    When most people think of sports, the first thing that comes to mind is probably football, basketball, maybe baseball, or soccer - usually a competition that involves a type of ball and two teams going head to head. But NASCAR is a different kind of sport, it is a motorsport. Forty purpose-built race cars with a team of pit crews, engineers, and mechanics battle every week on a variety of racetracks across the country. Just like any other sport, NASCAR has its own rules of competition, scheduled events, a points system, and a champion crowned at the end of the season. And just like many other sports, the possibility of player injury is also very real. In fact, with drivers competing in vehicles traveling upwards of 200 miles per hour, motorsports…

    choice. The fences are not high enough to prevent lobbing something over, much like young Army recruits are taught to lob grenades, but they are mostly high enough from allowing you, the bomb thrower, anything like accuracy, even from a seat way up high. If you can hit a moving target from row 120, then you should be in the Major Leagues, as far as I'm concerned. Forget Nascar, you've got an arm! For God's sake, use it! I know that a lot of fans in red inhabit the stands at Nascar races today.…

    Fanatical About “Gordon” As a teenager I would think that watching a NASCAR race was about the most boring way to spend four hours or more every weekend; although every weekend my step-father would persistently watch cars race around in a circle. My opinion began to change in 1993 after a get-together with co-workers. They would get-together between the work weeks and grill out, drink beer and watch the race. In “93” I became a part of this ritual although I still didn’t care very much about…
