The Multi-Million Dollar Indy Crash
So guess how much Indycar needed to fix their crashed cars after Saturday’s race? $1.8 million! Saturday’s race had so much crash damage that only six of its 22 cars finished on the lead lap, according to Jalopnik. Some examples of the expensive parts on the Indycar’s include a $100,000 electrical system, $80,000 aero kit, $80,000 Xtrac gearbox and a lot of other expensive components.
Imagine what you could buy with $1.8 million? But with the extreme performance of these cars, it’s really not THAT surprising how much the damage was. What would you buy with $1.8 million?
Starting at 9am this Sunday, the Engine Power guys add over 250 horsepower to the Rislone Mustang. Plus a new sound out of the exhaust, and a gearbox to handle it all.
Then this 1963 Chevy C10 is Katie’s featured ride on PowerNation. She’ll be joined by one of the builders on the project, Nick Roberts from Nichols Paint & Fab. The owners gave the team a truck in decent shape and after a yearlong build this is what they did. Everything has been handmade from the inner fenders to the unique front end that held four headlights and now has just two with Harley Day Markers. It’s got a 5.3 liter making about 400 horsepower. Plus Marc drops by to talk about the Power Stop Ultimate Mustang he and Tommy are creating with drift champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. And this is a pony car you can enter to win on our website.
