The crew is getting ready to warm the motor at Double X Speedway in California, MO in 2005. Sprint cars run on alcohol and the motor must be warmed up to achieve peak performance.
Tony and the 9c turning laps on the tight ¼ mile track at Double X Speedway in California, MO. On a typical night, 20 to 25 gallons of fuel will be used.
The Eagle Chassis frame for the 2006 car before it entered the paint booth at Paint-Ko (Larry McCown – owner/operator). It gives you a good view of the driver’s compartment.
This shot of the frame for the 2006 car shows the down tubes on the roll cage viewed from the front of the car.
All of the triangular geometry in the frame construction can be seen here. This adds the strength that is necessary for the rigors that the car must endure on the track.
Another shot of the frame showing the triangular geometry. This one was taken right before it was painted by Larry McCown at Paint-Ko in Sedalia, MO.
The bottom side of the frame shows that there isn’t much there. This makes the car lighter and faster on the track.
Notice the size of the right rear tire and compare it to size of the left rear in the next picture.
The left rear tire is smaller than the one that is used on the right. This is called ‘stagger’ and helps the car and driver negotiate through the turns. Stagger varies from track to track.
A shot of the 9c from 2005. This was the first year that Tony carried the ACCKC logo on the 9c and took it dirt trackin’.
The 2006 car will look something like this when it is completed.
