SpeedSTR

The USAC SpeedSTR -- a self-starting Midget-Modified-Sprint Car hybrid with a four-cylinder Mopar motor -- first hit the track in 2008, with top drivers like Ray Evernham, Billy Pauch, Kenny Brightbill, Rick Eckert, Brian Montieth, and Frank Cozze among the field.

As the headline division at the ActionTrack USA in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, the USAC SpeedSTRs thrill the crowd every weekend.

A race car within the reach of the weekend warrior -- easy to maintain, safe for the competitor, with a rules package that ensured a level playing field putting the show back in the hands of the driver.

The USAC SpeedSTR is a more cost-effective way for drivers to race with a bigger, faster car.

If we figure in the cost of fatigue on parts, and include accidents which cause broken parts, the SpeedSTR will show greater value retention then the other comparable cars on the list.

Investment: Most race cars and parts lose value of about 50 to 60%. This means your $25,000 car will be worth a mere $10K-$12,000 by the end of only one race season. All-Spec. Division race cars, like the SpeedSTR only lose 20-30% of their value. This means your $17,000 car will still be worth $12,500 by the end of a full racing season.
