Race Numbers

Spirit_Of_64 Wednesday, 1/11/2023

Jump to last page

I've noticed that builders will have a preferred number when entering a race that calls for them.  Some I know why, some I don't, and some I can guess why from context clues.  So, do you have a preferred number, and why?  For example, I chose #64 for the same reason its part of my team name, because the cars are 1/64 scale(sometimes).  I did not put a whole lot of thought into my naming conventions(I randomly thought of Spirit of '76, and hey presto, Spirit Of '64 is go!).  Just for fun, I'll also make a list of numbers I do know that I'll update as I learn more.

I like 43, as I am a mopar and petty fan
My first real dirt track stock car was 04Q

It was funny,
but not family friendly as the announcer is yelling over the PA system

My numbers are both chosen for my love of Mini's

#53 is because it's the internal code for the first gen 2006 Mini Cooper S - so I drive an R53...so I chose #53

#37 was chosen because of Mini's Rally heritage...do a google image search and #37 is the # you will see the most...

  • interesting — dr_dodge
  • Paddy Hopkirk! I just saw this post, & I'm a huge fan of MINI's as well! Over the years, my family has owned 7. Unfortunately, we don't currently have one. I'm a huge fan of the 2nd Gen - especially the R56 & R55. We've done many of the MINI events locally, regionally, & nationally here in the US. Very cool to run into another fan! — Rabid_Badger_Racing

I personally like the number 24 because my birthday is on April 24th, so I guess it's my favorite number.

0, 00, or 000, though that last options rarely available.

the 0utsiders is literally spelled with a Zero.

kinda a whole thing.

I had some of these decals layin around, not doing nuthin, just sittin there. :P

In general, I choose #3 because of Dale Earnhardt, plus it's a single-digit number and easy to put on a car. Barring that, I will choose Lightning McQueen's number (95) or Chick Hick's number (86). The last is funnier to me, because to be "86'd" means getting your butt tossed out of the race.

My 1:1 cars were number 80 after my dad.

my dad followed after his older brother who was 79. Honestly I should have went 81 but I didn't lol

  • Awesome. I just picked up a '93 Mustang LX last summer. I also used to hand-letter/number/paint my cousins and bro-in-law's dirt track cars years ago. One of my paintjobs got my cousin a front row start in a 100-car enduro race. He won. :) — FeralPatrick

14, 21, and 42 because it is the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  Also 51, 53 herbie the love bug, and 55 because of Tom Waits' Ol' 55.  I like 69 too because I was born in '69, but we all know who has that number locked down, and he races it well.
