There have been many questions concerning the rules of this track. This is a VIPER FRIENDLY track. Safety is a concern of the V-10 Nationals as well as any Track we host an event. However we understand that it is nearly impossible to obtain all the requirements of some Drag racing Venues:
The following is the safety requirements:
Helmets are needed (if you do not have one loaners will be available)
Attention 9 second cars or faster. You must have the following:
Jacket and pants
If anyone has any questions concerning the saftey Issues please contact me via Email at [email protected] or 502-376-1484. the above information is Directly from the track, If you have any questions do not call the track call me or contact me for specific questions. The track office will not have the details of the agreement reached concerning these issues.
AGAIN THIS IS A VIPER FRIENDLY TRACK!!!!
LOOKS LIKE THIS EVENT WILL BE THE MOST ATTENDED TO DATE! See you there!
I did not think that the NHRA requires racing shoes and gloves for 9 second cars. Only Jacket, neck restraint and pants...all of which must be SFI approved with appropriate sewn on markings.
I don't plan on buying shoes and gloves, but will have the rest of the required 9 second "uniform".
Please feel free to call me, David, if you need any help with tech, rules, or anything at all.
Thanks again for all your hard work!!!
JUST CHECKED THE LATEST RULES FROM THE NHRA 2004 RULE BOOK...........I quote
" drivers in 9.99 to 7.50 e.t. of front engine, open bodied cars (or closed bodied cars without the OEM or steel firewall) with nitrous oxide, supercharger, turbocharger or any car with an automatic transmission in the driver compartment (not protected by a floor) must wear Jacket, Pants meeting SFI spec 3.2A/15 gloves and shoes or boots meeting SFI spec 3.3/5 mandantory"
What that means is if you are driving a car with exposed powertrain or without a firewall, you are required to wear the shoes and gloves. The nitrous and supercharger mean nothing without having the vehicle meet the firewall, frame and flooring requirements.
For typical full bodied cars like the Viper (assuming we all have factory floor and firewall), we are only required to wear SFI spec 3.2A/5 Pants/Jacket and neck collar.
They have high speed internet acess at no additional charge... to keep everyone updated with that day's results. Complementary deluxe breakfast bar is included at no additional cost.
Room service is provided by Ruby's Tuesday www.rubytuesday.com(next door), they will also do food services delivered to the heated pool. Next door is a Outlet mall for any of the wives that need to catch up on the shopping. The state of the art exercise facility is inside the ice skating rink(J.P.Igloo)which is also next door. Within J.P.Igloo www.jpigloo.com is a sports bar/restaurant Beef O' Brady's. www.beefobradys.com
Within a 20 minute drive is 30 golf courses and 30-45 minute drive the Bradenton/Sarasota Gulf beaches for scuba diving, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, para-sailing.

Sweet. Already made the call to the wife. Have to bring the family this trip if I come as I am going to the superbowl the prior weekend and while I am a good negotiater, I am not that good. So if I come the family will be with me. Will still be a hard sell as she is not into cars at all.
