I underlined something for you. You was right about it being the 2nd most viewed sport. It just isn't the most popular overall and press definitely shows that. I think a lot of it is because sports like NBA and MLB has 80 and 100+ games a year and people have to pay extra to watch their favorite teams play. However NASCAR you can watch all your favorite driver in every race going against everybody else. I don't think NBA and MLB really pickup a lot of views until playoffs because of weird schedules.
Haha i was going to say I looked it up once just to see and even though I am a diehard NASCAR fan I was suprised to see it was that popular. Also I think the reason it doesn't get al lot of press on sports channels and websites is the fact most of them don't consider it a sport (which is %100 false but thats another argument). As a diehard fan I never go to ESPN for NASCAR updates I just watch SPEED channel or go to NASCAR.com.
That is true, never thought about the SPEED channel. Well I guees I learned something today then haha Definitely shocked it is the 2nd most viewed sport in America lol
