As a Brit I don't get to see much NASCAR and have only been to one race (Daytona for Richard Petty's last win). For sheer spectacle and close racing it is amongst the best. Plus you can see the whole course at an oval, shock horror: the organisers think about the spectators. Not something that happens when you re-mortgage to buy tickets for a Grand Prix.
On that subject: here we have a top NASCAR driver competing in a lower formula for the fun of it and to help promote grass roots sport. I cannot imagine any of today's GP boys doing that unlike their counterparts in the 1950-60's.
So get well soon Mr Stewart and get back in one of the crazy sprint devices soon.
