Hey race car guys:

  Where is the best place to mount a roll bar?  I can't find anything heavy enuf to instill confidence.

All possible mounting spots are in sheet metal.  The proper way to mount the rollbar is with 1/8" plates on the underside to spread the load as wide as possible.

Check your sacntioning body for specific rules.  Me thinks SCCA may require 3/16" backing-plates.  Alternatively, weld-in 3/16" stock and create a 'box' between the floorboard and vertical surfaces.  This will provide ample distribution area.
