I just purchased this same car this week, and it is now my prized possession. I've seen and had most cars that can be had, and no one will argue that this race car is one of the most scaled version of a 1 to 1 car of it's class or any car for that matter. purely my opinion. Here's an example photo of a real one with the winters rear.

Its called the whelen modified tour!

Different chassis compete troyer, new dyn etc
Santioned by Nascar!
The troyer chassis has more bars in it as you can see
The one you have is a new dyn chassis
