I crew for a 360 sprint team located in Kansas. This year several of the sanctioning bodies are going to race winged and wingless events in Kansas and, perhaps, the region. Check out and

TORA is known for their "topless" outlaw late-model dirt cars but are forming a sprint series supposedly using rules similar to the NCRA 360 division.

Sprint cars are some of the most basic recers in their construction. A simple chassis with an engine bolted to a motor plate, direct-drive using no transmission, a quick-change rear. These cars are easily able to adapt to many different track sizes and track conditions. Four cylinder sprint classes are gaining in popularity too. They can use many of the older, but still race-worthy full size sprinters but adapted to the smaller engines. A four cylinder sprint car may be a cheaper alternative to a midget.

I have a super secret sprint story for ya! A track champion this year in Pa. I talked to him about his setup, he has a chassis guy on the payroll. This chassis guy actually grinds off the shock numbers and names them, Sammy Slicktrack, Tommy Tacky, etc.. He's the only one who knows the setup. Struck me as pretty strange, and funny.

we used to put duct tape over the shock numbers so no one could see them
