March 2010

Although stock-appearing, running oval tracks at 200 mph the Cup car generates huge aerodynamic forces. Under the skin the Cup car is purpose-designed for racing albeit around some mandatory components that are strangely archaic. It all adds up to a fascinating engineering challenge. Published annually, Cup Race Technology explains in depth how some of the finest minds in motorsport rise to this fascinating and unique challenge.

  • Insight: NASCAR ENGINEERING TOOLS - What tools are available to COT engineers for off-track testing and development?
  • Anatomy: THE MWR TOYOTA - We tear down the Michael Waltrip Racing NASCAR Cup Car of Tomorrow
