The aerodynamic forces on NASCAR Grand National Race Cars in “drafting” and passing situations are defined, utilizing steady-state wind tunnel test results. The phenomena occurring in these situations are discussed in relation to their effects on handling maneuvers and improved performance. Graphic presentation of data obtained for lift, drag, and yaw supplement the discussion.
