Most famous racetrack

I was in a debate with my dad the other day about which is the most famous racing track in the world. Naturally I said the nurburgring, but he said it was Indianapolis motor speedway. What would you say the top 3 most famous tracks are and if possible why? Here's my 3 would you agree?
1) the nurburgring
2) Indianapolis motor speedway
3) laguna seca

Toss up between LeMans or Nurburgring. So much history between the two.

daytona int'l speedway
isle of man... a race course but not really a 'track'
laguna seca
i dont think of the nurburgring of a 'track' either, more like a course at 14+ miles long

1) Le Mans

2) Daytona

3) Indianapolis Motor Speedway

I think if you take a random person off the street that's not a racing fan, and ask them to name 3 tracks, they won't name the Ring.

Probably a pretty big difference between asking this question in the US vs Europe.
