Re: f1 vs nascar

I don't care much for NASCAR, but I have to admit that it does take a lot of skill to do 200mph in a pack of 50 cars that are only inches apart, or sometimes even touching. Especially, in a car that has far less technology in it than an F1 car. A lot of the wrecks are also pretty crazy. That being said, I do think it's odd that they still use carbureted engines and only have a few races with right turns. It's not that exciting on television for me, but I bet it would be nuts having the whole pack repeatedly fly by you at those speeds in person.

I fuarking looooooooooooooove F1 though. I can't think of almost anything I don't like about it.
