doesn't mean that it's not needed, it's just that you haven't been caught.. obviously they're not as strict, but

it says 5 or 6 point roll bar needed for 10.99 or faster. would this qualify as a 5 point roll bar?

well, i know its a 4 point without the cross bar. i dont know if they count the crossbar as another point or not, as it meets one of the exsisting points. thats why im asking. also, i plan to get a 1 peice driveshaft made when i swap to a th400. the driveshaft will have to go through the rear crossmember so if the front u joint breaks. it cant drop down, would that count as a driveshaft loop, or do i still need to buy an aftermarket one even though it wont do anything?

No you can't. And to say a driveshaft loop wont do anything is plain dumb.

ok, but if you saw underneath my car, youd understand why i said the driveshaft loop really wont do much in my app if i have a 1 peice shaft. they are cheap so i will get one anyhow, it doesnt hurt, and is a requirment.

Are there any reference charts for what the 1/8 tracks require?

You gotta keep this in mind.. Safety rules aren't put in place to bust balls! They are there because something bad has happened in the past, so they put a rule in place to protect YOU!!! JUST FOLLOW THE RULES!!!!! It's really simple, and I don't have to see you get hauled off with body parts missing!!!!!
