Unlike most racing series, the goal of the Prius Cup isn't to turn in fast lap times. Instead, the cars circle the track in agonizing fashion as they try and use as little fuel as possible. Once in the pits, though, the action picks up considerably as the teams compete to get their hybrids back on the track in as little time as possible. Sounds exciting! Well, not really, but we don't know of many other racing events where the winner scores nearly 70 mpg over the 20-lap event.
