My hometown, Batesville, Arkansas, is the hometown of NASCAR hero Mark Martin. McDonald's there has Mark Martins stuff in it, the Ford dealership is owned by Martin, he has a museum at the dealership, and the big sign going into Batesville proudly announces "Home of NASCAR's Mark Martin". That's great, but I still don't like NASCAR.
I have to be honest, I've tried to watch it. I have turned it on after hearing about the crashes. Watched when women started becoming popular thanks to NASCAR and Godaddy.com, but I still just can not for the life of me figure out a way to enjoy it. I mean, let's face it folks, in truth I can get the same effect by pouring a bag of M & M's into the toilet and flushing it. Don't believe me? Give it a try sometime. Just pop that little back open, push that handle down and watch them swirl away. I mean, if that isn't the essence of NASCAR, then I don't know what it is then!
