Tuesday Tech Question (12/31)
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’.
In the new 2014 Rulebook for the Summit Racing Equipment Jr. Drag Racing League I see that a rule has been added concerning the body side panels. Are “windows” in the side panels an acceptable solution?

Side Panel Scott,
The new rule states that, “Any portion of the body side panels that extend upward into the driver’s line of sight must be clear and permit an unobstructed horizontal view for a minimum of 180 degrees.” For further clarification to this rule, please refer to the guidelines posted on NHRARacer.com.
