Apparently, it's not driving at speeds in excess of 190-200mph with 33 degree banking along with 42 other drivers trying not to get yourself or anyone else killed.

They must drive like that all the time. That's why it's not a sport to them.

In terms of athleticism, NASCAR is more of a sport than fishing.

I disagree with bowling and golf. It takes a tremendous ammount of athletism, and a great combination of balance, and gross, and fine motor skills to compete in bowling and golf.

Not for nothing but my uncle Freddie was a 300lbs alcoholic who smoked 3packs a day and had a 220 average at one point.
