Guest dahzel Posted July 16 Report Share Posted July 16 I heard some guys on the radio today debating this. I mos def think it is even though it is not the common definition of or the drivers your typical athletes. It takes a lot of calculations and a hell of a lot of concentration to drive a car upwards of 200mph (not to mention balls). Everything from tire and fuel calculations to temperature readings and drafting play a huge part in it. These guys can lose up to 10 pounds in a race from sweating from the intense heat. A few years ago Tony Stewart did the Indy 500 and then the Coca Cola 600 (nascars longest race) in the same day. The second he stepped from the car he collapsed from heat and sheer exhaustion. 1100 miles in one day is a lot.You can argue the same point in golf. They aren't your typical athletes but mos def compete in a sport. You can have a guy that is outta shape and couldn't even run 1/2 a mile beat the hell out of a guy in perfect shape. It think it's funny how different everyone's opinion is on these 2 sports. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
