We know yâallâs lazy stereotypes of NASCAR. But hereâs proof that some NASCAR drivers really do know how to corner in both directions. And incinerate a set of slicks in theÂ process.
You have king of the oval Joey Logano to thank, who had his group of grease monkeys at Factory Five build him an insane 1935 drift truck in just four days. Using a fabricated chassis, they dropped an $80k, 800bhp dry-sumped Ford NASCAR cup engine into the front,Â hooked it up to a six-speed sequential âbox, thenÂ fitted new steering arms and suspension to gift armfuls ofÂ lock.
They then clad the bedâs sides, tailgate and cab with composite panels feature stainless steel skins. But they left off the fenders. And the tailgate floor. All to allow the rear-mounted radiator to breath and whoever has to fill the sucker up with access to the fuel system. But, as Joey hates sweat patches, they also fitted power windows and airÂ conditioning.
96 hours after starting the build, Joey was doingÂ a very skiddy, very smokey session around Charlotte Motor Speedway â evenÂ leaving some fat, rubbery lines around his matching Heritage Ford GT. Now, who thinks all NASCAR drivers should have a crack at this? Itâd be one hell of a championship, wouldnâtÂ it?
