“Inside the CCR” is a new item to the News section of Speed News. Each month, we’ll highlight some important and maybe lesser known sections of the CCR to serve as refresher course for NASA members nationwide.
5.4 Gas Cylinders
All compressed air bottles/gas cylinders with a pressure of over two hundred pounds per square inch (200 PSI) must be securely fastened vertically so as not to topple over or shall be fully enclosed in a structure, such as a rollaway or crash cart.
5.2 Pets at the track
Some tracks prohibit pets (including dogs) and/or have special rules regarding pets. It is recommended that all pets be left at home. However, should a pet be brought to a track that allows pets, the following conditions apply: The owner is solely responsible for the actions of his/her pets. This means cleaning up after them and being held legally liable if their pets bite another pet or a human. Additionally, all pets must be kept on a leash, in a cage, or in a vehicle at all times. No pets are allowed in the pit lane at any time.
16.2.1 Re-Inspection- Alteration/Damage
A vehicle must be re-inspected by a Tech Inspector or a NASA authorized shop, if any of the following has occurred:
1.Been involved in a major crash.
2. Deemed a new inspection is necessary by indications of notes in the Logbook.
3.Vehicles that have had safety equipment altered or damaged.
4. Missing required Annual Tech Sticker.
Tech Inspectors should not disassemble any part themselves. They should leave it up to the competitors and their crews. If the inspection is being performed as part of the normal impound inspection process the competitor will bear the cost of disassembly and re-assembly.
