    Not fair statement. NASCAR is actually one of the most watched sports leagues on TV today... top 5 I believe. At one point it was #2, but I think it has dropped a bit since, behind college football at least. Do I watch it regularly? No. But I'll catch a little here and there.

    FOX Sports is now reporting the news. Link: http://network.yardbarker.com/irl/ar...photo/10952564

    It also mentions this crossover promotion as Danica will be driving a Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed car at a future race in Texas. I think it's the first SEGA themed NASCAR vehicle.

    In case you're wondering what the biggest growing sport in America right now Kaito, it's soccer. The Euro 2012 tournament starts this weekend. I know off topic, but it's worth mentioning.

    Fixed that for you. I doubt anyone outside of the US really gives much of a damn about college football, nor NASCAR.

    It is? Hell, I'm from New York, and to me American Football has fallen off the wayside in the past few years.

    I would've thought baseball is #1.

    No it hasn't, the NFL is way popular than before and by the way the New York Giants won the Super Bowl this year

    The only person whos right here is xboy(hey your SN changed!)

    This is the list in order.
    1)American Football
    2)Baseball
    3)Basketball
    4)Hockey
    5)Soccer (But its not internationally popular)
    Soccer is not that popular and its popularity is growing....slowly. Most Americans don't like it cause...well they find it boring including me. Its popular among US children! You can say that.

    Um...no. In southern states yes but internationally....no. It's true that its losing popularity.

    You can say its the most popular racing sport here in the US but against the all the other sports...no competition.

    You gotta think the crashes were amongst the reasons of NASCAR's brief rise in popularity. That's why America's Funniest Home Videos (aka AFV) is still on. But you can't deny it has its hardcore fans - I know a few personally even right here in Nebraska.

    International popularity is something NASCAR has missed to boat at though. If the NFL can have a yearly game in Europe - why can't NASCAR have a race in Europe? I mean the IRL has international races. So does Formula 1. Just a thought.

    Option, you're really out of touch of pop culture if you think anything BUT the NFL is the #1 TV sports event in the US. Especially when the Super Bowl breaks viewing records year after year.

    Because we in Europe can find something appealing about American football. It's like rugby, but with more glitz and adverts. Nascar on the other hand? Why would we want to watch saloon cars drive around an oval when we can watch F1 cars - with their rocket engines and stuff - drive around interesting circuits? You know, with turns and stuff.

    But yeah, back on topic. That Vyse chap from Skies of Arcadia is playable in this one, right? CapnCloudchaser should be happy.
