    NASCAR is promoted as America's true sport, founded in the USA, etc. Yet they adopt foreign crap. Races like the upcoming Camping World 500 in Phoenix is 310 laps and 310 miles long, but they talk foreign country and it's 500 kilometers. My confederate flag will always be measured in feet and inches.

    Actually, PIR is 1.022 miles long, so equal to the communist kilometers.
