Nascar is one of the more pointless sports in america. The least they could do is turn right and left, instead of just left ( yes, i know there road courses they race on, but leave that to the real pros of F1
and Le Mans) people in America complain about the loss of natural resources, when a good lot of fuel is consumed every nascar race day by the drivers, as well as the beer bellied fans. Those who enjoy nascar are slow to realize that american cars and engines are the worste in the world. F1 has no Ford.. or Dodge.. or Chevrolet. They have BMW, Ferrari, and BAR Honda... all of which are much more highly respected than there american counterparts.
the engineers of F1 were let loose to design the fastest car imaginable.( while still being able to turn) they came out of the draft room with a car that could go nearly 300 MPH, and stick to the ceilings with so much downforce.
