    I'm sure it must be fun to be there in person, hearing all the engines and watching shit whiz by at 200 mph, but I cant see why anyone would watch it on tv? 200 laps of nothing but left turns, it is mind bogglingly stupid. Its sad that this is the preferred form of racing in the U.S.

    Nascar is the absolute worst. Especially after watching F1. Or even worse, if you're waiting for F1 to be on and right before it is Nascar.

    It's surprising how little racing talent is in NASCAR. Did you know that at the 2 road course events, some teams swap out their drivers for road course "specialists" because their drivers can't hack turning right!

    There are exceptions to that, of course. Dale JR. races a C5R in the... well, some sports car series. Waitasec, he smeared that car all over the great immovable in a practice run. Oh well.

    yup and set his nuts and chin on fire too.


    I love seeing interdisciplineary shit. I have one of those bbc shows, forgot what it was, but it had jeremey clarkson, in his peice of shit normal car, a ford wrc car and a f1 car all on the same track to see what was actually fastest. The f1 car started about 2 minutes later and still kicked everyones ass. It was awesome to see the differences in handling, speed, braking.

    OH yeah, i guess I'll just come into this corner at 140 and tap the brake a bit?!!!!

    If anyone wants to host a 500mb file, I'll upload it. Its seriously awesome. Not so sure how well dem good ol boys(nascar drivers for the retards out there) would do on a course with !gasp! right turns

    well what about drag racing? they don't even have to turn at all unless they're heading towards a wall. but why do people like it? because they get to see modded up 4000hp big block V8's making heaps of noise and because they're fast. i love it. but yeh, i went to the nascars when they came out to Australia a few years ago and it was pretty boring besides a few crashes.

    I know that the NASCAR drivers are capable of driving F1 cars...I think it was Jeff Gordon or someone else that swapped cars between a F1 racer. Supposedly he did almost as good.

    Then again I don't watch it...the only interesting part is when they pit in...it's boring.

    I rather watch baseball then NASCAR.

    Nascar driver are pretty much drivers who failed at every other type of auto racing. When thier cars get PREPPED to go onto the the street courses like Laguna, thier true driving skill colors really show through. Granted I doubt I could drive at 200mph and have the sack to draft behind somebody and then overtake them only being INCHES away......yeah, props fot that, and props for being able to concentrate for that long....but everything else is:wuteva:
