Fayetteville, Ga. - United Speed Alliance Racing President Gene Cox has announced approval for a new body for use in the Hooters ProCup Series during the 2001 season. USAR and Carolina Kit Car have joined forces to offer a new body to help keep costs down and labor to a minimum.
USAR features full-sized, steel bodied cars that have given the Hooters ProCup Series a reputation as one of the most exciting short track series in the country. One of the concerns from many current competitors has been the upkeep and repair costs of the bodies. USAR and Carolina Kit Cars have developed a complete body kit that has everything needed to install the body in a matter of hours and in the confines of your own shop, while keeping costs minimal.
"While the use of the new body is not mandatory, we feel like the use of this kit will not only minimize the cost associated with maintenance of a steel-bodied car, but also save a tremendous amount of labor required to repair the bodies," said Cox. "USAR has been working closely with Carolina Kit Cars over the last year to create this product which we believe will only improve our series."
The base of the system is a new composite greenhouse that allows simple installation of the body. Windows will be pre-fitted and the body panels will be pre-fabricated. It should be noted that this optional body conforms to all USAR templates presently used by USAR officials maintaining the overall appearance associated with steel bodied cars.
"USAR is committed to working with our competitors, sponsors, fans and officials to keep the Hooters ProCup Series at the forefront of competitive, entertaining and affordable short track racing," added Cox.
