This is constructive criticism. I feel that bumper has a huge moment arm based on how you are securing it. In race conditions I don't think the supports will keep it straight or it will flex. If it flexes, it will crack and break. The choice of what appears to be 3/16 thick stock will be a contributing factor for any bending or breaking.

One last thing. I would drill out mounting holes large enough to put a support tube in and weld it back up.

Other than that, it looks fine (may be disproportianatly beefy). I read a book on fabricating once so now I'm an expert.
