Maxim Racing Inc produced its first Sprint Car chassis in February of 1989, this was to be the beginning of a great success story. The first prototype, Maxim chassis number 89-025-5, was driven by Johnny Herrera at the Florida All Stars Sprint Week.

On January 3, 1990 a legend in Sprint Car racing was born, the K-car or KLS (Kinser Lightweight Standard). Developed by Chuck Merrill and Karl Kinser this car, piloted by Steve Kinser went on to win four consecutive Knoxville Nationals. The K-car has proven to be the most dominant Sprint Car chassis ever built, having won fourteen World of Outlaws Championships, ten Knoxville Nationals titles and six National Sprint Car Poll Manufacturer of the Year awards.

By 2001 Maxim Racing were building 304 chassis a year, and the cars were not only consistently winning races across the US but also in other countries such as Australia.
