Nascar Question

This is my first time watching this stuff, only because it is on instead of House, and I can't help but notice some slow as hell cars getting passed while riding the inside line.

Do these cars just take a couple laps to get back to their top speed or does Nascar allow some slow as **** cars in the races?

And damn they spill a ton of fuel haha.

the pack runs about 10-15mph faster than single cars around the track because of how they break the wind for the cars behind allowing the cars behind to push them around the track.


it also takes a lap and a half to get up to full speed after pitting.

Those cars probably are running a straight 7 engine instead of the big V8s of the American nascars . NASCAR is pretty complicated though there was a guy who used to be a commentator for them who posts on here , I can't remember his name at the moment

I already sent Clawhammer a PM about ordering parts for my Accord, I was told he was a parts manager at a local store.

No reply though...

His inbox was probably loaded. He gets a lot of questions thanks to his job(s).

Shoot him a PM again. He just got me a sick deal on some wheels.

Crazy ****...

Now I see why people watch this.

And I sent Clawhammer like 5 more PM's and it said he received them all, so his inbox definitely isn't full...I'll send some more tomorrow.

No wonder! He works at a fruit stand. Nascar advice, no. Comparison between spherical fruits, yes.

NASCAR is more fun in person, partially because I constantly think to myself, "Well at least I have teeth."

It's pretty crazy standing by the fence and feeling a full pack go by at full speed.

Glad I could help. With his help I was able to confirm that a watermelon is, indeed, larger than an orange.
