  • Which would you pick?

    Two races. One has a field of 18-25 mostly road racers on a road course. The other has a field of 40 short trackers on a superspeedway. They are in the same city, but not at the same track so you have to pick one to go to.

    Same deal, but you aren't close to either track. They are both televised and start at the same time. You can't watch both, but you can flip channels during commercials, but the one you watch the most is the only one that counts as your answer.
    Some people will do nearly anything in order to be able to not do anything.

        Is this just any ol' short trackers and any ol' road racers, or are we talking about NASCAR and F1?

        I think we already know that NASCAR wins in the U.S. and F1 wins in the rest of the world.

        But, maybe you have a twist

          Not allowed. You have to pick one.

            I wasn't asking what you thought everyone else would watch, but which one would you watch. And I wasn't thinking nascar or F1. What I had in mind was top short trackers and top road racers, but neither Cup or F1.

              Is either one running fenders?

                Hadn't thought of fenders. I guess when I wasn't thinking nascar I also wasn't thinking fenders.

                  Well, I guess if it's really good drivers in Indy Cars, I'd take the speedway version both on TV and in person, almost every time. If it was something else (less), then I'd consider the road racers, especially live, and especially if it was Formula 1.

                  If it was really run-of-the-mill short trackers in shoestring equipment repeatedly taking themselves and each other out with mistakes and multiple mechanical failures, then I'd probably rather watch the road racers on TV even if I had to set the alarm clock for the middle of the night

                  If it was a bunch of clubracer drivers in specracer cars repeatedly taking themselves and each other out with mistakes and multiple mechanical failures, then I'd probably rather watch the short trackers, even live in the middle of the night with a hundred miles to drive home afterwards.

                  'zat make sense, Luck?

                      Same here. That's what the previous channel button is for on the remote.

                        I didn't realize this would be so difficult. You can watch both, but you can only mostly watch one or the other. If you want to play, then you have to choose one. Both is not an option. If you don't want to choose one over the other, then I guess that's your right, but by doing so you are also choosing to not answer the question.

                          Yes. Three paragraphs to say that you are undecided.

                            I would suggest that the American marketplace has already answered this question, thousands of times over.

                              No, what I'm saying is it depends on factors that are more important to me than if it's an oval or if there are road racers. I did take time to discuss my personal preference, because that's what I thought you were asking.

                              If you just wanted data or a poll for your own analysis and use, I apologize. I thought it was a dialog.
