An oil that is truly designed for NASCAR racetrack usage is, in the real World, inappropriate for street car usage.

The conditions are so different, e.g. a NASCAR engine uses the oil for no more than a few hours and therefore long-term corrosion inhibitors are irrelevant, while for a street vehicle this is an important factor.

This idea that because something is "racing" it is great for street usage s nothing but a marketing gimmick, targeted at people who don't know better.
