I have an idea of what a sprint and midget actually are. A Sprint a 8 cylinder 410 CI engine and mediun sized car.  The Midget is the smallest 4-cylinder engines.  So what is the Silver Crown car; it's physically bigger than the Sprint but what a other specifics of the car different than the Sprint car and what kind of engines do they run?

The Silver Crown cars run a 355 (358) cu.in. engine with external self starting capability like an indy car. They are equipped with a clutch system like a Focus Midget. Wheelbase is longer than a spint car, and they run a larger tail tank for the extended distance races that are run in the division.
