Oh goodie, the continuation of more long trips for the Busch regulars (and more domination by Cup drivers and other whackers):

Montreal isn't a "long trip" like Mexico City was. It's almost the exact same distance from Moorseville North Carolina as Loudon, New Hampshire. In fact a large amount of the schedule is a longer trip than Montreal. (Cali, Phoenix, Texas, Chicago, Kansas etc).

Brenden, even if that's true, the trip still seems longer because of the logistics.  The drivers and other personnel must carry passports and the haulers need to go through customs.

Indy Car, Sports Cars, ARCA and even the defunct ASA series have all been going to Canada for years. In fact the majority of all professional sports have teams in Canada and there was even an NFL game in Toronto last year. So the logistics aren't that big of a deal. Canada accounts for a large chunk of the North American automotive industry. The big three all have several plants in Canada and a number of models are uniquely manufactured in this country. NASCAR has a large following that unlike in the United States is still on the rise. I think the Frances just went to Mexico City for "show" to make everyone think NASCAR was this big international phenomenon. Canada is certainly deserving of one NASCAR event. Hopefully they finally get that oval constructed in the Niagara Falls area so we don't have to go to the Montreal road circuit anymore. Though so far both races at Montreal have certainly been memorable.
