NASCAR is a sport most viewed work in terms of viewership in the United States. In fact, professional football is the only sport in the United States, have more viewers than NASCAR. Internationally, NASCAR races are broadcast in over 150 countries. NASCAR holds 17 of the top 20 attended sporting events one day in the world and claims 75 million fans that purchase more than 3 billion and annual sales of licensed products. Fortune 500 companies that have sponsored NASCAR more than any other motor sport, although it has been in decline since the early 2000s.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Daytona Beach became known as the place to set world speed records on land, supplanting France and Belgium as the preferred location for the speed record with eight consecutive world records set between 1927 and 1935. After an historic race between Ransom Olds and Alexander Winton in 1903, the beach became a mecca for racing enthusiasts and 15 records were set on what became the Daytona Beach road course between 1905 and 1935. At the time the Bonneville Salt Flats became the premier destination for the pursuit of speed records in 1936, Daytona Beach became synonymous with fast cars. Drivers raced on a 4.1-mile (6.6 km) course, consisting of 1.5 to 2-mile (3.2 km) stretch of beach as a straightaway, and a narrow paved road by the sea, A1A, than the other. Two tight, deep ruts and sand covered towers at each end connected the two straight lines.
Stock car racing in the United States has its origins in smuggling during Prohibition, when drivers ran contraband whiskey made primarily in the Appalachian region in the United States. Bootleggers needed to distribute their illicit products, and they typically used small fast vehicles to better evade the police. Many drivers change their cars for speed and handling and increased cargo capacity, and some of them came to love the frantic pace of driving on winding mountain roads.
The repeal of Prohibition in 1933 dried up some of their business, but by then Southerners had developed a taste for moon and a number of drivers continued, “runnin ‘shine, this time to evade” the tax “trying to impose their operations. The cars continued to improve, and by the late 1940s, races with these cars were running for pride and profit. These races have been fun People in the U.S. rural south, and are more closely associated with the Wilkes County region of North Carolina. Most races in those days were of modified cars. Vehicles, streets have been lightened and strengthened.
NASCAR replaces carburetors injection times during the 2012 season of Sprint Cup. But the limiter plates used to slow the cars at Daytona and Talladega will remain for the foreseeable future.
Freescale Semiconductor and McLaren Electronic Systems have introduced Friday at a news conference at Daytona International Speedway that companies chosen to produce the new fuel injectors. Freescale processors will provide for engine control units from McLaren. McLaren also provides teams Izod IndyCar and Formula One.
Thanks to the electronic fuel injection allows a precise amount of fuel depending on the amount of air flowing into the engine (carburetor is less effective because it establishes an optimum amount of fuel at a specific point during one engine cycle).
Peter van Manen, managing director of McLaren Electronic Systems, said fuel injection would give NASCAR more in their arsenal “to tinker with the restrictor plates are used to keep vehicles below 200 km / h and more long, fastest tracks on the circuit.
But the vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said plates have been “the easiest way and most economical” to reduce speed. Currently located on the carburetor to reduce the airflow to the engine (and thus steal cars a few hundred horses), Pemberton said the plate would go on a throttle body (“Part of the air flow through is basically the same”) in the fuel injection system.
“We knocked out several hundred horses, and this is the best way to settle it now,” said Pemberton. “We have a few things to work on next year to possibly change it.”
