(Talladega, Alabama) - A study of NASCAR fans has found that those who attend NASCAR events have an average IQ higher than most college graduates.
According to the Einstein Institute, which did the study, it's a myth that the typical NASCAR fan is a redneck; a "good ole boy who drives a pickup truck with a gun rack mounted across the back window".
And many NASCAR fans are women. Educated women, with high IQ's, who just happen to have large perky breasts and wear tight tank tops and short shorts.
A spokesperson for NASCAR, commenting on the study, said, "We love our fans. We never realized how smart they were, maybe because so many are named Bubba or Barbie".
Upscale sponsors are also taking note and we may soon see NASCAR vehicles sporting, not beer or power tool logos, but logos of wineries, private banking firms and gourmet restaurants.
