    Stereotype much?

    Fat fans, check
    Southerners, check
    Incest, check
    Uneducated, check
    Toothless, check
    Wal-Mart, check


    You may want to look at where drivers are coming from these days and where a lot of the races are held.

    PS: You left out the especially clever part about all the left turns.

    Talladega was fun to be there, but I don't care to watch it on TV.

    I love it when you get drunk before you leave work. You always talk dirty to me when you do. If I ever dump my sister you better watch out.

    I'm not above an incestuous threesome. Actually, I'm often below it, literally.

    I admit I tried to like Nascar, but it's like someone else above said...you either love it or hate it.


    At least it's better than golf.

    like dirt track and paved oval spuermodifieds....but don't like Nascar. I would love to attend a real live nascar race though! I am sure that Live it would be a real thing to see and hear and feel. I love F1, road racing of all kinds, and of course, BTC GTC and WWC.....

    I like racing, period. I prefer open-wheel racing, but the more I learn about the personalities of the NASCAR drivers, the more I enjoy the series. What's not to like about big V-8 engines and speeds close to 200 mph. It looks easy, but I'm certain that it's not.

    I took a friend who is a die-hard NASCAR fan to the IRL race at Texas. During the first caution he said "Damn, these cars go faster under yellow than the cup cars do under green."

    Rufus... From Oklahoma.... Is calling this "redneck". :rofl

    The last 3 series championships have been won by a guy from CA, his teammate won 4 titles, he's from CA via IN - not exactly the stereotype.

    Not athletes... When was the last time you drove 200 mph in 145deg heat? For 3 hours straight? Now add 40 other cars about 2 inches apart.

    When I pose this question to any of the untold masses of adoring fans the typical response I receive - "the wrecks are awesome".

    I personally don't get it but do agree that it is better than golf.

    i wasn't into nascar but a friend was. if you hang out around it enough and the whole never ending soap opera slowly sinks in. some are nice guys and some can be douche bags. robbie gordon will always crash at some point during the race. its fun cheering for toyotas in front of die hard chevy people.

    i think the key is to not watch all the race. have a nice sunday afternoon and when its beer:thirty go back in the house and catch the last 40 laps.
