1930 Ford Sprint Car Special news, pictures, specifications, and information
Ever since the creation of the automobile the design and mechanical components have continued to evolve and improve. Fuel sources, engine sizes, suspension, weight distribution, aerodynamics, braking, and more have all been experimented with and undergone rigorous testing and development. It is only suitable that at the local racing circuit, eager individuals were continuing this development in efforts of securing themselves a podium finish. To compete in races during the early years of the automobile, all that was required was a vehicle that could compete. Those who had more money often had more resources at their disposal and could take their vehicle to the next level in terms of power and performance.

At the time, the Ford Flathead V8 was an excellent resource to utilize. Parts were in abundance, power was plentiful, and it was fairly reliable. To fuel the fire, Fred Frame appeared in a 1934 Ford ad declaring 'I picked a Ford V8 for 1933… it brought me home in front. It takes a lot of automobile to average 80.22 miles per hour for 200 miles over a course like that.' Alone, this may not have meant much, but coming from the winner of the 1932 Indianapolis 500, it was a solid endorsement.

1989 Indianapolis 500: Sideways to Victory
The tension in the final moments would be so great it would take everything within Shelley Unser to keep from breaking into a shaking fit. Two laps from the end of the race, traffic would dramatically slow Al Unser Jr.'s pace allowing Emerson Fittipaldi to close right up behind his rear wing. The two would pull side-by-side as they powered their way toward turn three. Still side-by-side heading into the turn, there would be less than 3.75 miles to go to victory, a first for either driver. But th...[Read more...]
