Look at Dover versus Sears Point:

I love watching Sears Point on TV. Between the tire walls coming down the hill and other cars taking the line, not many cars have fenders at the checker. It's a pretty small place for those big cars. I watched my Nephew test his "west" car one day, which is basically a Busch car. I can't imagine a full grid. There's just no room!

But yeah, I always wanted NHMS to build a real road course and have one of their Cup races there. I'd even go...maybe.
