I couldn't agree more, NASCAR is the stupidest fucking thing ever and anyone I've met who's been into NASCAR usually turns out to be a ignorant hick. Wow... cars going in circles... AMERICA'S BIGGEST SPORT!

Ironically enough I don't think race cars run on regular gasoline but they run on a kind of ethanol that's primary element is hemp. Which goes to show marijuana is just fine to power redneck race cars but you'll be goddamned if you try to use it to power your car or even god forbid smoke it.

Probably really god damn high considering all of the money tied in with the sport. I mean, i agree it's a shit sport, but as long as they are paying for their own gas i don't see why its even worth bringing up.

I agree. My dad used to watch nascar but i never could understand it. It's entertainment for the weak-minded perhaps. I would rather stimulate my mind, than dull it with that.

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

Do you mean they are given gas?

That may be i don't know, but if it is a sponsorship deal or something like that than i still don't see the problem.

Its not like someone's just giving them gas, for nothing in return.

I don't like NASCAR at all, but it isn't easy to sit in those cars going 200 mph for 500 laps or whatever.

I do agree that it is a huge waste of oil, though.

the only thing I like about nascar is when their cars blow up. I guess you could call the pit crew "sports men" because they havta change the tires and refuel in a jiffy.

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

Brain is correct, I remember seeing this on the History Channel

from wiki

Quote:

Stock car racing in the United States has its origins in bootlegging during Prohibition, when drivers ran bootleg whiskey made in Appalachia. Bootleggers needed to distribute their illicit products, and they typically used small, fast vehicles to better evade the police. Many of the drivers would modify their cars for speed and handling, as well as increased cargo capacity, and some of them came to love the fast-paced driving down twisty mountain roads. One of the main 'strips' in Knoxville, Tennessee, had its beginning as a mecca for aspiring bootlegging drivers.


The repeal of Prohibition in 1933 dried up some of their business, but by then Southerners had developed a taste for moonshine, and a number of the drivers continued "runnin' shine," this time evading the "revenuers" who were attempting to tax their operations. [4] The cars continued to improve, and by the late 1940s, races featuring these cars were being run for pride and profit. These races were popular entertainment in the rural Southern United States, and they are most closely associated with the Wilkes County region of North Carolina. Most races in those days were of modified cars. Street vehicles were lightened and reinforced.


Mechanic William France, Sr., moved to Daytona Beach, Florida, from Washington, DC, in 1935 to escape the Great Depression. He was familiar with the history of the area from the land speed record attempts. France entered the 1936 Daytona event, finishing fifth. He took over running the course in 1938. He promoted a few races before World War II.

France had the notion that people would enjoy watching "stock cars" race. Drivers were frequently victimized by unscrupulous promoters who would leave events with all the money before drivers were paid. In 1947, he decided this racing would not grow without a formal sanctioning organization, standardized rules, regular schedule, and an organized championship. On December 14, 1947, France began talks with other influential racers and promoters at the Ebony Bar at the Streamline Hotel at Daytona Beach, Florida, that ended with the formation of NASCAR on February 21, 1948.

NASCAR was founded by William France, Sr., on February 21, 1948, with the help of several other drivers of the time. The points system was written on a bar room napkin. The original plans for NASCAR included three distinct divisions: Modified, Roadster, and Strictly Stock.[5] The Modified and Roadster classes were seen as more attractive to fans.[5] It turned out that NASCAR fans wanted nothing to do with the Roadsters, which fans perceived as a Northeast or Midwest series.[5] The Strictly Stock division was put on hold as American automobile manufacturers were unable to produce family sedans quickly enough to keep up with post-World War II demand.[5] The 1948 schedule featured 52 Modified dirt track races. The sanctioning body hosted its first event at Daytona Beach on February 15, 1948. Red Byron beat Marshall Teague in the Modified division race. Byron won the 1948 national championship. Things had changed dramatically by 1949, and the Strictly Stock division was able to debut with a 20-mile (32 km) exhibition in February near Miami.

Yeah that's the show I saw, it was pretty cool.

The moonshine runners would literally steal ambulance engines, trick out their cars, race them in NASCAR, and then the next day they'd literally be running moonshine in the exact car they just raced the day before.

its definitely not easy to sit in that car, but a lot of gas it is! if each car gets 5 MPG (http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=700065) then the daytona 500 with about 40 +/- cars = 20,000 miles / 4000 gallons of gas, jeez! And i wonder how much gas the nascar people's big trucks burn on the way to the race

Im not certian if it's the same in NASCAR but on the oval carts that we race the right side is longer than the left and they are a bitch to turn right.

Nascar has utterly failed to attract African American race car drivers.

It's because they realize that it's 1,000,000X cooler to slam dunk a basketball or run 30 yards for a TD than aimlessly driving around a track.

Why can't this be in OTD

Nascar hasn't attracted african american drivers because no on wants to sponsor a driver that drives slower than shit and the seats in the cars wont lay flat. Also even though you can put 22's on a crown vic they wont fit on a Nascar.

I agree that NASCAR is the least entertaining 'sport' out there. I also agree that it takes a bit of skill to be able to do what they do. Third, what does the gas and oil they use have to do with whether or not it's a sport?

Technically yes its a sport. Just a very lame one. Rally Races are better thats a given. And there are no blacks in Nascar because it appears owned, governed, and viewed by a majority of racists. Not everyone in the crowd or on the CEO boards are wearing their clan clothes to the Daytona Im sure, but I doubt ule have to look far to find an underlying sense of racism and bigotry.

NASCAR is alot more complicated sport than most of you think. Anyone who's been over 150 knows that.

I hit 180 the other day for maybe 30 seconds and it was pretty fucking intense. I can't imagine being at or above that speed for ~3 hours in traffic.

So what is everyone saying about the gas? I fail to see the point.

Does anyone feel the sport should be banned based on gas consumption?

yay monaco grand prix tomorrow. i'm an f1 fan...specifically for kimi räikkönen (Ferrari) and heikki kovalainen (mclaren).

fuck NASCAR. fair enough you need to have some "talent" to go round and round a track really fast. but to be honest, the technology being used in f1 cars, the tracks and the strategies are much more intelligent and fun to watch than NASCAR imo. of course, both are gas wasting sports...but now the F1's going "green."

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:

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:

I hit 180 the other day for maybe 30 seconds and it was pretty fucking intense.





the fastest I've been was 215mph on a quarter mile run, it
fucking hurts, I have some family in braselton a couple work
road atlanta and I've played on the track there, definitely more
interesting than an oval track but by far one of the trickiest
is still dirt track, imagine runnin 100-120mph sideways
through most of the race on a slick muddy track






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...

Pris, you race.




I come from a long line of racing, I had a quarter mile car and
a couple for the SCCA circuit, my mother ran powder puff derbies
and turkey runs back in the day, she was also starting to get
into the big leagues before all the rules were set in organized
racing, they wouldnt let her race because they found out she was
pregnant, she paid a driver to run her car so they outlawed the
396 engine, after she dropped to a small block one of the owners
put cash up on her car, if it ran the race, she'd lose the car

prior to my mom, much of my family ran moonshine

my boss tried to follow me back to the shop when I was driving
his spitfire back from the body shop, a few days later he asked
if I'd ever raced on a track, he sponsors a dirt track car and
the driver is out for part of the season because he hasnt been
beat, the local corruption has him sidelined so they're looking
for someone to fill in so the car can still run...

the local track does a weekend of events, we estimate they pull
almost half a million each weekend... and that's mostly small time races
