Watch a NASCAR Cup car on the streets of London

It's not every day Londoners see a NASCAR stock racer driving through city streets. But that's exactly what they recently witnessed.

Orchestrated by the same people behind the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival, a publicity stunt brought a Sprint Cup-spec Chevy SS through the British capital, just to see how people would react.

This is the Dow-sponsored No. 3 car that Austin Dillon is driving this year for Richard Childress Racing, but we doubt many of the onlookers could tell – or cared. What they saw is 725 horsepower of pushrod American muscle rumbling through London, a fish-and-chips-out-of-water scenario if we've ever seen one.
