Default Indy Racing: Why isn't it more popular?

Maybe I just have the perception that it isn't popular, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyways, I think it's more entertaining than Nascar, especially the road courses. Those can get even more entertaining if it starts raining

I think it has plenty of starpower, but maybe that's a misconeption because I watch and know who the drivers are.

Dario Franchitti
Helio Castroneves
Danica Patrick
Sam Hornish Jr
Dan Wheldon
Scott Dixon
Tony Kanaan
Scott Sharp
Marco Andretti

Those are some pretty big names, in my opinion.


Do you watch Indy racing? Do you perceive it to be popular? Discuss Indy racing.

Awsome. Another Indy fan. WTG Stick.

I love Indy racing. If it's on, I'll watch it. The Indy 500 weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. I love how the cars just stick to the road, unlike in Nascar where they more or less float. Also the road courses rule. That's REAL racing right there.

BTW, I'm supprised Tony Kanaan's nose doesn't add weight to the car and slow him down.

....and my reply is an answer to that, slappy.


If you need me to use smaller words, or if you need help sounding out the bigger words, just let me know.

Why isn't it popular? Because no one fucking cares. Its fucking driving. We all do it every fucking day, We don't care to watch it on tv. We don't care to go watch other people drive. Its fucking retarded.

I hope those thoughts aren't too complex for ya.

I hate racing whether it be Indy or Nascar. I find it way too boring, and it is one of the few sports that I will not watch.

That might be a valid point if you represented the entire population of the world, or if Nascar wasn't huge. That being said, you don't, and Nascar is huge. There are people that enjoy watching racing. Sorry you aren't the only person alive

So you want every person alive to come and answer this thread? I wouldn't hold out hope. Only about .0000001 percent of the people alive are active posters.

You made a thread. I was under the impression you were looking for opinions. I didn't realize you wanted us all to go out into the world to ask every living person why they don't like indy racing,

I'll get right on that for ya tho

I asked for the opinion of the people that posted here, and you gave me the apparent opinion of the entire world's population. Simply because you drive and don't like to watch other people "drive", doesn't mean that everyone else that drives, don't like to watch other people "drive" as well

Touching on what Stick said, that'd be a good point if Nascar wasn't as big as it is. I mean, some of those tracks come race weekend could be considered one of the largest cites in that state. Bristol Motor Speedway would be the third largest city in Tennessee during race weekend.

You also need to account the fact that Nascar draws several hundred thousand fans per race. I believe it draws the most fans per event of any other major sport in the United States. There are people who care about racing.

No I said "I" not "we" not "the rest of us"

nowhere did I say "I think I speak for the entire world"

You decided to take it that way because I don't like it

Go re-read my post.

I posted my thoughts and opinions on it. I never made any claim to speak for anyone else.

I don't consider Nascar a sport either. Its not just driving, its driving in a circle...wooooo

Their are fans of it....yes I'm aware.

Again, I speak for myself and no one else.

Looks like you're speaking for the entire driving populace to me, but I could be wrong. I don't think I am, but I could be
