Rocket Racing

This is just so damn cool.

MSNBC reports that Peter Diamandis, the man behind the Ansari X Prize, has teamed up with NASCAR backer Granger Whitelaw to put together exactly what you’d expect them to:

The X Prize Cup.

It’s bringing 21st-century racing into people’s personal living rooms. … It’s really the mix of NASCAR excitement and spaceflight.

I’m not a big fan of NASCAR. It really strikes me as painfully boring. But you know what would make it really freaking cool? If the cars flew through space with 20′ flames spouting out the backs.

Hell yeah.
