Uh, 2nd most viewed sport in the USA. The biggest NASCAR race- I'm assuming this is Daytona- doesn't touch the world's audience for, say, the GP of Monaco.
After I went to the race at the Pocono circuit, I left thinking the exact opposite of what you've said. That race proved to me that NASCAR is not about racing anymore. It's about spectacle, entertainment instead of racing
, mayhem, and sponsors. Just my opinion
