Survey names NASCAR top U.S. motorsports brand

In what can only be described as a piercing glimpse into the obvious, a survey conducted by ESPN Sports has revealed that motorsports fans love watching racecars turn left. The sports network released the findings of a poll it conduted last year gauging viewers' favorite brands in U.S. motorsports-- the verdict? Some 59.5 percent of the tally sided with NASCAR, dwarfing the second place 13.4 percent showing of National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) backers. The survey's results were rounded out in order by motorcycle racing, Formula One, IndyCar and Champ Car, the latter of which netted just 1.4 percent.
