Need a second car? Forget the used car lot, buy a ‘street legal’ Indy car for $90K

If I had a dollar for every race fan that has ever told me how much he or she would love to own an actual Indy car, I could retire to Hawaii tomorrow.

But now it’s true: if you have a cool $89,995, you indeed can now own your own built-from-scratch Indy car – with only 2,300 original miles on it – and drive it on the street as a regular commuter ride!

Imagine pulling up to the office every day and the heads that will turn and the tongues that will wag.

I was tipped off to an ad on the Craigslist Las Vegas site and did some checking. Sure enough, the story is legit.

A gentleman in Wisconsin (I’ve reached out to him and am awaiting a response) has a one-of-a-kind unique Indy car for sale.

“Street legal Indycar! 1 off CUSTOM, beautiful & FAST! Amazing and useable — $89995 (Milwaukee)” is how the headline for the ad reads.

Now, you’re probably wondering why a car in the Milwaukee area is being advertised in Las Vegas.

Actually, it’s a pretty simple and logical explanation: the car will be titled and registered in Nevada, which apparently has less restrictions on what can and can’t be driven on a street or highway than in other states.

For example, if the car were to be street legal in, say, Illinois, it would have to have full fender flares covering all four tires.

But if you think plunking down nearly $90 grand will allow you to rub tires at Indy or Sonoma or Long Beach with the likes of defending IndyCar champ Josef Newgarden or 2016 champ Simon Pagenaud, forget it. The car won’t pass that kind of tech.

Still, having a one-of-a-kind unique ride cruising down Las Vegas Boulevard or across the Hoover Dam would make it – and you, the driver – a definite sight to see.

Oh, one more thing: while the car will be titled and registered in Nevada, the ad says the current owner will be willing to ship it to you (within reason, likely) – for FREE!

Now, if you live in, say, Dubai, there’ll likely be some extra shipping charges tacked on. (But if you live in Dubai, you probably can afford to buy a real deal Indy car for probably a cool half-milion bucks, anyway.)

And if we do get a response from the owner, we’ll give you a bit more insight into the car, how it was built, its history and more.

NBC Sports and Feld Motor Sports announced that Peacock and the NBC family of networks will stream all 31 races of the combined Monster Energy Supercross, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and the newly created SuperMotocross World Championship beginning January 7, 2023 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California and ending October 14 in the place where Supercross was born: the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The combined series will create a 10-month calendar of events, making it one of the longest professional sports’ seasons in the United States.

The agreement is for multiple years. The season finale will air live on Peacock and the USA Network.

Peacock will present live coverage of all races, qualifying and heats across both series. The 31 total races will mark a record for the combined number of Supercross and Pro Motocross events that NBC Sports will present in a single season.

NBC, USA Network and CNBC will provide coverage of all races, including the SuperMotocross World Championship Playoffs and Final, through 2023 and beyond. For more information about the Peacock streaming service, click here.

“With our wide array of live and original motorsports offerings, Peacock is a natural home for Supercross and Pro Motocross races,” said Rick Cordella, Chief Commercial Officer, Peacock. “We’re looking forward to providing fans with an easily-accessible destination to find every race all season long, including the exciting finish with the newly formed SuperMotocross World Championship.”

MORE: A conversation about media rights created the new SuperMotocross World Championship Series

The NBC family of networks has been home to Supercross for the past several seasons and this is a continuation of that relationship. The media rights for both series expired at the end of 2022, which allowed Supercross and Motocross to combine their efforts.

In fact, it was that conversation that led to the formation of the SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX).

The SMX series will begin on September 9, 2023 after the conclusion of the Pro Motocross season. Points will accumulate from both series to seed the SMX championship, which creates a record number of unified races.

“The SuperMotocross World Championship adds a new dimension to the annual Supercross and Pro Motocross seasons that will result in crowning the ultimate World Champion,” said Stephen C. Yaros, SVP Global Media and Supercross for Feld Motor Sports. “We are thrilled to be extending our relationship with NBC Sports so our fans can watch all the racing action streaming live on Peacock and the option to also watch select rounds on NBC, USA Network and CNBC.”

Complete 2023 coverage schedules for Supercross, Pro Motocross and the SuperMotocross World Championship on Peacock, NBC, USA Network and CNBC will be announced in the near future.
