On the Circuit
Most of the major auto-racing leagues have grueling seasons. Just ask the drivers of NASCAR, which has a season that encompasses most of the year. Although the drivers and crew may tire of all the action, diehard racing fans can't get enough.
Then there are all the differing types of races (oval, street, strip, rally) the reality is, if you are looking for an event you should be able to find one most weekends year round. Motor sports are popular at all points of the globe, so finding at least something to watch on the tube will be easy.
Entire cable channels are now devoted entirely to racing, so motor junkies can always get a fix. And unlike athletes in more physically taxing sports who need a good off season to recoup, the main attraction in racing is the car.
