a minimum i think

3. all the cars no matter the brand use the same engine and trans. so that
way no one whines over someone having more power

4. nascars is just dumb luck driving. you basicly drive like your on the freeway till someone takes you out by screwing up (how you can mess up on a track that has only 3 turns is beyond me.)

ih and by the way a used porsche for 60k can lap the nastard drivers at under half the cost, with the ac on and the stereo cranked, real driving, my ass.

if you wanna see fun spec racing go to a spec miata event. theres nothing like a bunch of guys in flyweight cars all trying to enter the same corner at the same time. its freakin hilarious. or run in a spec focus cup. ist the same thin but with hatches and sedans, lol.
All of this couldnt be farther from the truith

(all cars have the same aero shape)
All cars have to fit a templet but this is in no way meaning there running the same bodies , they spen 100`s of Hrs in there wind tunnels shaping the bodt to go through the wind faster and they may look the same but there not ,

(all cars have the same tires)

( all the cars no matter the brand use the same engine and trans)
This couldnt be further from the truith Ford uses Ford , Chevy uses Chevy , Dodge uses Dodge , Toy uses Toy . and they are allowed to build there own engine to what THEY think the rules say and they dont all make the same HP

(nascars is just dumb luck driving.)
If you feel that way only tells me you have never been on a track of any kind at over 150MPH let alone in a croud. I race dirt track and have been on Lowes Motor Speedway at over 180 with me driving and there is nothing dumb luck about it. It takes balls and skill to run 200+ with 25+ other drivers all around you all wanting to get to the front

This is dumb luck "theres nothing like a bunch of guys in flyweight cars all trying to enter the same corner at the same time." it takes no skill to take everyone out in the first turn of a race because they all want to be up front

Oh and your "used porsche for 60k can lap the nastard drivers " Would be lapped 2 times in a 10 lap race
