nhra has required a roll bar for anything 11.99 or quicker for years but also I was told if it has a roll bar cage you have to have harness reguardless how fast it is so if your car runs 14.00 and has a roll bar you must have a harness. and if your car is fast a roll bar is a good idea I have 2 friends that have crashed at over 100 miles per hr. both had cages and both are still racing.both went to the hospital for several days but no doubt it saved their lives. ask yourself does your car go 100 on a pass.

Then why the hell did they give me so much guff last Sat. ? Said I needed a jacket and 5 point for anything faster than 12.49. I was only running 12.20 's
They were cracking down hard though. I wanted to squeeze, but was looking forward to staying for the bracket racing later that night. They were cracking down left and right. I should have just squeezed and left. I made it to like the quarters or semi's and didn't make it to the line fast enough on the final round and was DQ'd.

believe it or not, t-tops are pretty weak, but the reason they want you to have a roll bar and wearing a helmet is 1, glass breakage, 2, you wont get your lid peeled back if you roll it. it only takes a blow out or dropping a ball joint to flip a car.

It seems like the track is more strict for Bracket nights than for Thursday Test-n-Tune.
