4.

All vehicles participating in track driving events must contain a minimum 5BC fire extinguisher, except for those in the Street classes. The fire extinguisher must be properly charged and securely mounted within the passenger compartment convenient to the driver. If the vehicle contains a fire bottle extinguishing system instead of a portable fire extinguisher, it must meet the same minimum 5BC specification, must have a head which will cover the driver and the front seat passenger (if a passenger seat is provided), and another head which will cover the engine, and the driver must be able to actuate the bottle without releasing the seat belt or harness.

5.

Pedal travel: All pedals shall move freely and brakes must not exhibit pedal "fade" or sponginess.

6.

Hazardous Objects: All objects that could cause injury or impair the movements of the driver shall be removed (CB's, radar detectors, add-on speakers, etc.), however, a securely mounted radar detector is considered safer than bare, exposed brackets on the dash or windshield.

7.

Cleanliness: The entire interior shall be free of loose objects.

8.

The interior, such as seats, door panels, etc., must be present during timed runs and securely installed on vehicles in the Street, Production, and Improved classes.

9.

Video cameras and similar auxiliary equipment within the passenger compartment must be securely mounted, and must have a secondary attachment or tether to keep such items from causing harm if the weakest point of the primary attachment fails.

10.

If batteries are installed in the passenger compartment (allowed only in Modified), wet cell batteries must be in a marine battery box, and sealed batteries not in such a box must have the positive terminal connection insulated.

11.

Rollbars, if required, must meet specifications as defined in the Drivers Education section.

E.Miscellaneous Recommendations

1.

The brakes should be bled prior to each event and fluid changed yearly. New brake pads should be properly broken in prior to coming to the track.

2.

The vehicle should be in proper alignment not only for tire wear, but proper handling.

3.

Avoid mounting new street tires immediately before a driving event. The track is not the proper place to break them in.

4.

Keep the underside of the vehicle clean. Air-cooled engines will run at lower temperatures if all surfaces are clean.
