Auto racing should not be considered a sport, amirite?

I'm ok with racing, but it pisses me off when ESPN shows the World Series of Poker.

Golf involves physical exertion, skill, and competitiveness.

And where's the physical exertion? It's sitting in a car driving around a track.

Physical exertion of the cars, I guess.
And technically the drivers move their arms and legs.

Chess players move their arms and legs too. When I'm sitting in a desk in class, I move my arms and legs. Heck, when I'm asleep I move my arms and legs. That does not qualify.

I think the heat of the cars/trucks is what causes the physical exertion. Those cars are not air conditioned. A driver can lose 10lbs in one race just from all the sweat.

Habe you ever watched Formula 1? It's basically a driver pushing his body to the absolute limits, and pushing his mental capabilities, and his endurance to the point where it's about to snap. All at speeds of up to 170 miles per hour.

Physical exertion means exercise. Exercise involves muscle. Guess what cars don't have.

Autoracing isn't a sport. The drivers don't exercise while racing. They pump adrenaline probably, but that's not exercise. They might exercise outside of the race, but that's just exercising personally. Autoracing is more of a game.

In NASCAR, it's all really wide left turns in enclosed trucks. In F1, it's open air racing with straights, left turns, right turns, and all sorts of hills and such. All of that is being taken at speed from 90-200 mph, which strains a driver both physically and mentally, and pushes their endurance.

And by definition, it's considered a "sport". And by most other people, it's considered a "sport". And by technical dipshits who like to spout out their matter-o'-fact ****, it's considered an "activity".

Cheerleading is competitive. It's exercising and it requires skill. It is a SPORT. "Legally" my ****, then the legal shit is wrong.

That's what I'm trying to say. It should be legally considered a sport, but it's not. Yes, it started out as just dancing, but now it is quite a bit different. I know if I tried it, I couldn't do that shit.

A sport by my definition is an activity in which a person dresses unusually and physically exerts themselves. Car racing does not count as physical exertion. Sure, it gets hot in there, but it also gets hot in Arizona and I don't call all the senior citizens out on their porches athletes.

Once you actually race in a Grand Prix Formula 1, I'd like to see you STILL not call it a sport. I understand where you're getting but you have no idea what kind of things the drivers are going thru

It doesn't matter what they go through. It's what they're doing that matters.
