Photos by Allan Mason.
Correspondent Allan Mason, covered this Mini NASCAR Series, and files this report from Orlando Speedworld, near Orlando, Florida. It’s for the kids, but you can be sure the parents are right there making sure everything is in order. Same as Little League Baseball, only faster. This is so much fun it needs to be a Cruiser Sighting. Enjoy.

Mini Racecar Series | Orlando Speedworld

Mini Cup racing is an awesome—and much more affordable—way to get into the racing scene. Mini Cup cars are half-scale stock cars; therefore, they are substantially cheaper than a full-sized racecar. You can expect to pay about $8,000 to $9,000 for a new Mini Cup car or $2,000 to $4,000 for a used car. A go kart frame or chassis is manufactured from steel tubing. It’s glued to the axles, and it holds the body and motor. Nascar is a high performance Go Kart that’s great for kids and adults alike. Options Include: 6.5hp electric start, torque converter, disc brakes, horn, custom paint and graphics. We can add virtually any graphics, corporate name or logo. MADE-IN-USA

TOP FUEL | Dragsters

Drag racing was born in the dry lake beds in the California deserts. In the 1930s as engines got better and drivers got braver, speeds began topping 100mph. But it wasn’t until after World War II that a bunch of kids with cars, hanging out with nowhere in particular to go, turned into something more serious.

From the 1970s onwards drag racing began to take its modern shape. This was the era of sponsorship with big companies throwing their support behind teams. Volunteer crew members were suddenly given wages, trailers were turned into mobile workshops, and even the NHRA found a sponsor allowing it to offer bigger prize money.

TOP FUEL | Crashes

As the decade turned drag racing began to get organized. The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) was founded in 1951 by Wally Parks, and within the decade two classes of competition had developed ‘Unmodified Stock’ and ‘Top Eliminator’.

However, it wasn’t until one of the most serious accidents in early drag racing history in the 1970s that the fundamentals of car design changed. When Don Garlit’s front-motored dragster suffered a transmission explosion which split his car in half and cut off his right foot, he vowed to invent a car with the engine in the back capable of being a winner. He succeeded and within two years all car engines sat behind the drivers.

 

Vintage Racing | Nostalgia

Some say the first auto race occurred directly after the second car rolled off the assembly line. Other than nostalgic blathering, here’s a few photos from day’s past, dare I say decades. It’s great to see the reason for more safety devices, and the need for speed.
