I know a fella that is a security guard at the Kansas Speedway and he had some whoppers to tell the group that was willing to listen. The guard claims he got to take a ride in a new NASCAR race car that was brought down form Charlotte to be tested. Said that he was in the car and it topped out at 202 mph. He went on to tell the group that NASCAR engines are torn down only when they have at least 15,000 miles on the engine. Said he was offered a job back east to do nothing but, rebuild racing engines for $85,000 a year. Last but, not least the guard claimed that NASCAR is going to fuel injection and carbs are out either soon or next year. For those who might know, aren't these engines torn down after each race or just trashed? I have heard both of these. Oh, by the way this guard used to be a former mechanic for my employer which does not say much.
