IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE NASCAR IS TOTALLY EASY TO DO!!!!!
i'd like to see that motherfucker try it for real.
I'd say rally racing (or any other kind of car racing) has a few more variables for the driver to consider.
I would argue that certain aspects of NASCAR, like restrictor plate racing, are as complex as anything found on a road course, mainly due to the fact that you've got 15-20 cars inches apart all doing 180mph. Based entirely on my own limited viewing experience, passing and drafting plays a bigger part in nascar than in some other motorsports.

The're actually ovals.

Way to take an obvious, predictable joke and string it out for three minutes, knowing that people's contempt for Nascar will override the lack of actual humor.

The onion is even worse in video than they are in print. At least in print you can skim for the one or two slight chuckles.

Why do people keep giving these idiots money?

It's soft sell humor, boys. Expand your horizons.

Compared to rally, this is almost realistic.

The Onion doesn't seem to realize that there are people who actually do that. They're called spotters. Real spotter-driver chat is funnier than this, and it's usually not that funny unless they're working blue.

So...the Onion takes the same joke everybody in the world comes up with when they first hear about auto racing and stretch it to three minutes.
You should have known the Onion was going downhill when CNN.com started linking to them.
+1 because I hate NASCAR.

When I saw this I thought the joke was more about how most people (especially Nascar fans) don't have the faintest idea about the techniques involved in driving at the limit of a car's potential. Generally because Nascar fans are not really motorsport fans.
You thought wrong! It's basically GO FAST TURN LEFT DON'T CRASH which is such an obvious joke that nascar fans themselves make it.
I always wondered myself why NASCAR fans generally don't take much of an interest in F-1, etc. Maybe because DAMN FURRINERS, I guess.
I think it's less DAMN FURRINER and more LOCAL BOYS DONE REAL GOOD, personally. Up until the last five-ten years, NASCAR drivers were notably close to the fans.

Anyone who enjoys Nascar is already dead. They're still taking up precious resources somehow.

Anyone who still likes The Onion needs to rent "The Aristocrats" and watch their segment. The "writers" are the most outrageously stereotypical pasty-white left-wing pretentious urbanite snobby assholes you could possibly imagine.
Seriously, those motherfuckers needs to meet Mr. Sun.
And that's why we love 'em.
Their pasty bodies make a striking contrast with yours, you bronze rippling Adonis. Meet any cripples on the internet lately, stud?
That makes me want to watch The Aristocrats just to see if they're as bad as I've always imagined.

Fuck The Onion for killing Herbert Kornfeld. FUCK YOU ONION, NOT FUNNY ANYMORE.

Those stupid rocket scientists, all they need to do is set off a big explosion to launch the shuttle. Toothless NASA hillbillies.

Talladega Nights was better than this. That is not saying much.

The only funny thing on the Onion is the personal ads.
|plank - 2007-08-01 |
I think the humor was lost on a lot of people. The Onion lampoons everything, they're not actually calling out NASCAR as a bunch of hillbilly left-turners.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2007-08-07 |
Well, I guess we can see the who NASCAR fans are around here. Isn't rating this taking time away from ordering plates with dead drivers on them?
Ha, ha, ha.

+1 for the headset commentary. Otherwise, totally obvious.
