    They are good at 3 things. Turning slowly left, making cars that handle terrible, and related to that, crashing in a spectacular manner.

    They're also extremely good at making a car very slippery through the air. Which is clearly the aim of the visit.

    But also to be probably one of the most popular motorsports series growing; where drivers get more money than everybody else (ok 1 or 2 F1 drivers get more, but not a ggod nuber of drivers), and given the amount of money they invest, it should be respected. They are no longer heavy dinosaurs moving slowly in ovals. They are real race cars nowadays. And I am not a fan of oval racing or american style but I feel I have to respect real engineering and racing.

    NASCAR's shrinking and frankly give it all the stick you want unless they're racing at Watkins Glen. Then pull up a chair and get some popcorn. The big point is Ford has an aerodynamics center for NASCAR and their half-baked, nostalgia-fueled GT run. And M-Sport got access to it.

    Real engine designers don't talk "horsepower"..That's for children on forums..
    Real engine guys talk BMEP...Brake Mean Effective Pressure..

    NASCAR motors make more BMEP than those poooftie little girlyboy F1 motors..

    That is some kind of technology to make pushrod thing fill cylinders and burn better that beautiful multi-valve pent roof motors...

    I have never had any interest in going in ovals, less interest in ass-fault...
    But Circle track in general--not just NASCAR, but the whole field of circle track racing is the ONLY racing in America worth a god dame dime.
    Because its the only racing with any depth of competition..

    Remember that when the discussion swings around to US and Canadian rally, and worse, rally-cross. Its all BS and hype and lies.

    "Making the most of the increased technical support from Ford Performance, the Rally Mexico winning Fiesta made its way to Indianapolis in America earlier this month for some aerodynamic research and development at the Blue Ovalís state-of-the-art wind tunnel."
