Well technically if the Nascar car is traveling in the direction of the Earth rotation, it would be traveling at a speed of 1235 MPH, while on the other side of the track it would be going against the rotation of the Earth and be traveling a -835 MPH. Thus yielding a 200 MPH average lap at Talladega.

On another subject where does MSNBC consistently find such ignorant people?

Thank you Lockbox, I will be thinking of this when I am finishing off my 20th beer at the next race I attend. I will be especially happy to share this news with a guy that sits in front of me that I am convinced does not know mathematics or physics. He will be thrilled to learn of this information!

Well, hells bells, factor in the speed of earth’s orbit too.

From every liberal’s rectum comes a never ending supply of potential MSNBC anchors, producers and managers. Must be the veggies.
