Hi there,

A new study from Chrysler Capital reveals the best states for car
enthusiasts.

*Snapshot takeaway:*

   -

   Delaware ranks as the best state for car enthusiasts
   -

   Florida plays host to the most racetracks in America
   -

   With 149 car clubs, Texas ranks best for car meet and greets

Chrysler Capital has taken a number of metrics to work out which states are
the best for car enthusiasts to visit. These metrics include the number of
people per vehicle, square miles per every race track, square miles per
every car club, square miles per every car event and square miles per every
race track experience.

Here’s what they found:

Interestingly, most of the best states for car enthusiasts are found on the
East Coast. The very best state was found to be Delaware, which has an
overall Car Enthusiast Score of 99.2/100.

Partly due to the compact size of the state, car enthusiasts can find a car
club every 100 square miles, so they won’t have to drive far to meet up
with like-minded friends. There’s also a car event every 311 square miles,
a racetrack and racetrack experience every 1,244 square miles, and just 2.4
people for every vehicle in the state.

Florida plays host to the most racetracks

When it comes to the greatest numbers of racetracks, you can’t beat sunny
Florida which has an impressive total of 24 tracks. If you’re a fan of
NASCAR, the Homestead-Miami Speedway is well worth a visit. Another great
option to consider is a trip to the Palm Beach International Raceway, which
offers a range of tracks including a quarter mile drag strip, a two-mile
road course, plus kart and mud racing tracks.
