    We have,

    The race car is travelling a constant 30.5 m/s around the turn. When the car is travelling around a turn, the centripetal force acts on it. The centripetal force is balanced by the force of friction between the car and the surface. Hence, frictional force is responsible for the centripetal acceleration.
