It seems in both motorsports, a huge selection of fans are just there for the "freak show." By freak show, I mean fuel cars, half track wheelstands, and wrecks in drag racing.....and wrecks, engine/tire failures,etc. in NASCAR. Neither group would know GOOD RACING if it reached out and slapped them in the face. As someone that appreciates good racing (regardless of sanctioning body), it's very frustrating to try and sell someone new on the sport(s), and they've got this blinded agenda that it's all just going in a straight line or in circles for X amount of time. It's no wonder racing in general has a hard time getting new fans or even new participants....lots of figureheads spreading their "wisdom" when quite frankly they don't know what the fuck they're talking about!
