It depends on the cars.

Rally about 120 (that's on a dirt road so it's fast).

Nascar about 180-200.

F1 about 200-220.

Why won't the NASCAR lap of 212 mph be broken?

Because now they use restrictor plates at Daytona and Talladega,they can't go as fast.


What is the restrictor plate on a racecar?

A restrictor plate is simply a plate with a set size hole in it that the engine has to suck all its air through. It's a basic and simple way to limit how much power an engine can make, to keep the competition fair and the vehicles from getting dangerously fast.


In the last two televised nascar races there were fiery crashes just a few laps from the end are the cars just going too fast for the tracks and how can nascar keep the cars at a safer speed?

Restrictor Plates.


How fast did Rusty Wallace go at Talladega?

Rusty Wallace ran a fast lap at Talladega with the restrictor plate taken off. He had an average speed of 221.00 mph. After the lap, he told Nascar officials that there was no way the drivers could drive that fast in a pack of 43 cars.


With all the fiery crashes are the cars just going too fast for the tracks and how can NASCAR keep the race at a safer speed and still maintain the excitement?

For carbureted vehicles NASCAR requires the use of a restrictor plate that goes under the carburetor and restricts the amount of fuel and air entering the engine. On fuel injected vehicles, they use an electronic engine control unit that restricts the engine to a preset horsepower.


How fast do NASCAR drivers drive while under caution?

The fastest lap in Nascar was an average speed of 212.809. This record was set by Bill Elliott in a qualifying lap at Talladega Superspeedway in 1987. This was before restrictor plates were in use.


How fast do NASCAR cars go?

On super speedways, they can reach speeds of 200 miles per hour. They are slower on short tracks. Today, the fastest they can go is 202 mph. Currently with the restrictor plate carbs, they can go about 190, at tracks like Talladega and Daytona. Which they are tracks where you run wide open all the way around and is too fast for safety. Other tracks such as California (Auto Club Speedway) and Atlanta Motor Speedway they run about 200-205 mph. A Nascar car can usually get up to about 200 miles per hour on a large track. However though, there is a thing called a restrictor plate that makes a Nascar car slow down. They use restrictor plates strictly as a safety matter so the car does not get thrown into the air because of all the air. So I guess it really depends on what kind of car, what kind of track and what the rules are on the race track.
