This # 17 chassis/body combination was built specifically for racing on the short tracks, bull-rings, of the NASCAR circuit which includes the 1/2 mile and 1 mile tracks. (Notice the extreme camber in the right rear axle/wheel, the large air duct openings in the front of the car for maximum brake cooling and the large cutouts in the fenders, both front and rear to help prevent fenders being pushed into the tires as short track racing tends to be a bit more physical.)
A specific long term history was not available for this particular car/chassis on a per race basis but we do know that the car first raced in Martinsville, Virginia in April 1993 where it finished 4th
It is estimated that this car had an approximate 5 year life span on the grueling NASCAR short tracks and was probably relegated to a back-up position at that time.
