"Very badly" is their answer to your question. Sure got to be dedicated in that cold.

I guess you don't have to worry about cold air induction at this track.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. As well, at which point should they start thinking of engine block heaters and a "warm" air intake.

Have raced circle track (NASCAR Modifieds) a few times in sub freezing weather....takes a few extra green flag laps to get the tires hot but once you get some heat in the tires it's business as usual...The hardest part is figuring out the starting air pressure in the tires to keep the stagger correct as the tires heat up......The engines love the cold air and make some really good power.......as opposed to an 85° 90% humidity...Saturday night.....

True but the idea here is it a frozen lake. How much heat can you really get into them, especially in sub-zero Wisconsin?
