Modifed stock cars have been around a long time. This form of dirt track racing really took off after World War II. As it's name implies, they are more than a stock car. They have been highly modified, often the front sheet metal is removed or altered, the rear suspension is changed, a full roll cage is added as well as larger tires with increased horsepower. All modified stock cars have to adhere to very stringent rules and they all utilize factory frames and much of the suspension components must remain factory type components. The engines are held to strict rules as to the size of the engine, the compression ratio, factory block casting numbers and types of heads and carburetors that are allowed to be used. 

Today’s full blown modified race cars are highly refined machines with sophisticated suspension systems and specialty tires. This highly competitive and wildly popular form of oval track racing is further refined into many sub-classes that are designed for the entry level driver or for those who wish to start out in a simpler, less expensive car as they learn the ropes of Modified racing. 

What is Sport Mod Racing

Some of the common names for these more entry level classes are Sport Mod, B-Mod, IMCA Sport Mod, Crate Mod, Crate Modified,  Limited Modified, and Midwest Modified. Sport Mod parts differences in comparison to a regular Modifieds are necessary to keep costs down. Generally speaking, Crate Modified parts simplify and limit the horsepower of the engines, make the suspensions a little simpler and limit the tire sizes somewhat to help new drivers get acclimated to their cars and their tracks as well as allowing them to keep a little more money in their pocket due to these car’s less expensive parts and lower lap speeds. Don’t be fooled though, these entry level cars are plenty fast and they provide a great adrenaline rush of competition.

It might seem confusing, but because dirt track racing is a nationwide phenomena, the rules regarding Sport Mod parts can vary from area to area as well as track to track. In an attempt to keep things a bit more organized, there are several major Crate Modified sanctioning bodies throughout the country. These sanctioning bodies publish and enforce Crate Mod parts rules for these cars. Organizations include IMCA, WISSOTA and UMP, just to name a few. The most prevalent B-Mod dirt car parts sanctioning body is currently IMCA, or International Motor Contest Association.

Crate Mod Engines

There’s a fairly new term out there for a type of Modified, and it’s called the Crate Modified. Back in the day, Modified racers were getting very creative with their engine programs. The rules were a little more loose and many cars had very, very expensive engines powering them. To help even the playing field, a new class of crate motor powered cars were implemented. These cars get to race alongside cars that use more traditional, owner-built engines. The Crate Mod or Crate Modified was born. We carry a full line of both the 602 and 604 GM crate racing engine. Ours our tested and rebuild right in our own racing engine machine shop. For those who are still building their own engines, we’ve got all the sanctioning body approved engine parts for those too. Things like IMCA and Wissota approved intake manifolds, cylinder heads, and carburetors. We even carry our own in house line up of crate engines if you don’t want to use the GM supplied units.

Differences Between B-Mod Dirt Car Parts

Limited Modifed race car parts are similar to the other budget-friendly Modified race cars. They are restricted to things like GM-style rear axles, instead of those from Ford. However, they use GM Metric frames similar to the other Modified racing cars.
