CHR Cars builds Retro cars that win races as well as providing support and assistance. 
 
The goal of CHR Cars is to provide an alternative to expensive Retro builders while still providing cars capable of winning and lasting through a race. Cap has been racing since 2003, and when purchased cars weren't enough for him, the CHR Cars brand was unknowingly started.
 
CHR Cars compete all over the country, with wins in ORS, BRS, Penn-Ohio, Retro East™, and SCCRA, and at the Sano and the R4.
 
You can order anything from a bare chassis to a complete RTR car or anything in between. 
 
Contact me via PM, shoot me an email to cap@henrymotorsports.com, or call me at (419) 217-9413, and I'll be happy to assist you.
 
I can offer raceways a slight discount also.

It's the best Stock Car chassis I have #4... It could easily be hammer driven in every lane.

Thanks, Cap, for the awesome Stock Car. Are you ready to sell the sister...?

I'll be on vacation from Sept 26 til Nov 23 in Australia and won't be building any chassis during that time. My cell number will also be inactive during that time, but anyone is still welcome to PM me or shoot me an email to cap@henrymotorsports.com if you need any kind of help or info.  :)
