The Car

There are a few differences between the Grainger No. 31 Chevrolet and most cars you see on the road. The race car Ryan Newman drives has no doors (he gets in through the side window). The headlights and brake lights are decals. There's no speedometer (Ryan relies on a digital tachometer) and the team uses math to know when to fuel up instead of a gas gauge. But, the 358 cu. in. V8 engine in the RCR Chevrolet generates 850 hp at 9,000 RPM. We're sure you'll agree, reaching more than 200 MPH on race day makes up for any features this race car might be missing.
