Nascar got popular and priced itself right out of the fanbase's trailer park.

downstairs: Most drivers are from the south


Actually they're not. There are more drivers from California now than any southern state.

Mrtraveler01 Can't forget that they built the racetrack in an area locals call "Fon-tucky"

I prefer "Felony Flats" but you realize it's directly East by 2 odd miles of the old Ontario Motor Speedwayimg.fark.net
nevermind that Drag City's a mile or so Northeast of Auto Club Speedway on Route 66 itself. from '55

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Dumb-Ass-Monkey: But yeah, California has hosted NASCAR events for a long long time.

i just looked it up. California has been hosting various NASCAR events virtually every year since 1951. NASCAR was founded in 1949. So for all but 2 years of the history of NASCAR, California has been a part of the series. Southern roots, right?


California had one of the most vibrant racing scenes in the world from before WWII all the way to the present day. On any given weekend, several series are running everything from drags to road courses, and there are oval races all over the place.

They didn't need NASCAR as much as NASCAR needed them.

Actually, a NASCAR event is still by far the cheapest event to see out of all major sports.  Tickets are like $40... probably less in some places.  (I'm going off my personal experience seeing the Coca Cola 600- a premiere event.  $40 tickets.)

Also, you don't need to buy concessions.  You can bring in your own beer, liquor, and food.  And if that's not enough, you have in-and-out privileges.  So you could literally go back to your car and grill dinner during the boring part of a race.

Can you imagine MLB, NFL, NBA allowing that sorta thing?
