Racing on short oval dirt tracks, usually 1/10th to 1/8th mile, in a series of 6 and 8 lap races, they accelerate like a Formula 1 car and for a split second they can hit speeds well in excess of 80 mpg on these tiny tracks.
They are extremely popular in Australia, New Zealand, most of Europe as well as here in the US. However, their "heyday" in the US was probably in the 1970´s through the mid 1980's.
