I did 1/4 mile and street racing for 10 years, switched to mud/sand racing for 6 years. Now I am back to building a trail rig, and putting the 540 together with my 8 year old boy that wants to go fast. That heartbeat will be planted into a mini tubbed 69 vette.

1/4 mile with the car and for slow driving, it's the 83 Toyota 4x4. Going to build a tube trans crossmember for the car so I can tuck the exhaust up closer to the body. Also probably going to do a roll cage for it eventually. Right at the point now where they haven't said anything to me, yet.

Just Kidding.
I like the 10.5 stuff myself, but mostly IHRA and NHRA drag racing. Starting to pick up quite a few round track racers lately though. I just go where the money is

I build dirt late models and dirt modifieds. I have also done some sports car cages, but not too many.
