I actually heard a Nascar driver answer this one. Generally they do not, but there have been occasions.
There have been many drivers since Nascar started that have never won a race.
Yes, there have been several NASCAR races in recent years without 43 drivers. The Kentucky Speedway racetrack does not race 43 cars.
Jimmie Johnson's car has been put on a Dyno rig and has been to the research and developement factory. They can't find anything in his car that would allow him to cheat.
Hundreds of people have been hurt in nascar sanctioned races. Many people have also lost their lives. It is a dangerous sport.
There have been five drivers who won the Daytona 500 and the Nascar Cup Series championship in the same year. Lee Petty (1959) Richard Petty (1964, 1971, 1974, 1979) Cale Yarborough (1977) Jeff Gordon (1997) Jimmie Johnson (2006)
Bill Elliott has been racing in the Nascar Cup series since 1976. He still drives today, but has been on a limited schedule since 2004. Bill also drove in 43 Nationwide Series races, then known as the Busch Series and three Truck Series races.
It has been 157 races since Jeff Burton won in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series. His last win came on October 11, 2008.
A NASCAR race car is measured to be about 125-130 decibels. So they are pretty loud. I have been to 5 NASCAR races and the sound doesn't bother me. It is still pretty loud even if you are sitting 20 to 25 rows from the track.
Before they moved the fall Atlanta race it was postponed due to snow.
Richard Petty has 23 credits beginning with "Thunder in Dixie" (1964) through "Cars" (2006). Neil Bonnett, Dale Earnhardt, Harry Gant, Terry Labonte, Benny Parsons, Kyle Petty, Tim Richmond, Ricky Rudd, Cale Yarborough were all in "Stroker Ace" (1983). Jeff Gordon was in "Herbie Fully Loaded" (2005). Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon in "Herbie Fully Loaded" (2005) Darrell Waltrip was also in "Cars"
Jeff Gordon races for Hendrick Motorsports. He has been with Rick Hendrick since his first Nascar Cup Series race in 1992.
Yes, on numerous occassions. Caution-free races have happened over the years, most recently at Talladega in 2002.
It is been 8 years since Jeff Gordon has won a championship, so I say he is due for another one this year and also he has started the year off by winning a Gatorade Duel which is a good sign. Jimmie Johnson won the 2009 Sprint Cup championship. It was his fourth straight title.
In its history, Nascar's three major series have been held at over three dozen different tracks across the United States, Mexico and Canada.
There are flyovers by jets at NASCAR races because it was a way to catch the attention of the fans. It started in the 80's when Humpy Wheeler, founder at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Now Lowe's MS), thought of it as a way to entertain fans at the races. Wheeler has been known to do some crazy stunts to catch fan's attention like motocross jumps and fireworks. He has even accidentally set Charlotte Motor Speedway president… Read More
there have been 847 drivers in nascar
Since 2008. In 2008, Joey Logano started three races. He became a full time driver in 2009.
Rick Hendrick and Jeff Gordon have co-owned the #48 car since 2001. Jimmie Johnson has been their only driver.
Not in the Cup Series, but the Nascar Nationwide Series uses rain tires and windshield wipers for road course racing when necessary. The first time the series had to use them was on August 2, 2008 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
There are a few reasons for this (not neccessarily fact, but generally acknowledged within the NASCAR fanbase). Since 2004, the sport has experienced a significant drop in quality with new corporate management, new rules, and a new points system. With the inclusion of the Chase for the Sprint Cup points system, all drivers in the top 10 in points, along with two wild-card drivers, have their points reset to 2,000, with an additional 3 points… Read More
From what articles have been written, they don't really have to. They are in the middle of a hot day in a fire suit in a hot car so they sweat out whatever they drink. They have to drink a lot to keep hydrated because whatever they do drink by the time the next caution comes around (if it isn't within the next 10 laps) they have already sweated it out. At least that is… Read More
Sunoco has been the official fuel supplier for Nascar since 2004.
No. There has not been a woman winner in Nascar.
Kevin Harvick would have been the favorite to win the championship. He had over a 200 point lead at the time and has since had good finishes in the remaining ten races.
Bill Elliott has been racing in NASCAR since 1976.
Currently, there hasn't been a Nascar driver who admitted to being gay.
Kasey Khane became famous because he is a very skilled NASCAR driver and has won many races. Kasey Khane drives the number 5 car and has been racing for many years.
Atlanta back in the early 1990's(92 or 93 maybe) was postponed due to snow. I used to have a picture of the cars sitting in the garage with snow in front of the doors.
Over the years Ford, Dodge, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac have all pulled out at on time or another. I think that Chevy has always been there, they may have pulled out once in the mid to late sixties but I don't know that for sure. They are currently part of NASCAR. In fact, some of the biggest names in the sport today drive Chevys. Dale Earnhardt Jr, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Jeff Burton, Robby Gordon, Kevin… Read More

Nascar was founded on February 21, 1948, by Bill France Sr.
No, there has never been an instance where a car was struck by lightning during a NASCAR race.
It has been around for 60 years.
That would be 60 Cups won, starting with Red Byron in 1949 and ending with Jimmy Johnson winning the most recent in 2008, though many drivers have won multiple titles. Of the 60 seasons NASCAR has run, 28 different drivers have won at least one Cup.
2007 will mark the first year a foreign brand (Toyota) is competing in the NASCAR cup since Jaguar competed in a few races in the 1950s (and was the only foreign car make to win a NASCAR race-in 1954- until Toyota came along). However, the Toyota Camry will be the ONLY car model assembled in America to compete in NASCAR. All other car models represented on the track are from American companies, but assembled in… Read More
To some NASCAR drivers it is and to some it isn't. For decades the color green has been a superstition in NASCAR. Throughout the years, there have been drivers who adamantly refused to drive a green car.
Well, she hasn't been at any of the races for a few weeks. There's a rumor going around that marriage was involved, but it hasn't been confirmed or denied. Personally, I think they're taking a break or have broken up. Although, this also, has not been confirmed or denied.
Richard Petty has been a part of Nascar for over 50 years. His first race was on July 18, 1958.
