Nope, it's the opposite - it's a blessing. Carb based units use a fuel pump that pulls fuel from the tank under low pressure (vacuum). When it runs out it has to suck the fuel from the tank up into the engine. Think of sucking a thick milkshake - not fun.
Fuel Injection (FI) has a pump mounted in the tank or right at the fuel tank. It pushes the fuel to the engine under high pressure, as FI units inject fuel under high pressure.
Fuel runs out... fill the tank... hit the ignition switch, which powers up the fuel pump, injectors and ignition... wait 2-4 seconds for the pump to do it's job... and then hit the starter switch... VVRRRROOOOOOMMMMMMMM.
But yes. Brian France is killing Nascar - soon to be the WWE of racing!
