I have to admit, I watch Nascar.  But it's only because I'm in a pool
at my favorite bar.  I don't own any geetch, I don't have a favorite
driver, and I don't swear at the TV when Stewart knocks someone else
into the wall.  It's motorsports after all and I can appreciate it for
that, though it's far less genuine or real in many people's minds. 
It's still guys driving cars fast.  The technical aspects are still of
interest to me.  I also believe it's become more about marketing that
motorsports.  Besides it's fun to watch the true believers have a
meltdown when stuff happens.
