Saw it this year and last year at the Jefferson 500 (actually that's where the first picture looks like it is from, or at least Summit Point).

IC, so in that class of racing the "springs" must be of original application, however "motion control" is not, specified.

For those who don't follow, look real close at that last picture of the rear suspension. There is a traditional 4-link with watts linkage as well as "Original equipment" leaf springs. The leaf springs use a little link to suspend the vehicle. It even seems there is a dummy axle to keep everything in line. Pretty creative.

Yep, that's just like they would have built the car in 1972!
