Top 10 Rejected NASCAR Racetrack Nicknames

Frontstretch Staff · Wednesday May 9, 2012


This Top 10, of course, is in honor of this week’s race, held at the one racetrack with two nicknames that stick for fans throughout NASCAR Nation: The Lady In Black and The Track Too Tough To Tame (Darlington).

“Kentucky: The Bearded Lady…that has a certain ring…

10. Pocono: Because We Can’t Count to 4.

9. Sears Point: No Whiners, Just Wine.

8. Charlotte: Bruton… or Humpy… Will Leave The Lights On For You. We’re not quite sure.

7. Homestead: Who Needs the Lady In Black? We’ve Got Old Guys in Speedos!

6. Las Vegas: What Crashes In Vegas, Stays In Vegas.

5. Indianapolis: Come Pray in Somebody Else’s Church!

4. Martinsville: We’re More Than Just Hot Dogs.

3. Daytona: Hol(e)y Racetrack, Batman! It’s Explosive!

2. Talladega: More Banged Up Racecars for Your Buck! (A Tony Stewart favorite.)

1. Fontana: The Track Too Boring to Bother.

These are funny and all, but with Dan Wheldon’s death last year at LVMS, maybe #6 is a little too soon.
