If all modern "cookie cutters" except one disappear from the calendar, which oval would you keep?

Hello, as one of the co-authors of the oval racetrack article in Wikipedia, I would like to open a general discussion on the subject in this forum.

It was announced by NASCAR that they could make some major changes to the racing calendar from 2021 onwards. Assuming the unlikely and fictitious case would occur, all cookie cutter races would be replaced by shorttracks. Which of the racetracks would you like to keep and why?

BTW: As traditional racetracks, I do not put Charlotte and Michigan for election.

I would keep the Kansas Speedway because of some good races in past.

Texas Motor Speedway can be replaced by COTA, Chicagoland by Iowa Speedway or Gateway, Kentucky by Memphis or Nashville, Atlanta Speedway by Road Atlanta and AutoClub by Irwindale or Mesa Marin. There would not be a substitute for Las Vegas.

Atlanta.

I voted California, but that's not a cookie cutter. So Atlanta is my real answer I guess.

I love how no one picked Texas.
If they fix back the track and put banking back in it'll be fine. I am not sure what bright individual thought making it flat and wide was a good idea but they need to be taken in a dark room and beaten.

No, they didn't. The only other track is Kern County Raceway Park and it was built all the way across Bakersfield. The only thing built around the old track were subdivisions and a school.
Okay, thats the track I remember.

Interesting to see that the most unpopular track is the Kentucky Raceway. Built in 2000, they have 11 years to fight for a cup date. For Jeff Gordon fans, like me, this track is certainly a thorn in the side. The only one where he never won. Had the inclusion in the calendar already come to his peak of career, he would probably have made a victory. But in 2011 his zenith had already passed.

And softball fields.
