The Cars: 

You’ll be able to select from one of the following types of cars*:

  • Late Models: Get behind the wheel  of a dirt track Late Model with over 400hp at your control.  The Late Models are set up to be easy for someone with no experience to drive well and you’ll appreciate the grip their huge tires give you.
  • Sprint Cars: The raw acceleration and cornering speed of the Sprint Cars as they lean on their big right rear tire coming out of the corner will leave you awestruck. With a Maxim chassis, a Chevy small block pushing out about 375hp, and the car weighing approximately 1200lbs, the power to weight ratio is amazing. The direct drive powertrain is the perfect combination of drivability and performance to provide an amazing experience for novice drivers.
  • L-Mods: Fun to drive, easy to control in a slide and surprisingly fast! Slide it in the right gear, put the pedal down and you’ll experience some unforgettable dirt racing.
  • Big Block Modified: The Beasts of the East!  There’s something special about the center steer big block style modified. For such a big, intimidating race car Big Block Modifieds are surprisingly easy to drive. 
  • IMCA – UMP Style Modifieds: 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 IMCA style mod is the most popular race car in the world. It is an entry level dirt car and a good car for a driver with little to no experience starting out dirt racing.
