It's a limited class that allows a 602 sealed crate motor with a 5500RPM chip or basically stock SBC 350 with 6000RPM chip.
Both engines must run a 500CFM 2bbl Holley and same headers and have same weight limit.
We went with a crate 602 from Freisen because it has better heads and intake than allowed on "open" engine that is hard to overcome, even with the 500RPM difference and it has really good torque and HP in the range we need.
Running a 2000K stall circle track converter hooked to a GM Powerglide transmission with low gear and reverse only that I build myself for our cars.
Frame and suspension is GM metric frame used in Monte Carlos, etc.

We didn't get the wrap done in time for this race due to a computer crash so put the ole blue sides back on it for another round.

Here is the video of race from last weekend.

If y'all ever race close to Jefferson let me know and I will come watch. Try to make a few trips to Arkla-Tex speedway every year. The Bristol dirt racing was pretty good yesterday.

Dang tire got in her way. Glad she got right back in it, she can use this race as a leaning experience and build on it. Hope the car gets wrapped for the next race, it should help brighten her spirits. Tell her well done, from me.

Looks like a blast! How old is your grand daughter? What kind of power is that 602 making?
