If nascar didnt allow silly unsportsmanlike crap like bumping, etc, and raced more circuits, and less ovals, it would actually be fun to follow, cause on any sunday, any number of top runners can win.
1 - eurotrash didn't used to be part of the european racing experience, and being a spectator need not be about partying (there isn't that much partying at the Rolex 24)

2 - I'm not a NASCAR hater myself, I just like watching F1 more

3 - bumping in a stock car is not unsportsmanlike. Bumping in other racing vehicles may be, but not in a stock car. If for no other reason than you'd get into grey areas where they want to black flag someone for bumping, but really he was just bump drafting, which is quite sportsmanlike (it helps out the guy in front of you)
