We know it's the time of the year for many racers to figure out what they'd like to do in 2021. Knowing that and already talking to a few potential race teams. I'd like to give some information on
Rapid Tire Service

USAC East Coast Sprint Cars

racing to anyone that might be thinking of joining the Series in the future.

This is Bill Gallagher's
Rider Racing Engines

360 that was built new in 2009 as a Mike Heffner engine and used by Daryn Pittman, Tim Buckwalter, Eddie Strada, Brady Bacon, Briggs Danner & myself to win races. It has 680hp on Rider's dyno. It has it's original block, crank, heads and injection. With a wing it can go 25 races or a normal 360 season of races before needing rebuilt. Rider tells us wingless we can easily run 2 seasons or 45-50 races on it. A rebuild is usually $7,500-$8,500.

We recommend getting an engine that was built by a reputable engine builder and take good care of it. Our regular engine maintenance consists of running really good oil. We run
High Performance Lubricants

and we run 5 races between oil changes. Thats right, 5 races! Weekly we run the valves and clean the nozzles.

If the car comes home in one piece. We do the bars, clean the ball, change gears, change shocks, clean the air cleaner along with any other maintenance needed.

Our teams
Triple X Race Components

frame is a standard 88-40 that had multiple wins on it with Greg Hodnett and now with Brady & Briggs. The hood will be available soon from Triple X. No special wingless frame is needed to be consistent or to win races.

Feel free to ask any questions to me or to any of our racers. I'm sure any of them would be willing to answer any questions you have.

Thank you,

Curt & Rapid Tire USAC-EC
