I was wondering how many NASCAR fans we have on this Forum. I am a NASCAR fan and have been since I was little…just in case, Johnson & Nixon was Presidents. Anyway, Wife and I love to go to the races when they are at the Kansas Speedway and planning on going to Talladega next spring.

Can't say that I really love it but since I like most motorsports, I do watch a lot of NASCAR....
Closest track like that to me is Detroit but have visited several smaller tracks near home. (these local races are classes in 'Stock Car'....

PS. why are you whispering in the original post???? I could hardly hear you.

Closest track for me is Loudon, NH. I had season tickets for a few years and went to both races there every year for 5 or 6 years in a row. Since I've had kids (I'm now up to 3 of them : 6, 4 and 2 years old) I don't have time to follow it anymore. So I do like it, but I don't watch much or attend at all anymore.
I'd love to make a trip out to Watkins Glen for a race sometime, though.

I could never get into it. It's not that I don't appreciate the skill involved, I just prefer other motorsports much more.

(Just give me something with a street course, really.)

My wife and I went up to Montreal for the Grand Prix with some friends several years ago. Now that was a BLAST! We drove up on a Thursday and stayed through Monday. The whole city was a party for days. And F1 racing is much more exciting than NASCAR. Montreal is a great place to visit anytime, but that weekend it is amazing.

:eek:

F1 is more exciting.....OK I don't think so. F1 is fun but I suggest you go to a NASCAR race too. Put your red neck hat on and you will have a great time. F1 is a little too too if you know what i mean. The racing is OK but usally once some one get in the lead that's pretty much it unless the driver screws up. Of couse there is Indy car racing....now that is boring.

I said not a fan, but doesn't mean I "don't like it". Just I don't watch much of it on TV, get a little on the boring side to watch a full race. never really gone to a real race. I'm sure that could change my mind. I don't watch superbike racing on tv either, but I like going to the races. Still wouldn't consider myself a real fan of it, just and occasional spectator. I think to be a real fan you have to follow the drivers and teams.

Lil from column A, lil from column B.
F1 is like the lottery sport, $18000 steering wheels, Nascar is more of the neighbourhood sport, $500 steering wheel.
Both run cars way outa my price range.

I love the old joke about the difference between F1 and NASCAR:
Reporter to the F1 engineer
Reporter: What happen to your engine?
Engineer: We had a left #3 cylinder intake valve not reach it peek opening rate point causing the #3 exhaust to have slight deviation in over all harmonic balance causing a major malfunction in the engine.

Reporter to NASCAR Crew Chief
Reporter: What happen to your engine?
Crew Chief: It dun blew up!
