superdowg316: The NASCAR criticism is undeserved. No, we're not a bunch of hillbillies. I'm Aussie and I find NASCAR to be really good. There are BS calls here and there, but there's still actual racing going on and the commentators are still talking about the race.

Sunday's Daytona 500 had around 30+ lead changes alone.

I think the comparison to F1 is bad really. It's like comparing V8 Supercars to IndyCars, it's two different series.

And, more importantly, shut up and enjoy racing, not b*tch about which one is better.


Although they're different forms of racing, the criticism that gets thrown Nascar's way is completely warranted. When your race outcomes are contrived and artificially manufactured then you pretty much lose all credibility. Continuous phantom yellows, excessive time under caution, the Aaron's lucky dog rule, and Green/White/Checkers make the series indefensible. I don't get how you can watch a series with as awesome of racing as the V8 Supe
