A question for NASCAR fans
Tampa Bay Times ^ | 2/26/12 | GeorgiaDawg32

Posted on 02/26/2012 10:33:37 AM PST by GeorgiaDawg32

In an article in the Tampa Bay Times, the UAW made a point that 31 of 43 cars in the race today are made in Detroit (Their intent is to mock Mittens, which, on its face, isn't difficult to do).

Here is the quote: "The union says 31 of 43 cars racing tomorrow are made by one America's big three auto makers."

Now, as stupid as this statement is, my question is this. Let's assume for one minute these race cars were made in Detroit, what, exactly, would they look like? If they were made to look like the existing cars, what would be wrong with them, I mean, besides missing motor mounts, loose bolts etc.

Let your imaginations run.....

The Cup guys are using E15 now - (Ethanol 15%)- The Greenies are in NASCAR now

High performance motors LOVE alcohol. It's got the equivalent of higher octane in gasoline, so you can run higher compression, greater spark advance, and greater valve overlap. The only problem is that you have to burn more alcohol to get the same power you would with gasoline.

Formula One cars, as well as alcohol class dragsters run alcohol. But they burn A LOT of alcohol, and it's highly caustic, not a very "green fuel."

It’d be one thing if NASCAR went E15 because they wanted to or thought it was a good ‘racing’ idea - they put it in place because of their ‘Green Initiative” to “go green” crap.

This stuff is more expensive and requires adjustments to motors - the big-three divisions can afford this - the other lower classes will just have to pony-up and ‘go green’ when this stuff trickles down.

They want E15 across America, many older cars can’t handle it (many NASCAR fans drive older cars - it’s the demographic) So if Gordon and Stewart are going green it must be OK - time to buy another car....(NASCAR has become very lame these last few years - another feather in the cap)

Wouldn’t want to offend either one of the two black NASCAR fans.
