The best sport consisting of racing on every level with Nextel Cup as the premiere division, Busch Grandnational Series and Craftsman Truck Series are also the premiere series of NASCAR. NASCAR Touring Series are the Featherlite Modifieds Division, Busch North, Winston West, Kodak Southeast Series, Raybestos Northwest Series, and Goody's Dash Series. NASCAR also owns the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge which is hosted at hundreds of racetracks each year.
NASCAR is longer and more exciting than Drag Racing

For all of you that think NASCAR isn't a sport, try sitting around in a non-air conditioned car (which has temperatures that exceed 100 degrees) wearing a leather suit and driving around for hours upon hours. And try taking left turns at about 140-170 mph without crashing. Call me a redneck if you like, but I damn sure love the SPORT of NASCAR.
NASCAR is damn good entertainment.

NASCAR may not seem like a sport to some. But by many, its a way of life. Spend your days reapairing, adding, and removing parts needed or not, practicing at the track, sitting still for up to 5-6 hours and not being able to get out unless rain delay or serious matters occur, fighitng the g-forces to keep ur head from moving and your arms and legs stiff so you don't swerve, trying to go around a turn 3 wide in those conditions. It's just like a thing that a lot of people do, hot-rodding. In sort-of speak. We're not saying we are the best people in the world. But NASCAR has its advantages. Take hockey... the advantages are fights. Here its crashes (just as long as everyone is ok). NASCAR is critical. *Taken from the commercial* the average fan doesnt cry over a number, doesnt limit their wordrobe to a single color (scheme), won't sit out in the rain to watch their fav person win. If you say NASCAR isn't a sport, then why is footbal or hockey or any other sport considered a "sport". Football is taking a ball up and down a field. Hockey is taking the puck up and down the rink. They both have goals, so does NASCAR. We are proud no matter who says shit.
Every sport can be put in simple terms, not just NASCAR.

Nascar is the hardest sport to do.
Nascar is boring to watch.
Nascar is for people who cant turn right.

Greatest sport ever. Extremly talented drivers show off their skills by driving in excess of 180 mph weaving through traffic and trying not to speed without a speedometer. Plus its an excuse to drink beer, and there can't be anything wrong with a sport that gives you a good excuse to drink beer. Enjoyed by many people other than rednecks although that was the main fanbase of the past
Joe: Wow did you see Dale Jr. fly past Gordon coming out of three and four during the NASCAR race today.
Dave: No, damn I missed it I was getting another beer.

its a sport that requires a great amount of skill behond most half-wits comprehension.
Did you know in Nascar going through a corner at 130 MPH with 20º of banking would cause around 3 G's. Thats 3 times your own weight. Do that for a few laps you will be breathing rather heavily for the Average Fat ass joe. Do that for 3 or 4 hours you will passing out. Comparing driving your car on the street to racing a car at 200MPH is the most idiotic thing to say. Makes you look like a half-wit with maybe less then half a brain.

Now you want to Talk about F1 thats even worse. 4.5G's cornering at times and 99.9% of the time there is no breathing whatsoever during braking and cornering. They hold their breath during this time. and breath on the straights.

a very misunterstood type of racing that is usually criticized by fans of other types of racing or people that are just too damn lazy to sit down and WATCH a race (if you like other types of racing, you will be hooked afterwards, believe me).

idiot trailer trash rednecks have given this thrilling form of racing a very very bad image. Nascar originated in the south and east but has grown extensively to the West. most modern day NASCAR drivers are not what you would call "rednecks"

Judging from most of these definitions, people need to get the facts straight about the whole purpose of Nascar. no, its NOT an "excuse for a bunch of cousin fuckin inbreds to expose their beer bellies and drink booze". and YES, it does take alot of talent to fight a 800 horsepower, 4 gear manual 10,000 RPM rear wheel drive stock car, finding traction with NO driver-forgiving computers (such as ABS or Traction control), through the corners fighting the bumps and wake turbulence of other drivers that are within 1 inch, going 4 wide at 200 mph.

Nascar is all about close, white knuckle racing. To the oval racing haters, it looks too easy. Nascar IS real racing. Road racing such as F1 is all about the driving. F1 drivers and NASCAR drivers have an equal amount of talent. But I have nothing against F1, as they can manufacture some of the fastest cars known on earth, but they must whore them out with driver forgiving aids.

consider this also. when they do races on road courses (Watkins Glen and Infineon) they have NO absolutely NO driver aids! they have to be twice as careful with the brakes, not to lock them up, and have to fight the rear end from giving out on the corners with no traction control devices. and no they do NOT drive "30 mph" like that idiot said. They do very very well throughout the course and do not crash. and since nascar is all about passing and racing close, they pass quite often.

Nascar is, and will never be understood or appreciated by non-fans. it is too stereotyped. if you are a fan of racing in general, do yourself a favor and watch a Talladega race sitting in the front row. you'll think twice.
If F1 raced on ovals such as Talladega superspeedway, and removed the driver aids, that would be funner than Nascar to watch. 43 cars doing 250+ MPH down the straights, 6 wide, inches apart, would be a thrill. On the other hand, it will then be criticized by idiots for not being real racing as they just turn left constantly...
