Was just wondering if anyone else has been watching the NASCAR series on Sky sports since they started showing it live last year.

I'm hooked on it, used to be really into F1 and touring cars but i reckon NASCAR is way better. Anyone else of the same opinion?

Sorry but no,watching cars go around an oval for hours on end is not my idea of entertainment.But if you like it fair play.

Nascar its brill, esp when they start drafting. Its unreal how many places they can lose if they hit the wrong air.

Its shelby 427 at las vegas tomorrow night 9.30 on sky 3. :smthumbup

I would love to go and watch it. Bet the sound is unreal, my wife went about 6years ago at rockingham, she said it was so loud you could not stand or sit in the front row of seats.

I thought the same at the start, but it's so much more than just going round in circles. There's tons of overtaking, tons of big crashes and the racing is so close. 43 cars all very similar spec on track at one time. You can qualify last and still win the race it's unbelievable.

I would recommend it to all race fans:smthumbup:smthumbup

What did you think to daytona? i think it was dale earnhardt jr who took nearly all the field out when he side swiped that other guy. Kin dangerous that was. lucky nobody was killed. Thought he would have bin black flagged.

Kyle busch was a bit sick, he would have won i reckon.

I think Vickers started it by pushing Earnhardt down to the grass but he should'nt have hit Vickers on the way back up the track, he took out quite a few guys that could have had a chance of winning. It's a shame the rain spoilt the end.

Yeh i agree.

I love the 'GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINES' thats kin good.

A friend of mine went over to daytona, and for $50 you got 3 laps round at full speed. It would be amazing.

Suppose closest thing to a nascar for the road is a mustang roush.

We went to watch it at Daytona when we went to Florida about 4/5 years ago, it was my mate who wanted to go see it, I can't stand watching it on TV but when your actually there watching it live its pretty cool tbh.
