This is a discussion on NASCAR, NHRA, MotoGP, F1 or other? within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; 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.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
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.... that would be cool.

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.
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
Government is out of control
"If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying -- " Sen Orrin G. Hatch
