Based on what I've seen at the two tracks, I'd rather have Vegas than Charlotte TBH.

They both equally as entertaining or lack there of. I don't really care...yet they should add something more interesting rather then another boring race.

This.

Also, Why get rid of a 2nd race at a track THAT NASCAR BASICALLY LIVES AT. Makes no Sense.

I actually like this idea. It makes the Coke 600 more important, and it gives Vegas a well deserved fall date. I too wish Iowa would get a date!

Wasn't the Vegas race this year actually really good? I don't see why you guys are disapproving of this...

I'll take a Pocono race over a Charlotte race. Charlotte has always been a terrible track, whereas Vegas has had some good racing lately.

In other words;

I don't know what the deal is there. I actually would really like it if Las Vegas got a second date on the Sprint Cup schedule replacing the Charlotte fall race, but they should have the second race as a night race because that could be a better benefit for the track.

My concern is it's just replacing one 1.5 mile track with one of a different configuration. To me, NASCAR needs more variety in their tracks, especially during the chase. I'd much rather see a unique track, even Pocono as Cy said. Ideally, Iowa gets the date, but I don't expect that to happen.

That's bad Alta, considering, I name ever Vegas winner since '01 without looking it up.

'01- J.Gordon
'02- S.Marlin
'03 & '04- Kenseth
'05, '06, '07, '10- Johnson

Now that you've mentioned it, what they really should do is replace the Charlotte fall race with Iowa, because it could be very exciting in outcome of the championship. I even still think the 2nd Michigan Race should be replaced with a third Road Course, something like Road America which I personally hope should be a candidate for the Sprint Cup Schedule.

Not really. Plus, the old Atlanta configuration is a thousand times better than Homestead.

Charlotte and Vegas are kind of equally bad races but it's a history thing. Charlotte losing a race to Las Vegas would be really disappointing.

Agreed. Between Charlotte and Vegas, Charlotte is practically NASCAR's hometown, and is capable of producing some good races (although recent years have not provided any). I never really liked Vegas, but that's just me.

I've always thought it would be cool if they just built a whole separate track like the modern day Atlanta instead of bulldozing the old one. I liked both configurations.

I hope they get rid of the Charlotte fall race, but replace it with Iowa. Almost everyone series has gone there and produces great action.
