The Legacy Car
The Allison Legacy car is a three-quarter sized replica of a Winston
Cup car and is powered by a four cylinder MAZDA B-2200 truck engine that produces
approximately 125 horsepower. The cars use the standard MAZDA five-speed transmission.
The cars weigh about 1,400 pounds dry but must weigh a minimum of 1,675 pounds
with driver to race. The series is a “SPEC” series designed to minimize your
racing costs and place the emphasis on the driver instead of the equipment.
Rules and National technical inspections are strictly enforced to limit alterations
to the basic car. The engines are sealed and can only be rebuilt by Mark Smith/Tri-Star
Motorsports, Winston Cup Engine Builder, where they are resealed before shipment
back to the competitor. Almost all parts are spec and cannot be modified for
competition. The Allison Legacy Race Car is a turn key, ready to race, and precision
engineered vehicle with a fiberglass body a Mazda B-2200 truck engine on a full
tubular chassis. This vehicle is CompCar of NC, Inc. sanctioned. The price for
the basic car is currently $18,800. “The Legacy Cars are excellent equipment
for the beginner to get his or her first exposure to racing,” said David Pearson,
winner of 105 NASCAR Winston Cup races. “They are well designed and professionally
constructed cars that will give the drivers the same feel and experience they
would get from a bigger and more powerful car.”
The Allison Legacy Touring Series offers a professional to intermediate racing program. This unique and innovative program attracts drivers, new and old, with or without experience, and has proven to be a valuable stepping stone for drivers looking to further a racing career.
“It’s important to offer a program for everybody that wants to be involved,” explained Kenny Allison. “We are growing as a series and as a promotional outlet. Drivers are able to get valuable exposure and experience with our program, which can contribute to furthering a racing career. At the same time, people who want to get into racing just for fun can maintain and operate the car in this series on a minimal budget, and with little or no experience.”
There are approximately 20 Touring Races each year. Each is 50 laps or more in duration. There are approximately 150 regional events in different areas around the country. The Touring Series visits regional programs, promoting greater support for regional growth. These races provide fans with a more seasoned and dynamic experience in presentation.
There is a Touring Series and a growing number of Regional Series for competitors to choose from. Touring series races are in Virginia, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Pennsylvania.
Regional races are held in the Great Lakes, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas (3), Tennessee, and New England (New Hampshire, Maine and in Canada). All races are sanctioned by CompCar of NC, Inc. and a rigid set of regulations are in place and apply to all regions under the direction of area regional dealers and directors. Points systems are in place in each region. Each region determines their own purse structure.
Approximate cost per race to campaign an Allison Legacy car is $100.00 per race. This includes tires, fuel, oil and most of the other normal maintenance items associated with a race car. Once the car is set up to a driver’s particular style or liking it becomes very low maintenance and can be easily serviced by an individual with normal mechanical skills.
