Clay had a Mcgunegill Ford sealed engine and Bobby had a Chevy sealed engine. The guy with Mcgunegill was going around advertising his product heavily at the derby. 590hp for under or around 15k....

CRA allows them. I'm pretty sure the AA 400 this year had a sealed engine win it. Maybe that is the way to go instead of crates?

At the World Cup at I-70 Speedway in October, the winner Jeff Lane, had a Mcgunegill sealed engine and also broke the track record during qualifying. Landon Casill qualified 13th, finished 5th in a crate.

 

I got this off another site, seems no dominant engine

 

The following is a history of the racing engine wins and poles for the 35 CRA Super Series Sanctioned events from the 2004 and 2005 season to date. These numbers are based upon information provided to the series by teams competing in 2004 and in 2005. This information may not be 100% correct, it is strictly reference material that I wanted to make available to everyone.

 

9 to 1 motors have won 31 of the 35 races over the 2004 and 2005 season to date, the McGunegill Sealed Engine won the other 4. No other engine combination has won an event. The following is a list of who built the engines that have won the 35 events to date:

The following Engine companies are either an Award or Contingency Sponsor of the CRA Super Series for the 2005 season: Hamner Racing Engines, A.P. Racing Engines, Phil Harper Motorsports, Tesar Engineering Racing Engines

 

Got this QUOTE from this message board:

 

"Dick Poe - Crane Racing Motorsports is one of those financially challenged teams with only one car and one engine. Our race team traveled 1300 miles or 20 1/2 hours round trip in a Ford pick-up truck to Angola to race in the Hargus Mullins Firecracker 125 that only had 24 cars. Our team tried very hard last winter to land a BIG sponsor to buy a engine from either TEASAR at $40,000 or Hamner at $38,000. Because we have a very young driver with very little experience, we didn't get the sponsorship needed to buy one of those engines. Between two families on our race team, we scraped enough money to buy a McGunegill Engine Performance - sealed engine at $13,500. This year, so far, we have made every points race and gained a lot of experience. It's race teams like ours that don't have the BIG sponosor that need a economic engine to compete with a "GREAT" driver like Scott Hantz who has a great sponsor and team owner. Special thanks to RJ for having the foresite on engine packages to compete on a level playing ground and McGunegill Engine Performance for the economic sealed engine."

 

Do these engines really cost this much?

sounds like a cool option to me for the usra series. The only problem is if they are allowed. read somewhere that they are guaranteed for a year and can be purchased at 13500 a year or lease at 7995/ year.

Leasing a motor would prob be the way to go. After a season it would cost close to $7k or more to freshin up the motor. Do you know if you blow a motor under the lease if its replaced or do you have to lease another?..... Kinda like nascar, the smaller teams lease motors from the larger teams and if there motors blow they get another, but thats part of the lease agreement!!!!!!!!!!

usually in leasing if you blow it up you bought it.
