Default 2010 NHRA Rule changes (Please Read)

Attention Racers: Our tech inspectors and officials have noticed a few of our racers may have overlooked some of these updated rules issued by NHRA for 2010. Please review the following rules. There are know exceptions to these rules. All cars and racers in competition must comply. Please make necessary changes, our biggest race this year is next month and you don't want to miss it due to a tech infraction.

Affecting all classes in 2010, where applicable, and to reduce the chance of fuel leaks, all NHRA-accepted fuel lines will be required to use ends that are specifically designed for the type of fuel line being used to reduce fuel leaks. To prevent transmission leaks, all cars running 10.99 seconds or quicker must have an NHRA-accepted locking-type dipstick in the transmission.

To improve the strength-mounting point of parachutes on all vehicles running more than 150 mph, NHRA announced that parachutes must have their own independent mounting sleeved half-inch-minimum steel bolts or pins. Material around the holes for the bolts/pins must be equal to or greater than the bolt/pin size.

The Sportsman classes will have increased requirements for firesuits. All drivers in cars running 7.49 seconds or quicker will be required to wear SFI Spec 3.2A/15 firesuits. In addition, E.T. Motorcycle riders will be required to use Kevlar-lined gloves or gloves equipped with slide buttons, the same requirement currently in the Pro Stock Motorcycle category. For improved fire protection, Super Street drivers (10.90)will be required to wear SFI Spec 3.2A/1 pants in addition to the SFI Spec 3.2A/1 jackets already worn.
