During competition, a circle track or NASCAR racecar will typically have glowing red brake rotors (much higher than the 334*F shown here). If your brakes encounter high temperatures during a driving episode, be sure to drive the car slowly for a mile or two prior to parking, to allow brake temperatures to cool and stabilize.
