It's funny that NASCAR seems to be on the decline in the U.S.A. Here in Canada, or at least in my part of the country, it is growing huge.
People who had not even heard of a stock car are now entering Nascar fantasy pools, wearing the hats and t shirts, watching the races etc.
For the past 10 years I had to travel to Montana to purchase anything racing related, now I can go across the street in my small town and get tons of stuff. There are entire stores devoted to selling Nascar merchandise in one half and NHL (hockey) stuff in the other.
Not to mention every truck with a 24 or a 8 in the back window.
I have to defend the going around in circles comment just about once a week, but there is alot more to it. I used to bug my brother about it all the time when he watched and I didn't. But most of the time when someone actually watches a race, they are hooked after that. Speed, sound, color its all there...
