No one really cares about NASCAR. And it should not really be called a sport since none of them are really doing anything physical.

It takes a lot of strength to have your body thrown around at 170 plus miles an hour. It takes great hand and cordination to make sure you don't hit a wall. Just like you use hand and eye cordination in most sports. Yeah, I would say NASCAE is a sport.

You must've bumped your head in all the Black Friday Crowds! NASCAR is absolutely a sport! Most of those guys work out like fantics to try to manhandle a car at breakneck speeds. Just look at Jamie McMurray, or especially Carl Edwards. They are MORE in shape than most of ANY of the other professional atheletes!

I dont understand why people can think that dog racing, horse racing, even Indy car racing isa sport, but dont acknowledge that NASCAR is a sport. When NASCAR inducted the Chase format into the SPORT, that gave them a playoff format, sounds like another thing to make it a sport.

Sorry to rant, people that think this way irritate me.

I care about NASCAR! And I like to see you do what they do. Racing requires quick reflexes, a sharp mind, quick thinking, the ability to handle pressure, nerves of steel as well as good physical condition. It the sport where you go out and knock someone down repeatedly that I don't get. How's that a sport?

I'm willing to bet that the original "poster" doesn't follow ANY sports...just someone trying to stir the pot. Not even coming back to read the reaction to her posts.

These guys who race NASBORE do not train on mtn-road racing bicycles, xc or backcountry skis, kayaks, cross-training or do alot of weight training. All those sports would train muscles, lungs and brain to coordinate better than sitting on the couch and smoke cigarettes all day, which is a NASBORE standard. And anyone who drives in NASBORE could be trained to be slammed around by overeating, and creating a large innertube-shaped-insulated fatroll on the waist. No, NASBORE is not a real sport, only a hyped-up image of noise and rednecks saluting with beer in hand. Rednecks do not participate in sports that require physical endurance using lungs, and years of toned strength.

I hate to break it to you but the drivers work out quite often. So before you go start claimning they all sit on their asses smoking, better do some research.

Actually, before you go making statements you should KNOW the FACTS. Carl Edwards trains by mountain biking. MOST of the drivers not only have personal trainers, but have their homes built with gyms in them. By the way, I am completely amused by the fact the NASCAR fans are still stereo-typed as beer swilling, fat, uneducated, redneck couch potatoes. the fan base of NASCAR is unbelievably diverse. Almost half of its fans are women. And as a college-educated, non drinking, INTELLIGENT woman, i am PROUD tocall myself fan of NASCAR and its ATHELETES. My guess is you need to grab your Mt Dew and extreme Doritos and go back to watching the BORING X games. NASCAR doesnt need people like you as a fan. We arent even truely a fan base...we arent called NASCAR Nation for nothing.`

Ya know, it is amazing that Albuquerque, NM comes up quite often with a different name attached to it. I guess you like to cause trouble but under different nics.

Well, I for one am a NASCAR fan and I am NOT a redneck nor do I enjoy beer (despite the fact that I live in the city where "The King Of Beers" reigns supreme). I also have a college degree, a lucrative career, an office with a view, a home in the suburbs and not one cigarette has ever been smoked in my home. So why don't you take your preconceived notions and stereotypes and stick them where the sun doesn't shine.

Me too!! Well I'm off to work a few hours. I like daytime hours better. I work in the truama center now. Much slower in daylight hours but a lot less DWI patients. I'm filling in for two hours for a co-worker. Have a great day:)
You too. Have fun at work.
