Seriously Rigs, how do you do it?
I find baseball boring as hell.... but to watch 20 cars going in circles?!? The ONLY good thing about Nascar racing is when shit goes wrong and you see flames and debris flying all over the place!

The day they put weapons on Nascar's is the day I will proudly proclaim I am the biggest Nascar fan in the history of the sport.


We really need a Interstate 76 reboot...

It's really not that bad, to be honest. Yes, some races are pretty boring, usually the 'cookie-cutter' tracks like Kansas and Chicago in the middle of the season I don't typically watch unless I'm trying to take a nap...lol...But it's exciting on the larger tracks such as Daytona and Tally, with speeds up to and over 200mph, with bump drafting, it can get nerve-wracking in the final laps when you want your driver (#2, Brad Keslowski, in Rusty's Wallace's old car, who was my fav until he retired) to win and not get caught up in a last lap 'Big Juan'. (Or alternatively you want the punks to wreck out, #24 Jeff Gordon and #48 Jimmy Johnson) It's cool to watch on the super-small tracks like Martinsville and Bristol for all the bumping and pushing, especially the night races. Most cars come out pretty beat up from those.

In addition to all that, have you ever tried actually racing a stock car at a track? It's not easy, and certainly not as easy as it looks on tv! I took a 30-lap driving course in one at Pocono years ago and nearly pissed my pants! Then you get into a simulator like Nascar Racing 2003 or iRacing and it takes a long time to get good, especially at the 'flat' tracks like LV, Indy, Homestead and Cali.

For all that, I'll admit that the last few years my interest has been waning, but with the introduction of the new Gen6 cars, I'm really getting into it again. The cars look like real race cars now, not sheet metal boxes with stickers made to look authentic. Seriously, check the new cars out, they look much better than before! In fact, it's sparked some interest in me in giving the ol' Bluesnews car a makeover...it's in serious need of one... Cool
