              Right at about 550 miles from the sunny shores of Crystal Lake, IL to the Kansas Speedway in the 1985 Camaro Z28 hat has logged many miles to many speedways over the past 25 years.

              As to the survey, sure hope that there are noticeable numbers that made it past the 300 mile mark, it shows the series matters enough for people to travel. Three hundred miles is about a 5 hour drive and an easy yardstick. If you draw a circle with a 300 mile radius around every race it's not unreasonable to think that fans who fall in the overlapping arcs would be able to attend those races. No not everyone but plenty can make a one day trip.

                I put 750, though Durant is between 800 and 900 miles to Indianapolis last I checked.

                  Wow. One of three thing must be true.
                  1. You have a very large house.
                  2. You considered a round trip.
                  3. You considered trips to the fridge.

                      Or I estimate poorly...I can get the laser range finder out if you really feel it's needed. But you are right, 50 yards from bedroom to living room is a bit beyond the scope of my home.

                        around 100 or so from atlanta to barber. I would have gone to indy, but it just didnt work out. I've gone as far as toronto, and will likely go to indy, barber, baltimore, and possibly texas next year.

                          In total I have over 4000 miles this year (Denver to Indy and Denver to Kentucky). Does that get me the prize for the longest drive??
