I would enjoy seeing JV give NASCAR a try. I don't think his personality is going to fit in as well as JPM. I also don't see him having the determination to stick it out & make a real go of it. I hope I'm wrong. He certainly has the talent to do well.

Spoken like a true NASCAR fan.

F1 is an international sport that is as big as the World Cup, I know, I know you hate soccer. But, the truth is F1 is bigger than NASCAR ever will be, because it is GLOBAL.

You don't seem to understand, there is a whole world outside of America. And they all watch and love F1. Not NASCAR, the rest of the world doesn't drive in circles.

But, to put it in perspective Daytona has a maximum of 200,000 people, but you usually see NASCAR attendance between 100,000 and 170,000.

F1 grand prix of America draws about 185,000 people, Moto GP draws 240,000 people and Le Mans draws 220,000 people.

Anyone interested in a little more accurate listing of attendance figures might want to check out:

That Moto GP figure was a 3 day total. Raceday was a little better then half that.
