I would lose based on his amount of posts.

What would be interesting though is taking a 1/4 mile car and running it on a road course. Or vise versa....

also, bringing a (stock) v6 auto to a drag race vs a v8 is not a good idea.

BTW, lets not go down that road, I am fine with my v6 auto.

Trade in, is a possible, upgrade is inevitable for me.

It really depends on whether I'm a participant or watching.

Drag is a blast if I'm in it, boring as **** to watch IMO

Roadracing is fun both ways to me

I'd rather have my toe nails ripped off with pliers than watch circle track..

Never thought about it that way, interesting.

Think of John Force driving a road course.. Or.. 1/4 Mile driver being Max Angeletlli or Jordan Taylor at age 22 a freakishly great road race driver.

again interesting thank you!!!!!

Yea, thinking about it I should of added 1/8 mile, auto-x and or circle track.

I watch NASCAR during the last laps. I will watch GT Cup Racing almost from beginning to end. 1/4 mile maybe up to a commercial break.

This is a different point of view from others but I like watching drag racing when it's street cars or "real cars". The NHRA series's on espn or something are boring as hell to me because you already expect them to run blazing fast times. I like seeing cars that can drive in, put down some great times, and then drive back home. That's impressive to me. Plus I like seeing cars that I didn't expect to run super fast actually put down a great time.

I do like watching road course racing. I've never participated but would love to. The only thing is that drag racing is easier to get into because it doesn't take such a toll on things like road course racing. I'll be participating soon though.

How about combining both of them and making it a one lane, one car drag race for a mile.... My chosen form of racing....

Standing start, go as fast as you can... unprepared track surface, DOT tires.... drag radials not permitted...

You've probably never seen a dirt track modified race then. It's the most intense racing I've ever seen! Sprint cup is boring though, I'll agree.

Road racing. Been a corner-carving enthusiast (addict?) as a licensed driver for over 50 years. Go-karts before driver's license, a downhill buggy specifically built to take corners before that.

I had an absolute blast at AutoCross, I've done drag racing at test and tune a bunch over the last year. Not saying I get bored at it, but I definitely want more of the other kind. Waiting until I can afford to do a road course. Fees, special insurance, tires, it's more expensive for me to feel comfortable than just going and doing a couple of passes on the drag strip. But it's all fun.

I've done both, in my (now gone) '95 Z28. By a gigantic margin, open track road racing is the most exhilarating thing I have ever done in an automobile. There is zero comparison, and the road racing requires a lot more out of both car and driver. I'm thinking about getting a 1LE just to play on the track again.

Only done one auto-x once and I loved it! So leaning toward that

Racing, like sex, should last longer than 9-13 seconds.
