Best thing to do is get a pit pass and talk to us drivers some night and we can give you some good ideas on where and how to start. Best car to find is a neon. They are the easiest to set up and best for the track.

That is a good age to start and he and you will have a lot of fun. I think it is a great class for anyone who wants to have fun at a low cost. Here is a link to an article about building a car and what they are all about.
The whole goal of the class is affordable fun with safety a priority.

Jim Leasure is the track owner and his e mail is spartanspeedway@gmail.com

I agree that you need to go to the track on any Friday night, buy a pit pass, and talk to the drivers and see the cars up close. The drivers were all in your position before they started and are happy to talk about what the class is all about.

The best way to get started in the pony Stock class would be to buy a car already built and ready to race. Once you have the car , you can adjust the seat to fit the driver. It would be best to get someone that knows what to look for to help you out when your looking for a car, and then when you buy one have the person help you out going over the car to make sure its ready to go. I can help you out if needed. Just let me know. Good Luck
John
