2. TV coverage
3. variety of tracks
4. history
5. old timers stories
6. competition
7. safety improvements (compared to other forms of racing)
8. exposure to personalities
9. fan access
10. passion (yes, my passion, but the passion of others as well)

also not in any particular order....

1) the sensuality of the sport...the feel of the wind as the cars blow past you, the smell of smoke and oil and campfires, the roar of the engines (and even the track dryers!)
2)the accessibility the fans have to the sport (tv, computer, scanner)
3) the comeraderie (sp) at the track...nowhere else can i leave a tent or camper (or my seat, for that matter) full of stuff and feel confident it will be there when i get back
4)beer! and lots of it!
5)OK, i'll say it....all the handsome drivers/crewmen
6)the skills of the drivers/crewmen, i appreciate those who can do what i can only dream of
7)beer! and lots of it!
8)the chance to spend time with my family away from reality
9)beer! and lots of it!
10)the respect that most drivers/personalities have for the history of the sport

Here's 9 things in no particular order -
The sound of the cars being 'tuned' in the garage
The venues
The history
Driver's
It's something a whole family can enjoy
The rush you get when the green flag drops
The smells
For a weekend, at the track, you have friends from Alaska to Florida. (some even become true friends)
The emotion shown by drivers and their teams during a race

Here's my #1 -
There's more to NASCAR than just making left turns...There's heart. So much has been done to help raise awareness and funding for so many great charities, from Autism Speaks to the Victory Junction Gang Camp.
That right there makes me proud to be apart of the NASCAR Nation. :)
