Ok, I do NOT get NASCAR. I just plain don’t and I want somebody to help me understand the fascination with it. I don’t plan on being judgemental, I just genuinely want to know why this is entertaining, and I will NOT accept “the crashes” as an answer. Drivers die crashing, that’s not entertaining to me at all.
Here’s my current, close-minded point of view on this. A bunch of dudes drive around in a fucking circle for 5 hours then drink beer when it’s over. The beer part I get, if I drove around in a circle for that long I’d need a fucking drink too. Formula 1 I understand because there is a racetrack, this shit is JUST A CIRCLE! Nothing happens! Ever! I’m sure there is skill in this, no matter how limited, or the same guys wouldn’t win all the time. Actually participating in this would probably be fun but I just don’t get watching it.
Now that I’ve torn this sport down, I’d like some feedback to tear MY opinions down so I can appreciate it. Thanks
