Defunct or inactive NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and Camping World Truck Series tracks

The following tables list all of the tracks previously used by NASCAR that are either closed or, for various reasons, are no longer used by any NASCAR national series.

Key to tables

  • Track: Name of the track. Either the current name of the track (as it exists today) or the last known name of the track is shown.
  • Type and layout: Approximate course length (in miles), shape, and surface type. For course length, the last known measurement provided by NASCAR is shown. Note that this figure may differ in various sources depending on the method that NASCAR or other sanctioning bodies have used to measure the track.
  • Location: The state (or province, for Canadian tracks) and city (or nearest city) where each track is located.
  • Named race(s): For many years, specific names have been given to races during a given season as a way of marketing the event. Where these names are known, they are noted next to the seasons in which that name was used.
  • Season(s): NASCAR seasons in which the track hosted an event. Note that only points-paying races are counted as part of a given series' season; tracks where additional exhibition or special races have been held are included in a separate table.
  • Notes: Any additional information or clarification that may be useful. This includes details on the track's current status, or whether the track saw further use in other NASCAR series.
