Over the past 5 years I have become a NASCAR DieHard. You could definitley compare it to wrestling as far as fan favorites are concerned. For Example, Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Spencer, Tony Stewart, and Kevin Harvick would be the heels while Dale Earnhart Jr., Mike Waltrip, and Rusty Wallace would be the face. If it is booked like some people say than man you need to give NASCAR som credit, like the cool wrecks at Daytona. My point is that NASCAR is America's fastest growing sport that has plenty of entertainment. If you get a chance some day check it out.

If you get a chance check out last week's SI they have a really cool article on NASCAR.

That is all I wanted to say.

Okay, I will ask you a question, and please don't get mad because I am not trying to be sarcastic, I am genuinely curious as to what exactly other people are seeing. The question being:

How is it not boring?

There's 2 types of NASCAR fans. There's people who want to see crashes. I just don't understand that, because they really don't often happen often enough to bother with. The second and largest group of fans are those who see the strategy in it pertaining to when to make pit stops or try to make a pass. I think the biggest problem most people have with it is they don't have the patience to sit through it to see this long slow strategy develop.

I wish more people would give it a chance before deciding it's just "a bunch of guys making left turns for three hours."

When I was a younger lad I gave up the chance to get good free tickets to NASCAR so I could stay home and watch Earthworm Jim. Now I don't watch it, but I respect NASCAR and the fans more, I used to wait tables at a sports bar and we had some guys who would always come in for the big races that would sit in my section and they would explain a lot of strategy and why whoever was going to win/lose based on their car and the like to me. It seems pretty cool.

You know why NASCAR has heels and faces? Because its booked! And Dick Trickle is being held down by the Rousch/Hendricks/Penske glass ceiling.

No one named Dick Trickle can be a bad driver. Its poltics I say! Well that and he is 765 years old. But Dick Trickle is easily the greatest name is sports history.

Dick Trickle,

Well most of the time he does not even qualify, and when he does qualify he crashes. I would not want to be that man's owner/sponser. Would you?

I guess Trickle needs fans like you because he does basically suck. My suggestion is to write to or send e-mail to NASCAR stating that YOU are a Dick Trickle fan and Dick Trickle is the man. They will appreciate it.

Here is a question for you NASCAR fans. I know from my casual viewing Mark Martin is one of the best drivers on the circuit, so why in the world does he drive the Viagra car? Couldn't a guy like Mr. Martin get a much MUCH better sponsor than Viagra? It seems like he should be driving a soft drink/beer/cigarette/car product car. Not a pill to make old men excited.

And how many NASCAR fans are going to admit they siffer from erectile disfuntion anyway? I can't see many guys named Earl taking their Hank Williams belt buckle and heading over to the Viagra truck for some free samples. Personally it seems like a waste of the Viagra's people money.

Anyway, I am all glad Mark is drawing attention to the facts about the horrible affliction of erectile disfunction, but I don't need a car covered in Erectile decals going around a track for three hours to get it. I think Bob Dole made the point years ago (in a very disturbing way).

And stop knocking Dick Trickle. Does he suck? Yes. But for crying out looud the man survived high school being named Dick Trickle! Thats reason enough to be a fan.

#1 $$$$$$$$ At that time Martin signed Viagra for his sponser because it was the richest deal in NASCAR history. Not sure on the numbers but it not hard to find, (How many Mark Martin Viagra ADS on TV have you seen.) Enough Said.

#2 Why would you be offended by this? Do you have problems? I bet you don't even know who makes Viagra. Odds are you are knocking yourself right now because you have probably have taken what they have supplied for the health field before. Figure out the name yourself.

#3 Bob Dole is a spokesperson for Viagra.

His real name is Pugh. Pugh Trickle or Dick Trickle, either way, that's tough. I honestly only watched NASCAR because of him. He never does anything anymore, so I don't bother. The fact that he sucked made it even beterr. Ya see, when you're driver is 35th and moves up to 30th, that's big news, and it could happen at any time. Any time he passed someone that was big moment.

I guess I should also point out that dude has won TONS of races. Over 1,000. They just weren't NASCAR races.

Cajun Man- I know its all about money, the question is what do the Viagra people gain from the Viagra car?

#2 No I am not offended by Viagra. If I was I would have said "I am offended by Viagra."

#3 In know Bob Dole was spokeperson for Viagra which was my point. The Viagra people got the message out with Bob Dole why do they need a NASCAR.

There was a U.S. Representative from New Hampshire (I think) named Dick Sweat. And thisman LOST a race for senate. I will personally kick the ass of any New Hampshirite that did notvote for him.

Iīve never understood why those guys with funny 'Dick' names just donīt go by Rich or Richard or Rick.

The makers of Viagara get a "free" advertisement for their product every time that car is shown on TV - whether it is during the race, on SportsCenter or on the countless local newscasts. It's always about the $$$$$'s.

I started paying attention to NASCAR a few years ago when I found out that one of largest clients was a big NASCAR fanatic and the good looking chick who cuts my hair is also a big fan so keeping an eye on what is going on helps me on a couple of fronts.

It just doesn't seem like NASCAR fans would be the demographic Viagra is shooting for. I mean lets be brutally honest, the mass hardcore NASCAR fans are white redneck families. I have been to a few races (Bristol, Daytona, and Pocono) so you cannot dispute this fact. There are plenty of normal people at races, but the vast majority fly their Confederate Flag and scream for Dale even though he is dead while jamming to their country music.

If I am a Viagra marketer I am thinking, no, this is not worth spending millions on. The majority of NASCAR fans are not going to be in to the product. I am thinking one thing, SENIOR PGA TOUR BABY! Honestly is money not more well spent on the demographic that most uses your product? I would think so.

That was my point. Alas I now end this senseless rambling and drivelry, I will go do something contructive....

Just part of NASCAR's growth, really. A bunch of other sponsors don't really fit the stereotype you're talking about either, Dupont and UPS coming to mind right away. They're marketing to the newer NASCAR fan.

Personally, I can't ever see making a buying decision based on what brand is on the hood of a car anyway.
