    Talking NASCAR::whats sooo good about it?

    Hey,

    I was playing TDU today and i came across this guy that loved NASCAR, he and I had an argument about NASCAR and i think that it's quite easy and it doesn't involve any skill like D1 drifting or something.

    This is my opinion and you can agree or not but i truly think that a dog could sit in the seat of a NASCAR and give it a good go.

    Of course it involves skill, have you seen how close those cars get at high speeds? overtaking isnt easy, i don't think you need as much skill as an F1 driver or anything like that, but its not a walk in the park

    O and i'm not a fan of nascar, just never got into watching it

    I shall enter with this
    If the video above doesn't show click here to view it.


    And leave with a few words.
    Nascar does take skill to drive when your racing a 800HP car at 200mph with a few feet between a driver behind, to the side and infront of you . Still not my kind of motorsport .

    hmmm yes, I think they are a kind of modern American gladiators, along with wrestlers and other silly sports. The crowd is listening the engine noises and only waiting for someone to screw something up and cause a huge crash. I agree with tWm. Simple fun for simple minds.

    I've always gone with the thinking that small things entertain small minds. Nascar makes me nauseous anyway.

    +1 There is a lot of skilll in nascar. There is are of things that go into the sport. Most people would not guess that it kind of is a team sport. Look up what a bump draft is. I'm not a fan of circle track racing but like I said, there is a lot more to nascar than what people think...

    But there not driving at 200 mph.....And its not STOCK car racing its aluminum body wrapped around a tubular chassis made in a shop racing....STOCK car racing would entail they actually race STOCK cars, like the ones you see in the show room. And what happens if they try and turn right? CRASH BOOM......dead!

    The only reason why I used to watch it was because I always expected a crash.

    The amount of crashes slowly died out so I stopped watching it, lol.

    At least the drivers have guts . I mean i've seen alot of Nascar crashes and you definitely need alot of guts and courage to race with the track with all the drivers .. and get dizzy with them .

    Yes. Because I'd love to tour the USA watching cars make two corners.

    I'll stick with the Isle of Mann TT, thanks.

    Haha this is funny .... Most Brits don't understand the concept of NASCAR they see it has a motorsport that involves nothing more than going around in an oval 500 times on a Sunday afternoon. Thats all but like any sport when you learn the rules, become familiar with the sport and watched it a few times it starts to make sense.

    I like Nascar I'm not gonna lie but then again I am very pro 'Merican sports type of person so its pretty obvious I would like it.

    Nascar is a good sport and you know what ? I find Nascar more exciting than f1 and thats before we have even talked about the Nascar road races .... now those make for some essential viewing .

    So in conclusion NASCAR is a good sport and frankly I don't know what eveyones beef is with the sport, its fast, its entertaining, its exciting and there is plenty of overtaking. I mean honestly what more could you want from a motorsport ?????

    Still it doesn't beat sportscar racing though ..... Sportscar racing is the future according to the great man that is Tom Kristensen .
