Best Answer

Most NASCAR race teams build their own engines. Some smaller teams lease engines from a team that builds engines. Building your own engines can allow a team to customize their car to their drivers style and abilities. But teams do not have free reign when it comes to building their engines. NASCAR has strict rules and guidlines that the teams must follow when it comes to the engines.
