PURE STOCKS

RACE DIVISIONS:

360 SPRINT CARS

Sprint cars have a very high power-to-weight ratio, making speeds in excess of 140 miles per hour (230 km/h) possible on some tracks. Power outputs of 900 horsepower (670 kW) to 1,100 horsepower (820 kW) are commonplace for these machines, which typically are powered by a naturally aspirated V8 with an engine displacement of 410 cubic inches (6.7L). A lower cost but still popular class of sprint cars uses 360 cubic inch (5.9L) engines that produce approximately 700 horsepower (520 kW). The safety record of sprint car racing in recent years has been greatly improved by the use of roll cages to protect the drivers. (Source: Wikipedia.org)

LIMITED LATE MODELS

Late model race cars are the highest class of local stock car racing vehicles at many race tracks in the United States and Canada. Some regional and lower national-level series race in late models. Varieties of late models (ranked from highest vehicle performance to lowest) include Super Late Models, Late Models, and Limited Late Models. Some series require crate motors to be utilized by racecars under their sanction. Vehicles raced on dirt are significantly different from vehicles raced on asphalt. (Source: Wikipedia.org)

In North American auto racing, particularly with regard to NASCAR, a short track is a racetrack of less than one mile (1.6 km) in length. Short track racing, often associated with fairgrounds and similar venues, is where stock car racing first got off the back roads and into organized and regulated competition. Many traditional fans and purists still see short track racing as the “real” NASCAR, because the lower speeds make “paint swapping,” where the bodies of the cars actually rub against one another, practical without a very high likelihood of serious accidents.
