NASCAR America: 50 States in 50 Shows: Indiana

0 Comments

We’re F14 states into the NASCAR America’s “50 States in 50 Shows” and that brings us to one of the most important states in the history of auto racing.

Today’s state is Indiana, home of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” in the Indianapolis 500, NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 and Winchester Speedway.

Winchester Speedway is located in Winchester, almost 90 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

The high-banked track, which used to be the site of NASCAR test sessions, is the host of the Winchester 400, a famous super-late model race that has been won by NASCAR Hall of Famers Mark Martin and Rusty Wallace.

Other drivers who have braved the track’s 37-degree banking include A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart.
