It was boring AF no doubt but at the time I thought it'd be pretty good.

We use to watch the indy 500 when I was young on tv and now I remember why, Like I mentioned before Gordon Johncock was from Hastings Michigan. I like to watch the last few laps of some races but don't go out of my way to watch . I do like to watch YouTube clips of the endurance type races , and latly I have been getting into the history of car industry and the differnt eras.

I used to turn on the Indy 500 when there was maybe 15 minutes left...not anymore.

I check in on Sunday for about the last three holes of the PGA majors...relatively the same for the majors finals of the ATP.

not clear why exactly you dumped on him for not enjoying the racing then.

racing cars around, especially in circles, is really, really dumb. no two ways about it.

Who'd I dumb on? He didn't 'not' enjoy it because he didn't go for the car racing. Triple negative. Sweet.
