10. No need for costumed mascots to entertain race fans.

7. In NASCAR, you can root for the short guy.

6. No worry about owner lockouts in NASCAR.

5. Crossover pass more fun to watch than bounce pass.

NASCAR, V8 Supercars, Indy Racing League And Champ Cars are the TOP 4 Sports I would say
NBA Personally would be one of my lest Favourite Sports!

Ok, in #8, you cant’t compare the number of people in a basketball court and a race track, the basketball court is much smaller, THERE’S A LIMITED CAPACITY. Overall you can’t compare them, they’re 2 different types of sports.
P.S. Any motorsport is better than NASCAR. It takes no skill to go around in circles hundreds of times.
