With over 30 years of innovative offerings for the class, Five Star Race Car Bodies is bringing things to yet another level with the North American Sportsman Body.  The body offers a new, stylish, and modern look, easy installation, enhanced durability, and the quality you’ve come to expect from Five Star.

The most noticeable upgrade of the North American Sportsman is the inclusion of our modern-look noses. These high-impact plastic noses show more brand identity, are easier to install and replace in two pieces instead of four, and are ultra-durable. They are available in Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang.

The body features a two-piece (front and rear) greenhouse, similar to most Five Star bodies allowing for easier mounting and quick and easy replacement of fenders, doors, and quarter panels.

Like its predecessor - the S2 Sportsman body - the North American Sportsman is based off a metric-style chassis with a wheel base up to 108”.  This chassis is a common basis for many Sportsman divisions across the United States and Canada as well as the basis for the NASCAR Peak Mexico Series.

Racers will love how easy the North American Sportsman Body is to install and maintain.  Many of the design aspects of this body are taken from that of the ABC NextGen Body, which was built with ease of installation in mind. Racers will find this to be the quickest, simplest Sportsman body they have ever installed.

Maintenance on this body will be another major upgrade racers will appreciate.  The fenders and quarter panels are made of our proprietary high-impact plastic. These panels are designed to maintain their shape integrity and rigidity, but also stand up to the test of hard racing on the track. Plastic panels absorb the most abuse of any material, and pop back into place. The greenhouse style body also leads to quick and easy replacement of fenders, doors, and quarter panels when the need arises.

Introducing Premium Adjustable Body Braces

We’re very excited about these new Premium Adjustable Body Braces, and we think racers will be too. They’re available in three options to meet any racers needs - flexible nylon, lightweight aluminum, or durable steel. All three high-quality options allow for fast and easy adjustments.

The steel version is the strongest and most durable. The aluminum is the lightest of the three options, giving the ultimate in weight savings. The nylon with aluminum ends is the most flexible, meaning the braces can take a hit and pop back into place.  All three feature an anodized finish to resist weathering and corrosion.

These braces are sold in pairs.

ABC NextGen Body Wins Oxford 250

After many years of coming up just short, Johnny Clark broke through for his first win in the illustrious Oxford 250 this August with his ABC NextGen Chevrolet Camaro. 

Nearly half of the competitors at the event have mounted the new body on their cars, commenting how much they enjoy the updated look and ease of installation.

The win was the biggest scored thus far by a driver using the new ABC NextGen Body.  Although it has been out on the track for two seasons now, the body is gaining popularity.  With its recent approval by most tracks and sanctions, many drivers have made the switch or are planning to move to the updated body for 2021...meaning more banner wins are on the way.  Click here to read more about Clark's win.

The Mustang MD3 Nose is here

This past spring, after the introduction of the very popular MD3 Camaro nose, we introduced a Mustang version. All accessories to complete the front kit are universal, making it easy for Ford fans to outfit their Street Stock or metric chassis race cars.  Like the Camaro the nose is specially designed for those types of car.  It is narrower and has less of a recess on the front so dirt won't get stuck on the nose.

This nose has options for full fenders or half fenders for racers who fabricate their own doors.  Other accessories includes a hood pin bracket, front bumper, nose graphic ID kit, nose screen, wear strips, and a scooped hood to complete a mean-looking front clip.
