I like the road course races because it throws such a big monkey wrench into the typical strategy for a NASCAR oval track.

I like that you can pit under green and in fact PREFER to pit under green vs yellow and wont fall a lap down because of it. I like the section cautions vs the full course cautions... even though those sectional cautions are rare. I like the elevation changes that you simply don't get at an oval. And you can't beat the furious racing during a restart.. just crazy good action!

I could stand to see another road course or 2 for Sprint during the season but would hate to lose races at other tracks.. except for Indy.
