ummm actually they are athletes. they have physical training and stuff to make them be able to take shoving the wheel left (and right if they're spinning out or on a road course or spinning out ON a road course). also, try sitting PERFECTLY still for 4 hours or not getting whiplash. these guys are in shape. Mike Waltrip runs 3 miles a day. others work out.
it's also a team sport. do they get out and change their own tires??? NO. pit crew. people that build their cars. all kinds of teamwork, driver is just the most glamorous position on the team.
and rednecks??? Kurt Busch is from Las Vegas. Tony Stewart (the best of all) is from Indy. there are tracks in CA (2), NV, NH, NY, KS, AZ, PA, MI, and other non-southeast-redneck states.
most motorcycles can't go 210MPH on talladega like Bill Elliot did... they could only do maybe 150 AND scrape off a kickstand.
and you say "circles". no "Ovals (rockingham)", "tri-ovals (talladega, daytona)", "d-shaped ovals (michigan)", "quad-ovals (atlanta)", "egg-shaped ovals (darlington)" and "triangles (pocono)". Indy is really a rectangle, but it's called an oval.
now for the Hypocrites... ok so FAST CARS are cool. STICK SHIFTS are cool. WINNING is cool. DRAG RACING (straight line... MORE boring than "Circles") is cool. but NASCAR isn't?
ok maybe there are too many ads on wheels, but you can't honestly deny that these guys are good. YOU try it... see how long YOU last. just any old car won't hold up... the specialized cars sometimes can't cut it. like when they get loose and spin out. or like when the engine dies. or when the car just plain SUCKS (like Dale JR. @ Las Vegas, Spring 2004)
actually WATCH a race and find out what really goes on under the hood and all around before you go "rednecks" or "pussies". i suggest Talladega or Martinsville if you even read this far.
DUDE DID U SEE THAT!!! Tony Stewart just won the 2002 NASCAR Winston Cup Championship!!! GO TONY!!!.... and he's 2nd right now in 2004 (as of Golden Corral 500)
Turning left in a Chevrolet for 4 hours.
Jim: What's on TV today?
Jim: Let's go to a movie.
The official sport of in breeds, rednecks as well as white trash!
Look at all those WT at the NASCAR race!
Non-Athletic Sport Centered Around Rednecks
Jeff Gordon can be found in every Redneck's home. (NASCAR)
Coincedince? We think not.
The definition speaks for itself
An event in which big car-shaped billboards, bearing the names of hundreds of corporations, are somehow driven around a track at very high speeds by smaller, human-shaped billboards
I don't understand how NASCAR does it. How do they get those billboards to go around the track so fast?
the only sport in the world that can completely empty out a Wal-Mart store of all people on every weekend. (i actully a race stock car on the dirt ovals, so LOL!!!)
A good day to go to Wal-mart is on sunday. All of the normal customers home watching the nascar race and beating the fuck out of their wife/sister.
The sorriest excuse for a sport ever invented. An excuse for stupid white rednecks to come together and watch other stupid white rednecks turn left in a car for 3 to 4 hours. It also doubles as a 3 to 4 hour commercial in which you here and see more advertisement than actual talent. And I do not care what all of you NASCAR fans say, everyone who associates themselves with it is a redneck, regardless of where the driver or the race is. I'm sorry, but I would rather watch competetive elephant ejaculation than a NASCAR race
Stupid White Redneck 1: Hey there bud, lets go sit on our asses and smoke cigarettes and drink shitty lite beer in our wifebeaters at the NASCAR race today. Then we can go home and abuse our families in a fit of drunken rage.
Stupid White Redneck 2: Yup, sounds fun.
