Tuesday Tech Question


I currently compete in the Super Pro class at a local level, but I am looking to begin running some Top Sportsman events in the near future.  With respect to driver’s suit, clothing, neck restraint etc, what will I need to compete in these events?

Top Sportsman Tom,


Per the 2012 NHRA Rulebook, Section 6A Top Sportsman, page 6, in this class “A head and neck restraint device/system meeting SFI 38.1 mandatory and must display a valid SFI label… An SFI 38.1 head and neck restraint device can be used with, or without, a neck collar; when a neck collar is not used, an SFI 3.3 head sock or SFI Spec 3.3 skirted helmet is required.”  The Rulebook goes on to state, “Jacket and pants or suit meeting SFI Spec 3.2A/15, gloves meeting SFI Spec 3.3/5, and boots or shoes meeting SFI Spec 3.3/5 mandatory.”
