Joe Runge likes to race every single weekend. There are different levels of racing; spectator, late model and super late model. This is a regular full size car with the doors welded shut. The welding makes it more solid and less likely to fly apart. Contestants drive as fast they can without crashing in the qualifying rounds. The best times compete in the last race of the day.
Racers accumulate points during the season. The top five places get a small cash prize and bragging rights. That's Joes car up there. He wasn't racing seriously this past weekend but he drove well enough to qualify for pole position. Spending lots of time on the track and working with cars probably helped.
