New- My 1998 Kia Sportage had been doing this for a while. I feared pulling out anywhere cause acceleration dragged for so long. It sometimes died if I started it up and took off right away. I replaced the oxygen sensor on my manifold yesterday and seems to have fixed it.

My 2002 was suffering from the same situation. I changed the spark plugs. It should be done every 30,000 miles anyway, so if you are due then try it. You will not be out of pocket for trying something necessary.

Can any car accelerate quicker than a NASCAR car?

No, most street cars cannot accelerate faster than a nascar car, but some can. A typical nascar car can accelerate from 0-60 in about 4.0 seconds. Some street cars have acceleration times that are pretty close or even beat the times of nascar cars. For example a 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. Additionally if a street car is modified with a turbocharger and cold air intake it could very well pass the time of a nascar. However NOT ALL cars can accelerate more quickly than a nascar car. For example a 2014 Honda Odyssey LX minivan accelerates from 0-60 in 7.7 seconds.
