I like good combination of both NASCAR and IndyCar. They both have good qualities though NASCAR is more exciting in my opinion, especially the Daytona 500 and at Talledega.

NASCAR. I used to be a huge fan of Indy Car but since they have all but eliminated oval races from their schedule in favor of more races on city streets or parking lots, I have lost interest. The only Indy Car race that I still watch is the Indy 500. The current version of Indy Car is just a minor league version of F1. If they ever add more oval races and get some additional American drivers, I might be persuaded to give them another chance.

It's true, Indycar has become a Junior F-1 using spec cars, BUT the racing is great. Still, I am not going to watch cars that are all basically alike, and I had the opportunity just a few days ago to watch them live here in St Pete. They sure sounded good though, as you could hear them all over downtown. Maybe I'll watch the Indy 500 and that's it.

Is there any racing in NASCAR anymore? It looks totally rigged to me, w/ all those phantom debris yellow flags during the last few laps. I mean, come on! It is happening way too often. Besides, after living 4 years in Daytona Beach and seeing how that France family operates, no thank you. Then there's all this Good Guy vs Bad Guy comic book nonsense, which is totally fabricated. Really, if someone wants to see good racing, it's Sportsman or Skeeters, preferably on dirt. The Aussie Super Cars look promising too.

So I guess my answer is none of the above.

Been to both and I prefer Indy. Did Talladega once and could not sit through a whole race in one of those little buckets they call seats. Indy at Barber's is much better and comfortable. My wife and I can pack a nice picnic and enjoy the race in a beautiful setting.

But...that's more or less comparing the venues as opposed to the racing itself. For me, Indy still wins. At least it makes no presumptions about being spec racing. I do not like how NASCAR has become so homogenized.

Neither...

Excitement, as in actual exciting racing, can be found at your local dirt track or SCCA event.

For me definitely NASCAR mainly because I have no interest in the Indy 500. Plus NASCAR seems to have more action and competition than the Indy 500

I went to the Indy 500 this year and watched the Coke 600 from my hotel room.
As a lifelong NASCAR fan I will have to admit that this year the Indy 500 was a more exciting race.

There is no excitement when a driver leads 500 miles of a 600 mile race and I am a Truex fan.

Regarding which is more exciting between the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500, I like both.

I wouldn't call restrictor plate racing 'exciting'.. Gut wrenching.. Nerve-wracking.. Yes.. Exciting.. Not so much.

It's stressful WATCHING it.. Can't imagine what goes through the drivers minds.
