Safety Requirements

Driver

1. Safety rules will be strongly enforced in this class. You will be required to have a full fire suit, a minimum full face DOT approved helmet (Snell SA2000 or above helmet recommended), along with racing gloves, a 4 or 5 point racing harness, a good quality window net with a quick release latch, adequate roll bar padding, and an aluminum racing seat. Racing boots, a neck collar or head & neck restraint is highly recommended.

Car

1. Although we are strongly encouraging people to build and work on their own cars, if you have little or no experience putting in a safe roll cage, contact a good welder to help you install a good quality roll cage, your racing seat, and your safety belt and window net mounts.

2. All cars will have a minimum of a 4 post roll cage. The minimum round or square tubing size is 1 1/2” x .095 thickness, no exhaust tubing or old rusty well pipe allowed. The rollover bar will be behind the driver’s head, with the upper halo section constructed to give the driver plenty of head clearance & protection to provide safety in the event of a rollover. All cars will have a minimum of 3 driver’s side door bars, as well as a single or an X door bar on the passenger side. A 30” wide by 12” tall by 1/8” thick driver’s side doorplate is required on all cars (minimum size). No removing of any interior door panels except for door bar clearance. All doors must be bolted, welded or chained shut. The back of the seat must be secured to the horizontal back bar of your roll cage. An aluminum racing seat is mandatory.

3. Front Hoops may be added for safety as well as keeping the car from bending so easy. 1 1/2” round tubing maximum (no heavy square tubing or channel). You may build your radiator support rather than using the stock core supports. Stock bumpers & all front OEM sheetmetal are still required.

4. Rear bars will be a maximum of 1 ¾” round or square tubing. The rear bars may extend rearward from the top of the cage behind the driver, angling down to the rear of the trunk area. You may also have 2 bars extending back from the middle section of the back hoop, rearward. No bars may extend through the rear of your trunk area. Your may have an X in between your two rear diagonal bars. The rear strut towers may be supported with your back bars, to help keep your strut towers in place. We will be allowing bars to extend through the front firewall, for added leg protection for the driver. These bars may attach to the strut towers, but may not go any farther forward. Cars must have shut off switch next to driver window which can easily be reached from the outside of the car.

5. The front windshield opening must be covered with wire mesh. Three vertical driver protection bars are required in the windshield ahead of the driver.

Bumpers

1. We will allow you to beef up & secure your bumpers to your frame mounts, with a maximum of 1/8” thick angle iron or flat stock. You may add one piece of 1 ¾” x .090 (maximum size) tubing between your frame horns (both front & rear) to give you a solid place to attach your chain/cable hook-up. You may attach expanded sheet metal or screen in front of your radiator to protect from debris & mud.

Towing Hookups

1. All cars are required to have a cable or chain to hook up to on the front and rear of the car in the event of needing to tow your car off the track.

2. You will be allowed to add one piece of 1 3/4” x .090 (maximum size) tubing between your frame horns (both front and rear) to have a solid place to attach your chain/cable hook-up. Make sure your tubing is welded solid & that your chain or cable will life your car up safely & square with the track (not just around one side of the frame horn).

Gas Tanks & Batteries

1. If the stock gas tank is located ahead of the rear axle, it may remain in place as is (Skid plate is highly recommended!). Double check the gas lines and the tank straps, replace them if they are worn. All stock tanks located behind the rear end must be removed and relocated to the trunk area or replaced with an 8 gallon (or smaller) fuel cell and place it in the forward area of your trunk. These tanks must have a metal frame to hold the tanks in place, and must be strapped in place securely. A couple loops of plumbers strap will not suffice for this, these tanks must be secured solid. If you have a tank in the trunk area, you must patch your entire rear firewall with sheet metal, so you can’t see any of the trunk area from inside of the driver’s cockpit area. All fuel pumps are required to have a Kill Switch for the fuel pump shut off, located in plain site, in the window opening behind the driver.

2. All batteries that are mounted inside the driver’s compartment must be completely enclosed in a marine-type box with a lid, and mounted securely.

Complete Stock Bodies

1. Watch how much that you take off because Hartford Speedway will reserve the right to place weight at it’s discretion to compensate for the amount of body removed.

2. All body panels will remain stock front to rear. There will be no rear or side windows of any kind made out of any material…..none!

3. All glass must be removed 100%. All mirrors, upholstery, insulation inside & under the hood, carpet, tail lights & headlights, all loose trim on the exterior of the body, trailer hitches, and aftermarket add-ons must be removed from the car. Any material burnable in the driver’s cockpit area must be removed. The original hood & trunk latches must be removed and replaced with a quick release hood pin system. Any car with a hatchback can weld or bolt your hatchback solid. All holes in the floorboard and front firewall must be covered securely with sheet metal. Both front & rear bumpers must be strapped or chained to the frame, to prevent dragging. When you remove the vinyl covering on your dashboard, you may cover up the “ugly stuff” with a piece of aluminum or sheet metal. There will be no gutting of any interior or exterior panels, except for making room for the door bars. Make sure all loose glass or material inside of the body panels are vacuumed out good. All loose rust flakes or trim must be removed from your cars. Use a sledgehammer on your bumpers to knock off all of the loose material on the bottom side of your car.

4. Before your car will be allowed on the track, make sure the cockpit area as well as the trunk area is clean & vacuumed out 100%!

Steering & Suspension

1. All steering and suspension will remain stock with no modifications front to rear & side to side. You will be allowed to have 1” of camber on the right front tire and no more than ½” on any one of your other 3 tires, which will be measured with a 24” carpenters square. Your wheel base will remain within ¼” side to side (rear steer).

2. You may have a quick release steering wheel for safety, but will have the complete stock steering assembly. Your brake and gas pedal will remain stock, but you can have a toe clip for a throttle return strap.
