    I was reading about the car race in Indianapolis today. About 100,000 people paid around $100 apiece (plus any travel expenses) to see a bunch of Euro cars race. Only most of them didn't race because they didn't like their tires.

    That is even weirder that watching souped up cars drive around in a circle for three or four hours.

    Too much to go into here about what happened. www.F1.com, any of the major sports pages, SI, Foxsports, etc.

    I have been to 6 different Formula One races and they are far more interesting than Nascar.

    But Nascar fans will jump up and say the same about their sport.

    Cars are cars to me. Watching cars drive around in a circle is boring. Unless they crash, which is semi interesting.

    I would rather watch cricket.
    Which reminds me, wtf were the Aussies thinking when they got spanked by Bangladesh this weekend? If they don't shape up, the Aussies are in serious danger of losing The Ashes series.

    Lack of concentration. They were 500-1 picks to win. Then you go and drop a catch. Combine that with Ashraful's century and...well.....

    Let's see - Formula 1 - Up to 25 gear changes per lap.

    Nascar - Ummmm...4? 5?
