NASCAR: What is this Craze About? As one of the biggest and most popular car racing organizations in the USA, NASCAR has more than just millions of fans around the USA. Though this circuit and organization is prevalent only in the USA, it still sports very flashy and expensive racing cars that makes the heads of their fans spin in glee.
Why NASCAR? Formula One racing is the most popular kind of car races in the rest of the world, but because of the predominantly European taste to it and also because it was once not viably financial to transport the cars to and fro from Europe to the States and back, fans of auto racing in America were hoping for something similar in their own country. This came in the guise of NASCAR.
Features: This is a combination of a group and heroic singular effort all combined into one thrust towards the final line. The engineers in the pit of the car are as important if not sometimes even more important than the driver because it is their responsibility to provide the most appropriate car according to the specific climatic conditions.
NASCAR and Gambling On The Outcome: NASCAR is a very dynamic racing environment. Because of the oval track, races are topsy-turvy and that's what makes it so very interesting. Through some rash driving, a driver can manage to come in from the last place, overtake all the other drivers before him and win the race. This is what makes betting on NASCAR very difficult but not impossible.
What to Look Out For: You have to look out for a number of things that will make the difference between a winner and a loser. What is that? Check out the driver's team.
The mechanics of the different cars work and slog on their respective cars all round the clock in order to prepare them for the beginning race. They fuel the car, check the engine, adjust the capacity of the fuel to fit the particular race track and suit the car with the tires that will match the surface of the track after ensuring that it is in sync with climatic predictions.
The team is such an important element because if the car isn't performing to its fullest because of some tiny twist that the engineers overlooked, its driver could lose even the slightest bit of horsepower that could cause him to lose the race.
Fuel: The amount of fuel loaded into the racing car is also a very important element. Note that if a car is loaded with unnecessary fuel it will move slower, and likewise if it has too little fuel it might stall right before the winning line. This is where the team engineers earn their keep: they calculate the exact amount needed to get their driver to the line. That car which has the highest average of getting as near to this fuel to miles limit will invariably be the winner because this means that his car is that much lighter than all the rest.
Conclusion: Due to the enormous amount of human and mechanic variables that determine the outcome of the different races, NASCAR is only growing in popularity. Everyone wants to watch a race whose outcome is unclear and where the lead changes frequently.
