Cars can get up to 200 mph "Rules are ment to be broken" Tony Stewart throwing his helment In qualifying, typically the top 35 cars in the points will automatically be awarded a spot for a race, no matter where they end up qualifying. But since there's only 43 spots per race to fill, drivers below that line have to fight it out to get a spot. This order is also used to determine pit stalls in a race, with the pole sitter, or the driver with the fastest time, receiving the first pick. If a team makes changes to a car or replaces it with a backup during the time between qualifying and the race, that team is usually automatically sent to the back of the race pack at the start of the race. Pit stops during races need to involve some safety. During a green flag run, drivers are required to slow to a certain speed limit before entering the pit, usually around 25-28mph. Crew members must all wear fire-resistant suits like the drivers. The gas man must wear a fire-resistant apron when refuelling. Outside tires can also no longer be free rolled due to safety concerns, and must be hand-guided back over the wall. Green Flag:
Signifies the start or restart of the race.
The caution flag.

Red Flag With Cross:

Blue Flag With Yellow Stripe: Flown to warn drivers with slower cars that faster cars are approaching.
Blue Flag: Only used for road courses, this flag indicates a local caution on the track. Yellow and Red Flag: Only used for road courses, this flag indicates that there is debris on the track. Flags Febuary 22nd 2012 at Daytona

NASCAR drivers are sponsored by huge corporations and the cars are decorated in decals and colors to represent those sponsors. This helps distinguish one car from the next on the track.
