Off The Street Drags Vehicle Preparation

Technical inspection is a Self-Tech. You must fill out your tech card entirely (see GREEN highlighted areas of example tech card below) and hand it into PPIR staff near the Drag Strip Grid entry point. You will be given your vehicle sticker and allowed to enter the Drag Strip once PPIR Staff has collected your Tech Card. MAKE SURE YOUR VEHICLE IS INSPECTED AND READY TO GO PRIOR TO ARRIVING TO PPIR. 

  • YOU FILL OUT THE GREEN SECTIONS
  • PPIR STAFF FILLS OUT THE ORANGE SECTIONS

All vehicles must be presented ready to race. All vehicles must pass the self technical inspection prior to entering the racing surface.  It is the responsibility of each individual to make certain that his or her vehicle is track worthy.  PPIR reserves the right at ANY TIME during the event to not allow any vehicle on track which it deems to be unsafe or unsuited for track driving. The following items should be thoroughly inspected/set before arriving to the raceway:

  • Tires (good tread depth, sidewalls clear of damage, valve stems, etc.) must be no more than 5 years old
  • Tire pressures are properly set (refer to vehicle manufacturer settings)
  • All lug nuts are present and torque is set (refer manufacturer specifications)
  • Hubcaps and trimmings (if not secured by lug nuts) are removed from vehicle
  • No play in wheel bearings
  • Minimal play in steering linkage
  • Brake system in good condition (pads, rotors, lines, etc.)
  • Fluid levels are set (Engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering, coolant, brake fluid, etc.)
  • No fluid leaks from the vehicle of any kind
  • Vehicle is free of loose items (including the trunk)
  • Battery is properly secured
  • No exposed electrical wires
  • Hoses and lines are securely fastened and routed properly and safely
  • Fully functional seat belts in good condition (factory stock or better required)
  • Vehicle interior / exterior must be free and clear of sharp exposed edges
  • No part of the vehicle can be dragging on the ground.

Upon purchasing your driver entry fee at the gate, you will receive a Tech Card to fill out. The Tech Card must be turned in to PPIR Staff at the starting grid area of the drag strip prior to making the first pass of the day. The PPIR Staff will put a Tech Sticker on the windshield of the car after receiving the tech card filled out.
