The entire problem here is nascar. nascar is NOT a sport. Auto racing is. This is one of the major reasons nascar has plummeted in ratings. They now put themselves up to compete with Football, soccer, baseball and basketball which ALL have higher ratings. So much less nascar, other sports have taken over because of this nascar folly. But what's new, nascar is nothing now more then a TV show. As they ALWAYS say, this is what the fans wanted : )
1 ) Name one other sport worldwide that is wholly owned by ONE family ?
2 ) Name one other sport you can not go to any book store and buy an official copy of the rules. (nascar says the rule are a secret NOT for the public) Why would anyone watch a sport and not even know the rules ?
3 ) Name one other sport where when the officials are caught cheating they are not immediately fired or even prosecuted ? (ie. the phony cautions)
SO you decide, I say NO, not anything even resembling a sport.
