How much do race cars cost?

Does anyone know? I was reading an article about the different race circuits (NASCAR, Indy, F-1 etc) and how much the cars cost. I totally forgot the figures but I do remember being shocked at how much F-1 cars cost compared to NASCAR...they were around 14 million dollars compared to a couple hundred thousand tops for NASCAR. Even when compared to similar circuits like CART and Indy the F-1 cars were still millions and millions more expensive

Indy teams cost more to run than NASCAR teams because soap & shampoo cost good money.

although almost everything is upgraded, nascars are based off of production cars, so you dont have to fabricate and machene everything from scratch. I think thats why open wheel racing costs so much more.

You do realize name is the only thing a NASCAR and it's production line counterpart share in common, right?
