I don't Like NASCAR

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, 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!
