20 furlongs is about as long as Daytona International Speedway
(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 20 furlongs in length. Although the tri-oval design is said to allow for greater visibility during the race, the real reason for the then-unique design was that plot available for construction of the track was only 350 acres and could not accommodate a traditional oval layout of appropriate length.
