Seriously, my dad is watching nascar right now, like he does most weekends. How can watching people drive at like 200 mph in a constant circle for like what..200+ laps be entertaining? I actually enjoy the Indy car racing, because there's something actually happening, people turning different ways, unique tracks, and stuff like that. The only interesting part i find in nascar is the crashes. Half the time my dad falls asleep during the middle of the race anyway..of course if he wakes up and i changed it he'll kick my ass lol

So anyway, back to the question, how do people watch nascar for like 2 hours and find it entertaining? what keeps you interested?
my gear:
Jackson DKMG(the one with EMG 81/85's)
b-52 AT 212 100 watt amp
old gear i'll probably sell eventually:
yamaha beginners guitar
gunmetal grey Fender squire strat
Fender 65R amp

Nascar is for people with very low IQs. I prefer F1. They can take right turns too.

I have no idea how people can watch it.
It just seems incredibly boring.
Some of the crashes are cool, but it's not worth watching just to see them.
#6
wait.. so you think nascar is boring, but you find indy car entertaining?

this does not make sense.

anyway, it can be quite entertaining if you actually go to the race.

I dunno what keeps me interested. I like it kind of, I dont watch it every weekend, usually 4-5 times a year, but I do go the race in Dover, DE every september.

Live is so much better than on TV cuz you can laugh at rednecks.

And actually, Infinion and Watkins Glen are two raceways that arent just left turns

yeah i'd have to admit it would be pretty cool to watch if you actually go to the race. And oops i meant formula 1 not indy, but i like both more than nascar. But i'm saying just on t.v, how can people watch it?

It is usually entertaining because most people that watch it on TV have a thing every week where there is like 10 people and they get like 4 drivers and bet to see who is gonna win, then they all watch the race and I just paying attention to their 4 drivers the entire time. I don't know many people that watch NASCAR and don't bet on the drivers.

That is simply because Nascar is racing for posers. They need inclined turns (basically cheating, they make you lose less speed), the cars don't go as fast, and what's up with the fake decal headlights? They put stickers on the cars to make them look like real stock cars? BS.

maybe it's because people like different kinds of racing? I know, it's shocking that everyone isn't as cool as you, isn't it?

Look! They're makin a left turn! Oh they're making another left turn! Oh making another left turn! I wonder what's gonna happen next!?! Let's go to a commercial. Come back in 10 minutes, you ain't gonna miss a fuckin thing!
