On Thursday, New Hampshire Motor Speedway unveiled a brand-new finish line, a six-inch-thick, two-foot-wide strip of granite commemorating the official rock, or whatever granite is, in New Hampshire. Modeled after the Indianapolis Brickyard's "Yard of Bricks," it's ... well, let's be honest, it's a granite finish line, and that's cool. And that's really all we can write about it.
However, it does make me wonder ... what would other tracks use to commemorate their own local geology or geography? Let's speculate, shall we?
Atlanta: Red clay
Daytona: Beach sand
Pocono: Grease (hey, why not? let's liven it up)
And you, of course, can chime in with your own. Go!
