Can someone please tell me why it is so popular? Isn't it just a bunch of guys driving around in circles, making let turns? It has gotten more popular then ever over the past few years. I just wonder what i am mising out on. Can someone please explain?

Good question, I would like to know this, too. Maybe I am out of the loop, but I just don't get what the big thrill is.

Nascar, Stock Car Racing whatever you wish you call it is a sport that you either love it or hate it, there really is no in between..I love car racing, I have been following our local racing here at home for over 10 years and I enjoy every race I go to..the sound of the cars, the smell of the tires, your body just shakes when you are standing beside the car when it is running...it is just awsome, how it makes a person feel is different for everyone, it is the thrill of the chase, your favorite driving running through a pack of cars at pretty high speeds to get to the lead position...I guess maybe you just have to experience it to enjoy it and then again you might not enjoy it at all.......different strokes for different folks

I guess I'm in the could care less catagory. I have been to the local races. The only reason I wne twas because my friends wanted to go. Ok more like my friend's boyfriend wanted to go. The cars went round and round, we counldn't talk to eachother and there wasn't much excitment any of the time we went. I understand some love it but I still don't get it.

I'm not a Nascar fan either, so I don't see much point in the whole thing. But I don't see the point in football, either. It seems like such a dull, boring game to me- nothing seems to happen, everyone ends up in a big heap, the play stops, and it starts all over again... On the other hand, I am a huge fan of hockey, and I'm sure there are people who don't understand that. Diversity is what makes the world interesting, I guess. It's a good thing that most of us have at least 2 TV's in the house, isn't it?
