Racing cars is not a sport, it's just not.
It's just operating a machine, if you consider it a sport then you also have to consider playing video games a sport, because it's the same concept.
At-least with competitive eating the eaters are the ones responsible, not a machine.
If Jimmie Johnson is an athlete, than so is every cab driver, Bus driver, commuter and pilot in the world.
Being able to eat a lot takes a lot more PHYSICAL effort than driving a car.

Still, going fast doesn't make it a sport.
What exactly makes it a sport? Can someone tell me?

ever hear of a word..
you doubt you would be scared
extreme sports are extreme sports..
you don't have to wack a bat, thow a ball, or physically hit someone..
Racing is a competition..
you have places and standings in the race..
You play offense and defense in racing..
Blocking somebody to get a space..taking the lead .. gunning for the end of the race..
it's all about which car has the most stamina lmao. (pitcrew, car itself)
Tell Dale Earnhardt Jr. Nascar isn't a sport, he'd probably slap the smile off your face..

NASCAR is for inbred hicks who need an activity while they're drunk.
Competitive eating is for fans of real sports and heart disease
