But - when you're channel-surfing, what sort of racing recaps would you just stop for until it was over? ...

    NASCAR, NHRA, MotoGP, F1 or other?

    I'm probably treading dangerous waters here...

    But - when you're channel-surfing, what sort of racing
    recaps would you just stop for until it was over?

    Being an old-timer from the West Coast myself, I just
    can't resist Top Fuel and Funny Car eliminations.

    I used to be a very faithful F1 follower, but FIA became a whore for media and in the late 90's became so anti Ferrari that I stopped watching F1 after Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell retired.

    I watch NASCAR.

    I was a professional drag racer in the 60s-70s but it is boring on TV.

    IMO, MotoGP leads the pack in excitement and watch ablilty. NASCAR annoys me, but I enjoy watching a F1 race once in awhile.

    I can't get into racing on tv.

    If I did watch it..would have to be
    semi-truck racing.

    I like IDBA Top-Fuel Funny Bikes and Pro-Stock. A local guy was at the top of the charts for may years a while back. His shop still does top notch work.

    Fast By Gast - High Performance Motorcycle Parts

    Paul Gast is from my area and years ago built my drag bike, a Kawasaki H2 750cc triple cylinder 2-stroker. That bike was insanely fast. Without a doubt it would beat ANY, I said ANY, current production superbike in the 1/8th mile and probably the 1/4 mile too. Ahh, those were the days...

    I guess I'm that "there's one in every crowd" guy. I've never gotten into racing. I just surf on through the racing stuff.

    Nascar definitely. But, if it's in HD I'll stop on any of it.

    Same here. Watching people drive in a straight line, or even adding the excitement of circles just never appealed to me. Now, if I was in the racecar, that would be awesome.

    Anything that turns left and right and a pit stop requires strategy.
    Anything that goes in a straight line or turns left only is boring. Horse racing excluded

    Exactly the same here...

    But since I ride this, it is almost to be expected...
