Default good reference chart for track saftey

What you need to run at the track and comply with the rules.

FWIW, went to BMP last Thurs and the head staging guy didn't see me after I staged. Ran 12.6 and the guy at the ticket booth said "Immediatley head to the front of staging" ???? I asked the what did I do? He just said he did see my Helmet. So needless to say they're crackin down on safety. -Mark

I believe BMP is an IHRA track so some of you all can get away with a little more...im just happy 11.49 is the roll cage requirement instead of 11.99

Yeah, a roll cage has no place in a street car, well, I wouldn't want one in any car I would be using for any practical purposes, too. What are these "competition licenses" they mention, though? It says IHRA tracks require them?

Competition licenses are required for 9.99 at NHRA and 9.49 (i believe) at IHRA sanctioned tracks. Basically 6 passes have to be made proving you can handle the car at these speeds and faster.
They also require a full physical to be had within 30 days of getting the license.
As for the roll cage comment, my feeling is that if you have your car going that fast you need the cage. It's only there for your saftey.

Okay what is the story on T-topped cars? I have heard about BMP treating them just like a convertable as far as the rules go. I would think that they would be considered a hard topped car as long as the T-tops are installed.
