I cant see how going around and around 500 times a sport..and all the gas they use.. :shake:





I have to disagree, it takes endurance, fast reflexes and a great
deal of strength to make those laps, I'll admit it's not rally
racing or formula 1 but have you ever gone 200mph and tried to
keep a car on the road?  try running a dirt track or grand
national race just once

and no, I dont like nascar




i agree with what you have said, but still it does not compare to a real sport liike long distance running or wrestling or boxing.




How does it not?  Do long distance runners have to piss on themselves mid race? Wrestlers? Boxing?  Very rarely is death a factor in any of the sports you mentioned.  NASCAR drivers have more guts than  blue whales.  :foshizzle:

Giant oval tracks are boring. It's all about the MotoGP.

That's the worst argument ever.

I'm not a NASCAR fan, but apparently they are fun as fuck live, and if people wanna dig on NASCAR then let 'em.

No, Fuck That.

Nascar fans deserve to be ridiculed.

I am okay with auto racing, but NASCAR, with it's slow-ass speed limits, lame cars, stupid drivers, and boring "4 left turn" tracks is absolute nonsense.

I reserve the right to ceaselessly mock any idiot stupid enough to admit to being a NASCAR fan.

Exactly.

I want to see cars going 500mph through the middle of cities, making hairpin turns several inches off the ground with bugs slapping into the visors of the drivers.

If serious injury or death is not almost inevitable in the course of a racing season, I don't want to watch it.

you obviously arent from the south are you. anyways, nascar drving takes alot of skill also, everybody i know who watches nascar is in a nascar pool (betting) which porbably makes it a little bit more interesting. me personally i dont like nascar but i know a lot of people who do. anybody who has a serious love for cars is a fan of nascar, even if they arent die hard fans they still enjoy it. i think the last 10 laps are pretty exciting





uh, not at all. Every single motorhead i know (which is alot of people) hates nascar with a passion. Nascar's a joke; watch F1 if you want fast cars and MotoGP if you want action.

Everyone's saying 'oh it's crazy to go that fast it takes skill' but not many realize that driving on a track is completely different from driving on the regular road. Almost all professional racers whether they ride motorcycles or drive cars will agree that they would never dream of even doing a fraction of the crazy shit they pull off regularly on the track if they had to drive on regular streets. It's a completely different thing.

I live in the heart of NASCAR country for the past 24 yrs now & have never even been to 1. In fact, we live about 20 miles from a major track & we're the only town nearby the track with hotels & restaurants to accomodate all the spectators, drivers, crew, sponsors, etc. We get jammed-up in this little town.
I guess some people get into it, but I never saw the attraction.  :stoner:

One of my buddies from my hometown would always race on friday nights at the dirt track in abilene. It's pretty cool being down in the pits with all the weekenders watching them scramble to fix whatever shit their car is giving them. Then them staying up all night rebuilding the engine to race on Saturday. lol

There's a track about 30 minutes from me that has all kinds of supercars and bikes racing all the time. It's in Cresson, TX. Place is set up like it's a golf course. Houses all around the track, membership fees, and the like...
