They have an established fanbase, and it seems to me the only new fans are the ones being born into families of fans. Any ideas out there that could actually make this watchable to people like me? Honestly, I've got nothing but thought there would be some funny ideas out there that we could all get a chuckle out of.

yeah, I say we make the tracks all figure 8's, thise way you are guarenteed to see some great wrecks, which is whyanyone watches nascar to begin with.

or they could just make all the races night races so NFL or College Football won't get in the way. I actually watch a lot of the sat night races, being their is nothing on tv sat. nights.

You could watch the figure 8 races where it's buses. Or they also do 'em where they tow thing, like a vehicle pulling two or three thing behind it - those are fun to watch because they slide everywhere.

As far as NASCAR is concerned, I think it's like golf. You either like it or you don't. I can't think of anything they could do to make it more interesting to someone who doesn't think it is.

I'm pretty sure that's his name...? Haven't heard the stories in a while though.

I think he may have retired too. Fuzzy memory...

I went to the minor league version NASCAR race in Joliet I think a few years ago, I saw a lot of boobies there.

Do you have a full set of teeth? An IQ over 50? Not related to your wife by blood? If you answered yes to any of these questions nascar can not be made enjoyable for you.

The only way nascar would be fun is if they had side mounted machine guns installed.

I take it they are from Texas and most likely the Houston area?
