Approximate cost per race to campaign an
Allison Legacy car is minimal compared to other
professional racing series. Tires, fuel, oil and most of the other
normal maintenance items associated with a race
car plus travel expense sets the cost per race. Once the car is set up to a driver’s
particular style or liking it becomes very low
maintenance and can be easily serviced by an
individual with normal mechanical skills.
