Why is this viewed as such a redneck sport? The car builders are college educated engineers and experts in aerodynamics. The engine builders are on the leading edge of engine building technology and research. And they race in places like California, Vegas, New York, Chicago, and even internationally in Mexico and Canada. The majority of drivers aren't named "Bubba" or anything like that, they are Jimmie, Jeff, Carl, Kyle, etc. And their are now Canadians, Australians and South Americans racing in the highest level. So I ask, what is more redneck about racing a car than racing anything else, even a bicycle?
