    Nowhere near as interesting a the Twenty-Four 'Heures du LeMans', but still a decent watch ...Far, far superior to any product NASCAR can produce

    Yeah, open wheel guys always dominate in NASCAR immediately.

    Open wheel guys aren't leaving their chosen sport in droves... The ones that do make the move are usually long past their prime, as a competitive driver... They usually just make the move to NASCAR because it beats staying home on weekends ... On the converse, I cant think of any nascar fellas moving over to open-wheel at all. (except for maybe Fat-Tony Stewart..but, he came through the ranks as a NASCAR guy..so the move was inevitable)

    Do you check facts before spouting off? Stewart was doing open-wheel before he was in NASCAR.

    You may wanna double you efforts on that reading compression issue you suffer from.... I made reference to Fat Tony.. Good thing he left when he did... He'd be too fat to fit in the cockpits these days.. Guess that's one of the luxuries of doing nothing but turning left for 2 hours, like they do in nascar.. You can afford to be obese, and still be competitive (AND, you can put your nachos & donuts in your lap for when you get hungry)

    Racing Sprint cars is far more difficult than racing in Winston Cup (or whatever they're calling these days)....I've been to a few of those in real life.. Those dudes have some elephants sized balls

    You can just admit you're an idiot without the long paragraph.

    Aren't the powers-that-be contractually obligated to change Tonys nickname to "Super-Egg" or "Chin to the third power" this year ?... I thought I read that somewhere..

    just as long as no one actually considers nascar or any form of car racing to be "a sport," it's all good.
