My Day at NASCAR: XFINITY Series
My first to a NASCAR track was much different than I imagined. Courtesy of our friends at Xfinity. We got a behind the scenes look at a sport that has a growing diverse mix and meticulous nature than most would imagine. Enjoy the video below and watch our first experience at the Xfinity Series NASCAR race in the New Hampshire Speedway
The NASCAR XFINITY Series has established itself as a series where “Names are Made Here” and is like nothing else in major professional sports. The NASCAR XFINITY Series has proven to be an outstanding series for up-and-coming competitors who aspire to become NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers, with a number of today’s premier series stars having developed their skills in the series over the years. Many still race in the series, pulling “double-duty.” However, many series-only regulars also have chosen to spend their entire careers on the circuit due to its competitive nature and popularity.
NASCAR Overview – XFINITY Series Terms and Technology
There are three different national NASCAR series: Sprint Cup, XFINITY and Camping World Truck
The NASCAR XFINITY Series will travel to 23 different racetracks over 33 weekends in 2015, crowing a series champion at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 21.
Several past champions of the XFINITY series have gone on to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the most popular series in motorsports today. Among those drivers are Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Austin Dillon.
The motto “Names are Made Here” was fittingly created to describe the XFINITY Series due to the affinity with current and future stars of stock car racing.
XFINITY Series race cars are American-made, steel-bodied cars produced by Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford and Toyota. The cars are powered by 360-cubic inch V-8 engines and utilize Sunoco Green E15 fuel, a 15 percent ethanol blend using American-made ethanol from corn grown by America’s farmers. The cars maintain a minimum weight of 3,450 pounds without a driver.
