NASCAR

“NASCAR fans wear obscene amounts of fan gear turning a one-day sporting event into a week-long celebration and are as varied and colorful as the cars they follow on the racetrack every Sunday” writes Raygan Swan. NASCAR is one of the most viewed professional sports in terms of television ratings in the United States and sanctions over 1,500 races at over 100 tracks in 39 states, Canada, and Mexico. It is here at the tracks where NASCAR fans come alive, gathering to barbeque, camp, party and partake in some friendly rivalry heckling. And it is the smell of rubber, the speed of the cars and the good times to be had that keeps them coming back for more.
