NASCAR could cross-promote and try to get spectators from the National Paint Drying Championships to come to the races.

The race cars would probably make some gear whine and tire skittering noises in the turns.

Not sure it would be louder than the fans snoring in the stands.

They use canned laughter on TV when nothing is funny, maybe they can can engine noises and people will be kept interested. It is interesting though, if the cars win but are silent, who cares?

The Formula E cars aren't silent. They sound like the higher power electric RC cars.

The drop dead gorgeous BMW i8 plays engine sounds through the radio.
The new Lexus RX450h makes engine sounds in reverse as a warning for pedestrians.

I dunno don't the majority of people just go to NASCAR races or almost any major league sporting event just to get plastered anyways, plus electric cars can still crash, a lot of people just watch for the crashes.

Pit crews will be limited to 120V, making pit stops about 8 hours; linguistically the term "pit stop" will be lost to the annals of time, much like "dialing the phone"

Nascar popularity keeps declining every year due to the popular drivers retiring and doing other things. Its so bad now, they are careful when moving the camera to not show the empty bleachers. smirk2

A fuse would be the modern version of a restricter plate.

I can't see it happen though. Can you imagine the result of wrecks with lithium battery fires? No to mention the hazardous waste considerations of all those wrecks?
