Cool pictures, my wifes family been doing demos since the 50s, whats funny is you can tell different places have different rules, the car you built with the cage inside of it withe the bars on the frames, here you would cut all that off, your only alowed a bar on drivers door on outside, and thats pretty much it. And one thing here they do is after the show, they lift the winners car up in front of all the drivers and see if you welded anything on it, if you did you will be called a cheater, and second place wins as long as he didnt weld, but if they disqualify you, now you need to figure out how to get out the pits without being jumped for cheating. I know when i lived in indianapolis they had totaly different rules than our speedway have to, there you can move your radiator, the place my family runs you cant, the cars pretty much have to be the way they came. Great pictures, keep them coming. If you look in the reference pics for the trucks i posted a picture of a truck they ran, there rules for trucks are different for the cars they run, you still cant do welding except for a bar behind the seat that runs from one side to the other.
