    Nascar...a sport I do try to watch when I have time.

    Never been to a Nascar race live...wouldn't want to go.
    I can see it to good from my own couch in the living room.

    But I have been known to sneak off to the local round track
    once in a while.

    Yes my husband more so he watches every race religiously. We did go to the las vegas race one year and it was fun and got about 5-10 feet from some race car drivers for questions on tv after the race it was pretty neat.

    I watch it when I have time, the sport is fading out fast. It seems the only way to save the sport is to go back to real stock cars...

    Diehard NASCAR fan...have to go to a race to really get full effect!! Go to Dover and Richmond every year..been to Bristol and new Hampshire..Friday and Saturday nights in the campgrounds can be as much fun as the race itself

    We watch every week. My new phone... [​IMG] ...sends me updates on my driver and video of the last lap of every race. DH raced modifieds locally so racing is part of our family.

    PS.. I would love to be part of a racing thread for the season but won't be a part of driver bashing. Everyone has drivers they love and drivers they love to hate. LIVE WITH IT! [​IMG]

    We try to watch each race [​IMG] I've been to MIS in MI a couple times, woooowheee! That's a crazy time (infield).

    Now we just watch at home, or in the summer, we go fishing and listen to it on the radio. DH always roots for Jr, I root for Edwards, no fighting or rivalry. [​IMG]

    I like it when they slacked off on some of the rules and regs last year, and allowed some of the retaliation driving. Made it much more fun!

    DH and I both enjoy watching the races. Daytona is currently 71F and sunny. Great day for some racing!

    Been a big fan for years. Love watching the big fast tracks, hate watching the short tracks....hate em!....
    Nascar has been slipping along with the economy last couple of years but a good year by Dale Jr and that would turn it around.
    and BOO.....who said they liked that punk Kyle Busch?....... [​IMG]

    We are BIG NASCAR FANS, we are waiting for the Daytona 500 to come on right now.
    We have been to Texas Motorspeedway, it rained off and on all day, but was so much fun.

    Go Mikey and Dale Jr.
