Stamina? Oh yes, it does require stamina to be in a car for hours going in circles. I'm surprised NASCAR drivers don't suffer from severe vertigo.
Actually, your snark aside, it does require stamina to maintain control over a vehicle traveling at high velocities and in close proximity to other large, heavy, fast moving vehicles.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, a sport is:

Sport (n)
1. "an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment."
NASCAR is a competition. It has rules and regulations. It involves teams and individuals who compete against one another, requires skill, is mentally and physically taxing for the driver, and it is done for entertainment.
