Are NASCAR drivers still struggling on road courses?
There was a time when road racing was hazardous to a NASCAR driver's career. When the sanctioning body first returned to road racing at Watkins Glen, N.Y., in 1986 and then three years later in Sonoma, Calif., many of the drivers openly expressed their dislike for right as well as left turns. Some were replaced by "ringers" -- drivers with expertise on road courses in other types of racing.
