The world of motor sports is a myriad place. With a whole spectrum of motor sports racing being prevalent, the discussions have often simmered down as to which sport is the best. However, within this diversified world of the sport, there have been two such sports that have claimed the lion’s share; NASCAR and Formula 1. The debate between the two as to which sport is the best has continued since time immemorial, but there has been no concrete answer to date.

While the world of motorsports still awaits an answer to this mysterious question, comedian Gabriel Iglesias seems to have a reply to this feud. The comedian reinforced how different both the sports are as different Chalk and Cheese as he gears up for NASCAR’s Mexico Series’ inaugural race preceding the Busch Clash at LA Coliseum. The hilarious assertions made by ‘Fluffy’ on ‘The Talk’ had left the host and the other guests in stitches.

LA Coliseum has been perhaps one of the iconic tracks of NASCAR. The ¼mile oval built inside the Coliseum is set to host the pre-season non-points race in early February. However, there is still a significant amount of time before the Next-Gen cars hit the tracks and, in turn, has left the NASCAR audience parched. Nevertheless, it seems that NASCAR will finally be able to quench their thirst as the NASCAR Mexico series will be hosting the inaugural race in the LA Coliseum.

This does not end the surprises for the racing fans, as NASCAR fans announced that the world-renowned comedian Gabriel ‘Fluffy’ Iglesias would be serving as the Grand Marshall for the inaugural King Taco La Batalla en El Coliseo on Sunday, February 4th. This would be followed by a performance of the Mexican National Anthem by Mariachi Rams. Nevertheless, being crowned with this position, Iglesias was more than elated and was evident in his appearance on ‘The Talk’ show. When asked about the difference between F1 and NASCAR, the comedian asserted, NASCAR vs F1, it’s a very different audience. NASCAR is a lot more down-to-earth. Okay. Cuz you say the wrong thing, it’s not going to make it to the TV and I don’t wanna be that guy.”

Continuing on the same lines, the host asked Iglesias out of the two sports, in which one would he see the beer hats with the ‘things in it’? To this, Fluffy retorted, “Oh! That’s NASCAR.”

“All day. One is like ‘Here, here’ and the other one- ‘I tell you what’. Yeah, so very different. F1’s the pinky out and NASCAR’s the pinky in. You are laughing, but they are not going to let me do the thing on Saturday.”

“There are a ton of people who helped me in my career still involved in the series so it will be cool to go back and race with them. NASCAR’s Mexico Series is a great place to learn and over time I think will start producing drivers who will come to America. I cannot thank Quaker State and NASCAR enough for making this opportunity possible.”
