Touring Car Racing
TOURING CAR RACING is an auto racing competition with heavily modified road-going cars. It is popular in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Germany, Sweden
Sweden
and Norway. While not as fast as Formula One
Formula One
, the similarity of the cars both to each other and to fans' own vehicles makes for entertaining, well-supported racing. The lesser use of aerodynamics means following cars have a much easier time passing than in F1, and the more substantial bodies of the cars makes the occasional nudging for overtaking much more acceptable as part of racing. As well as short "sprint" races, many touring car series include one or more endurance races , which last anything from 3 to 24 hours and are a test of reliability and pit crews as much as car, driver speed and consistency

Eldora Speedway
ELDORA SPEEDWAY, also known as THE BIG E, is located near New Weston, Ohio . Eldora is a half-mile clay oval with an estimated seating capacity of nearly 18,000. It hosts such races as "The Kings Royal," "The Dirt Late Model Dream," "Chevrolet American Revolution Weekend," the "Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby ", and "The World 100 ." The World 100 annually attracts over 200 dirt late-model racers, while the Chevrolet American Revolution Weekend originally featured four races in one night -- midget , non-winged sprint , Silver Crown, and dirt modified, with drivers earning a special bonus should one driver win all four races. Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart purchased the speedway in late 2004 from Earl Baltes , who built the speedway from the ground up in 1954. In 2011, Stewart hired former Charlotte Motor Speedway V.P. of events Roger Slack to direct the day to day operations as general manager and speedway promoter

Atlanta 250
The RINNAI 250 is a NASCAR Xfinity Series stock car race held at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia , a few miles south of Atlanta . This race has long served as Atlanta's lone Busch/Nationwide Series date, and has been shuffled around the schedule several times. From its inception until 2001 the race was run as part of Atlanta's spring Winston Cup race weekend, as the then-Busch Series ended its season at a different track than the then-Winston Cup series. Following the transfer of the season ending Cup series race from Atlanta to Homestead-Miami Speedway after the 2001 season (although due to extenuating circumstances the 2001 Atlanta fall race was not the final race of the season), the now 312-mile race was moved to Atlanta's fall race weekend where it remained until Aaron's Rental, who was sponsoring the race, chose instead to sponsor the lone Busch event at Talladega
