Sprint cars are high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks. Sprint car racing is popular in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Sprint cars have a very high power-to-weight ratio, making speeds in excess of 140 miles per hour (230 km/h) possible on some tracks. Power outputs of 900 horsepower up to 1,100 horsepower is commonplace for these machines, which typically are powered by a naturally aspirated V8 with a 410 cubic inch engine displacement. A lower cost but still popular class of sprint cars uses 360 cubic inch engines and produce approximately 700 horsepower.
Watch Gittin get down with an insane backwards entry.
