I've never actually been to a NASCAR race. I've watched one on TV.

Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old things they are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away dixieland
Oh I wish I was in dixie, away, away
In dixieland I take my stand to live and die in dixie
Cause dixieland, thats where I was born
Early lord one frosty morning
Look away, look away, look away dixieland

If you had to pick one song as your favourite anthem of the South, what would it be?

You should go. TV just doesn't do justice to the colors, sounds and smells of auto racing. Highly recommended at least once. Talladega being preferable.

No--I hope that's a joke. The South gave Bush both elections. But I didn't have anything to do with it.

I saw Talledega, just a couple of weeks ago. It seems like some people weren't happy witih the results. They pelted the winner with beer cans---and got themselves banned from future NASCAR races, according to a local newspaper. Did you see that?

Sure did and it's happened there before. Inside the sport we call those 'fans' "f@#kin' morons." Definitely not cool. But maybe some previously occupied seats are now available for the next race.

It's happened before? Geez. This was my first experience with NASCAR. I'm not surprised. Some people just couldn't enjoy the race. I think they were disappointed that Dale Jr. didn't win.

I never really pondered it before, but if someone had asked me to name southern states I wouldn't have named Florida. I'm not really sure why as it is clearly geographically southern. Strange.

Florida has had such a huge influx of non-Southern people movoe in that it can't properly be considered a Southern State, thus the lingering use of the word "cracker" among the natives of the state.

I don't think there could be any one broadly agreed-upon answer to this--ultimately the South is just a region of the US, and while everyone might agree on 'The Star-Spangled Banner' as a unifying "anthem" that one way or the other addresses something shared and central to everyone's self-concept, there isn't any one experience of being Southern so irreducible that it could really be 'anthemized' in that way. In my opinion, anyhow.

Personally, I'd probably choose something by a Delta bluesman, maybe a Robert Wilkins song. But I'm from western Mississippi so of course I'd say that...
