Another year and RG won't be messing with "toy car's" any longer. He will be racing REAL race cars. His family owns a "fleet" of 410 Sprint Cars, and he is going to drive for the family team! !

Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively.

And don't try to tell me that driving a toy car requires any real physical activity.

I can see it now the "Drive a rc car and lose 30lb exercise plan".
Losing 30lb could be possible marshaling your race

You can lose 30 lbs easy marshaling the amateur class mains (sadly it is probably mostly water weight). You would probably gain 30 lbs marshaling for the expert mains.

the word sport implies that there is a certain level of competition involved,which is what racers are in it for, while the word hobby is associated with relaxing , and unwinding. I race, so it's a sport. If you want to spend hundreds on equipment to just trash around the backyard with it's a hobby. So while hobbyists play with toy cars, racers race with race bred gear for the utmost level of performance to compete against other drivers, not other hobbyists. Besides, the bragging rights are way more valuable than a dusty bowling trophy.

Uh, and another definition, from Wiki:

Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determiner of the outcome (winning or losing), but the term is also used to include activities such as mind sports (a common name for some card games and board games with little to no element of chance) and motor sports where mental acuity or equipment quality are major factors.

So you're both right. Quit arguing on the Internet.
