Among the dragsters and Indy racing cars, there are two series that supply most of the versions for these castings:
- Dragsters USA series. There are 11 castings in the series (each with many releases) and they feature various drag racing teams. 5 of the castings are fast. The less competitive cars are either too narrow and/or too light to be fast. All of these dragsters feature the "Racer's Edge Speed Wheels". These wheels feature a thin raised "lip" on the the inside of the wheel which means there is less tire surface touching the track. This supposedly creates less friction. These wheels were later used in other models.
- The Indy Race Car Winners. There were 8 replicas of different Indy winners produced spanning the years of 1969 through 1992. 5 of them are fast. I have several of each car. Note that a corresponding pace car was also released in a two pack with the Indy Race winner. See blister above. Those cars are also very fast.
See the home page for more details on testing methods, speed tiers, weight classifications, etc.
In the table above, the "Nbr" represents the JL casting number. Each distinct casting has its own number which appears on the chassis of the car.
