I'm not a Nascar fan to begin with. Watching 40 cars go in a circle averaging 160 MPH, planning a
pass 5 laps in advance and all running the same engines somehow doesn't excite me. I know I just really pissed off a million NASCAR fans, but I would rather attend a dirt track race.

As for the Darlington race, well, besides a bunch of race cars, comparably equipped with each driver having his foot in the radiator, bumper to bumper, all trying to scrape the banners off the wall in the same race line, competition caution pit stops where no one lost their position, caution flags for reasons that I somehow missed, no shots of the infield with all of the activity it was pretty exciting to watch the cars go into and out of the pits and see the reduced pit crews change tires.

Maybe the reason that I'm not enamoured with NASCAR racing is really because I attended one, very close to the front row, at PIR in Arizona, stupidly without noise blocking headphones and I literally lost my hearing in both ears. It took a couple of weeks before I could hear anything again. I now wear aids because of that experience, I'm convinced.
