Racing champion Will Power (great name) likes serenity while traveling at warp speed ... saying music in race cars is a TERRIBLE idea .. 'cause it could lead to disaster.
We got Will -- the 2014 IndyCar Series champ -- out in NYC and asked if there will ever be a time the guys get to jam out in their race cars during a competition.
That's when Will got serious ... saying he NEVER wants to see the day when radios are blasting in race cars ... 'cause it just ain't safe bumpin' Fetty Wap when you're going 200 mph.
He does tell us what he rides to in his civilian car ... and let's just say dude's got soul.
Peep the clip.
