Innovators, Not Imitators, in All  Worlds of  Racing

Carr Racing Chassis is the leader  in fabrication, design and innovation. That’s because Joe Carr races hard and wins. Across the USA, SCCA Mechanic of the Year Joe Carr has seen and done it all:  from road courses to oval tracks, and drag strips in between,  Joe’s been there to race and to learn how to make his customer’s cars faster. “It’s a never-ending process,” Joe is proud to explain. “For three decades we’ve never stopped testing and developing our products to keep our customers in front no matter where the race.”

With roots in SCCA, Can-AM, and Trans-AM road racing,  Joe is a leader in technology and a meticulous in restoring  classic race cars.  Today, he maintains two Formula 1 cars, and  services  2.Liter Can Am and Can-Am racers. Vintage race cars are also a specialty of Carr Racing Chassis -whether it be a vintage Crosley 9S,  Austin-Healey “Bug Eye” Sprite, or a B Production T-bird  (all below) the Carr has influenced them all.

Check out this vintage Lotus Elan! (right) After a major crash at Leguna Seca, owner John Baird brought it to us for repair. We fabricated parts and rebuilt the back of the car, the trunk, and, the front and rear suspensions. We made a set of headers, and then repaired the body and flaring. With the new paint  scheme we applied, it’s nearly ready for the race track!” - Joe Carr

This Week’s Work

At Carr Racing Chassis:

    The Carr Boys are ready to go!

    Before COVID-19, we were able to button up some racing at Buttonwillow. Hopefully, we will be racing again soon!

    This week we painted the formerly yellow Carr No. 12 with our traditional red paint scheme. This 1996 beauty is “E” Production.

    The black “Double Zero”  ‘66 MG Midget is being finished up for customer Lee Fleming, who sold his old “00” to Texan Perry Simons. The car will be in the “F” production class.
