Default Anybody been whatching nascar?

I've been whatching a few races here and there, and I started to notice I haven't seen 1 race where there wasn't empty seats everywhere. I heard there has not been a sold out race this year! Now, I'm more of an avid college and NFL football fan. But I usually go to a summer race and had to pay a lot for most tickets when I've gone. Now seats that you usually have to reserve years in advance are empty. Just goes to show you how bad the economy really is.

It's because of the ticket prices mainly...my dad and I usually went to Atlanta for both races every year, but can't afford the tickets now as the cheapest are like 105 and those are shitty seats

Last race I went to was Darlington 3 years ago. I work for a Caterpillar dealer and business hasn't been good in 3 years. Can't afford fuel, tickets and whatever else. I used to go to a race every year....

Yeah, my parents and I went to darlington for the first three years of the Mother's Day race....The best deal in the series right now, though, is Talladega. Will be ordering tickets for my dad and I as they have a two day package deal on the Allison grandstand for $45 dollars that is tickets for both days...

People are broke, times are tough.
Sad to see it, but Nascar (and I mean no disrespect to anyone) is a fleeting "sport" in the public eye. People would rather take what little money they have now a days and pay their mortgage than go to a race.

I completely agree with Laz....it gets old watching a two man show...and it also gets old listening to alot of shit about Dale Jr. when he finally won another race, be it Busch or Cup Series...they are having to play this one up alot b/c it will be forever before he gets another one

If the night race @ Bristol isn't sold out, than the 'sport' is dead.

its already dead, b/c you can still get tickets right now...to have tickets for that race you had to be on the longest waiting list in the history of man or you had to already have reserve tickets. They seriously effed theirselves when they re-did the track to try and make the racing better. Everybody loved the wrecks and the tempers that don't happen so much now
