Most racers are kidding their selves in the first place if they go HOPING too win.For me its for the fun of the sport and the comradery with my friends.As far as a $10k hauler.Why not, as long as it's safe and does the job.

Just out of high school, My pick-up truck was full of tires along with spare parts and I used a to have a simple removable tow-bar and narrow towing tires. Needed to remove the driveshaft for going there and coming back.
NOW ... those 18 to 30 year olds don't want to do whatever it takes to go racing ... if they don't have a dually pick-up and an enclosed trailer they don't even try. My money was all in the racecar... Wink

Back in the early 70's,hardly anyone used anything other than a Tow Bar. If you seen a Carhauler coming in ,he usually had a BaddAss S/S,M/P,or Gasser on it and he WAS there to take home the Cash $$$$$$$$

Rick, my car was that record holding SS/KA "68 Camaro Convertible; as I said ALL my money was tied up in the car.
My longest "tow bar" trip was to Reading, Penn from Detroit through the mountains on the PA turnpike.
Anything like an open trailer was borrowed and was just not necessary to own if it took funds away from going fast. Idea

Could you see a young guy doing that today...? Never happen.
