Gotta say that this is somewhat ironic coming from a guy whose user name includes "RedNeck", but I'm with you.

I love watching sport apart from motorsport. I didn't even watch Formula One when Schumacher won all his races. Its just boring.

"NASCAR has the reputation, fairly or unfairly, of appealing to a bunch of yokels, whereas Formula 1, fairly or unfairly, has the reputation for appealing to intellectuals - except for the fans of the former driver, Michael Schumacher. Formula 1 fans are supposed to be motor racing purists who take pleasure in watching cars perform the perfect lap on winding circuits, while NASCAR fans are supposed to be interested in watching cars crash as they go around in circles in a tightly knit pack."

But then they get out of their cars.

Once Danica goes to NASCAR, open wheel racing in the U.S. will be all but dead sadly.

Yeah I think she will eventually, probably in the next couple of years.

I know she's talked about it before, wouldn't surprise me at all. Some owner will offer her a shitload of money and promotion to cross over.

I don't watch racing much, but I wouldn't think Formula 1 or any kind of open wheel racing would attract the redneck crowd, seems more of a European following?

you're all dumb, f1 is ridiculous and weird now

Jenson Button has won five races, Red Bull has won a race, and McLaren and Ferrari are in complete disarray. It is amazing.

According to her TV commercial it's a good idea to peak.

Shows you what I know.

I didn't quite understand RRR's OP, and I find racing to be less exciting than watching my grass grow.

I didn't know the Indy 500 wasn't Nascar.

There aren't any guys named Helio driving stock cars.

Frankly, from my POV, nascar is being micro managed to the point interest will start waning some day. They don't even allow fist fights anymore.

Not that you're probably wanting an answer, but rather another reason to bash racing, but:
racing with cars in proximity to each other. With Indy cars, if cars are within 30 feet of each other they're close together. Also stock cars can take a bit of damage and continue....breathe too hard on an Indy car and it's into the wall and out of the race.

If soccer had Danica we'd probably whatch that too...

of course stock cars don't often go backward on two wheels along the wall like Meira just did....

One thing is that stock cars more closely resemble the cars that we all drive.

There was talk but what I heard was she was using it to get a better contract and was not serious. I also think she would be silly to switch. I do not think she would fair well in NASCAR.

I guess they are similar to my car in that there are 4 wheels and a seat.
