Sprint cars are high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks. Typically, they are powered by a naturally aspirated, methanol injected over-head valve V8 with an engine displacement of cubic inches 6. Sprint cars do not utilize a transmission, they have an in or out gear box and quick change rear differentials for occasional gearing changes.
If you are in either category, then your need can be met by a very real race car called an Outlaw Sprint Kart. As the first manufacturer to mount cages on karts some things were improved upon by trial and error. What started out as a rigid cage bolted directly to the lower frame soon changed to what is now called the floating cage.
