Same way with the Indy racing league. They all have more or less the same machines, it's not like they used to be either.

I'm an old fart (72) so I can relate to the old time racers.
Exactly. So much of it was taken away, little by little once they started to make all of the cars identical. The only thing telling what the car is now is the paint/decal job.

I still watch some just because of watching Matt Kenseth race here every weekend while he was growing up. The track is about 15 minutes away. It was cool. The short track, friday night races are still more fun than Nascar IMO.

I tend to watch more of the IRL( or IZOD Indy series, or whatever ya wanna call it) now, but mostly because of one person. Danica used to race go karts in the town i lived in when I was a kid, which is only about 10 mins away from where I am now.
But yeah, all the cars are the same there just isn't fun anymore.

My parents used to watch Nascar quite a bit, but my mom stopped after Earnhardt died. My dad watches it now, but for him, it's more of a way to pass the time, he doesn't enjoy it much more. They both used to be avid collectors of merchandise like the 1/24, 1/64 scale cars, I forgot exaclty how they classified them... they stopped collecting things after Earnhardt died.
Personally, I never got into it, because I always thought it was a bunch of cars running around in circles, albeit at ~150-180 miles per hour... but that's basically what it is nowadays.

I know there are a few NASCAR fans out there. == I was disappointed with the Gen 6 cars. They didn't seem to have the power or draft to pass a lot. The COT was too much two-car drafting. The ones before the COT, I guess you call them the Gen 4 cars seemed to do a lot of drafting and passing on...
