I figured it was because ESPN doesn't broadcast NHL games anymore, therefore don't make money off of it like they do with NFL and NBA games.

I have NHL Network and Russo for hockey coverage. ESPN serves its purpose for the other things, although NFL Network >>>> ESPN for football now.

NASCAR is popular because it's a form of motorsport that's easy to follow and it's closer to the common folk than IRL or Formula 1. Sure, you'd think that turning left for 3 hours is easy, but newsflash: It's not. Go ahead, give it a shot. I'm sure you can find a copy of Nascar Racing 2003 Season by Papyrus somewhere, or try it in iRacing. Then come back and tell me it's easy.

Sure, folks love it because of the crashes, but they also love their favorite drivers. And tell me that 42 cars racing 200mph 3-wide for a big sum of money and glory is not interesting.

I, for one, follow NASCAR occasionally. I'm not a devoted follower or a big fan, but I usually watch the superspeedway races and the road courses. Still, the most difficult ones are probably the standard 1-mile ovals. And Darlington. Ohh boy.

But yeah, let's get back on topic, shall we?

I'm a fan of NASCAR and watch as many races as I possibly can and I agree with difficulty of the sport. I was just talking on a popularity with fans perspective.

Can't wait for the 19th baby!!

Keyword: Smooth. Add 40 other cars in the mix, the turbulent air, cold tyres and bump drafting and it's not easy.

Fastest car I ever drove was a Porsche Cayman S. Sucked so bad to drive on city streets. Any little imperfection in the road and the whole car shook so bad the noise literally popped my ears.
