3. I believe NASCAR pays them to ask

In those polls, NASCAR is simply a Zogby client. A single poll can service the needs of many clients.

4. Because they want you to answer 'Yes,' 'No,' or 'Refused.'
That's just a guess, though. :dunce:

5. Because NASCAR is a form of nationalism.
Cause it's not polite to come out and ask if you're a manly man. :rofl: you know, Viagra and Pennzoil and all.

Also a blind consumerism test. NASCAR advertisers promote wastefull, high consumption lifestyles.

7. They're trying to peg your demographic
E.G, are you a NASCAR watching, evangelical church going, Wal-Mart shopping Bush lover or not? (not that everybody who watches NASCAR falls into that group but it's the stereotype)
