Default A different kind of "Bad Boy"

Nance Frame Outlaw Sprint Car. Me at Colorado National Speedway sometime in the 70's - 377 CI made by boring and / stroking a Chevy 350 motor. It's Methanol burning through Hilborn Fuel Injection, Isky Roller Cam, Miller Tri-Drive Dry Sump, Oil / Power Steering / Water. Magneto. Straight Drive. There is no clutch, transmission, flywheel, battery, or starter. There is an in/out box that you push down to engage the driveshaft. You are then pushed off by a track tow truck or such. 108" wheelbase of 650 HP bad bad race car. The slang name for them among drivers is "Sh*tbox"



Picture was snapped just as I pitched it into turn three at Raceland in Denver, Co. The very next lap in exactly the same place on the track, when I pitched it, the rear axle pushed the wheel center out of the right rear rim. I went to sleep pretty quick after I looked up and saw dirt going by at about 100 MPH so I didn't get to count the flips and rolls - my wife said she lost count.

My Bad Boy Hemi is quite a bit tamer but still a thrill to step on every now and then.

Just reminiscing about "back in the day"

I love sprints! That's the best round track racing on dirt or asphalt that there is!
