I would like to take my Super Comp dragster and use it to compete in Top Dragster. Will I need to add a rear wing to my car in order to be allowed to race? If so, are there any specific rules as to how the wing needs to be configured?
In the 2012 NHRA Rulebook, under Top Dragster (Section 6B), page 8, Airfoil, you will find your answer. The Rulebook states, “A rear wing is mandatory on all cars that exceed 200 mph; minimum area 360 square inches, maximum 750 square inches, minimum height 55 inches (measured vertically from tailing edge to ground). Spill plates must be flat/straight and parallel and measure a minimum of 50 square inches each. Leading edge of wing may be no more than 10 inches forward of the centerline of rear axle. Wing may not be configured or installed so as to generate negative downforce or lift. Any adjustment or movement during run prohibited.”
