What It Feels Like Behind The Wheel by Richard Corliss The article was out of a recent magazine regarding what it is like to drive a race car in the Nascar circuit The article goes further to explain what happens on a routine race day for a known race car driver by the name of Derrike Cope He attempts to give the readers a picture of what it is like to make a living making left turns in heavy traffic at dangerously high speeds sometimes in excess of 200 mph Cope states There is nothing like sitting on a projectile going 190 mph on the brink of going out of control Its the sheer rush touching every emotion you have On a typical race day if you can call it that Cope gets out of bed around 7 packs his gear and attends a sponsor hospitality event In the big leagues sponsors money determines the quality of the team and the equipment The average cost for one year of racing is about six million dollars The pit crew bundles the racer into fire-retardant suits shoes and gloves before mummifying him with five tight seat belts For the first time of the day Derrike is alone listening to the rapid thumping of his heart beat inside of his ears feeling the throttle of the ultra-sophisticated car beneath his thin soled racing shoes The motors start and the cars begin to follow the pace car in a single file line Once the cars reach the green flag the pace car pulls into the pit and the other cars rev to 190 mph You are sitting right on top of the exhaust There are vibrations all through your rear end up through your hands on the wheel Strategy both competitive and financial demands that you be near the front of the pack The sponsors equate TV time with money Exposure is what its all about
