Was watching the million live stream this morning. I didn’t see a single window net on any of the door cars. Has the requirements been changed? Or just no one using them and no one cares?

This requirement, plus other requirements aren't being followed by some at the millions I've raced at. It doesn't matter who the promoter is, they want race entries.

6.39 or slower, there's no regulations.

You're legal no matter where you go, 6.39 or slower.

Pajama pants are legal, 6.39 or slower. Smile

I could care less if it's of importance to the other guy, to be legal.

None of my biz.

You have never raced in a $50k to win no mind in any of the actual million races!

That said there is no tech, no safety enforcement of the NHRA rules at any of these big $ gambler races.

I was being respectful to promoters of the millions I raced at, that don't pay the full amount based on car count.

As for the $50K+ to win, you are wrong again on your stupid wrong assumptions.

Prove it or STFU! Post the video of you competing at a $50k race. What’s stupid is your constant need to LIE here in an attempt to make yourself relevant.

Nobody STFU because you ordered them to.
And since you challenged his attendance, it’s up to you to prove he wasn’t there.

Mike the 6.39 and slower statement is not entirely true. Yes 6.40 and slower a cage and thus a net is not required. Now it has been 15 years since I let my silver sfi certificate expire. When I was a tech inspector back the in Div2champ at least according to the division tech director, if the car had a full cage, even though it runs 6.40 or slower the net was still required because it is considered part of the cage. Not my decision just how we were told to interpret the rule.

^^^This^^^

The #1 Mental Mess of a loser B1tch, trying to justify his delusional assumptions.

As for your "$50k race" again.... get your wrong assumptions right; I stated "$50K+ to win", work on your comprehension skills boy! Wink

Now, like the above wrong assumption & others in the past. I'll prove it my way, like the others in PM to Bucky. Then you can go beg, grovel or whatever else you do to your daddy & get the proof.

Bucky, let me know if you want the proof. Big Grin

Just had my truck certified for 8.50 and slower, I don't even have the brackets for a window net.

This was at Div 2 finals, I mainly run 6.50s so it wasn't a priority but did it just in case.

I like when you get all pi$$ed off & go into mental turmoil. You get all tongue tied or should I say, keyboard finger twisted "price" or "z". Laughing very hard

I know you're a Wanna-Be stickler for black & white wording; again.... $50K++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ races!

The last thing I would do, is get pi$$ed off/distracted on a forum while "enjoying a great day in the mountains of Colorado." Wink

Requirements? What sanctioning body sanctions the Million? Safety, we don't need no stinkin' tech this is big money. Do they even tech cars at any of these events? I remember a video of a guy getting out of his car to argue with the starter at a big money race and he didn't have a fire jacket on.

I've seen shorts and a fire jacket as I'm sure track officials as well. In NJ that would not fly. The NJ State Police used to and probably still do police the race tracks. I was kicked out of the track 36 years ago by a trooper because I was only 17 and racing. Had to be 18 back then by State racing commission.

This is how tech goes:
"Where do I go thru tech?"
" Is your check good you just gave me?"
"Yes"
"OK you're good to go"
