Subject: Tire innovation for NASCAR
Dear people of Fox NASCAR,
Half of the NASCAR broadcast on Fox is about tires. "he's got clean tires." "he needs new tires" "look at his right side tire!" Here's a tire innovation for NASCAR...
The right side tire circumference is 87.375 inches. If the tires are not changed on a car, it would make 362,471 revolutions on a 500-mile track. That's alotta wear. How about they go to a bigger tire. Say... a monster truck tire.
The world's largest monster truck has a tire circumference of 377 inches. That's just 84,033 revolutions. That's over four times savings on revolutions.
Here's some images of what this would look like.
Can you imagine the pit crew trying to change four of those suckers?
MONSTER NASCAR! MONSTER NASCAR!
