Augusta Nationals IHBA 21 & 22 july, and while it doesnt get the exposure that NHRA gets, it is insane. especially Top fuel Hydro. and the sound cannot be replicated by any tv or sound system. besides I dont think you would want to.

I have to agree that the most boring racing to watch on TV is sail boat racing. The most exciting races to watch on TV has to be Offshore Powerboat Racing, I just wish that they could do a better job on TV with the ( Engine Sounds ). I want to hear the engine sounds when the props come out of the water and the throttle man is working the sticks and I want to hear the roar of these mighty racing machines. Louder, Louder and More Louder. And when someone does a Video of their Offshore Powerboat, I don't want to hear Music Video, I want to hear the Music of the Roar of their Engines.

I have been to this and plan to go again this year... It can be a tad slow moving though. I do understand most of the delays are safety related- One nice thing, it's really all access as far as walking around the pits

Drag Racing Rocks! Top Fuel, Funny Car and Super Stock are my favorites!

In person Drag racing is even better! To watch anything going from stand still to over 300 mph in 3 seconds.... come on... If you like motor sports you can't NOT like drag racing...

They're all pretty boring to watch on tv, but NASCAR is the worst.

All racing(an pretty much everything else) is boring to watch on TV . . . . . now, getting out and either seeing it or doing it live. Thats a different story
