    How many race fans do we have here?

    I like all forms of racing. My favorites include motorcycle hill climbs, top fuel drags, tractor pulls, F1, Supercross, and some NASCAR. Generally speaking, if it's got a checkered flag, chances are I'll watch.

    If I had money to burn, I'd probably get into cart racing. Looks like a ton of fun and a relatively cheap form of racing.

    Hendricks fan here. I am not as much of a fan as I used to be just because I don't like where NASCAR is going with the rules. I would be a lot happier if they were required to go back to stock sheetmetal and engines available in production cars.

    As far as I am concerned Nascar is becoming IROC. I like the mechanics of racing. Guys figuring out how to tweak things to go fast. Bordering on cheating.

    I might listen to it on the radio, but I am a F1 fan at heart: 20 days, 15 hours, 39 minutes, 45 seconds till the first race of the season.

    In High School I was a pretty big Hendricks Motorsports fan. Also always thought Rally Racing was cool. WRC was so much fun to watch. Unlimited Hydroplanes also. Like it was said above, anything with a checkered flag.... Anyone else remember Swap Buggy racing on TNN?

    There was a time before all the changes came to Nascar that if I could've, I would've sopped it up like gravy with biscuits.

    I like the technical stuff, but the amount of money needed to compete and the ever changing rules and regulations have made me tune out.

    There's a NHRA track not very far from me that was once extremely popular.

    Honestly, I'm just not a Danica Patrick fan and never will be. It's not because she's a woman. I realize she may have had a harder uphill battle to get where she's at and won't discount that. That took hard work and determination no doubt and can't be summed up in one sentence or paragragh.. Maybe I'm being judgmental, but I don't mean to be. Could be how the media has tried to launch her. Not really sure.

    Used to be heavy into motorcross racing and owned different bikes over the years.

    I'll be watching the 500 today.
    Please don't make me have to listen to Darrell Waltrip's boogity-boogity-boogity lets go racing boys thing.

    One thing I miss are the funny UPS commercials when Dale Jarrett was still in the Sprint Cup races and UPS was one of his sponsors.

    Would love to try this.
    Top gear guys wanted to see if they could have more fun racing for the same price as buying golf equipment.

    I agree 100%. The media has tried to make her a much better driver than she really is IMHO. They even wanted her to become the first female F1 driver, but just like Scott Speed-she does not have what it takes for F1.

    I'll watch some of it.
    Did you guys see the big crash yesterday during the final lap of the Nationwide race? Engine and half the front end of the No. 32 car ended up stuck in the safety fence and a tire and chunk of front suspension ended up in the stands. Hopefully all of the injured fans are okay. One person was in critical condition at one point.
