NASCAR Beef

So I got some beef with the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. It is the biggest waste of our natural resources and a huge pollutant to our environment. Have you ever wondered how much gas they use in Nascar? I don't know the actual number but it's probably a ridiculously absurd amount. I'm sure they are using a high octane gas too and not the cheap stuff. Also they go through like hundreds of tires during each race and tires are made up of oil.

Now aren't we as a country trying to help our environment by making and driving economic and hybrid vehicles? How the hell is Nascar helping with our oil problems? We don't have enough oil to last us in our lifetime but we can waste it on driving in a circle for 500 miles!?!

I don't even get Nascar anyway. How is it fun to watch cars make left turns for like 3 hours? Most people watch it hoping for a crash anyway. I have watched some Nascar in my lifetime and I was not entertained. I will give credit to the drivers though, it probably takes a lot of skill driving inches away from 20 other cars going 200 mph. Maybe I need to be a redneck or have my own ambulance in order to understand and enjoy it.

Of course the government isn't going to get break up Nascar because they make way too much money off of it. Just like fucking cigarettes but that's another post in of itself.

PS -- My kids also despise Nascar, and whenever they see it, the chorus of "Oh My God, Another Left Turn!!" will start up, sometimes even in stereo. LOL Gotta love those little ankle biters!! ;)
