    is NASCAR a sport?

    Well... NASCAR does not seem like a sport... Only people 18+ can drive, It requires a lot of history, and young ppl cant play NASCAR!

    I think it technically is...

    usually I go by "anything that is in the Olympics is a sport"... but that leaves alot of grey area too.

    street racing is a sport, stock car racing (nascar) isnt, street racing you have ot dodge other non racers, and take turns that arent made to be taken at high speeds, stock car racing is just driving around a circle taking slight turns.
    When in doubt, empty the magazine, They dont pay you to bring home bullets
