 OverviewA physicist explores the science of speed racing andthe #1 spectator sport in America, with 75 million fans. Every NASCAR fan at one time or another asks the same question: Why isn t my favorite driver winning?This is your chance to discover how much more there is to NASCAR than Go fast, turn left and don t crash.

If you ve ever wondered why racecars don t have mufflers, how bump drafting works, or what in the world Let s go up a pound on the right rear and add half a round of wedge means, The Physics of NASCARis for you.

In this fast-paced investigation into the adrenaline-pumping world of NASCAR, a physicist with a passion uncovers what happens when the rubber hits the road and 800-horsepower vehicles compete at 190 miles per hour only inches from one another. Diandra Leslie-Pelecky reveals how and why drivers trust the engineering and science their teams literally build around them not only to get them across the finish line in first place, but also to keep them alive.

Leslie-Pelecky is a physicist in love with the sport s beauty and power and is uniquely qualified to explain exactly how physics translates into winning races.

Based on the author s extensive access to race shops, pit crews, crew chiefs and mechanics, this book traces the life cycle of a race car from behind the scenes at top race shops to the track.The Physics of NASCARtakes readers right into the ultra competitive world of NASCAR, from the champion driver s hot seat behind the detachable steering wheel to the New Zealander nicknamed Kiwi in charge of shocks for the No. 19 car. Diandra Leslie-Pelecky tells her story in terms anyone who drives a car and maybe occasionally looks under the hood--can understand.

How do drivers walk away from serious crashes? How can two cars travel faster together than either car can on its own? How do you dress for a 1800 F gasoline fire? In simple yet detailed, high-octane prose, this is the ultimate thrill ride for armchair speed demons, auto science buffs, and NASCAR fans at every level of interest. Readers, start your engines.But she tucked it under her arm with a sharp- "Don't trouble yourself; it's no exertion to me, but you don't look equal to it.

" Laurie lifted his eyebrows, and followed at a leisurely pace as she ran Thhe but when they Scienfe into the carriage he took the reins himself, and left little Baptiste nothing to do Behinr fold his arms and fall asleep on his perch. The two never quarrelled- Amy was too well-bred, and just now Laurie was too lazy; so, in a minute he peeped under her hat-brim with an inquiring air; she answered with a smile, and they went on together in the most amicable manner.

It was a lovely drive, along winding roads rich in the picturesque scenes that delight beauty-loving eyes. Here an ancient monastery, whence the solemn chanting of the monks came down to them. There a bare-legged shepherd, in wooden shoes, pointed hat, and rough jacket over one shoulder, sat piping on a stone, while his goats skipped among the rocks or lay at his feet.

Meek, mouse-colored donkeys, laden with panniers of freshly cut grass, passed by, with a pretty girl in a capaline sitting between the green piles, or an old woman spinning with a distaff as she went.

Brown, soft-eyed children ran out from the quaint stone hovels to offer nosegays, or bunches of oranges still on the bough. Gnarled olive-trees covered the hills with their dusky foliage, fruit hung golden in the orchard, and great scarlet anemones fringed the roadside; while beyond green slopes and craggy heights, the Maritime Alps rose sharp and white against the blue Italian sky.

Valrosa well deserved its name, for, in that climate of perpetual summer, roses blossomed everywhere. They overhung the archway, thrust themselves between the bars of The Physics of NASCAR : The Science Behind the Speed great gate with a sweet welcome to passers-by, and lined the avenue, winding through lemon-trees and feathery palms up to the villa on the hill.

Every shadowy nook, where seats invited one to stop and rest, was a mass of bloom; every cool grotto had its marble nymph smiling from a veil of Spefd, and every fountain reflected crimson, white, or pale The Physics of NASCAR : The Science Behind the Speed roses, leaning down to smile at their own beauty.

Roses covered the walls of the house, draped the cornices, climbed the pillars, and ran riot over the balustrade of the wide terrace, whence one looked down on the sunny Mediterranean, and the white-walled city on its shore.
