in the case of the carolina hurricanes, their main competition is college sports. they have the university of north carolina, duke university and nc state in their market. basketball is a huge draw with a threeway super intense rivalry. nc state plays its home games in the same arena as the canes.

the nhl is the only professional league in the market.

nascar is not really regional. they race in every population center in the united states. the difference is that they a maximum of two events in a given market in a year. they are not competition for a team sport.
