The coast of California is more redneck?

And most of Tennessee doesn't even have indoor plumbing.

Even if a large 1 mile or 1 1/2 mile track was built in La, there are no open weekends in the NASCAR schedule to bring in a race.

Take a race away from Pocono and build another track

My guess is because we don't have a track and there's a lot more water activities down here.

That's true. It's hard to grow up racing when every 100 yards you hit a pothole.

Hey now. I did the Richard Petty experience and I encourage everyone to at least try it. It'll give you a greater appreciation of the sport. It's incredibly hard to turn at that speed. The fastest I got that car up to was 130 mph just because I couldn't control it at any greater speed. (For all those tough guys saying that's slow, try it.) It's incredibly hard to turn at that speed.

More of a coonass population than a redneck population. But that differentiation is for a whole different thread.

IMO, La has many other things that people focus on that keeps them entertained than racing in general.
