NHRA Tech Bulletin

SFI announced late last night that 3.2A/5 suits made prior to 2009 by Impact Racing have been decertified effectively immediately.

As a result, and per NHRA’s Rule Book, those products are no longer allowed for use at NHRA sanctioned events. 
 
NHRA has spent the morning speaking with the Division Directors who will be conducting events this weekend, as well as manufacturers and suppliers of certified products.   There is limited inventory available and the manufacturers and suppliers can overnight product to racers for use this weekend.

NHRA will work on site at planned events with the racers to do everything possible to assure the racers can comply with NHRA’s Rule Book.
