Nascar WTF? Help Me Understand.

How in the hell can your guys watch that stuff? I have some friends who drove down to Las Vegas that are at the race right now. Because fo this, I decided to tune in and try to check it out again. I lasted about 10 minutes before I had to go watch some paint dry for an upgrade in excitement.

Seriously, how can anyone sit there in front of the TV and watch cars go around in little circles for several hours? Perhaps it's more entertaining if you are AT THE RACE, (?) but trying to hang with it on TV Blows.

It is very colorful, crazy and exciting to attend in person. Amazing energy similiar to a football game IMO. Watching on TV can have its boring stretches. I bet your buddies are having a great time right now, though!

Driving left in circles is not a sport. Make half the field drive in the opposite direction and THEN you've got yourself a sport.

Watch the first ten laps, then the last ten laps, and catch all the crashes on the SportsCenter highlights.

Being married to a diehard fan is no fun either,she's in two fantasy nascar leagues,watches Friday thru Sunday(qualifying,busch race,big race),watches Speed channel and tries to converse with me about it all.

If this is my payback for my football passion it sucks,a few moths I could handle,but this shit lasts for 10 months every year and her and her sisters want me to buy that these guys are some the of finest tuned athletes in the world.

If that were the case, I would rank it up there with football in tune in weekly.

With me it's a ingrained thing. My Dad and brothers used to race when I was younger and one of my sisters hubby's family still does. Once March starts they go all over the midwest still and hit the dirt track circut and smaller oval asphalt tracks.
There's a lot of stratedgy involved outside of just driving around in a circle.

Yeah, I'm sure they'd hold their own in a decathalon against a WR, point guard, outfielder...

Racing strategy cheat sheet:

1. Don't hit a wall
2. Don't hit another car
3. Stop every so often to get gas and new tires
4. Go faster than everyone else
