    This is probably easy but I haven't figured it out yet, so don't give me too much crap. :o How can I get rid of NASCAR from the apps list. I seem to only be able to remove the ones I installed.

    You can't remove it. Some of the apps that are sprint apps and were pre-installed on the device you can't remove.

    With root and nand unlock. Not sure if the second has been achieved.

    Ahh, Sprint. Let no device be spared from the ever-present NASCAR app. I think removing the NASCAR app was one of the first tweaks I did on my Pre.

    You'll need root to get rid of it, unfortunately.

    what gave sprint the idea that nascar culture is universal enough to be appreciated by a significant part of their customer base.

    You'd have that complaint with ANY sprint phone. The Evo, Hero, Moment all need root as well to remove this app. Last time I had a Pre, you couldn't remove it then either, just hide it so it wasn't visible.

    I have no idea. I've never even fired up the NASCAR app. What does it even do?

    I'm too lazy to unhide it and see for myself.

    You can remove it on the Pre (via the rm command), but what's the point? It's not an irritation once you hide it, and the patch to hide it is a 1-liner.

    That was one of the main reasons I rooted my Evo. I only have Sprint TV now, which rarely gets used.

    Hmmm. I feel like there aren't very many hillbillies running around with high-end smartphones, but I have no data to base this conclusion off of.

    okay, so how do you just hide it on the Epic?

    eh.. have you seen the hardcore nascar fans who RV camp at the racetrack? Think they can't afford a $200 phone?
