Well, it seems that we are in for a shuffle of events next year. Kansas is primed to get a second race. The track likely to lose a race is Michigan, which has been one of the hardest hit states the past few years.
Some people might suggest California, but they are not leaving the L.A. area. Phoenix has also been suggested, but the track is run too well to lose a race.
Martinsville might also be suggested by some people, but the track is too important to the history of NASCAR to lose a race. Kentucky is also likely to get a race. Which track loses a date from that is anyone's guess.
Some people might suggest Atlanta, but the racing should be much better there this year with a new tire. Las Vegas is run too well. Bristol is not losing a race. Texas is too important. Infineon is one of only two road courses in Sprint Cup.
That leaves New Hampshire and Charlotte among SMI tracks. The likely loser is New Hampshire since Charlotte will be the site of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. However, you never know what trick Bruton Smith has up his sleeve next.
