It's interesting to see this story, that NASCAR's attendance and TV ratings are way down.

I don't watch car races but yesterday (I think it was) there was one on. And in flipping the channels, we came across it. I was saying, How can anyone be interested in this? It's so boring.

Then there's this statement in the Washington Post article:

Moreover, there's a growing perception that the racing is dull.
I didn't realize there was a growing perception of that. I figured it was just the same as always, people thinking it was interesting. How exactly that could be, I wouldn't know.

It's cars going around in a circle. The camera is forever going from place to place. You can't focus on anything. It's extremely, extremely boring.
