Every form of motorsport is an aquired taste, some you might like, some you might not. That being said, NASCAR XXXX Cup racing is personality and sponsorship driven and for the most part racing is secondary. What was once a mostly regional sport with a long and interesting history has been homogenized and simplified so everyone can understand it to the point of being boring.

If I knew how to do it, I could show you some old racing footage that would have you standing up and yelling at your TV within just a few laps. It used to be that good the majority of the time. Now almost all that matters is selling something and looking good.

Speaking of YouTube, I found these...

I'm not a big fan of NASCAR either. I prefer watching Rally and Drag racing more. I get sick to my stomach watching the drivers go around in circles.

i go to a few nascar races, mainly bristol, but like alot of ya;ns said, its all commercialized. i dont buy anything, i do go watch the race, but the biggest part of the trip i enjoy is hanging with friends whom i dont get to see much anymore, go camping for the weekend, grill out, play cornhole, and drink some beer. its like a little mini vacation. i have a good time.

I've never really been into it either but a few of my guy friends are challenging me to get into it. I'm finding the rivalries really fun to follow. This crash isn't nearly as good as the largest in Nascar history but the rivalry between Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart makes for some drama on the track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzzu1OBFXYw

With only 6 races to go I'm hoping Busch and the Dodge team stay in the front! What do you guys think is going to happen in the final races??
