At track ideally should be 4.3km in length, if you take Interlagos and Hungaroring as the 2 shortest tracks that arnt a street circuit.
Most US "road course" tracks would need a bit of work to them in terms of lengthining, run off areas, access areas and pit facilities.
Some Lengths & Figures:
Road Atlanta - 2.54 mi (4.088 km) = 75 Lap, 306.600km race distance
Laguna Seca - 2.238 mi (3.602 km) = 99 lap, 303.138km
Watkins Glen - 3.40 mi (5.43 km) = 57 Lap, 309.510km
Road America - 4.048 mi (6.515 km) = 47 Lap, 306.205km
Infineon Raceway (NASCAR) - 1.990 mi (3.2 km) = 95 Lap, 304.000km
Infineon Raceway (CHAMP CAR) - 2.22 mi (3.57 km)= 85 lap, 303.450km
Daytona (Sports Car) - 3.56 mi (5.7 km) = 53 Lap, 302.100km
Just for some fun:
Bristol Motor Speedway - 533 mi (.858 km) = 350 Lap, 300.300km
Martinsville Speedway - 526 mi (.847 km) = 355 Lap, 300.685km
All figures are based on the formula 300km devided by lap distance plus one more complete lap to get the laps and distances per race. As to the FIA code to determine race lengths.
