    Well welcome to Racing Junk and drag racing. It's a terrible addiction but not as bad as some :lol: . Well right now is a buyers market for a racecar. You can buy anywhere from turn key to a roller you can finish how you want it. It's a lot cheaper buying one that is done vs building one.

    Thank you for your service, Josh !
    Do a Google search for racing schools and you should find quite a few. A good school would be an excellent first step as you can get a great head start from the pros instead of 'learning and burning' on your own.
    X2 on buying turnkey cars.

    Agree but it not just a addition, once you get into it, it becomes an addiction, and i can assure your children will love it and it's the best family sport on the planet. i became addicted in 1956 and have never been sorry.

    ops: Thanks Zip, that's what I meant to say was addiction. I guess I didn't proof read it first. ops:
