Letters, 7/16: Stop NASCAR to save gas

Some good comments over there

We keep hearing that we must conserve gas to help lower oil use and price. They say they want us to drive 55 mph to lower fuel use.

Then why doesn’t the government stop NASCAR racing? Consider all the fuel traveling from one race to another, in their motor homes, the fuel used in qualifying and the fuel used to run the race itself. Also, the fuel used by those fans who go to watch the races.

There must be many thousands of gallons of fuel wasted for each race.

That would reduce American fuel use more than what the normal drivers can save.

Is NASCAR that important to us that we can’t do without it?
