Tuesday Tech Question (04/22)
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’.
Am I allowed to install a dry-sump oil system on my 1969 Camaro SS/CA car? I know that there are some other Super Stock combinations that allow a dry-sump, but I am not sure if I am one of those combinations.

Super Stock Stan,
No you are not. Per the 2014 NHRA Rulebook, dry-sump oiling systems are prohibited from being used in all Super Stock classes other than SS/ES, SS/FS, SS/GS, SS/AX, SS/BX, SS/CX, SS/DX, SS/EX, and SS/VX.
