NASCAR Tough Tracks

Every sport has their "big game" and, usually, it is a grand finale with the best teams competing at the very end of the season to claim the most respected title: champion. But not for NASCAR. Instead, they start the season with the most prestigious race, the Daytona 500, which also offers the largest pay day for the top finishers. For many racecar drivers, their goal is to one day make it to Victory Lane at the Daytona 500. Unfortunately, many of them fall short of this goal due to the difficulty of the track and for some, a string of bad luck. Even though Daytona International Speedway has a reputation for its massive wrecks and high speeds, it isn't the only race track on the NASCAR circuit that drivers have difficulty navigating.

Love and hate coexist in a weird space in any given wrestling match or backstage promo.

There is no greater evidence of professional wrestling as “sports entertainment” than the use and effectiveness of finishing maneuvers. Finishers, as they are often called, are signature moves used by wrestlers, often near the end of the match, to finally secure the pinfall and win. What makes finishers so fun (and infuriating) is that in the hands of one superstar, they are simply another traditional wrestling maneuver, but when categorized as a finisher, they become overpowered, unstoppable moves that no one can kick out...
