NASCAR Sprint Cup races are made up of 43 snarling, V8 beasts. But one day, the V8 could go extinct and NASCAR could go electric. This is what it would be like if Tesla took over NASCAR. Simon and Garfunkel would approve.
Last Wednesday 43 Teslas took to Richmond International Raceway for some good old fashioned tire squealing and electricity burning fun.
This is the first time we've seen Teslas on a NASCAR track (or at least the first time I've seen Teslas on a track), and while I think the car is pretty damn amazing, I'm not digging the sound of nothing going in circles.
But this is part of the future of cars, and that means that track days are going to be very different in the not too distant future. We'll need to get used to it.
