Washington D.C - America's favorite sporting event has taken a turn for the worst when it's CEO was found talking with Russian car company LADA's Brand Ambassador. It is unsure what was said at the meeting, but with autonomous cars taking over our roads we can only suspect Russia wants to take over Nascar.
Robot and Rider reached out to the CEO of Nascar but he declined to comment. Nascar fans are in an outrage because they never thought their beloved sport could be tainted by the Russians.
Indianapolis, Indiana- Nascar racing has been on the decline since its peak in 2004. Cars going in circles can only be watched so many times. But when autonomous cars have taken over Nascar, it has become cool again. "Race car drivers" can crash the cars and no one gets hurt. Well, no humans do.
The only reason people tune into Nascar is for the crashes. Sad, but true. Now that robots control the cars, "drivers" are able to take bigger risks. There are at least 10 crashes, per race now. Robot and Rider even found a direct correlation between crashes and viewership.
Nascar fan and driver told Robot and Rider that, "I just fucking love it when robots crash into each other, they are so dumb." Since humans, not control the autonomous Nascar race cars, their drivers will purposely crash them into the other cars, to please the fans.
There have been some great robots lost in the sport of Nascar. We can only hope that humans realize, robots have souls too.
