View inside a sprint car

My son took a pic inside our teams sprint car one night while we were in the pits. This is that view. If you look to the right you notice you see wing. Now on the dirt cars & depending on how a car is handling this wing can go down even more.

a couple pics of the feet peddles.
Anyone that hasn't ever looked in a sprint car. Drivers practically sit on their feet (no stretching out inside a sprint car LOL)

not only that. the fuel line runs through the cockpit too. that is where we would change out the pill, depending on air & weather. Sprint car drivers are nuts. :mrgreen:

you should be able to pull them off right here actually.

Right click, go to properties & copy & paste the url.

or if you are just trying to save the pics.
Right click the pic
& go to save picture as & you can save the pick to your cpu wherever you store your pics downloads whatever.

yeah was watching the wingless sprint cars at my home track one time. They were coming out of 4 when all the lights went out in turn one & two (at night) the whole corner went dark. Not a single one of them lifted. all of them barreled through there & kept going, until the flagman could realize what happened & put out the red flag. Just shook my head as I watched them throw their cars sideways into the dark corner & power out through turn two. Then I just laughed when I realized they didn't skip a beat, let up, nothing. BY god they were gonna race until someone stopped them LOL

Awesome pictures....thanks! I showed my husband the first picture, said "This is their view." He said, "Yeah, while the car is sitting still. And level. In a lighted area. And you think YOUR visibility sucks!"

Thanks for those pics, Schmoopy! It's hard to picture actually driving one of those things.

yeah. I think Sprint car drivers are born without the flight gene (from fight or flight)
