This particular car was extremely light weight for the era as it was built using light weight tubing much like WW II aircraft construction. It also used the very light weight Drake engine. This combination was extremely successful on the countless small tracks across the country and especially on the west coast. Not only was their corner speed superior but many of the top drivers of the era felt the manner in which the Drake engine cylindes fired, that the result was better traction.
The Sprint Car design, plus engine combination, proved very successful as Tom Hunt had multiple Trophy Dash and Main Event wins plus he was CRA's "Most Improved" driver in 1974.
Thank you to Reba Warren for her donation of this historical race car in memory of her late husband, Dale Warren.
