Tech Talk Sprint Car Support Bars

Add Article To List

Jason Martin, from Speedway Motors and Eagle Motorsports, discusses the rule changes on sprint car support bars. The new rule was created to increase safety by decreasing the span between the front and rear uprights. Luckily, we now offer bars that can easily be welded to your current chassis, to bring it up to date.

In order to help our customers update their chassis, we’ve developed a curved support bar that can be bought separately. The right-side bar must be welded between 15 and 20 inches from the front to rear upright. This product attaches around 17 inches, so it doesn’t get in the way of the driver. Once attached, the new bar creates more support and helps prevent collapsing in case of a crash.

As for the left side, current safety cages will not meet the new standards. If there is a safety cage attached, it will simply need to be removed and replaced with one that is the correct diameter. The new rule states that the support bars on the left side need to be attached above the shock-tower crossbar, to the 15-20-inch range. Our new product is easy and straightforward to weld, especially if the car doesn't have a safety cage already attached. All of these products can be found on our website, check them out!
