[Leslie-Pelecky], a physicist and devoted NASCAR fan, explains in clear, simple terms what goes into making a NASCAR vehicle, from design to development to construction to test-driving. Along the way, she introduces us to some of the sport s key players and teaches us (painlessly) more about the physics of speed racing than we ever thought we needed to know. NASCAR fans will flock to this book. Booklist
Having caught, by chance, the broadcast of a multi-car NASCAR crash on television, Nebraska University physics professor Leslie-Pelecky found herself compelled to understand why it happened Along the way, the nanotech specialist becomes an unlikely racing fan; this fun physics primer should give any NASCAR aficionado a similar appreciation for science. Publishers Weekly

"Language sports fans can understand... You'll be as entertained as you are informed." Sporting News
"The people she encounters are fascinating... Even if you are not a NASCAR fan, read The Physics of NASCAR." Physics Today"

Reseña del editor:

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A 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.
