Yes, nascar race cars have a reverse. They are standard 4-speed Manual transmissions, in a not-so-standard car.
They are anything but standard four-speeds. Everyone uses Jerico transmissions, which are made for ease of changing the gear cluster. If you want a different gear ratio in the car, you open the little door in the floorplan, open the top of the transmission, and do your work. Very simple and direct. They also definitely have reverse.
About $5.7 million per race

They are either built by highly modifying a regular car (these are called "GT" class cars or "Grand Touring"), building them from scratch from a pre-built chassis or also highly modifying a street legal car (these kinds of race cars are usually owned by people who build them in their own shop to either drag race or take them to track day events), or like how Funny Cars or NASCARS (these are called "Stock Cars") are built where almost all of them look the same on the outside but underneath are parts that the company decides to put in (Chassis, engine, transmission, steering, suspension, brakes, etc.) as long as its within regulations.
Most race cars are only seat the driver, the only 2 seater race cars have a navigator like rally cars, and dessert race cars.
The race cars are transported from track to track by the race teams haulers.
Their are several cars that don't qualify for a race because they where to slow. Only 43 race cars can be allowed to race so its not over crowded on the race track.
