Nick Young

NASCAR Became a Sport?

EXCLUSIVE

080414_nick_young_launchLakers star Nick Young just stepped on the same landmine that blew up in Donovan McNabb's face -- questioning whether NASCAR deserves to be called a sport.

Swaggy P was answering a simple enough question -- we asked him which sport is most affected by rain. Nick could have just said softball ... he was in the middle of a rain delay at a celeb game, anyway.

Instead he went and said this.

Someone get 5-time Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson on the horn ... we've got a new passenger for him.

Then again ... maybe you agree with Swaggy.

ESPN ran a Sports Science special on racing back in 2011 and said that testing proved race car drivers have some of the best reaction times, endurance, strength and concentration in any sport.

It's just Nick Young's ignorant, racist point-of-view that 'colors' his impression of auto racing. Pity the fool.

They are called motor sports for a reason.
