Is NASCAR just 'wrestling on wheels?'

   Frank Jolley, a columnist for The Daily Commercial newspaper in Leesburg, Fla., certainly thinks NASCAR and World Wrestling Entertainment are virtually one and the same and makes no bones about making the comparison.

   Jolley's column is sparked by NASCAR's likely move to alter its points system again this season.

   "I guess with sagging television ratings and acres of empty seats at race tracks, NASCAR has decided to sacrifice reality in an effort to attract new fans and boost viewership," he writes.

   "Why doesn’t NASCAR come out and admit they’re in the sports entertainment business?
It’s become wrestling on wheels."
