Pavement Sprint Car

Anthony Simone's Record Setting Pavement Sprint Car. This Sprint Car was designed to be raced on paved tracks only. It is believed to be 1 of 2 cars built to these specifications by Grant King. It is extremely unique in design as it could be raced as either a non-wing Sprint Car or, with addition of wings, it could be raced in Super Modified or Unlimited races.
