No Turbo’s, Super Chargers allowed. Stock headers allowed only. Stock engine includes any chip used. If officials find anything changed, the driver will be fined and now allowed on track.

4. TIRE ELIGIBILITY: DOT approved street tires ONLY, minimum tread wear rating 300, no wider than 60 series tires; NO exceptions.

5. RIMS: Steel Rims ONLY. After market rims OK, but must be the same size all around with no less than three (3) inch off set wheels. Maximum width, seven (7) inches. No wheel spacers allowed.

6. ROLL CAGE AND STRUCTURE: Professionally made full roll cage required. A poorly built, improperly mounted, or badly engineered roll cage will not be permitted. At minimum, cage must include: Full front and rear hoop, appropriately braced to each other along the roofline: two driver-side door bars (X-design will be acceptable; appropriated mail-hoop backstays with no bends, located as close to 45 degrees from horizontal as practical; one main hoop diagonal; appropriate spreader plates and gussets; complete 360 degree welds of all joints. Each major load-bearing member must be formed from its own single, continuous tube. Shoulder harness bars strongly encouraged, and virtually necessary for proper shoulder-harness mounting. In some applications (the attachment point of all shoulder harnesses must be between zero (0) and 15 degrees lower than the seat-entry point); dash bars strongly encouraged.

C. All attachment points on the vehicle must be selected and reinforced as necessary so that, in an accident, the cage will not punch through, tear, or grossly distort the attachment point. Spreader plates, backing panels, gussets, and/or reinforcing elements are required to meet this goal. Cages mounted to rusty, thin, under-supported or otherwise improper attachment points will not pass technical inspection.
