Get over whatever negative perception you have about the sport - give it at least one shot. And if you've never been to a race (I'm guessing very few of my readers have), trust me when I tell you it is one of the most remarkable experiences you can imagine.
While NASCAR may be 60 years old, its attitude is that of a young gun. Drama, danger, speed – it all adds up to America’s biggest spectator sport. It is NOT a bunch of good ole’ boys driving in circles. Races are won on pit strategies, car "set-ups," alliances, and nerves of steel. The story arc that unfolds over the course of a four-hour race is riveting.
So on Sunday afternoon, put down your latte, keep the luxury SUV in the heated garage and skip yoga class. Buckle up ... it's a wild ride.
