I love Bill Nye. I also love NASCAR, but I do get annoyed by how much the Association tries to “regulate” the cars. NASCAR routinely outlaws technological advancements at the behest of manufacturers (anyone remember Richard Petty’s Roadrunner?) and under the guise of “testing the skills of the drivers themselves” (restrictor plate racing, anyone?). Rednecks everywhere pitched a fit when Toyota joined the fray (and subsequently started winning races). Professional auto racing should be about pushing the limits of automotive technology (look at Formula E) and NASCAR could embrace electric cars, legitimizing them in the eyes of the naysayers.
