Tailgating: Behind the numbers

Research compares, contrasts NASCAR and NFL tailgaters

Quicken Loans Racing and Beckon Media created an interesting infographic compiling research and comparing the traits of NASCAR and NFL tailgaters. The numbers are interesting, if at times a little suspect. For example, the research says that 80% of the U.S. population (240 million people) tailgates at least once a year. That number seems a bit high, but we'll roll with it in the interests of passing this along so that you can see what you think.

Among the other findings:
  • The Best Tailgating Speedway is: Indianapolis Motor Speedway
  • Amount spent on tailgating per year: $35 billion
  • Percent who prepare their food on site at the venue: 93
  • Most popular game for tailgaters: Cornhole
  • Gender breakdown for NASCAR tailgaters: Men, 64%; Women, 36%
