Yea, i'm sure it's fun, and I wouldn't mind driving one for fun, but in no way is nascar a race car.. sorry, special olympics to me. Compare it to LeMans cars, DTM, Formula 1(that's in a class of its own) etc, I don't think they would compare.
but fun stuff non the less!
It depends. At Daytona (and other high-speed ovals), these cars are handicapped down to somewhere in the 450 hp range to keep speeds down, but at, say, Watkins Glen, they're running full out with around 800 HP or so, and DTM cars might have to run for cover.

I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but I make time to record and watch these cars run at the Glen each year.

They even sound different when compared to the sound levels on the big ovals.
