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



Nope, California. How about theme races, we could make Bristol Chariot races. Talladaga run rails, that would be a nasty race.

WOW! Are you serious? You HAVE GOT TO BE CLINICALLY INSANE. Hockey is a great sport and deserves more credit than it gets, honestly who outside of the southern states can watch an ENTIRE nascar race? They race in a oval for god sakes. Hockey requires more talent and is a much more exciting sport. Oh and on that note Formula 1 > Nascar.

To answer your question, no, its the most mind-numbing 3 hours you can endure, its worse than chinese water torture. You ever need to get an answer out of someone make them watch NASCAR...

I live in California and watch all the races. Anyone who puts down NASCAR isnt a racing fan and you cant change that. Ive been around motorcross, sprint car racing, drag racing, and NASCAR growing up and i still love it. You either like it or you dont. But please dont bash it. Formula 1 is not better either. And it takes a lot more skill to drive than to play hockey.Trust me i played hockey for years and its way harder to drive 200 miles an hour close to cars in a slipstream for hundreds of miles. Dont knock it till you try it.

It is cool. Most people aren't intelligent enough to get the physics, and strategy that goes into being a winning race team. They prefer following a bouncy ball.

There is no better feeling in the world than dropping some physics and science bombs on people who call me dumb for watching racing. It's priceless hearing them stumble, and stammer for a response.

NASCAR is amazing. Anyone enjoy Denny Hamlin's move on the last lap?
