As much as I dislike NASCAR, these comments are just wrong. The cars are not hopped up domestics. They are built-from-scratch racecars that share nothing in common with a production car, domestic or foreign.Kev111 said:It's not the drivers, it's the cars.

Don't take it all out of context. I know the cars are built from scratch race cars. What I meant was the cars dimensions are based on domestic (read ordinary) cars that hold very little interest in my mind. I Know there is a lot of talent involved I said it the first time, the drivers especially, but to reiterate, even the cars are wonders since they are based (body shape) on the family sedan and through aerodynamics and engineering they can achieve 200+ around a racetrack. I'm still not impressed enough to watch it though, the cars just seem boring to me. In my mind a real racecar is born on the track the same should be true of real sports cars, built originally for performance and speed. Other than the alternate putting togethor a chassis full of race technology and then messing it up with the plastic shape of the most ordinary cars. OK so what I should have said was "who wants to watch a bunch of domestic looking racecars on an oval", the answer of course, is those who actually like those kinds of cars, and I don't.John Stimson said:As much as I dislike NASCAR, these comments are just wrong.

And if the cars are identical, then it has to be the drivers, doesn't it?
