Some people say that sports require a natural skill and that anyone can learn how to drive. Well its not just anyone who can drive 200mph for 4 hours with no breaks ever while driving 3 inches away from 43 other cars and trying to get to the finish line before the rest of them.

I reference the Dictionary.com definition of SPORT above. If you base your opinion solely on this definition then NASCAR is a sport. NASCAR Racing is governed by a set of rules, a set that seems to grow with each race. There is no question NASCAR Racing is very competitive, it requires a certain amount of physical exertion and skill. When you see a driver in need of assistance to simply climb out of his car after a 4hr 500 mile race in the heat of Martinsville, Va. that will leave no doubt in your mind that those drivers have physically exerted themselves over the course of that race.
