Tuesday Tech Question (12/03)
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 a supercharged 23-T Altered that I will be running in Quick 8 at my local NHRA track and some NHRA Top Dragster. I was told that I will need a flame-retardant seat covering.

Seat Cover Steve,
You are correct. All front-engine open-bodied vehicles supercharged or turbocharged burning gas or alcohol must have a flame-retardant material-covered seat.
