NASCAR to Use Unleaded Fuel in 2008. NASCAR announced that NASCAR teams would switch to unleaded fuel by the start of the 2008 season. This is a significant development for NA…SCAR teams as they have long been the target of environmental groups. This change is possible because researchers at Sunoco have developed Sunoco 260 GTX a new fuel formula that does not damage racing engines. Beginning in 2011, Nascar started to use Sunoco Green E15 racing fuel. This is a renewable fuel blended with 15 percent American-made ethanol from American-grown corn.
Indy Cars. They reach speeds a little over 230mph. NASCAR Sprint Cup cars are able to reach a little over 200mph on the straightaways on some tracks. They would be able to rea…ch over 230mph on tracks like Talladega and Daytona if they didn't run restrictor plates in the engines which limit horsepower. Nowadays, however, the Indy Cars are a little faster.
Depends per series. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series uses the COT (Car Of Tomorrow but now referred to Car Of Today). Dodge makes the Charger, Ford makes the Fusion, Toyota makes the …Camry, and Chevy is using the Impala. NASCAR Nationwide Series uses older models of the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Chevy uses the Monte Carlo SS, Ford uses an older model of the Fusion,and the Mustang, Toyota with an older Camry, and Dodge with an older Charger. NASCAR Craftsmen Truck Series uses, well...trucks. We have the Chevy Silverado, Ford F-150, and Toyota Tundra.
Typically sedans that are current model year automobiles compose the style of cars raced in NASCAR. Naturally, they are heavily modified and must retain the profile of factory… models to be eligible.
The car owner, and the driver usually have a percentage deal, let's say, 50-50 split. The prize money from the race is split that way between the owner/driver. The sponser/spo…nsers, pick up the tab for the race, tires, fuel, transportation expenses, ect. The team owner pays to build the cars, and usually owns them. A LOT of parts come in free from automotive sponsers. Say, I think Chevy pretty much would give Herndrick a motor, with a ton of research done on it, which has a value that cannot be set. Sponsor buys tires, and fuel still, I think, say, for example NAPA. They're cool. I think they probably give Michael Waltrip racing all the parts that will interchange. Maybe filters, oil, bulk wire, ect. Last figures I personally heard were, $100,000 per motor, and, around $200,000-$225,000, turn key, race ready. I heard that Hendrick still has a rental program going, though. That would be your best bet, with a sponsor.
In-car means there is communication that is shared with the public. An in-car camera shows the public on TV what the driver sees. The in-car audio allows the public to hear wh…at the driver says to his crew or communicates with commentators, while the viewer watches the race on TV. Usually during a televised race the commentators will say, for example, "Let's go to our in-car radio and speak to Dale Earnhardt Jr."
As of 2010, There is no car solely with Kraft sponsorship. Kraft is still an official sponsor of Nascar. The Stewart-Haas Racing team will have Kraft Foods as one of their spo…nsors. They will drive cars with Kraft products such as Oreo & Ritz on their cars. It will serve as the teams official cookie and cracker. Tony Stewart will drive the #4 Oreo/Ritz Chevy at Daytona in the Nationwide Series.
between 180-200 m.p.h. now if its on short tracks or road courses they would go between 105-140 on short tracks, on road courses they would go 60-150 m.p.h.
It depends on the manufacturer they are representing. Each manufacturer makes a special motor, just for racing. When I worked at Chevy, the public was not allowed to obtain th…ese items.
Clint Bowyer drives the Cheerios car in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series. He is sponsored by General Mills.
A NASCAR race car is measured to be about 125-130 decibels. So they are pretty loud. I have been to 5 NASCAR races and the sound doesn't bother me. It is still pretty loud eve…n if you are sitting 20 to 25 rows from the track.
