The Baby Grand Canada Northwest Scaled Late Model is a 2/3 scale replica of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Car. Powered by a 1300cc Yamaha engine with a 5 speed sequential transmission, these cars can achieve speeds over 150 miles per hour! These Scaled Late Models are spec cars, meaning all cars are manufactured the same way and must maintain factory specifications. This creates a close and exciting series that depends on drivers skill. With the same size roll cage piping as full size late models, plus all the same adjustment areas, race parts and even a quick change rear end, these cars are fast and safe for all competitors ages 14 and up. Competing door to door throughout Western Canada and Northern United States, the travelling North West Scaled Late Model race series has been a popular show at every track they have visited since we began in 1997. Drivers must adapt to many different track configurations throughout the season which creates an exciting and entertaining race at every venue.
