GRUMPS The Towman Posted August 1, 2020 Share Posted August 1, 2020 I figured I would share a bit of my families pass-time with the other race fans on Tow Force. this is my oldest son and my 4 cyl super stock dirt race car. I was an avid, ..Ok,... Obsessed racer, car/race engine builder and fabricator for many years on both asphalt and dirt but retired from the sport 11 years ago when my wife and i got married, and I had just bought into the towing business I was working for at the time and now own. Needless to say, all the racing gear was sold. Car, trailer, truck, tools/parts. The whole lot. My oldest son ( step-son legally ) had been talking for years about trying his hand at racing and I always told him if by age 16, if he was passing all his classes with at least a B- and has stayed out of trouble that we would start building another car. He kept his end of the bargain and this is his first full season running the car we built together. Our car started life as a 97 Civic hatchback and was built into a race car from the ground up in our home shop. He has done really well and is learning very quickly as a driver, mechanic and welder/fabricator. He averages a top 5 finish every race and has 3 heat wins and 2 feature wins under his belt so far this season between two different race tracks. Together, We even built our trailer/hauler out of an old 16' truck body and the remnants of an old horse trailer. Our race teams motto is "Built, Not Bought". I hope you enjoy the pics. 2 Quote PROFESSIONAL TOWING & RECOVERY IS NOT JUST A JOB.. IT IS A LIFESTYLE Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
