NASCAR (Winston Cup) Stock Car

This number 17 chassis/body combination was built specifically for racing on the short tracks, bull-rings, of the NASCAR circuit which includes int 1/2 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.
