A easy, but detailed wing design gives loads of “sling” clearance for filth and particles from the rear tires. A full number of gurney choices on the rear of the wing provides racers a number of heights to trim to, relying on the extent of traction. The wing side-dams are completed off with a bit of inspiration from immediately with the forefront angled and already in assault mode.
