Makes sense...build the truck, hire a two man team to run it for pennies because of the cool factor. No real racer will do this if they have a clue how this deal REALLY works. Jet Car= Shitty road life, crappy motels and truck sleepers, lot lizzards etc. Drag racings version of a carney. No thanks...Only a fan with no cule would do this. All while the owners stay home and do the bookings and take a cut. Oh and the truck...it was built with leftover spare parts from past projects and wouldn't pass a chassis cert on a bet if it had to.
Have fun for a year of circle track, airshows, demo derbys and county fairs.
