Since the first season of NASCAR Whelen Euro Series under official NASCAR sanctioning in 2012, 35 different drivers and 19 different teams have scored at least 1 Fastest Lap in the EuroNASCAR 2 class. Getting the Fastest Lap is crucial in this series because barring a few exceptions, those who scored the Fastest Lap in Race 1 will earn Pole Position in Race 2. Listed below are the drivers and the teams that have scored a Fastest Lap in the EuroNASCAR 2 class of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.

Please note that for the Race 2 of the 2012 Spa 200, there was no data found regarding who scored the Fastest Lap in the race. Both Racing Reference and Driver Database doesn’t have a record on who scored the Fastest Lap on that race, therefore the driver and team that scored the Fastest Lap in that race is currently listed as “Unknown” in the list.

The list shown below are correct as of the end of the 2020 EuroNASCAR Finals at Circuit Ricardo Tormo. Drivers shown in “bold” are drivers that have competed in at least 1 EuroNASCAR 2 race over the course of the 2020 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season.
