Announcing that Gross Racing has partnered up with Swift Springs for both of our open wheel modifieds.
Swift has been winding springs since 1924 and in the racing end of it since 1997. They say this:

All Springs are not created equal, the diameters and spring rates can be similar, but the process
of manufacturing springs plays a huge factor in how they will perform. Through our extensive
knowledge in performance springs, we have perfected the process of manufacturing springs
that will outperform our competitors.
Finished 3rd in points with Pat Vareika in the 117 car at Volusia Speedway
and 5th in points with Paul Shead in 7S car at Volusia Speedway in 2017.
A couple disastrous nights but over all a good and lots of fun season.

Our 117 car is for sale.  $4900 for complete car less engine, transmission and seat.
7 car for sale $2900 less engine, transmission, rear end and seat
