The raw acceleration and corner speed of the Sprint Car as it leans on that huge right rear tire coming out of the corner will leave you breathless.
  • L-Mods: L-Mod race cars are great little racecars. They are the easiest cars to drive, to control in a slide and surprisingly fast!
  • Late Model: There is nothing comparable to throwing a Late Model race car down into the dirt corner and coming back to the throttle as that left front tire starts lifting off the ground.
  • Big Block Modified: The Beasts of the East!  There’s something special about the center steer big block style modified, fans of these are passionate for good reason.
  • UMP Style Modified: If you’re looking for the car to move around a little more, and really feel the racetrack then this is the car for you.  The UMP Style Modified is the most popular race car in the world.
