top 5 favorites
2002 Bristol night
Any Dega or Daytona from 2000-2009 (except the 09 Daytona 500)
2003 Infineon
2004 Gateway Truck Race
2011 Ford 400

EXCITING
1)Kurt Busch 06 Bristol win, first in PRS equipment...bump and run for the lead then held his ground for the win, sparked a shoving match between kenseth and Gordon.
2)Martin willing a win at MIS in 09 as two or three cars ahead of him ran out of fuel to the finish.
3)Harvick winning the Coke 600 last year. I had picked up the early release armed forces diecast on a whim, met him in the garage and had him sign it, wished him luck...and met him in VL when it was over...better still the drunken faction leaving the track were STILL convinced the 88 actually won and couldn't come to grips with the fact he hadn't as he too ran out of fuel THAT close.
4) Burton and Kenseth dueling at Dover for the last 50 laps or so...Kenseth was strong in 1 and 2 while Burton was strong in 3 and 4...at the finish...the 31 pulled it off.
5)Watching the 3 car race from about 15th to the win in a matter of less than ten laps...can't even recall the year but it was pretty amazing considering the circumstances...just amazing driving.

worst
1) anything at new hampshire.
2) most races at MIS
3) most races at california
4) bristol with the old configuration and crashes every five laps...
5) bristol night race in 05...everyone was driving so conservatively to avoid falling out of the chase nobody pushed it for a win and Kenseth ran away with it...happy to see him win but it wasn't hard core racing it was points racing.
