Circle / Oval Track:
The most famous name of all circle track racing is NASCAR®. However, the circle track market involves many governing bodies of racing: Nationwide Series, Sprint Car and the Nextel Cup. This market includes any race car, truck or vehicle that competes by performing laps on a dirt or paved track.
This market includes personal water crafts, hydroplane racing, off shore performance, cruisers, and original equipment manufacturers.
Specialist / Enthusiast:
This market includes autocross, import and sports compact. Autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate one-at-a-time through a temporary course marked by traffic cones; rather than racing on a track with multiple other cars as found in circle track racing.
A drag race pits two vehicles against each other over a straight, measured distance from a standing start. A standard drag racing event involves several classes, each competing in their own single-elimination tournament of head-to-head races. There are many different organizations within the drag racing market, including IHRA, NHRA® and Sportsman.
Street Rod / Muscle:
These are the fast cars with large engines that show up at car shows through the country. Many of these cars are built for speed and show. Because of the aesthetically pleasing appearance and superior quality our products have we are a very popular choice in this market.
