road course sprint car
To clarify exactly what our Road Course Sprint Car is we need to turn back about a decade and a half in USAC history. In the mid-2000's, USAC developed a new Silver Crown car (pictured top left) to bring the series to ovals 1.5 miles long and beyond, bridging the gap between USAC Silver Crown and NASCAR. This controversial car brought many firsts to Silver Crown, including side pod body work, symmetrical chassis, hand clutch, and two-speed transmission. Our chassis was the #28 car driven by Tim Barber in the 2006 and 2007 seasons.
The body work on our racecar comes from an attempt to revive the series in 2010 under the name "Gold Crown" (pictured bottom left). The new body was designed by IndyCar designer Bruce Ashmore. The Gold Crown Series was going to bring the cars to road courses as well as ovals but failed before a car ever made it to a road course due to lack of interest.
In addition, we added World of Outlaw dirt Sprint Car top and front wings and the rear pods off of Sebastian Bourdais 2016 IndyCar.
