Just over a mile in length (1.058 miles), NHMS’ oval is a classic “paper-clip” design with long straightaways and tight, flat turns. Not surprisingly, the track rewards cars that have plenty of “grunt” off the corners and brakes capable of getting things slowed-down at the end of the front straightaway and the backstretch . . . not to mention drivers who can baby those brakes from start to finish in races lasting three hours or more while making their cars work high and low in the turns.
