For the love of racing 
Most drivers at the Myrtle Beach Speedway track in South Carolina compete in the Whelen All-American Series of NASCAR - many rungs below the highest level of the sport. The majority have day-jobs and are racing for sheer enjoyment. But paying for their passion is becoming harder, as more sophisticated technology seeps down to the lower levels of NASCAR, driving up the price of maintaining a car.
