Video: So Cal Sprint Car Hits The Quarter-Mile Drag Strip
When it comes to dirt, sprint cars are not only one of the most popular powerhouses on the track, but they are also one of the fastest. But when a sprint owner has an idea and way too much time on his hands, the dirt car will quickly become a beast of a different nature. A few weeks ago, we brought you a story about a sprint car that became a street legal sensation. That same sprinter is back, but this time it’s back on the track.
The Southern California sprint car is in fact a combination of a few things…
- As our previous article stated, this sprint car is 100% street legal with head and tail lights, a license plate, and rearview mirrors.
- Although a little squirrly at first with a natural left turn instinct, this car has the capability to race down the quarter-mile drag strip in blistering time.
- With a few minor changes, including the removal of the transmission, this road-worthy sprint car will be found turning laps around Ventura, Ca.’s 1/5-mile dirt track.
As far as hybrid cars go, screw the Prius, This sprint car takes the cake!
