I’ll be honest here, Nascar is the one automotive sport that I simply have no interest in. I understand that there’s more to it than just running cars around in a circle, but from a visual standpoint (at least on TV anyway) it just doesn’t appeal to me. I will concede however that watching a race in person turns this event into a completely different ballgame. This is something that was proven to me last year as I attended the Brickyard 400. Drifting cars around a track at 180 mph is one thing, but to do it lap after lap without crashing is nothing short of astonishing. The problem however is that I can’t attend races on a regular basis, and like I said TV just doesn’t do the sport justice. This is where my XBOX 360 and Nascar 2011 comes in. Granted I know it’s virtual, but games today have become so advanced and have such amazing graphics that believe it or not, they actually fill the void. Above is the new trailer for Nascar 2011 from Activision and by the looks of it I have a feeling that I’ll be parting with $50 when this is released in the first quarter of 2011.
