Indy this year is producing very good racing. Hope it regains fans in the long run because they have a good product. NASCAR is like WWE on wheels, I guess it's good if you are into that.

I have to admit I have not seen any Indycar races this year, but it is in large part due to the deterioration of the quality of it in recent times. So my vote would be Nascar is more exciting, although their constant tinkering with championship rules is irritating me too.

NASCAR is real, so no, it's not like WWE.

Both series have their redeeming qualities. I'll watch NASCAR for the short-track races and the Daytona 500.

My interest in IndyCar has picked up since they switched over to the DW12 chassis. Last year's Indy 500 was phenomenal. Prior to the new chassis, IndyCar was way too predictable because the old IR-05 was played out.

Supposing, without conceding, that's true, then it's like MMA on wheels. Which once again is fine if you are into it.

Neither, really. I'll watch NASCAR at Talledega or Daytona and the road courses. Stock cars on those D shaped ovals are as exciting as watching paint dry. Michigan or Fontana? Please, just shoot me. I'll watch an IndyCar race when I've got nothing else to do just for it's comedic value. No matter what track they run at the old IRL incompetence breaks out. Imagine watching an IndyCar race with the Benny Hill theme song going on and you get my drift.

I preferred the American LeMans series but now the France family is wrecking that series just like they did the AMA.

F1 has always been my favourite Bernie and his cabal are trying real hard to wreck that. Switching away from traditional tracks to glorified go-kart tracks designed by Herman Tilke, racing in countries where no one cares about racing. Just because some government writes Bernie a big check or some rich sheik wants an F1 race in his sandbox.

With Mosport only a 25 minute drive from here if there is a race on, whether it's pro or amateur, I'm there. if not I'll find some race on the web to stream.

I'm not seeing what you mean. I think you should explain.
