Top 10 Rejected NASCAR Racetrack Nicknames

_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.
