Our country is known for its oval tracks, but the less obvious truth is that the U.S. is also home to some of the finest road-racing courses in the world. The great circuits featured here generally date back to a time when racetracks were supposed to have elevation changes, blind corners, and distinct personalities. Most of the ones built in the past two decades are relatively similar to each other and essentially drama-free, designed to be safe rather than challenging. In the good old days, danger was an accepted part of the deal, and we think a scintilla of fear makes for a more challenging competition venue. Of course, we aren't featuring all of them--some stellar circuits, such as Mid-Ohio, didn't make the ultimate cut, and this will certainly inspire heated online arguments. But, hey, isn't that what the Internet is for?
A pair of Daytona Prototype teams whose Rolex 24 At Daytona results didn't quite meet expectations look for better performances next week when the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series journeys to Austin, Texas for its inaugural race at the Circuit of The Americas.
