My first career was building, selling, and racing 1/4 mile dirt track cars. When my friend Trish decided to take up the sport, i jumped at the chance to build one with her. I'm going to document the process on video, I hope you enjoy learning about racing technology. There are many online resources for learning welding and the other skills involved, and I urge you to seek them out, and post the best ones in the comments.

Let's go racing!

    Amazing video. You really go into detail about adding in that bar. Like you stated you really need to tie it in or else it's just going to damage stuff when it gets into an accident. I'm working on designing some sub-frame connectors for my car and some other frame stiffening stuff. Oh, and plumber's crack FTW =D

    Finally! I love going to dirt track races all up and down the east coast, and have always wanted to find out how to start in the business. Thank you very much!

    Absolutely no chance I'll be doing this, but the video is utterly fascinating to watch. I look forward to the next episode.
