American Race fan has not yet been interested in formula 1 racing till now. It is a surprising fact because the formula 1 racing is a widely known racing premiere across the world. In order to find the ignorance of them, we can mention the NASCAR. It has made them obsessed and Formula 1 has no room to fit.
Origin Of NASCAR: The Heart Of American Race Fan
NASCAR is commonly known as stock car racing. Needless to say, every American race fan is aware of its origin. Still, let us have a revise on history. We need to travel to the prohibition and bootlegging period in America in order to find out the origin. The stock car drivers used to make modifications to their cars for better handling and more speed of course. After the end of the prohibition period, the drivers of these tock cars started racing for entertainment and gaining profit from it. The races took place majorly in the Southern States of America. And this gave birth to the stock car racing. American Race Fans have recently celebrated the 100th running of Indianapolis 500 during an American open-wheel competition.
Formula 1 Vs NASCAR: Why American Race Fan Incline To The Later One?
There are different differences between a Formula 1 car and a NASCAR car. An American race fan can only dream about the locations of the actual tracks, manufacturers, and drivers of Formula 1 cars. On the other hand, the drivers and other crews of NASCAR cars are based on albeit nice, NC, and Charlotte. No one can ever compare it to Monaco ever.
In order to conduct a race like Formula 1 or NASCAR, a high budget is required for the organizers. The Formula 1 racing needs a budget of 150 million dollars to conduct a race successfully. On the other hand, NASCAR runs on a far low budget. A rough calculation of 14 million dollars can be calculated for every race of NASCAR. This is so because almost every driver and crew of NASCAR belong to the United States. This has a plus point as well. If one wants to arrange a Formula 1 racing, it will take a long time for the proper teams for the racing are spread across the world and it is hard to gather them at the same place at one time. On the other hand, the NASCAR teams and drivers belong from the United States only. So, one can easily arrange NASCAR racing within short notice.
Besides that, the NASCAR crews are popular among the American Race Fan for being originated from the United States. They can meet the drivers personally and reach to them is not hard or costly for them.
Despite this easy availability, the Formula 1 racing is much more famous among the people across the world than NASCAR is. We hope, one day the American race fan would prefer formula 1 racing than NASCAR too.
