Tuesday Tech Question (07/09)
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’m running a low eight second Super Pro dragster and I would like to use a head and neck restraint system. I was told I would still need to use my neck collar. Is this correct?

Head & Neck Harold,
In the 2013 NHRA Rulebook, section 4A, page 9, it states “If SFI Spec 3.3 neck collar is required and driver opts to use an SFI 38.1 head and neck restraint system instead, then SFI Spec 3.3 head sock or SFI Spec 3.3 skirted helmet mandatory.”
