Can someone explain this to me?

So the fallout from various NASCAR teams' alleged cheating has been in the news, and not being a follower of the so-called "sport," I'm asking someone out there who knows more about this than I to please answer me these two questions:

1.) Is it "cheating" to try to customize one's car to go faster?

2.) If yes, why does anyone watch this?

I'm sorry, I'll openly admit to my almost complete ignorance on the subject, but this seems ridiculous to me.

I have no clue why I'm blogging about this, so I'll stop now. Have a good weekend, everyone!

I don't get it either. Can't imagine a more boring "sport" to watch...with the possible exception of golf.

yeah. boring. sport.

it would be cooler if they could cheat to make the race go faster, instead of just the cars. "Well Bill they're off, and only 499 laps to go...wait...49? Uh, 9 laps? well, there you have it, only 9 laps to go!
