Another thought. Since you only drive the van 3 times a year, how about selling it and buying/making a trailer for your racecar? You could start with a junked travel trailer and go from there to do it for cheap.

Then for the 3 times a year you need to go to the track, just rent or borrow a basic truck or van to pull it. Youd probably save more than your yearly fuel bill in the plates and insurance you wont need to keep up on the van. Dont know how your area works, so youd have to do the math to see if its worth it.
