Nascar

Who out there thinks that a Nascar prepared M3 would dominate. Just throwing it out there cause Toyota races in the series. Im not a big Nascar fan, but was just wondering.

It wouldn't do any better or worse than any other NASCAR because the only difference in the cars is the stickers that give them their "identity". They are all spec tube frame cars covered in nearly identically shaped bodies.


But I too agree with the sentiments that I'd hate to see a BMW in NASCAR.

Pretty sure all the NASCAR cars are the exact same chassis/engine with just a dealer badge slapped on.

So a NASCAR M3 wouldn't be an M3 at all, but just another NASCAR stock car with a M3 badge.

Interesting Idea, seems I'm a NASCAR fan out of place though lol

As others have said though with the regulations the way they are now all the cars are the same, except for the way they get painted and stickers added.

I HATE NASCAR. Munich would melt if there was an M3 defiled so much.

FYI - NASCAR owns the Grand-Am road racing series, which has both tube-frame and production-based BMWs and other marques.

Your suggestion is akin to asking if putting an M badge on a 128i would make it "tare shit up".
