What are the "Tech Inspections" consisting of? Nothing is mentioned on the website and some places are so restrictive that it is stupid to go. For instance why ca I run a stock seatbelt that is 40 years old, but I need my 5 way harness reinspected every few years? Or a helmet needs to be purchased even if mine is fine and ony 10 years old worn 5 times? Give some details please and I will bring one of my rides if the rules are reasonable to me.

I ran my black GTS twice at Pocono already before I added DR's on it. Both my rides have DR's now, so I would only do the straight line event as I do not have another set of rims and tires anymore (sold them off). I did not have an issue running at Pocono before with safety, but some of these places are getting so strict that it is silly to me to mod my car for a weekend event. I do not see any requirements posted and hence my question. My SRT is a bad boy and would do very well I feel for the straight pull and it does have roll bars in it, but nothing else. I mean it has the upgraded stuff-twin disk, Quaiffe, Mark Williams Axles and such but anyhow my helmet is probably 10+ years old, but I use it once a year when I quad or track one of my cars. Just don't want a hassle is all as my car is street and anyhow I'd love to go if I know I can run it. Pocono is 2 hours from my house.

Did you ever run into the helmet Nazis? again, my favorite is the stock seatbelts in my 68 GTO were okay, but a 5 way harness that looks new and is 5 years old is not good enough unless it was tagged with a recent inspection-lol. I'd love to take my DLM car there and represent-she is a BAD BITCH and looks like it jumped out a magazine.

This sounds like an awesome event. Think it's about 5-6 hours for me though... Not sure if I would bother running as my car is still bone stock.

You can view forms here: Downloads | SlipStreamRE

Safety IS the biggest concern since we have so many various platforms that attend. So use common sense and address any possible issues. If you have any specific questions, shoot us an email. [email protected]

As for the helmet, its going to need to be snell 2005 or newer. There is no way around that.

Hope that helps!

Again, the rules say you have to have your car inspected and I do not get my car inspected-none of my vehicles except my vana re iinspected. In NJ that means my emmissions-lol. So from your form, it says I can ony run if I answer yes to each question. Please clarify here if I can run without a state inspection on my Viper.

If its only the state inspection your concerned about, that can be waived. We had some cars with exhaust out the hood that also did not have inspection stickers. You would just check "No" and our tech will still sign off. Obviously some race cars are not street legal, but it adds a layer of assurance for those that are street legal

Our web/Graphic guy is in the hospital recovering from surgery, otherwise the website would be up to date and our flyer posted, but thank you.

Early pricing is the cheapest pricing we publicly offer, to get a discount code, you would need to contact one of our sponsors
