    When you drive a stock car, anything even an ARCA ReMax car then you have room to say that it’s not athletic but it’s safe to assume that if you did then you’d have a completely different view. Until then however you have no idea of what it’s like to drive an 850 Horsepower hunk of metal that does not want to turn or grip the race track all while being subjected to the G forces of a space shuttle launch (Which is 3 Gs by the way).

    There goes the little kid resorting to personal insults and stereotypes. It’s been calculated that 3 lateral G forces is equal to approximately 40 pounds of force on the neck, and that number doesn’t come from me either. So try using something besides personal attacks and pathetic stereotypes.

    “3 Gs is equal to 40 pounds of force.”

    LOL!

    Hey dumbass the “G” stands for “Gravity” The number is the number of “gravities” .
    2 “G”s is double the car or driver weight. 3 “G”s is triple. the weight.

    Yes I DO know what Gs are. YOU obviously don’t.
    You’re just a typical uneducated NASCAR fan.

    And by the way in that passage the word “control” means a person who is not a NASCAR driver. Just wanted to clear that up for you seeing as you’re probably not familiar with science related terms.

    Race car drivers demonstrate trunk flexion and extension force production, leg extension strength, and neck extension strength that is similar to a variety of other athletes. Racing also requires the ability to control multiplaner acceleration of the torso, neck, and head and react to acute visual stimuli. Race car drivers demonstrate better reaction time than controls and superior hand, ankle, trunk, neck, grip and leg extensor strength compared with controls.

    So at the tracks that pull the most Gs, Charlotte, Dover, Bristol, Texas, and Atlanta, drivers have over 40 pounds of force being exerted on their neck in every turn. Also in the words of The Journal of Strength and Conditioning (Cont.)

    If it’s so easy then try doing it yourself. Or better yet watch ESPN’s Sports Science segment on Denny Hamlin. Common issues faced by NASCAR drivers, soreness of leg and neck areas, third degree burns on feet, hyperthermia, etc. As for your other comment which you removed like a coward, turning right is NOT harder than turning left nor does it require more effort to do so. 2.9 to 3.9 Gs in the corners depending on the track and by the way 3 Gs is equal to 40 pounds of force.

    Yeah, it takes lots of stamina to sit down for 3 hours while driving a car in a circle. Uh huh. Right.

    I’ve been on a road racing team for years, so I’m well aware of G forces. We deal with them all the time, but then again, unlike your favorite left-turn circle-burners, our car turns equally well BOTH ways.Our 358″ Chevrolet made 749 on the dyno and we’ve won 3 National Championships at Mid-Ohio, .turning left AND RIGHT!

    Ever heard of the phrase “G forces”, how about “Stamina” or “focus”? Stamina and focus are the two big keys in auto racing. Of course since your definition of a “sport” is where people run back and fourth on a field repeatedly or hit a ball with a stick and run around a circle you could never understand that.

    G forces require stamina. Of course judging by your comment, you probably don’t know what G forces are.

    Go straight, turn left, go straight, turn left all while sitting down.

    Yeah, real “athletes”…

    And smart? You betcha…

    @ESCOXTC so you think bullshit like basketball,foot ball, baseball, and hockey should get paid millions. Fuck no. The throw balls catch balls anf or pucks. I can do that but i dont bitch about not getting paid. These lock outs are fuckn stupid to you dont need an extra million to warm a bench or throw pig skin or dribble a fucking ball.
