Yes James, that's Alex racing hardbodies!
Nice race report as usual Keith. Am I seeing things correctly?!? Alex Freund in hardbody racing? Go Alex!!
Last month, "Bones" Romero raced hardbodies. Other wing racers have been racing hardbodies from time to time as well.
The Talladega Nights modified 36D race at this year's Hardbody Nats at BP (last weekend in Sept) will have the wing racers battling
the D3 hardbody regulars again. We also "might have" a new King track hardbody class which uses a Pro-Slot X-12 motor (anglewinder, sidewinder or inline chassis). Although the body type hasn't been finalized yet, this new class "might" use 80's or newer style NASCAR bodies. Stay tuned as this new Talladega Nights class will be a hoot.
