Have any of you ever been to a NASCAR race? I’ve been to one and I have to say that the night before the race is pretty badass. The infield is one funny ass thing to see. Tons of partying and tons of awesome rednecks. But the actual race? You get all adrenaline rushed for maybe the first five minutes and then you realize it’s cars driving around a track for over 3 hours.
Kind of boring. However, if you get to witness a crash it’s pretty exciting. But that kind of begs the question of why people attend these things. Do they want to see a crash? Are we that thirsty for violence?
Luckily in many of the crashes drivers turn out to be OK but wow, it’s pretty scary to look at.
