Composite body cars coming to Madison
The ARCA Racing Series will have a new look when it comes to town for the Montgomery Ward Father’s Day 200. The ARCA Racing Series composite body car will be making its Madison debut. The composite body cars debuted on short tracks in 2015; however, it’s been since 2014 that the ARCA tour has raced at Madison. The composite cars are now eligible everywhere on tour with the exception of Talladega and Daytona. The composite bodies, which greatly reduce the possibility of debris, are a lightweight, state-of-the-art laminate blend, less than 135 pounds. Designed without compromising rigidity, the 12 separate flame retardant panels are flange-fitted together for easy installation in the shop or at track.
