You heard me. What's so great about it? People race in a circle for about 300 or what ever laps. How the hell is that entertainment? There's no point to it. Only reason I think people actually watch it is to try and sober up. Least with other sports you pass a ball or something.

it's okay if you don't like it, but you can hardly call it pointless

it has a very defined point

Whats the point of men in pads tackle each other?
Whats the point of throwing a ball through a hoop?
Whats the point of hitting a ball with a stick?
Whats the point of any sport?

Entertainment.

That's the point.

It's no more pointless than any other sport, I think your complaint is aimed toward the dynamic of the sport more so than it is toward the objective of the game.

In any motor racing, there is always the possibility of bloody and flaming crashes.

NASCAR is PURELY for advertisement in case you haven't noticed. Its not so much as of winning as it is marketing, and with 200-300 plus laps in addition to air time; those logos will be burned into viewers brains easily

All of the high end racing classes are like that.

NASCAR has a lot more history and tradition than most people understand, but most of that has been washed away in the corporate sponsorship. It's a shame, really.

Yes.

As others have mentioned, all sports are pointless. They are competitions between the players of said game, to provide the masses some entertainment.

Personally, I'd rather watch Indy, F1, or something along the lines of the Rolex Cup. Either way, Nascar does have SPECTACULAR wrecks, sometimes people die. Just the chance of this happening should be enough reason to support tuning in.

NASCAR is just something to entertain and make money off of rednecks. It's there so they don't have to subject their feeble minds to any real sports, that require some thinking which rednecks hate. And fuck NASCAR, we're paying $4 for a gallon of gas, and they're making millions wasting it. It's not even a sport, and anyone who thinks it's a sport is retarded. And in sports, the athletes have real talent as opposed to just being good at driving a car in a circle all day.

Let me tell you a little secret. Don't tell NASCAR about this, because they'd be pissed. Get a lawn chair and set it up beside the freeway. Woo! Free NASCAR!

They go 200mph on freeways where you live? Sweet.

Anyway, this is just an opinion war, so meh. Some people like it, some don't. Go figure.

Well, pretty much all sports are pointless, y'know? It's just something fun to watch and to do. And before you say it's not fun watching cars drive around, I agree with you. But it's fun driving them :p

Definitely. Ah, I think I can think of some more:

The point of basketball is to throw the ball into a net.
The point of hockey is to slap a puck into a net.
The point of cycling is to pass the finish line first.
The point of submission wrestling is to get your opponent to tap.
The point of high jump is to jump over a pole.
The point of volleyball is to volley a ball over a net.
The point of tennis is to swat a ball over a net.
The point of sport stacking is to stack cups as fast as you can.
The point of swimming is to swim around in water (Unless you're racing, which is "Try to pass the finish line first.")
The point of shot put is to push a ball as far as you can.
The point of standing long jump is to stand and jump as far as you can.
The point of running long jump is to run and jump as far as you can.
The point of figure skating is to skate around and do tricks.
The point of car racing is to drive a car past the finish line first.
The point of professional skateboarding is to jump on a board with wheels and do some stunts.

Ah, pretty pointless, eh?

Yes because throwing balls around is a completely worthwhile activity.

Because people are stupid. I guess that "South Park" episode was right, in saying that Nascar is only watched by dumb (and poor) people. I mean, it could be worse. It could be something like boxing, where two people are actively trying to hurt each other. Granted, I don't know much about how dangerous each of the sports are, but I have heard boxing isn't really that bad.

The point of posting threads is for people to read them.
The point of posting threads is to make your point on a pointless topic.
The point of posting threads is for entertainment.
The point of posting threads is to be edgy, avert the moderators, push the boundaries.
The point of posting threads is to TROLOLOLOLOLO!
The point of posting threads is to... you know what fuck you that's why.

People like watching stock car racing for crashes plain and simple.
