Think about it. Most of the big factories in Detroit have hard core racing programs. Imagine what would happen if one of those factories applied all that modern technology to something like a Midget engine.
Sprint cars are high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks. Typically, they are powered by a naturally aspirated, methanol injected over-head valve V8 with an engine displacement of cubic inches 6. Sprint cars do not utilize a transmission, they have an in or out gear box and quick change rear differentials for occasional gearing changes.
