Have to agree with the clown. Football is always going to be top dog. NASCAR could be right there, way too many rule changes during the season to make sure the right drivers can win. Roll Tide!!

nascar is not nearly as popular as people think. high ratings? yes, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE RACE PER WEEK IN ONE SPECIFIC LOCATION. You guys always forget that. Football, baseball: at all levels, high school, college, triple A NFL, MLB is played all over the countries and the teams play daily (baseball) and weekly (football)... this means that the ratings are spread out over many games.... Imagine if there was just one football game per week (like when we have the superbowl).... then this conversation would not be taking place. Of course NASCAR crowds are huge when you have ONLY one race there per year...

How many NASCAR fans watch the race live each weekend??
How many football fans watch games live each weekend??

If anyone does the math, I'm positive they will find that more people watch live football games than races. Then you take into account the television audiences...

Football beats NASCAR
