SAFETY: All NHRA/IHRA and Local Track Safety rules apply for car and driver, including the use of an oil retention device and/or engine diaper is MANDATORY.

Aftermarket wings and spoilers are permitted. A hood must be used; scoop or hood must cover entire induction system. Exceptions are throttle bodies or carburetors on naturally aspirated and nitrous oxide assisted engines along with intake manifolds/throttle bodies on boosted engines. Those may protrude through the hood for clearance, if needed. Forward facing hood scoops/turbocharger/supercharger inlets are permitted. OEM/Lexan windows are permitted.

All other weight bars, pucks, etc., must use a minimum two 1/2-inch diameter SAE Grade 8 bolts for attachment per 100 pounds.

ENGINE/POWER ADDERS: The cubic inch limit for any naturally aspirated or power adder combination is 965 cubic inches. All SMALL BLOCK combinations must retain stock bore spacing (4.400) and a maximum 10.000-inch deck height. All engines must have a diaper, belly pan or oil retention device. Nitrous oxide is permitted to run any type multi-stage nitrous system with no restrictions. Nitrous entries must have bottle securely contained in a bottle bracket. Maximum bore spacing for all boosted combinations is 5.000 or less. Turbocharger combinations are limited to a maximum 118mm single turbo or a set of 88mm twin turbochargers. Refer to weight addition/reduction section below for twin turbocharger clarification.

The maximum specifications for a single turbocharged combination are COMPRESSOR WHEEL (inducer-118mm tip to tip, exducer-141mm maximum) and TURBINE/EXHAUST WHEEL (inducer-130mm maximum, exducer-114mm maximum).

The maximum diameter of the housing bore at the leading edge of the wheel may not exceed 2mm more than the maximum allowable turbocharger size permitted. Compressor map groove will not exceed .250 of an inch. Turbochargers will be verified by measuring the housing bore at the leading edge of the impeller wheel and must retain the contour of the compressor housing, stepped or clipped compressor wheels are prohibited. Inserts or reducers to achieve inlet or outlet dimensions are prohibited. Any inconsistent modifications to compressor or turbine wheel, blades, hubs, cover or housing beyond accepted commercially available manufacturing process is PROHIBITED. Supercharger combinations are limited to a single centrifugal supercharger at a F3-139 maximum, small block and big block. Maximum size on all twin centrifugal supercharged combinations is base F1X, (F1X-12 is prohibited). Roots superchargers are restricted to a 14-71 maximum. Screw superchargers are permitted on a small block combination only and must be run on a 275 drag radial, no big tire option. Screw superchargers are prohibited on big blocks, 481X and HEMIs. Dual power adders are strictly prohibited across all combinations. All forms of power adders (nitrous, turbochargers and superchargers) must be commercially available to the general public for purchase and use.

Any electronic ignition system is allowed, see below for weight additions/reductions. Computer/Data Recorders are permitted. EXHAUST: Mufflers or inserts are required on all cars except for turbo cars. Exhaust may exit underneath car or out the front fenders/valance but must not affect timing or staging beams. CO2 SYSTEM AND LINE: The first TWO feet (minimum) of the line coming from the CO2 bottle must be 1/4" plastic line with push-locks. No braided steel lines direct from the CO2 bottle to ensure no nitrous oxide is being used. Braided steel line may be used after the first two feet of plastic/push-lock line to protect the line running through the firewall and/or around exhaust system.

INTERCOOLER: Any intercooler is permitted on gasoline combinations only. Must be securely mounted to chassis or mounts with preferred hardware. Water box must be contained in a safe environment with a top to enclose water/ice during the run. Intercooler combined with a methanol fueled combination is prohibited.
