Nick Joanides did not qualify for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Memphis Motorsports Park, ending his debut in the series before it started.
He had the 47th fastest qualifying time out of 50 drivers. The top 43 drivers started the race.
In response to a comment about NASCAR engines using carburetors, my point was that the engines in NASCAR are so behind in technologically, carburetors are still in use. Ford is touting a number of improvements made to the engines, but there are some things that are so beyond the times they are laughable.
Other motor sports series use fuel-injected engines without any competition complications. NASCAR would do itself a favor by bringing their engines and technologically more up to date.
