To all of you people knocking NASCAR show me any other sport that sells 100,000 tickets on average to every game, event, whatever. Look at the stands at a baseball or basketball game and notice all the empty seats. Baseball has got to be the most boring pastime there is since the so called athletes spend half the time sitting on a bench and the other half standing in the field waiting for something to happen and they might spend 2 or 3 minutes actually playing the game. And to YADAYADAYADA you are just to stupid to argue with to make a statement like that. You obviously dont have a clue what type of people are NASCAR fans. So just go get back back in bed with your sister and continue inbreeding.

Well, if someone can explain what is "athletic" about sitting in a car and going in circles for 400-500 miles then I'm sure we'd all feel so enlightened...

Ah, the attractions of NASCAR. A stylish crowd of excellent dressers. Physically attractive people. Wonderful ambiance. Haut food and drink. Interesting endeavors watching things go round and round. Enlightening commentary. Travelling to and from in some of the more desirable of vehicles. A pleasant way to spend time. Uplifting. You can scratch whatever needs it. And it's on TV when you just cannot make the track. Experience of a lifetime. Ciao

Nascarnope, I would like to see your fat lazy ass strapped in a race car for 3-4 hours in 150 degree heat with no break going 180 miles an hour. If you lose concentration or make the slightest mistake it could cost you your life. If you dont like it dont watch it, just change the channel even though I doubt that your pea brain could successfully operate a remote control.

Hey, come on, watching NASCAR races on T.V. is fun! Where else can you see real live fans with green teeth, and in some instances, no teeth at all! And let's not forget those tank tops, tube tops, tube socks and all kinds of clothing that one so rarely gets a chance to see otside of a trailer park! I say keep NASCAR on t.v. it's soooo entertaining!

Greg, take a look at this brainless argument about NASCAR ... talk about impressing. You'll never see those dolts offer any travel advice on this site ... basically, they're the stay-at-home types, oh, except when they're at the track watching and waiting. Have a good weekend. Ciao

Hey Phttttt;

Better get those shoes off and redo your counting.

OK, conceed that 100,000 go to a big NASCAR race. 1 race x 100,000 people = 100,000.

15 MLB games a day X an average of 20,000 = 300,000.

Hey, XXX, I'll make you a deal ... I'll stick to something I know, like thinking, and you'll avoid doing things you know not, like trying to think. BTW, aren't you the same XXX that posters branded as the most negative poster on Fodors? Yep, I think that's you, boy-o. Ciao

As this is a travel site, perhaps we can get serious again. Maybe we can discuss the best way to travel from one race to the other on the NASCAR scene and good truck stops, er I mean restaurants to stop at in between.
I also think that we should consider stopping the NASCAR fan bashing as I'm sure many of them are well educated and have degrees in such things as, well they at least went to the 6th grade because you have to go until you're 16 and, oh--------------------------

Dale Erhnhard, Richard Petty, Al Unser . . .

Those guys are BUFF? Are you kidding me? Good lord, Tiger Woods could kick their butts.

To be fair, however, Nascar racers could probably smackdown professional bowlers. But that's not saying much.

The fact that Nascar is popular is a really sad argument. That just shows that there's a large underclass in the United States. Heck, WW wrestling is popular, but that doesn't make it a real sport worthy of any respect.

I agree with Leon or whomever he goes by. I have attended quite a few races in my past years and please, they are hicks, beer drinking guzzlers and the women certainly do not look or act like ladies, they look like tramps. Call me bias, or whatever not my kind of stuff, the reason I attended was due to the fact my boyfriend @ the time sponsored quite a few (he owns a big corporation)
and, even though we always had skybox seats, no one could pay me to sit in the bleachers......

No L I believe it is you that gets the reward for most negative poster. You contribute no useful travel tips. I also nominate you for most ignorant poster as well.

From the posts I am seeing today it appears several other people are tiring of your broken record routine. You have basically no credibility on this board anymore so how about caioing on out of here.

CYA!

Blahblah- Eloquently put and yes, I can even operate two remotes at once if need be. I think Leone and others have more than adequately spoken to the attraction (or lack thereof) of NASCAR.

My initial query (albeit derisive in tone) was really about how NASCAR became a "sport" all of a sudden and why it now trumps coverage of major championships in other sports, as well as baseball highlights, on ESPN. I mean, do we care who won the Goody's Epsom Salt 200 or whatever? I guess some people do consider it a aport but I'll take your word for it. You can peruse the rest of the posts to see there are many people who wonder the same thing as well as many others about this phenomenon, to put it politely. That's all I was getting at...have fun at the track this weekend.

As Leone says...ciao.

Well, to the anti's, I bid you farewell with a big CIAO. Now, if you'd like to discuss some travel, I'm your person. But if it's going to be more of this round and round car business, well, then I refer you to the previous posters ... besides, what's to contribute? Now, how many of you anti's have been more than 100 miles from where you were dropped? Okay, show those hands ... don't be bashful. Hmmm, not so many. Something tells me value added time is over, so I think I'll just boogie on outta here and start the weekend. Need I say ciao once again?

Great idea L! Be careful if you actually back away from your computer and venture outside - the light will be pretty bright for an internet junkie like yourself who is accustomed to staying inside day and night.
