So that's why they have restrictor plates


Recommended Posts

Just read this story

Rusty Wallace had a test session at Talladega with no restrictor plate. He hit speeds of 228 MPH and said he would expect that they would do laps of 238 if they worked on a setup. Now that's bloody fast. :ph34r: As much as I dislike plate racing it seems that it's here to stay.

Yeah Kev...I read that story earlier today at "That's Racin'.com". What really freaked me out is how he said that with a little more tweaking on the engine/aero package, they would be busting 235 mph!! That's almost as fast as Indy cars, with a car that weighs about 3 times as much!

I'd LOVE to see a 50 lap shootout of the top ten in the points there...unrestricted mind you...for the cup title! Whoever lives, WINS! :lol:

Of course they couldn't have fans in attendance due to the liability factor, but it would make one hell of a pay-per-view event that would eclipse EVERY pro rassling' PPV ever held! :o
