Tuesday Tech Question (03/18)

The Tuesday Tech Question is a fun section where prospective technical inspectors or anyone who wants to get a better idea of how to work the NHRA Rulebook can test their knowledge and search abilities. If you have an NHRA Rulebook, try and find the answer to the question in the book before looking down at the answer. If you don’t have a Rulebook but are an NHRA Member, you can download a pdf at nhra.com under ‘Member Benefits’.


I have decided to do some racing in your Super Street class this season.  My car does not currently have a parachute, but I was told I will need to add one to run Super Street.  Is this statement true?

Parachute Pat



Parachute Pat,

In the Super Street Category, a parachute is mandatory on any car that runs 150 mph or faster.  If your car will run at these speeds, then you will be required to install a parachute prior to racing.
