    I'd say that tracks these days are very competitive, progressive banking has added a LOT to the sport.

    I like when they turn right.


    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    I like it for the cars, Nascar cars sound cool and there's something about their build-up which I like, including the shape of the bodywork, a nice big 2-door basic shell. I really would like to have one with a plaincolored body in a private collection if I could.

    Do these cars not have brakes or something? There are a few times where you'd think you'd try and slow down or change course to limit any impact in those videos but the reaction times didn't seem amazing haha

    Absolutely crazy, and is that your iphone going off in the background a few times?

    When you're going 200MPH, it still takes forever to stop. It's usually best to hold your line or make minor maneuvers around the wrecks, since you have 20 other people around you trying to do the same thing.

    Those were various Windows 10 notifications .

    Oh I wasn't expecting them to stop or even get anywhere near close to shopping, there were just a few situations where I'd have thought trying to decrease speed even slightly might have helped haha

    I don't know.. it just seems like a sport for people who want to watch crashes. Without them you're watching cars drive left for a few hours.

    That can be same for every other motorsport, except just that they can turn left and right.

    Talladega is just one of those tracks where this type of thing is to be expected. But at smaller tracks where crashes don't happen often, they've been great to see so far this season (yes, left turns can be exciting). Great close, photo finishes, tons of passing and close racing. A season hasn't started out this good in years.

    Right but that's the thing, other races aren't just a circle, they're a series of different corners which can each be a challenge of their own - then you have other drivers trying to pass them on these corners, etc etc. And then you have rallying, which is in a whole other league. "Here's a really tight road, with slippy surfaces, and you have to depend on some guy sitting next to you to tell you what way to go before you can even see it"

    NASCAR tracks also have all of that. The ovals have varying degrees of banking, different surfaces, different length of turns and straightaways, etc. Average speeds in the turns are generally very high. And don't forget that you have 39 other cars around you trying to pass at speeds in excess of 170MPH. You won't find a single driver who thinks they're all the same to drive.

    I think because the aerodynamics and steering rack are tuned to go left as fast as possible, evasive actions (which will require some sort of right turn) will cause major instability issues anyway, especially when you factor in the aero effects of all the other surrounding cars.
